    Quoted from Hollywoodbone:

    Ha ha I’m not that good!
    But I do like tough pins. So I take it for what it is. But at the same time my mom came over last night and was one mode away from munstermadness her second game and never plays! But she did love the Pin!

    That's great when family can play together. Hope you got some good photo for memories.

    Quoted from Hollywoodbone:

    Sooooo......the game is absolutely beautiful looking. No denying that. From layout of art to the quality of the characters. Sterns art quality is becomeing top notch on there cabs. Super glossy and rich colors.
    The lay out is very nice. The flow is smooth. The orbits are fast. The ramps are balls out amazing. Both are way faster then expected. The left is steeper then expected but requires very little effort to get up. Even with a back hand if you get it just to the top it will work it’s way around. Love seeing that. Again I can’t stress enough how fast and smooth these ramps are!!! Another shot I Love is going into the pops. Such a tight little area but the ball goes right in. Just to the left the Kitty shot is great. Tough little shot!
    It’s just a super fast pin. Wasn’t expecting it! My only complaint about layout is it feels like there is very little to shoot at. But that’s wrong ha ha. I counted 11 shots/openings on Munsters and the same on Guardians but for some reason it feels there is more to shoot at on Guardians.......?
    Munsters is also no slouch. It’s not the wide open easy shooter you would think it is. It can be tricky getting your shots down. But man when you do it’s combos heaven and with that speed if you get it rolling good youll have a ball get by you with out even knowing it happened.
    The light show is killer. Great stuff even though it is by far the darkest damn stern ever. Not just in the middle. Every one that’s played it at my House didn’t hardly notice spot pop up it’s so dark! But again the light show its self is great.
    The zap button is a cool edition. But to utilize it you have to be quick and hit it often. I know like it but I know some won’t!
    Now the code......! I just don’t know how I feel. I enjoy the risk reward and I like having the progressing of of shoots being worth more in a mode the more you hit. That’s nice. Plus I love that the shots are all color coded for easy understanding of that progression. Spot is probably my favorite mode. It actually feels like a mode. And fun to run through. My chief complaint is like most. Just too easy to run through the modes.Even with it being more about points it’s disappointing to see most of the game so quickly. Maybe make it so I have to at least complete the modes rather than just start them. Again I know it’s more about points and how you do in the modes but just personal preference.
    I got to level 2 Munster madness the third day owning it. I personally couldn’t identify really any difference from level one game play to level 2. That being said it’s still a fun pin. But something is missing in that code. It’s missing the mystery of what’s to come as you progress through the game. Mode or points I want to see some thing different the longer I play. I want to see or at least feel a change in call outs or something. The game has a lot of unique things about it that really separate it! So I’m super excited to see what’s to come with it.

    Great to see an honest review Hollywoodbone, everything about the Munsters look sic (Awesome)

    you say that it feels like less to shoot at as compaired to gotg.
    I have always felt the missing piece was that Lily was not a 4 bank drop.

    Code on the other hand - Argggggg
    I too really hope this changes

    Thanks for the write up

    I do think it would have been good to have a four bank for that reason because you hit Lilly so often inadvertently you don’t pay much attention to her. She does play a good part into scoring but again you almost never need to concentrate on her. I will say both mono targets do not bother me as bad I I thought they would.

    Quoted from Spiderpin:

    Always!
    Can’t wait for you to get your hands on one. Not a bad Pin by any means just needs a little more.
    What are some of your favorite pins? Want something to compare it to

    #3804 43 days ago

    That's the problem with buying a new Stern right at release. The code. I bought a Kiss Pro at release. I liked the layout and the way it shoots and the light show but the code just wasn't doing it for me. I waited it out and three years later i couldn't be happier now that the code matches the game play. Kevin

    I agree. Very expected

    #3806 43 days ago

    Congrats Greg. Nothing like your first NIB game! Enjoy!

    Your mini review matches my thoughts. Be very interested to hear what you think about game play depth/fun after a month or so.

    #3807 43 days ago

    Bone - I love your honestly in your review. Highlighting the great but not shying away from a core issue = code. Don't change!

    Enjoy the game. Like TWD, code can be updated significantly.

    #3808 43 days ago
    Quoted from Hollywoodbone:

    I agree. Very expected

    But what did you think of your distributor? Seems like you couldn't get him out of your house! lol You would have thought he would have at least dusted off that box knowing you have germ issues. Hard to find good help some days...

    #3809 43 days ago

    This was meant to be a simple fun game like an older game but there does need to be a little more meat on the bone. The biggest thing that worries me is Dwight says its done except for some bug fixes. I hope that Stern makes him add more to the code because this game deserves it.

    Super disappointed! I expected a clean box and in and out service for such a reputable dealer!!!!!
    All in all I guess I give him an A

    An "A"!!!! Holly wow Batman that's a Bone first he must be Spectacular! Glad he was my Munsters dealer (Pin pusher) and future purchase seller. As a side note your daughter has some real talent. Might give Franchi a run for his money some day congrats.

    I brought the Kiss Le, but the code took way too long for me to wait.
    Sold it

    Seems like a lot of people have that opinion. Anyone think it is because the shots are closer to flippers overall in GOTG than in the Munsters? Scoop on the right, Yandu on the left. The orb shot is closer than Grandpa and you have to knock the standup down.

    Quoted from Hollywoodbone:

    Yeah, he could have at least gotten an extra empty box for your daughter.

    (He has a cool van though and didn’t just dump the game in your driveway)

    Quoted from kms_pinball:

    It’s really only an issue if you must have an LE. If not, you should have at least a couple years to decide.

    Slightly off topic question. SDTM...is that still available as an audio only podcast? Seems like my podcast player isn't picking up any new shows.

    Yes it’s still available but I have to upload the last handful still. It’s on the list, our apologies for the delay.

    #3818 42 days ago

    Thanks Zach, no need to apologize. What's the best place for the RSS audio only?

    Quoted from mbwalker:

    He should apologize! I personally would email Greg and let him know Zach is slacking on the job and Hope he doesn't get fired! Jhhhsh, open a new pinball distributorship and the slacking begins!! lol

    Oh it was Zach trust me. I pulled up beside them and he was grinning ear to ear happy as a pig in shit. I guess he thought that he wouldn't get caught if he left the state. Looks like that plan backfired on him!

    You just have to have a really open mind ha ha. I just don’t know how to take it. Such an odd ball pin. I can say it keeps me coming back though. I’ll give a good update in the next week or so after I load up on some game play,

    I dont know much about it since i don't have many games on it but it was fun as hell, i do know that much!

    #3830 41 days ago

    Hey Zach & Greg - sorry for interrupting the Munsters discussions - just wanted to say THANKS for your SW endorsement on one of your (recent?) past episodes. I picked up a Premium recently (partially based on your hearty recommendations) and I'm having a blast playing it! You guys need to update your original review of the game.

    Now back to Munsters talk ...

    No problem. We love that game and it doesn’t get the love it deserves. Glad you’re enjoying it! Good call going prem/le.

    The one thing holding me back on a SW Prem is that I hear the Death Star fork shot can be “inconsistent” due to the design. Is there a way to adjust it?

    SW (premium, LE) is absolutely great. Love it personally. A few had issues with the fork but not to difficult to adjust like most things pinball.

    I got lucky I suppose. Mine was so good that it’s easily one of my favorite shots in pinball. So much adrenaline

    #3838 40 days ago

    Looks good Greg! Munsters is one of the best looking pinball machines ever made.

    #3839 39 days ago

    I bought all of the Mods based on you name dropping during the unboxing video.

    Thank you both very much.
    I value your guys options and dig the game room.

    I think they are doing more of a "impressions" video on new pins rather than a review, since Zach now sells them fancy stern machines. At least that was my understanding but I could be wrong.
