My nephew came to visit a while back and he really liked playing my TMNT and Getaway. I had considered getting him some tables for "the pinball arcade" but with Christmas coming up I also thought about going a little more deluxe and getting him a zizzle.
Now I'm aware that Zizzles are the Go-Bots of pins but he is just a kid, and not my kid. Is the pirates game going to keep him entertained for a while or are they just a small step up from the plastic table top pins? I watched a youtube video of one and while its obviously too basic for me, he isn't exactly worried about getting through wizard mode on a game.
I would probably prefer to get him the Marvel Zizzle, but there's a pirates one about 2 hours away for $295 which is way past the top end of the budget I spend on my nieces and nephews but he's a good kid and this would be a one time thing. I figured if I got it now I could clean it up, maybe make it prettier, add some pirates toys and stuff like that. If its not worth it I'll get him one of those TMNT or marvel table top pins for $50.
