Quoted from yancy:
Crap like this makes me embarrassed to be a collector of anything. I know exactly what number all my games are: one. I have one. That’s all that matters. Couldn’t care less how many other people have one, or what number is stamped on mine, or theirs. If you’re buying something because exclusivity makes you feel special, grow up. Just play your insanely expensive luxury toy that we’re all fortunate to own, and sleep well at night. If unique numbers give you a boner, look at the serial number.
Right! There's an old saying in the antique business - anything made to be a collectable will never be. WOZRRLE or ECLE are great games and very enjoyable to play. I own one and love it! Each have their own unique characteristics in terms of appearance and should be enjoyed as such. But don't mistake any of that as being rare and collectable. They aren't either. How many different versions of Hobbit or WOZ already exist? And how many more might yet be made? They are not truly rare or collectable on that basis. They're just pinball machines meant to be played and enjoyed. Special collector's edition numbers are irrelevant and more self serving to he manufacturer than anything else as a means of hyping up sales. No criticism of JJP intended by any of that. He is trying to sell his merchandise and some degree of hype is always expected, and to an extent is a good thing. Just don't start believing the hype!
