I think it would be a mistake to trade Tron for Stranger Things. I think I can be objective because I own STH, and while I don’t own Tron I’ve played it a lot. You had the dream team on Tron: Borg and Sheats. While I think STH and Guardians are good, Tron just shoots better. I’m not real familiar with Tron’s rules, but I’ve always enjoyed playing it.

I sold Guardians after 6 months because it started to feel repetitive, and the Rocket shot pissed me off. I’m not getting that same feeling from STH, probably because it has a lot more modes, and I connect to the theme more. But objectively I’d have to say GOTG and STH are equals, just pick the one that you connect to more.

After putting a new TWD next to my MET, I’m seriously thinking of looking for a Tron so that I have the Borg/Sheats trifecta. Both games are like crack to me. I never feel like I’m “grinding it out” with either of them.

IMHO the Pro version of STH is great. Same layout, 99% same rules, and with the UV kit you’ll never miss the projector (the LCD shows the same videos). TK lock is freaking amazing, but not worth the difference. Again, all in my opinion. Which is what you asked for.

The STH vs. GOTG decision is all about mood, not theme. To me they are both great themes, but I like darker pins like BSD. My favorite color is brown or dried blood red (I love TWD for that reason alone). Layout-wise I think GOTG and STH are equals, but I love the left orbit that feeds the right ramp on STH, and the skill it takes to manage the drop target bank. It’s like a friendlier version of the Rocket shot.

One thing that GOTG does better than STH is the first mini-wizard. Cherry Bomb is the most fun you can have in pinball, next to a 6-ball multiball in Aerosmith (very similar). Your reward for finishing 4 modes in STH is the most laid-back multiball ever. It’s not for everyone.

BUT. STH has like 3X more modes than GOTG. It will probably last longer for me, for that reason alone. That, and burning the evil out of Will. Burning Will never gets old.
