We are all different, but as of now, i really enjoy The hobbit, had even more plays on the DI after i filmed, but enden up playin The hobbit anyway, whitch ones do you like and prefere, and why?

(try playing JJP for many hours, and skip to a newer stern, such a difference)

#2 2 years ago

Have yet to play one I would buy but I need to play Dialed In more before righting it off. Woz and Hobbit are too slow and floaty for me to enjoy. Pirates looks cool.

#3 2 years ago

WOZ (because I own it)
Dialed In (played it several times on location, loved it)
Pirates (never played it)

Hobbit (turd fest, I bought it NIB, gets so old so fast, nothing but pop up monsters and multi ball fest. very few satisfying shots, and the lack of interaction between Smaug and the pin is beyond disappointing)

I also think pirates looks awesome, hope production will start soon

I wish people who think this of woz could have played my woz. Don't own it anymore, and I do miss it; but man, while it wasn't a flow fest it was tough and brutal. The code and rules are spectacular, with satisfying shots and jackpots. it's a good rush of a game.

My votes:
JJPOTC
WOZ
DI
TH

Dialed In too long and linear for my liking but man it's still a great game.

I enjoying my Dialed In and I’m getting a nice huo hobbit tomorrow!

Yeah, while WOZ may be slow and floaty if set up poorly, mine at home has strong flippers and a steep pitch. The ball can fly, and almost every shot is dangerous.

Just bought a DI as well. I’m really enjoying it but need more time on it. Definitely a very different pin than WOZ, but I love contrast. The modes on DI feel really great. I have no idea if I’m saving the city or destroying it, but whatever I’m doing, I’m having a blast.

I just traded my woz away. It's a great game, but very hard to progress and understand what's going on and it was not played much when I had friends over. I vote di and I guess I'm in the minority, but I like the hobbit a lot and anxiously await new code.

Thank god for Jack. He has made everyone step up their game. Stern is totally stepping it up, Spooky is stepping up. Jack has shown the world that people will pay for quality. Im glad he made. it.

DI.
Played a lot of WOZ and don't care for it. Played not a lot of Hobbit and don't care for it.

#16 2 years ago

Hands down. DI is the best !

Shocked to see WOZ is not #1

Did you pay for your DI with the 1000's of dollars you cheated Susi out of?

Lol, another thread going down the shitter. Man, tough times on Pinside...

#22 2 years ago

1.Hobbit 2.POTC 3.W0Z 4.DI Played WOZ and think it’s a good game not lightning fast but fun. DI was not fun to play and the theme makes it a bit hard to want to own. Love hobbit as it’s a great adventure and lots to do when you actually know how to play it. Potcjj is a fun game and wouldn’t mind owning it in the future. My top 3 are all close and could change in the future.

Really Tracy? Just go away....

#26 2 years ago

I have to wait until I get Pirates. I have owned the hobbit so as of right now I would have to say:

WOZ
DI
Hobbit

Pirates will replace the number 1 or 2 spot I'm sure.

I'm with you on the Hobbit,but I've only played about 30 games on it.If I saw a Huo locally,I'd be very tempted to pick it up.

#28 2 years ago

There's something about Dialed In I just can't stand. Maybe I'll get over it, probably not. Hobbit has perfect integration of adventure with the visuals and sounds.

Guys, Pirates is just a masterpiece, doesnt get old, i love it

#31 8 months ago

Pirates, DI, Hobbit. Wonka is very cool but didn't 'click' with me, and I have owned WOZ twice and sold it twice. Just .. i don't know. Not loud enough I think .. haha

#32 8 months ago

Pirates,Woz,Hobbit

#34 8 months ago

WoZ, Hobbit, and POTC.

#35 8 months ago

My current rank of the 5 JJP pins, although I only have 25-30 plays on Wonka.

1. JJPOTC - incredible design and such great toys. A wide body that plays like a standard body

2. Hobbit - I enjoy the modes, and like the longer ball runs in order to get to see and play modes. Arguably the best theme integration of any pin.

3. WOZ - completely innovative and forced other companies to up their game. 2 upper playfields, both of which are fun. Great code.

4. Dialed In - great shooter. I love the 2 separate types of modes, and believe the modes in this game are very fun and make great use of the camera.

5. Wonka - great shooter, and the ability to flow on the ramps is nicre. Lots of different shots, but I do wish it was a heavier mode-based game. This feels like a game designed for location play with quick ball times. Very different feel than the other JJP games.

5 incredible, high quality games. I’m looking forward to Eric’s next title.

#36 8 months ago

1. POTC
2. WOZ
3. DI
4. HOBBIT
5. WWCF

#37 8 months ago

Theres only 5. Why not make it top 5 and just list them in fav order.

#38 8 months ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Because this was a 1+ year old post that was done when there were only 3 pins. Makes sense now but not back then.

For me:
DI
WOZ
Hobbit
POTC
WWCF

With that said, the last two are last only because I don’t have enough playtime on either to make an accurate assessment.

I have the same experience with WOZ....I've owned two and really wanted to love the game, but found that there was almost too much going on, and very challenging to explain the rule set to kids/guests, etc....my ECLE was beautiful....so in my mind it wins on looks My buddy has a POTCLE and thats a really fun game....my vote would be POTC with Hobbit a close second

#41 8 months ago

I don't own any, because the game play and themes haven't given me the perfect package yet. I enjoy Dialed In, but the theme is just a bit weird.

1) Dialed In
2) Wizard of Oz
3) Pirates of the Caribbean

#42 8 months ago

My order below. Any of these would be great in a 1 pin collection.

1) JJPOTC (colossally good).

2) WOZ (shoots clunky, both upper playfields are fun and really make the game).

3) Hobbit (3 great mini wizard modes, 11 individual drops and user defined 1-4 balls per mode).

4) Wonka (shoots smoothly and one of JJP’s most intuitive games to play, but missing a strong toy).

5) Dialed In (shoots smoothly but theme prevents connection with player).

#43 8 months ago

My top 3 would be:
1) JJPOTC
2) Dialed In
3) WOZ or Wonka (not sure yet)
Hobbit has great video's and sound, but I like the game the least of all the JJP games.

And I'm really curious if the next game can become my new nr 1 or nr 2.

#44 8 months ago

Really regretting selling my DI. No space here to fit it, but I’d definitely get that again. I have WOZ 2 chances, and just couldn’t get there

#45 8 months ago

To rank the 5 games, I'd have to go with:

1) Wonka LE (liked it so much, I bought one this week)
2) DI
3) POTC (might switch with DI after getting more play time on it)
4) WoZ
5 thru 9) nothing
10) Hobbit

I love the Hobbit theme but didn't like the game at all (just didn't do it for me). Games 1 through 4 are all fun
