Quoted from Nemesis:
I would love to get a Monopoly, but I feel if it were a different theme it wouldn't command the price it demands. I think it pumps the price to a level thats almost cost prohibitive. They were what, $2800 brand new? $3k? It should be a $1400 pin but its over the 2's range... Oh well, one day... a future Monopoly owner. It plays like dog shit if it isnt tuned in properly, super drain monster, but so would any pin in routed purgatory hehe.
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.
