Quoted from highdef:

You can definitely get your $$$ back.
I personally feel the game is over-budget or at least very close to it. If you disagree with me, at least make your counterpoint.
The exchange rate is hurting the bottom line for those doing business in Europe. The Euro took a beating over the last year, but it is still in DP's favor to get this game out ASAP and sell as many as possible before the Euro is in line with the US dollar.
China's economy has a bad cold right now and it's about to give the rest of the world the cooties in the very near future. Don't believe for a second that China can't implode. And let's not pretend there isn't a real estate/tech bubble in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, China, and elsewhere. This and the fact that 2016 is an election year in the US. Our job market may be doing well right now, but people aren't getting raises and Millennials aren't spending. Retirement costs are rising faster than Social Security benefits. I could go on. Wait until April when the corporate Q1 '16 earning reports start coming out. It is going to start getting rocky. This affects all of us. Any pin collector should think twice about their NIB purchases (and financial strength) moving forward. We're technically overdue for what lies ahead. And don't be surprised to see a surplus of pins and other "toys" for sale over the next few years as people prioritize their discretionary income (or deal with job losses). I'm willing to bet money with anyone that doubts what I'm stating here.
I think DP would love to charge more for this game, but do what you have to do. At least, keep these economic factors in mind. If you're going to pull the trigger, why spend more later?

This was the most depressing post that I've read in a long time!

Quoted from nwpinball:

Huge excitement about it at the Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show this past weekend, it won best pinball machine in the awards and the line was 5 to 25 people deep the entire time. Most talked about game at the show for sure, most played game, most buzz.

I was one of those waiting in line a half hour or more to play the game. Absolutely loved it! Was going to stand in line a third time but thought why? I'm getting one, it's just a matter of when I'm getting it!

Early achiever here. Paid in full to Dutch Pinball.

I emailed Melissa at Cointaker last night in hopes of grabbing one of the 40. Yes, I would've been in this game for over 20K! Why would even consider doing this? This game needs to be manufactured. If there was a chance to restart the build, I was willing to spend more money to make it happen. Obviously if no more were to be made, having one of 90 games would probably mean it's value would only increase! I might've been able to recover my original loss.

These games apparently sold very quickly! The market is there for this game. My only hope now is for the production to restart. I'd buy another if it meant getting two delivered to me.

For the record I'm not bitter with either Cointaker or Nitro. Hindsight being what it is, I just wish I would've went through a distributor instead of Dutch Pinball.

The demand for this game is there.

As an EA I quickly emailed Barry willing to spend another $12,500 to get a game.

My game build is 158. Still outside the 25 to 40 games built from parts. EA must been all over this proposal! Will I ever see my game? Who knows, but if the funds keep coming in, it is possible.

All I can do is to try and be positive.
