    Hi -

    Need some thoughts on which to buy - so Im thinking about buying Monster Bash remake or Cactus Canyon Remake?

    Currently have MMR / AFM / Tron / and Iron Man Vault edition which Im going to be posting to sell shortly.

    Or maybe wait until Stern's next game - Back to the future?

    What kind of games do you like?

    MBr and CCr are kinda same but different. If monsters aren’t a top theme, I’d go CCr. But after playing Godzilla, I would suggest playing it. As for back to the future, not sure I’d but that much trust in that being real. They like to troll leakers with hot names….

    I have been happy with MB. It is a funny game, good for kids and has lots of targets and the rules make sense. Only one spot where the ball sometimes gets stuck (L ramp). It does not play as fast as the Sterns, but it does not get dull either. I play it as often as my newer Stern (GOTG) and my brother who is 67 prefers it over the Stern. My son, who is 13 prefers the Stern. I would think CC and MB will both have a more traditional feel than any new game. As a minimum, I think you could enjoy it for a good long while and should not have trouble off-loading a popular game like this. The artwork and sounds are excellent. Have not played CC enough to give an opinion on that.

    Your collection sort of has older games, great as they are. So, I would be tempted to check out one of the newer games. I just played Godzilla a couple weeks ago, side by side Mandalorian and had more fun on Godzilla. However, over the long haul, I would rather have Mando than Godzo (because I like the Star Wars theme). I don't think you can go wrong with any of these titles. The question is will you have enough time to play it when you already have a great collection.
