Quoted from screaminr:

I hope Liar's Dice is a proper video mode not just a bonus by picking a cup with dice under it linked to one character

You start out on a wager screen where you choose what you want to risk, then you get the game screen where you bet and call the computer player a liar. I wasn't ready for it and I kept waiting for the game to end the mode and throw the ball back into play, so I didn't start recording the video right away. I didn't know how to play, but I won.

Found a good explanation of how Liar's Dice works:

EDIT: ^^ Kevin beat me by 34 secs
Liars dice - using your pic as an example:

+ whenever you ‘Bid’, you must increase either the # of dice (left number) or the dice value or both. (So once someone bumps the dice value up to 6 you can only start raising the # of dice)

+ you have 5 dice, as shown, and your opponent has 5 dice. 10 total.

+ so looking at the pic, it looks like your next bid will be 1 (Six). Your opponent can then raise the bid to anything more than your bid of 1. Let’s say it comes back as 3 (Sixes) - you have 2 sixes in your hand, now it’s a guess whether you think your opponent has one or more sixes or had none.

+ If you think he has none, then click Liar. Both players show hand, calculate all the 6’s. If there’s 3 or more he wins, if less than 3 you win.

+ or you can raise the bid again and go for 4 (6’s) hoping he has at least 2 for a total of 4.

It’s really a fun game when 2 or more people are involved. Not so fun against a computer. Glad it only happens if you play as Davey Jones. Which begs the question, when do you play it? When you start your game? Or Beginning of ball 3 so you can risk your total score or even your ball? If the latter, then it could become interesting and fun.

It doesn't only happen as Davey Jones, he just gives you a Liar's Dice advantage. I think it was ball 2 I played it. It wasn't super easy to light, I was a ways into the game at that point.
As the mode plays now, you couldn't just risk all your score on Liar's Dice, it gives you like 4 options of what you want you can wager or to simply not play at all. Options like 2 tilt warnings, bonus X and such. I'll definitely have to figure out how to play the game for next time now that I know what to expect from the mode.

It's pretty much what I thought it would be, I didn't understand it in the movie and you shouldn't have to watch a video to understand it . shooting ships with a Canon would have been fun and so much better than this. it's better than nothing I suppose but what a let down

Its not a let down, its something different. If you want the same rehashed games over and over, find a stern.

#207 9 months ago

I think it's pretty cool but it would have been cool to hear a Davey Jones Sound sound a like while playing liars dice.

The choreography isn't complete yet, but it's functional so I wanted to get it out there. No chance on DJ though.

Thanks for showing it...I do like it!

#210 9 months ago

I hate being a Debbie downer, especially cause I love this game so much. But between getting a dozen map awards per game and the sound of Liars dice, i definitely Have my caution flag up on jumping in on a $10k machine. On the flip side; Keith and Joe are fantastic programmers and those types of things that turn me off can also be turned off in game, or at least toned down. At least I think map awards can be toned down so they’re harder to get?

Maybe let down was a bit harsh but with how good the programming and graphics are on this pin I just feel it would have been good to have something with a bit more atmosphere and excitement and easier to understand

Quoted from screaminr:

I think JJP's business strategy is to have the game satisfy casual players, but with a med to high level of difficulty of the rules, progression, finer points of the game for hardcore pinball fans.

I'd argue Keefer has outdone sheets in their respective roles as programmers and I look forward to everything he has to contribute to JJP.

Keith, I'm really liking the game. Thanks for all you do. I know you haven't put out update notes for the new code yet, but can you quickly comment on how to light Liar's Dice? Lloyd wanted me to try to get to it since it was new in the code, but I don't know exactly what I did to light it. I'm still trying to figure out the game rules overall, I love that there is so much to it.

Quoted from screaminr:

I don't doubt that this is just a initial iteration of Liar's Dice to get it out there like Keith said. I'm confident that it will be tweaked and added to going forward. I didn't even dislike it as it sits, I just didn't know how to play Liar's Dice and/or what to expect from the mode since it was the first time I had ever saw it. I was expecting there to be some kind of choice timeout, so I was always worried about the ball being kicked back into play and draining on me.

Hey guys,

We'll explain it all on the stream tomorrow. Make sure to join us on twitch at 3pm central time.

Liar's dice is qualified via the Pirate lanes. It is added to the list of potential pirate lane awards up after you have completed the Pirate lanes three times. Once you've completed the lanes with it selected as your award, hit the Pirate stand-up and Liar's dice is lit on right orbit.

It is purposefully deep in the rules to help avoid casual players accidentally starting it and being completely lost.

Davey Jones always has it as a potential Pirate lane award.

#217 9 months ago

Stayed up past midnight playing the latest code, noticing new sounds and music and won myself a game of Liar’s Dice. Super fun, can’t wait to stream more for you guys tomorrow in the JJPOTC double header!

Excellent! Makes liars dice more player selectable driven rather than random 5 times a game unlike some other video modes

#228 9 months ago

1) Can anyone explain the 4 rum bottle inserts over by the pop bumpers with the ‘?’ on them and how they are implemented in gameplay? I thnk they have something to do with the bumpers and increasing their level of the mystery award...but I’m not sure.

2) How does one score jackpots during tortuga multiball?

3) Also, is the ‘open sea’ shot for starting ‘break the curse’ wizard mode?

#229 9 months ago

Played the game again today and blew up the score with a few multiballs stacked.

Could use some tech advice from owners: The chest in my production model (unlike the proto I was babysitting) swings forward, mounted only on the left side. There’s a bit of friction keeping it from swinging, but nothing else. Is that correct? Repeated ball hits definitely push it around and presumably out of the proper ball lock launch path. I’m trying to troubleshoot ball lock issues reported but that I can’t reproduce. Wondering if this chest is sneaking out of place...

Second thing: Suggestions to make POTC harder via pf adjustments? I have a PAPA tourney coming up I’ll surely be asked to reduce ball times for. I can’t even figure out how to make the right outlane harder — I can remove the rings but that rubber on the posts bounces the ball in to the safety of the shooter lane a lot.

#231 9 months ago

Chest have a screw or something come loose from underneath ?

After watching the latest stream I think Liar's Dice could be good I just got hung up on it was a video mode it should be called a bonus mode and I was surprised it took 45 minutes to play on the upper deck and also I really loved how fire burned up the map at the end of the wizard mode

I got to put in some games on one this weekend, now I have to have it. The sound, light show, toys, and the first new widebody that has good flow I have played in years. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone judging to not until they play one.

Hmm looks like I clipped off the end by accident. I'll re-do it.

So I just had my best game. 1.9mil on code 0.96. Funny but I chose blackbeard because it is my brothers favorite character to play (because it is Swearengen from Deadwood) and just lit up the table.

Only strategy was to keep a ball in play lol. I never got a wizard mode though I tried.

What an awesome game!

Hi guys I’m new. Been reading for awhile but really wanted to join. I’ve been waiting to get a Pirates of the Caribbean Limited addition for some time and just learned that they removed the triple spinning disc. I’m so terribly disappointed since it was such a cool feature. I’m still leaning towards getting one but it is a factor in my decision. How does everybody that has a POTC now feel about it without the disc? What does the single spinning disk do now I can’t really find out does it have any function other than marginally affecting ball movement?

Also I watched Kevin play on several videos and it seems that the electronic map lands almost always on plunder opponents character and doesn’t seem all that random. Not sure they got the code right for that.

If you're watching our most recent stream, Rob and I turned plundering up to the maximum setting for fun. There are several adjustments you can set that change the plundering percentage.

The single disc has a ton of reaction on the ball...and I think it is more now than when it was when it was a three disc. I guess it is because the spinning disc moves slow (so it can grip the ball better / more coefficient of friction). I am completely happy with the game and I pretty much forgot about the three disc version until I saw this post lol.

On the plunder question, I have mine cranked up high too. It is so fun when playing against the kids. It totally adds to the overall experience of the game. Arghh!!!

It's just a bug that resulted from canceling a revenge instead of executing it. Basically the game kept help trying to revenge the whole time. It'll be dealt with.

#250 9 months ago

Has anybody heard anything about adding/expanding the lightshow and audio when firing at the ship and then sinking the ship?
The new movie clips help but I think just firing and hitting the ship should result in much better audio and greater light show and then sinking the ship should really be something "special"
