I am a solid member of the POTC club. To me, POTC is a masterpiece of pinball game creation. A terrific theme combined with a different layout and an interesting variety in the objectives makes this a great game. Plus, I love a game where I actually might have a chance at getting to the final wizard mode. POTC is not easy but it is not downright impossible either. I think any pinball collection does well to have this game as it adds a unique and different experience. It is not as deep as say LOTR but there is some depth. There is a little wood chopping but not too bad. When people come over, POTC more than any other game is want they want to play ---> then when they sink the ship and defeat the Kracken and the "Yo-Ho Yo-Ho A Pirate's Life for Me" song plays, it delights to no end... Definitely in for a long term stay in my collection.
