Fish tales is fun, but I couldn't stand the music, etc. And I wasn't a fan of the center ramp that takes up most of the pf. Fun game, just not my speed.
Flintstones is gorgeous to look at and has some amazing art. The smart ramps are really clever and the bowling shot is always fun.
Both are lighthearted pins great for family.
I prefer flintstones, but like both pins.
Have owned both at the same time and fish tales was much better for me and is one of the good deals you can still find
I have owned both and fish tales gets my vote. I sold flintstones because it sat more times than not with not single play on it each night. It's not a theme that grabs everybody and you can have long ball times.
Fish tales all day long.
FT for the win. Tougher game. Usually a fair bang for your buck.
FS could be good for families, but the kids will not know or care who the Flintstones are. Horrible looking, but a little better with the old school translite. Long play times that will make a good player yawn and, like Roadshow, has gone down in demand and value over the last year and a half for a reason. Wanted to like it and after a good first time around really dug in again when one sat for sale locally for $2200 for a while, but just didn't like it at all and could care less if I ever play it again. Ouch.
I think that there are a few "somethings". The game is a total charmer. The call outs, "How big was it??" It has the greatest video mode ever bar none. Does it really get any better than shooting people on jet skis? How many consecutive boat ramp shots can you make? Stretching the truth. It's great hillbilly action for the inner hillbilly in all of us.
so far count is 12 to 1 for fishtales and the only vote for flintstones if from a member with one for sale
