    Name your favorite licensed pin and your favorite unlicensed pin. Then say which one you like more and vote for either the licensed or unlicensed pin in the poll.

    Best licensed game: LOTR
    Best unlicensed game: Medieval Madness

    LOTR is the superior pin

    As far an unlicensed pins go Whitewater immediately came to mind and would be my choice but there are a ton from the 80's and 90's (when i grew up) that are pretty solid, heck most of the greats are unlicensed; MM, AFM, WW, CV, TOM, FH ect.

    I feel that I like unlicensed pins more, but maybe that's because I look back at the Bally/William's days fondly and half of those were unlicensed.

    When I think of the best from both I think of the following
    Wh20 & AFM > MB & TZ

    Alien is the best licensed, Dialed In is the best unlicensed games, in my opinion.

    TWD and WH20 are a close second.

    Can some one explain the licence to me ?
    Does it mean the game is made from a copy of another existing product ?
    Or does it mean the owners of the content/show/band partnered in developing the game ?
    Can you make a pinball game from a character that is popular with out being a licenced game?

    Explain it slow for me please, I am new

    Licensed means you are using the intellectual property — trademarks and copyright — from another entity. So Game of Thrones is licensed. Cirqus Voltaire is not. In terms of making a game with a character, it depends upon whether that character is still protected by copyright. Mickey Mouse is protected. Houdini is not. I hope that helps.
