First - the art is completely redrawn to avoid same printing issues WMS had. There will be no bleeding of any colors around inserts - and there are several other issues which I fixed. Both versions use the same art. All playfields are made on the most modern machines - the inserts are glued in by a robot and all coatings are done by robots (even the mixing of the materials for the robot is done by special automated systems with 100% accurancy), so no human errors occur here. The goal is to have perfection... This is the reason why I do not have different quality levels.
I have two different versions of the playfield as the TAF production used different inserts than the TAFG production. On TAF we have the rectangles with more facetts (right on the pic) and on TAFG the newer style with less facetts. In addition to that the arrow on the production version is the older, smaller style (left on the pic) instead of the newer wider style used on TAFG.
Let's get to the color question for the playfields. After checking ipdb.org and my contacts to former WMS people it was wanted to have a different look on the playfield colors.
In the past I have shopped many TAF and TAFG games and still have some here. They do have one thing together - all prodcution TAF had a darker green and a less pregnant bordoux on the carpet and backside of the book. Beside that there are strong variations in the purple which goes from light blue to purple. This has to be a purple and differences are caused by wrong mixture of the old manufacturers and fading due to the age of the print.
Next question - Is there a demand for a special edition with glittering effects? I have nice glitter in neon orange, green metallic and gold which could be used to highlight specific areas like the Addams logo in the center for example. Please let me know your thoughts...
I would love to start a poll here, but do not know how to put it in...
The timeframe is:
first ones will be able to ship early october.
Thanks for your feedback!
