I played Octoberfest at TPF and I found that to be better than any other new game at that show IMO.

I agree with the OP that at least in terms of reveal info (Wonka) Octoberfest prob a better bang for your buck for the price.

Wonka seems like a great shooter (awesome geometry) but very underwhelmed by the mechs/gimmicks. Wonka seems like a back to basics pin (like how Stern did with Iron Man - great game, but no crazy wow factor stuff). This is the first JJP game that to me, is MISSING "crazy wow factor" stuff. Every other JJP pin had cool shit, this game doesn't seem to have that. Again, underwhelmed.

Quoted from Waxx:

I enjoyed ACNC much more than Oktoberfest at TPF. I also find it odd how a game with diverters and magnets everywhere is "back to basics". I think people need to play them all and pick the one they enjoy the most but I find it fascinating people are trying to start a talking point that Wonka is missing mechs.

It's missing "custom" mechs things that haven't been done before. Everything in Wonka has been done to death, screen on star wars and even Pat's gobstopper (on Oktoberfest). Wonka has no drops no real bash toy no levitating monkey mech no pop up goblins no awesome hologram spinners or drones, no rocking upper playfield ("cool shit"). I'll play it eventually and decide. I'm not dissing Wonka, just calling it like I see it. magnets alone and some saucers is back to basics.
