I would get a Houdini with a second pin or hold extra cash. I am just under 200 plays and have yet to finish all of the modes in one game let alone all of the films and mini tasks. Houdini is plenty deep for a home game.
If Houdini is a low run (and is or will be out of production soon) it would be an easy flip out later for a POTC.
I had planned on getting pirates but waiting so see how it all pans out now.
I played the proto JJP at a show over the summer a hand full of times and watches another half dozen players (some seasoned some not).The consensus was Houdini played better even with the tight shots. I will say it was a proto with the three discs and the working trunk but there seemed to be a lot of SDTM drains. While I played I never had an out lane drain.
Fan of both but Houdini would be my choice.

Quoted from Waxx:

hooked I was at Expo last year and every single person I spoke to said the opposite. I don’t know anyone who said they preferred Houdini. Pirates because I would buy it and I wouldn’t own a Houdini.

Just as a reference the four player game we played combined we had at least 60 years of collecting pins ...the youngest/ newest collector we played with has only been in pinball 9 years and is currently an operator. Looks wise we all loved POTC and I know it was early on code wise.
But like others have said play them side by side and see which one floats or sinks your boat .
