Quoted from megalo17:
I wish I could get them all... Been playing CBW on pinball arcade. It seems pretty cool with lots of game play. An unorthodox playing field. LW3 is the cheapest of the three. I've heard about the long delay of the steamboat with MAV. I'm sure I'd be happy with any of them! Thanks for the input!
The display for maverick is its Achilles heel. Switching to a smartdmd is about 250 so cheaper, but still steep for what a maverick is worth.
I have owned all three and played them all a lot. CBW is the keeper in my collection because of its uniqueness, but Maverick is my favorite to play out of the three. The issue with Maverick long-term for me has been keeping the paddle wheel working consistently, so it probably won't be in my game room as long as CBW. LW3 was fun, but not a game i would play very often, some of it regarding LW3 depends on what other games are in someone's collection.
