    I have room for one have t played either what would you guys buy?

    #2 45 days ago

    i love both but i would go with dialed in le. it is just the cooler game and really fun.

    #3 45 days ago

    Had DILE and Maiden Pro.

    Dialed In is packed with shots and toys. Maiden is barren by comparison.

    But for me, Maiden is 10x as fun. I miss it, big time.

    #4 45 days ago

    I love my Dialed In but to be fair to Iron Maiden I’ve just played in the wild and at friends house.
    You can’t lose with DI,I still play it almost everyday after a year and a half

    Iron Maiden super fun game amazing layout and great rules which gives you lots of strategies and coming back for more.

    IMDN 7 days of the week.

    Dialed in has that loaded out classic late 90's Bally/Williams feel and is super fun, Iron Maiden is the more modern Stern which is way different. I'd say play both and pick, they are night and day different. For me, Dialed In has been a long term keeper and guests love it. Maiden is a great game, just a different type of game and guests aren't as drawn to it.

    I would pick Maiden: Very similar layout to TZ but in a non-wide body playfield format. Even if your not a fan of the music the music grows on you anyways.

    DI: I personally can not get past the theme with the cell phone and I hate the title. It is not a bad game but the 'Dialed In' title and the cell phone on the playfield kills it for me.

    That’s such a deep accessment of DIALED In WOW

    #11 45 days ago

    Dialed In for me.

    Why? I enjoy the simplicity and complexity of the rules. I dig the shots, which feel smooth and are like butter when made. Get past the theme and you’ll be fine!

    #12 45 days ago

    Had/have both and di is a excellent pin and one my favorites ever even after years of ownership. Maiden was pretty fun but didn't last to long for me. Go put some time in on both and decide for yourself. You have many haters on di bc of the original theme but that's part of y i love it.

    #13 45 days ago

    Iron Maiden hands down will not become so repetitive in nature and easier to maintain. Plus holds value much better than DI. Pinball browser allows changing of any music if Maiden gets on your nerves. The great table layout is way more kinetic in its shots and makes up for music.

    DI is okay, but becomes rinse repeat one too many times. Quite a simple game, very linear in game play and the left side loses the ball, with a clunky Bob orbit. Playing at my friends, we move onto Maiden over DI all the time. Also (and this is big), it is a maintence challenge much of the time, from what my friends tell me. The hood is up as much as the glass is on. Lol

    #14 45 days ago

    I've never been a fan of Iron Maiden's music and I really don't like the cell phone theme but with that said, they are both really fun games with interesting layouts. I'd have to give Dialed In a slight edge however for its humor and fun features.

    Huh.. thousands of plays on my dile and its been relatively maintenance free.... had the pro maiden so not many adjustments but the premium /le is another story.

    #16 45 days ago

    I have owned both and DI was not a keeper IMHO.. theme, sound package and sim card shot killed it for me. I have Maiden LE and I love the game! The layout is awesome, rules are great and the sound package kicks ass.

    #17 45 days ago

    If you can stomach the music, Iron Maiden is prob one of the best tables released recently. I might revisit that and put some time to create a good music mix.

    #18 45 days ago

    Both are excellent games -- can't go wrong with either one. However, they are very different kinds of games. Play both, and get the one you think you will enjoy in a home environment more. If there is one on location that you can play when you want, get the other one.

    #19 45 days ago

    I played both and don't own either. Really Like DI. Not a fan of IM, but the layout and shots are great!

    I suggest you play both - very different games

    Selfie and emjoi mode or METAL up yer ASS you choose.

    The hood is up as much as the glass is on. Bullshit!

    #24 45 days ago

    I own a DI and it is a great game.
    On the other hand IM is super, too and I try to get this machine.
    Why not buying first a DI, play it for a while and sell it to buy a IM?

    I have an LE and it plays flawlessly! The only time I have lifted the hood was to add a couple mods.

    dialed in. maiden is a great game too, I would recommend both for a bigger collection. but just one id choose jjp all day.

    No contest. Spent extensive time with both and Iron Maiden Prem has the staying power.

    Dialed In doesn't have complex rules. It's one of the most straightforward recent pins out there.

    #30 45 days ago

    Maiden is fantastic. DI annoys me. Lame theme, lame modes. Layout is not bad, but cant save it IMO

    #31 45 days ago

    I own both and love the play of both, but If I could only keep one, it would be IMDN LE.

    #32 45 days ago

    wrong quote..gonna try again

    id be very interested if you can put a music mix with electronic music or urban). love the music on deadpool & tron.
    as of now on my iron maiden, i turn the music way down and the sounds and speech way up! helps a lil for me anyhow..
    the game is phenominal to play IMO.

    #35 45 days ago

    If you already have a Stern, definitely Dialed In. That’s assuming you aren’t a huge fan of Iron Maiden or their music!

    #36 45 days ago

    Clint12 Play both of them and you'll know which one YOU like the best, that's all that matters
    You can't go wrong with either of them.

    But play them more than once or ideally over a period of time. I was enamored with Dialed In for about a month, then it got stale very quickly. Hasn't happened with Maiden Pro or Premium yet after almost a year.

    Dude you are on a crusade against Dialed In or JJP pins .
    Wow!

    Quoted from romulusx:

    Wow!

    Yeah, that's why we've brought literally every JJP pin released in so far for the route I help with and still have a WoZ and jjPotC for that route. Hobbit and Dialed In just didn't last long.

    Just like with Stern or Spooky or whoever, when they do things well, I will praise, but if they miss the mark, I'm not going to candy-coat it. I don't have a single pin collection where I have to reinforce that I made the right choice so I feel okay with keeping it. I play them all, I maintain them all, I watch the earnings for all of them on the route I help with. It gives me plenty of perspective.

    #40 45 days ago

    IM by miles and miles.

    #41 44 days ago

    Owned DI for a few months but it was missing something, and the SIM card shot was pretty clunky so I sold it. I still own IMDpro and think it’s a great challenging pin. DI has some really easy shots( except SIM card) so that’s something to think about when choosing. Would you rather have a more in your face challenge(IMD)or a easy relaxing game(DI). Both games are mode driven and that’s a plus for me. I think I have IMD still just so I can hit the very challenging ramps and shoot loops.

    Sorry I just got the impressions from all your other postings.
    I wasn’t trying to Wonka your post

    #43 44 days ago

    Have both....DI by far.

    #44 44 days ago

    Gonna do both thanks

    Good choice

    #46 44 days ago

    Wasn't a fan of DI theme when I first saw it. Played it, loved it immediately.

    Big IM fan and was excited for the pin, played it, hated it.

    #47 44 days ago
    Quoted from Clint12:

    I was going to say DI is my preference but Maiden is very good as well.

    #48 44 days ago

    I own both and love both. My opinion on which you should get would depend on what other games you have. I could see DI or IM shining more in different collections.

    #49 44 days ago

    I have both IMDN and DI on my list. Was looking at NIB IMDN vs used DILE. Buying a new IMDN from Mr. Zach at flip n out pinball. Chose that over the DI at this time mainly because I feel used DI prices are inflated right now. People want too much for their used ones.

    #50 44 days ago

    I'm unsure how people can compare the two and say "dialed in has a lame theme" with a straight face. Both are great games, but could they have picked a shittier band than iron maiden for a pinball theme?
