Quoted from SilverUnicorn:
You mean just like Medieval Madness? To me, that should be a 4K machine at most. I know people that bought them NIB on closeout for $2700. A 1969 Mach 1 was $2700 new. Not sure your point here
Monopoly is a bargain at the prices it sells for in my opinion. 3 ramps, great long shots, toys (waterworks flipper, electric company LED sign, etc). I like the interactive game board as well. There's a lot to be had I think. ANd it's built like a tank. Despite the fact that is is built well, it is easy to disassemble. I mean, 1 plug and 4 screws and the giant ramps can be removed. I find it very well thought out for the person who needs to clean the machine.
Compared to the 4K and up machines of today, I think it offers a lot of value, even at $2500
I do agree that it needs to be dialed in as you say. Maybe that is why so many people don't like it? The one I have now is sold, but another is on the way, which will be a keeper. Can't wait to get that one cleaned up and dialed in.
