I played 2 games at VFW.....shot great but did not feel it had a lot of stuff on it relative to other JJP games. The 2 outside ramps and Gobstopper shots are very easy. Rest of shots more challenging. Never saw any magnet action on streams or the games I played or watched. Did not really liked the sound.

Game was really sharp looking! The LE blue has metallic flakes that look awesome.

Loved the small insert lights and how they change color.

Ball lock mech had very little action...I locked 1 ball.....but I liked how it looked. Worth the extra coins? Not in my view....but I like the invisiglass and power coat so looking at whole LE upgrade.

Overall I liked but did not love the game first try but going to give it some more plays before I decide if I want to add to the collection.

Quoted from Troz:

We'll be streaming Willy Wonka this evening at 6pm PDT from AYCE Gogi for anyone that wants to watch!

Glad to see this - thank you for doing this! The Wonka hype is dying down with that usual unfortunate delay JJP has of shipping the game after revealing it. I need me some Wonka fix.

Quoted from Lermods:

seems like a hasty decision to give up on wonka because potc has issues.if you dont like wonka game play, that’s different, but I don’t understand the link to potc.

I normally agree with both your and MKs posts....but I am with MK on this....it is not hasty...it is prudent. These prices at least for LE are $10k ish....that is crazy coin so I get him/others wanting to back off. I like Wonka and POTC but for those prices...not feeling the buys either.

"To whom much is given.....much is expected"

This is one of my favorite sayings...and if JPP wants to lead the way in the coins they collect for these games, they need to lead in quality, toys and code.

Quoted from txstargazer3:

So true! It seems this thread has lately been filling up with folks who dislike the game for one reason or another. That is cool, no game is liked by everyone.
There are also a lot of us that do like the game and are just waiting for more from JJP to have something to post about.

Not sure if it is dislike in isolation. All pinball is great - is why we are all on this forum. Of course some will not like certain games. However the buy decision has gotten much more difficult for many of us due to variety (good thing) and space and price (barriers). I can't thrash out this stuff with my family - they would try to have me committed if they knew how much these things really cost. So I like to thrash out/hear others thrash out on here. For me it is getting a lot tougher to rationalize a purchase at these prices if I am irked by the call outs or music for example - but l applaud and appreciate all the manufactures putting out all these new games and I wish I/others had tons of $ and unlimited space to buy a ton of games to support them. There was nothing better than going to the VFW and having so many games I liked to play and just be able to walk up and play them. Would love that in my crib.
