Game looks awesome -- really love the design, sounds and lighting are amazing. Understandable that it would be expensive to make.. but also that it just seems like it should be a 4.5 to 5.5k machine from buyers perspective.. the rules are cool but seems like there's one main objective that gets repeated 7 or 8 times if you are trying to beat it?

Quoted from jwilson:

Because it doesn't have a ramp? So if he put a $50 plastic ramp on it, it'd be worth $1,000 more?
Did you see the photo of the underside of this thing? That's Hobbit levels of wiring and materials.
3x single "smart" drops (2x coils per drop)
5x sling coils
2x scoops
2x controlled gates
1x pop bumper
1x spinner
1x auto launcher
3x flippers
That's just mechanical devices - never mind the 100+ RGB lamps. Stern couldn't even get 10 RGB lamps into their $15,000 game, but somehow because this game is missing a ramp, it's not worth $7K?
Just watch the streams on this game and you'll see why it's worth every penny. Not every game needs to have 32 stackable modes to be fun, sometimes it just needs to beat you over and over to keep you coming back. Every single person on that stream kept coming back for more.

Not saying a ramp adds $1k value, I'm just stating my opinion on the game value if produced after watching (really being mesmerized) by the dead flip videos, as asked by the op. It's a new take on an 80s style game -- we all agree it's awesome. To me, it's $4k awesome.. that's the rough price point I'd consider buying, new, used, whatever. I'm pretty sure production costs exceed that price point, and I'm pretty sure other people would pay more for this.. Prob enough people and $$ to make it viable.

At 6 to 7k, there's other games I'd go for in the newer style category.

I played and really liked can crusher (as an example), but at its heart it doesn't have enough to make it worth 5k to me, maybe $2k but obviously I'm not going to find one that cheap.

As awesome as ta looks, coukfnt justify it personally at 6k+ .. that's all I'm sayn .. not speaking to what it could cost to make it, and no disrespect to Scotts work on this, it's amazing! Had I a different budget and space for 10+ pins things might look different..

Quoted from jwilson:

If what you see when you look at TA is Can Crusher, then there's nothing I could say to change your mind.

Lol -- not at all, I'm just throwing the closest example of where an older style pin kind of concept was remade .. it's not a great example I'll give you that. As I stated slready though - ta blows me away, it's really a cool game even in white wood form. But if it was priced at a stern prem point, or a little under dialed in.. I can't compete with guys/gals that are looking at every new game release as a potential purchase though so maybe this is just out of my league. Hope to play one someday somewhere though

Quoted from Mocean:

Scott has talked about designing a P3 playfield module/game at some future point.

Hell yes -- that's awesome, I hope he pulls it off!

I just learned yesterday that he worked on bop2.0 -- what's Scott's day job and how did he get hooked up with Dutch pinball?

#799 2 years ago
Quoted from mgpasman:

His day job is "working at Pinball Life" according to Spooky's latest podcast

Oh man -- jealous! I figured he must have had a tech related job at some point though or he knew someone at Dutch?
