What are your thoughts. Considering both, can only have one.

Whirlwind by a mile. Champion Pub looks really cool and seems great at first, but has to be one of the most boring late WPC era games ever made.

Notice how many you see come up for sale on here. Somehow still commands a decent price, but no staying power in a collection.

Whirlwind is an all time classic. CP is an okay game that gets stale after a while. Would probably be okay on a larger collection. It depends on if you are a collector that needs a dmd screen in all his pins to be happy. Otherwise WW by a mile.

If it was the 90's and I am dumping coins to play, Whirlwind all day long. Pub is alright, but the wind blowing in my hair demands respect.

Somehow, playing CP doesn't even feel like you are playing pinball. Dumb game in my opinion.

CP is all novelty that has a very short "Best if Played By:" date before any entertainment value expires. Near the bottom of the WMS DMD pile, IMO.

Like others have said, WW by a mile. Not only is it a way better game, you can get it for half the price of CP. No brainer.

WW by everyone's miles combined. CP is actually pretty cool as an oddity, but def wouldn;t need to own one.

#9 2 years ago

WW by a mile.
WW is one of the greatest games ever created IMHO.

As a seemingly rare person that really likes CP - I wish the prices reflected this thread's vote totals more.
