So I have waited almost 2 years for my MMRLE black and it is finally here ready to ship. However now instead of $8000 Canadian it will cost me $11,600 Canadian. For the same price I can pick up a KISS Pro and a TWD pro. Or I can just get a KISS pro and save the other $5000 for something later. Or I can save my $$ and wait for the next game.

I like a challenging game with a deep rule set. MET and ST are my two favorites right now. Everytime I play MM I have a long game and it doesn't seem to have much variety. For the money I just don't know it is worth it for me. What would you do and why?

If I have to sell my MMRLE i have a feeling I will need to sell for a big loss but a pro not so much. Comments?

Have you considered a TWD Premium instead?
I don't know much about KISS, except that code isn't proven yet so it's still a bit of a gamble at the moment.

Don't get kiss. No good right now. Needs code to be finished.

I love TWD but the premiums are still so much $$... I played Kiss a lot at the Chicago show and had so much fun but i did not play enough to get deep into the code... It still kinda sucks then? Damn. What to do?

I'd go TWD Premium now, and consider KISS down the road once the code is done.

TWD Pro and don't look back. You like the game already, and they finally did something great with the code. Plus you enjoy a challenging game, and TWD is always trying to take the ball back.

Walker Bombs... A very interesting concept only available in the Prem / LE games. But they can be used as a bit of a crutch. And again, if you like the challenge of a tougher game, you won't need them.

As of now KISS isn't ready for prime time. So wait a bit to see if they can do something good with it.

So that means 1 Pro and save the rest until another game breaks through. I'd have suggested MET, but you have that covered

to answer your original question. if you're going to do one or the other I would rather have the Walking Dead Pro kiss Pro than MMR le.....also I think kiss code will arrive at some point.

We love our KISS Pro. The secret, tilt it a little high in the back. The faster the better. We had it set to run a little slow, and when we jacked it up the speed made all the difference.

MMR all the way. It's one of the most collective pins in history for good reason.

You'll be able to get Kiss and TWD later on down the line if you really want it.

Agreed. Don't get kiss now. Get TWD Pro or Prem, GOT Prem, ot IMVE.

Two pinnies for one? Take it. TWD will go down in history as one of the best.. And Kiss aint bad either.

Only 5 votes for number 3 but that is the way I am leaning right now. I owned TWD pro before but got rid of it because I wanted a premium or LE. Loved the game but can always get an HUO later. Kiss code sounds nasty and for me that won't fly. With GB potentially coming I may just hold tight for now. Since they will make MMR forever I know if I want to sell that those prices will not go anywhere but down.

Thanks to all that voted. This really was a tough decision after waiting so long for MMRLE... However decided to refund my deposit and get out. Not looking back... Too many new games to consider now and over the next year. MMRLE out for me... If anyone wants one for $11,600 Canadian, call Playdium

Anything but KISS. Annoying and pretty boring game unless you absolutely love their music

#16 3 years ago

I am out in Kiss also after reading about the code. Waiting for GB release by spring hopefully. Also on the look for TWD...

I think the walker bombs are awesome but they are not easy to acquire and the pro is a slightly easier pin and the premium is actually tougher due to the dangerous bicycle girl shot , extra magnet, Woodbury drop target and crossbow . I believe the walker bomb helps even it out some vs the pro

I own a Kiss pro now, code isn't there yet. TWD pro and wait.

Ghostbusters may end up being a home run, or you could pull the trigger on a proven music pin like Met. The layout and art on Kiss are great, but the code will make or break it in the long run.

Edit: Probably don't want to buy Met as you already own it
