I'm assuming none of these can be found NIB at this point?
Quoted from Whysnow:
contact Chris at KingPin games. He may have had 1 left.
Outside of distributors having them, all are sold out.
Spooky says they 'may' make more in the future, but if we are honest, they have ACNC to make for the next 18 months, then likely Scott D #2, then ???
You get the idea...
Quoted from 27dnast:
It's polar opposite of your Pirates. Have you ever played any solid states from the early 80s?
The challenge is introduced by setting it up hard, at least that's the case for me. Fun game. If you're just flipping and banging the ball around, you'll likely grow bored quick. But if you challenge yourself to take advantage of the rules and nuances to pump up your score, you'll love it.
I have. I went to a Pinball Museum in CA and played an extensive collection of pins throughout the decades. Yea, this definitely seems like a challenge, but I appreciate the simplicity of the playfield while at the same time it offers some pretty much never seen before stuff.
Quoted from 27dnast:
You need to go buy one!
I DEF want to watch some videos. I heard the sound on this thing is just unbelievable and I'm a big sound guy.
I'd like to play it before as well.
The price is NOT bad and I think it would go nicely as a third pin next to my JJP POTC and AFMr.
I reached out to an ad and have not yet heard a response...which is surprising.
After watching some of a gamplay video on KingPin (it's over 2 hours...), I have an understanding of what "hard mode" means. You can bet I wouldn't be starting at hard, at first, but it may be fun to challenge myself after getting better.
Despite having naturally fast reflexes, I'm not nearly as savvy or seasoned as some of you who have owned and played your own pins for years or decades...yet.
I’m sure some of you know already, but this sort of thing is happening on Pirates as well.
And probably many other games..
Looks like NO TNAs are currently up on the Marketplace...
Does anyone use anything else other than ebay or CL?
Does anyone ever consider it being a concern when few games were made - such as this one - and you keep seeing them pop up for sale?
Probably not? I mean there could be a 1,000 reasons someone wants to sell something and I would assume it’s only because they want something else more.
Quoted from trilogybeer:
Nope, worrying about stuff like that is not worth anyone’s time in this short existence we all have . I buy games I like , that’s it .I don’t care what anyone else thinks of them , how many are for sale ,or what the market for them will be in the future .I really like this game and have no plans to ever sell it. I will admit that I am biased and this game was made to suit the type of game I enjoy to play and nailed it , but doesn’t change the fact that it is awesome. If you like this game and want to own one that is all that matters .
LOVE all that!
Yea. These aren’t investments. These are expensive toys that I want to play and blessed that I’m able to own.
Quoted from iloveplywood:
I have noted this as well and it kind of concerned me at first but I think there are a few reasons. The game is definitely unique and is not a journey pin, you do see most of what the pin offers in a very short period of time compared to some of the deeper games. Also, there was a bit of FOMO going on with this pin when the end of the run was announced which probably got a few people buying the machine that might have thought twice about it and passed if they didn't feel rushed to make a decision. Also, the game is hard and can be frustrating at times. This makes it a very tempting pin to move on from when the next new shiny is available.
Hell, I thought about selling mine to help fund a Pirates but then I realized that I've played the game every day since I've owned it. Objectively I think I like my BM66 more, I'm almost positive I'll own my BM66 well after I sell TNA but I simply play my TNA a lot more than my BM66 and I've owned it a month longer. I'm not any less thrilled to down reactors now than I was when I first got the game. I get just as angry when I have a bad run of games. In other words I'm definitely not bored. It's just intense pinball fun every game (maybe too intense sometimes).
I'll still probably sell my TNA at some point being that I only have a two pin collection and my whole plan was to rotate pins out somewhat fast over the next couple of years but I worry it will be a mistake. Also, even if I sell it and take the big NIB resale loss I'll feel like I got my money's worth out of it (about 1300 plays so far).
Anyway, I guess I'm trying to say don't worry about it It also will go great with a longer playing game like Pirates.
Quoted from iloveplywood:
Sorry about that, Fear of Missing Out. Sort of like the Pirates situation -- it suddenly became much more desirable when the run was limited.
Yea this would be my 3rd pin with Pirates and AFMr. I think it would round out a 3 pin nicely (though I want WOZ).
And I think it would be cool that each machine is from a different company.
I’m one of those people...but I may have something in the works..
Quoted from SDTMinSTL:
It just occurred to me that I have very few keepers-at-all-costs in my collection. Given the fact that the honeymoon period is way over with this game, and in a get together the other night at my house, it was the game that was played the most, it is now in the "untouchable" camp. All smiles with every press of the start button.
How many games happen to be in your "untouchable" camp?
