Ok, let's be honest...

I really like the original tv series and so looked forward to this pin's debut.

Like many, I've followed along with the spectacle that has played out on Pinside regarding it's appearance at Expo, first models out, early code and progress thus far. Eager to get some time on a machine, I've put quite a bit of money through one on location, over multiple visits, even though it meant an hour drive to do so. The last trip, I brought the family along to play some pins, bowl a bit, and have an afternoon out.

What happened next surprised me.

Though she normally sits off to the side and patiently waits for me to run out of money, my wife, who eschews playing on location as she feels it's a waste of money, decided to join me in a game of BM66. That one game turned into two, then three. Soon, I found her tugging on my sleeve asking for more quarters even though I had moved on.

She's now mentioned to me three times that she'd like to have this game in our home; the first pin she's ever expressed an interest in.

When asked what she enjoys about it, she likes the art, the clips on the lcd, the music, the rotating toy with the tiny television, and how the playfield is easy to see the ball and know what to do. She said it feels like an updated EM, simple, honest, and fun.

Ironically, as eager as I was to like this pin, I don't. Can't quite put my finger on it, but I just hoped for more.

The dilemma...what to do when your wife wants an expensive game that you don't care for, hmmmm.

What is fortunate is that there is such a large number of choices in today's market that appeal to different types of prospective players.
