I preordered right after playing it at the Chicago Expo through flipnout1 , and I am still in. I don’t have any JJP games yet in my collection, and I still can’t wait for my JJPOTCLE despite the rings being turned into the typical single disc mech. I am kinda in the collector mode of thinking this is Eric’s first game, so why not (after telling Jack that I can’t believe he redid a theme) . Yeah it has 2 less features to it , but if the designer says it is more reliable and he is good with it, I am still in. Keith and Joe are amazing on the software side too, so I know it is going to be a fun game in the lineup! Actually whomever wants to be invited to the Tortuga party in the Louisville area , let me know.

Lastly, it is pirates. Arghhhh!!!!!!!

I am going from memory on playing JJPOTC in March at LAX, but I thought the compass was the direction of the most rewarding shot (doesn't say exactly what to hit). With the star map and the compass, you could get a good idea of what exactly to aim for maybe? For example if the "P" lane was the most reward, the compass would just point to the left...so you wouldn't know what to exactly hit. But, using the direction and the hint in the stars, you can figure out it is the "P" lane.

Just guessing though

Quoted from KingBW:

At the beginning of the game it favors tilting left. The more you get into the game and depending on the mode it will rock more. Eric told me back in April that there is a mechanical adjust on the linkage to favor the angle more in one direction or the other, depending on owner preference. So the tournament type players can favor the average roll angle to the right if they so choose to in order to make the game play up there harder.

I thought he said awhile ago that the ship sways less when you put "Wind in the sails" aka shooting the spinners more on the ship, the less it sways back and forth. I may be mistaken though.

Quoted from Crile1:

Can't wait until lots more units ship so that an Owner's thread will be created and this thread can finally die. The last 10 or so posts sound like a death-rattle.

I am completely fine with everyone having their own opinions, but also it does seem that this thread is steering a little off course too. I guess for some, the compass pointing to their heart's desire is not pointing to this pin.

There is already a thread started, which I plan to upload some photos of when it arrives:

I got my shipment notification from flipnout1 for JJPOTCLE yesterday and it is perfect timing as we just got back from Disneyworld!
I am guessing sometime next week is when it will finally arrive and I will have time to set it up.

So my checklist:

Shipping Notification - done
Get Jack Sparrow hat for the unboxing - done
Escalara for moving to the basement - done
ltg mug - have, but need to find from last year's Expo - todo
Make some room for the new home for awesome pin - todo

yes please!
Really needed improvement for OPs!
would love to be able to set happy hour pricing on games

I am definitely not an operator..but this is a very interesting idea. I love the idea off happy hour prices!

Quoted from Psw757:

Too many pirate drinks perhaps?

Lol pretty much! I didn't take an unboxing video, but took a lot of pics which I will upload in the club thread shortly. I can say that this game is completely amazing and plays pretty different (better) than the demo games that were out there, which I think the software updates are the reason and it seems way smoother. The circular map graphic looks better too (not as red)?

Yeah, not trying to brag or anything as well, but I have had mine setup for a week in my house and have been playing the heck out of it when I get a chance. I can't wait for others to get there's!
