    Opinions of owners of TWD and GOT. If you were going to buy a NIB one which would you choose and why.

    #2 9 months ago

    I'd buy the one I like the most.

    They are both pure awesomeness, but I gotta go with TWD. Get both if you can someday but get TWD first.

    Pro vs pro = GOT
    PREM vs PREM = TWD

    TWD easy. I think it's one of Stern's best games ever.

    GOT. And I disagree with Eskaybee about the premium - I think half the game is missing with the pro. Both versions of GOT are awesome, though. But with TWD, I think only the premium would be worth your cash.

    It's a tough call. Both great pins. GOT has pretty cool rules. But you really need to scratch at them for a while to get the strategy down. Once you understand them, it can really shine. TWD is just different. The layout, and (on the pro) sweeping ramps that if you miss, you're hamburger. I've heard the tilt warning sound on TWD more than any other game. You are always fighting the game. And the rules fit this nasty fight very well.

    Both are quite unique, but I'll lean just a bit towards TWD.

    TWD for sure - I want to purchase one so much. I've played both versions of GOT, it's ok, that's about it. GOT Pro is super smooth, I'll give it that. I really hate the art on the GOT playfield.

    Twd by a fair amount especially if talking about the pro.

    I enjoy it's gameplay, visual appeal, and audio more. GoT leaves me sort of cold - probably in part due to its somewhat confusing ruleset. I strongly dislike the dots on GOT also.

    twd, got and GB are the best sterns made in a while. they earn well to. as far as which to buy between got and TWD, if its for your house its up to you. both are great choices. cant go wrong with either IMO.

    TWDLE or premium by light years! The rules are amazing and the gameplay is brutal! But if you don't mind a long player then GOT (which I'm not a fan of in the home environment) is for you. But for me it's seriously a non contest with TWDLE/Prem winning 100/100 times

    TWD Pro for me.
    But TWD is more difficult than GoT: depends who plays the game in your house (TWD can be frustrating!).

    #26 9 months ago

    TWD all day

    #27 9 months ago

    Wow...what a tough call.

    Do you have a preference for Borg or Ritchie games?

    Which theme do you prefer?

    Both are excellent games. TWD will probably go into the archives soon, so I'd pick up one while you can. GoT will be available for a while yet. Premium all the way on both of them
