Have you played Houdini?
I've played it a lot at this point.
The only reason I keep playing is to try and take down the GC. The game looks good, but that's about all I like about it.
The play before you buy mantra is always awesome advice, but I think it's especially important here. Houdini is just another new game at this point to me. I think it's a good first effort from the company, but I don't think it's fun to play.
I think MMR is the far superior game.
I tend to be in the wait and see how the game progresses camp before making the decision on Houdini. I've thrown down on too many games in the hype period only to be left disappointed.
Love the theme, love the looks and price is not hateful.
I love both games and it's close. MM is a charming and fun game. It's also been around for a long time. For me, Houdini was more appealing. Houdini is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. But for me, it was a complete, modern machine with a lot of value for the money. Art is stunning. I love the theme. Rules are clever and deep. You'll find it more challenging than MM.
MMR is pure greatness. The game has it all including quirky humor, something that is missing on most modern pins.
