    What a month of exciting pinball news!

    Have the releases of Wonka, BK, or Ocktoberfest influenced your purchasing decisions to deposit (pay) first, play first, or neither. (ex: pricing, space, interest).

    Please discuss!

    I cannot bring myself to spend new pinball prices unless I am 100% sure I like the gameplay. I have to play it first, quite a bit actually.

    Play first leading so far!
    A lot of people seem to be in on these titles on the forum!

    Depends on the theme/title and reviews. I am more swayed by reviewers I trust to go NIB if it is theme I like/want. For the most part though it is only after playing.

    BKSOR and Oktoberfest do not intrest me at all. Wonka is the only one that intrest especially as I have never owned a JJP but for that kind of money I would like to play the game first and see some gameplay videos of it as well.

    I have no interest in Wonka. BKSOR looks interesting but I need to play it first. I have played Oktoberfest but I would need to put more time on it before deciding to buy it.

    Pay first.

    I'm not an NIB buyer but I can put myself in their shoes.

    What's the point of buying a NIB if you don't have it first?

    What's the risk in buying a NIB game sight unseen when if you don't like it, you only risk losing like 500 bucks?

    Don't see why you need to wait. Waiting is lame.

    It’s actually amazing what people are paying nowadays.

    Hard pass on all of them. B/W games for life.

    Coooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmme on deep-pocket Pinsiders!!! Get some $10K+ Wonka and sell me your hand-me-down games that I know how to service, fix, and repair! While some of you have more money than a cop has ink in their speeding ticket writing pen, I know SOME of you have to make some space for your new toy, and somewhere between $3K and $4K is burning all up in my pocket. Corvette, Shadow, Roadshow, or Champion Pub (I now...more than $4k, got it) please!!
