Quoted from T7:
I find it really ridiculous that people would balk at $300 for a new set of rules for a game. The rules make all the difference in pinball - they are literally half of what makes a game fun to play. And if you consider what these games cost, let alone what parts/mods prices are, $300 would be an absolute bargain basement price.
Having 2 different sets of rules is almost like having 2 different games, if the differences are significant.
Compare this hypothetical upgrade to any of these...
- Invisiglass $300
- Topper $200
- Mike D Hologram LCD - $450
- LED OCD + LEDs - $300
- Toy car with LED headlights $50
All of the above added to a single game would NOT enhance the game play as much as a well done new ruleset. It wouldn't even be close. I think Creatures rules are great as-is, but an alternative version with Wizard modes would be absolutely awesome if done right. You would definitely want the ability to easily choose original vs new ruleset though.
I'd be surprised if ultimately at least 1000 BoP 2.0 kits aren't sold in the end. I would guess 200-250 have gone out by now. Maybe more. So there's definitely a market. It's just more suited to hobbyists who are prepared to sink the necessary time into it, rather than companies like DP or others.
