    Very similar in price if I want a mint Indiana. Which is the better choice for having one game and for future value?

    I had Indy. Sold it . Sure, it’s a great pin, but does not have the depth of code, lighting etc that POTC has. I think in a home environment you’ll have much more to do in POTC. Both great pins, I think you should spend some time on both of them and pick the theme you enjoy most

    I have both and they are the two absolute permanent keepers of my six pins of space in my house but if I had to pick one........JJPOTC. It is simply amazing in all ways! Both have a lot to do but you have 25 years of advancement on JJPOTC and they just nailed every aspect of the game.

    The JJP POTCLE is similar in price to a Williams Indy Jones? I thought the LE was like 12K or something.

    It’s really hard to find a mint IJ. I have a HEP one that I love and will never sell.

    I’m getting a POTC, but would never take it over IJ.

    I would get the IJ now, and then buy a POTC HUO one later.

    If your going to add the color dmd and pinsound to the Indy, Indy wins.

    I think it may be the best overall package when it comes to theme integration.

    Replace pirates with IJ theme and you have the winner! Seriously though IJ gameplay is such a let down to me that I would go pirates but I wish that wasn't the case as IJ could be the best theme of all time

    I got my Indy about 6 months ago. I will agree that the color dmd on Indy makes all the difference. First thing I did to it. It is a truly a timeless classic.

    Pirates LE is 9500 plus shipping. However there are not a lot out there and supposedly production is over with potentially no new run ever. That means there will be a lot less pirates out there than Indy to find down the road.

    Theme for me is paramount with a pin. Even if the layout and gameplay is great I can’t get past a theme that I don’t love to purchase. Both of these themes are perfectly executed and incredible to play. No real wrong answer.

    Both are amazing and loaded pins. I would choose Pirates (and did) partially due to the deep ruleset design and technology offered in the game that is implemented in unique ways. Indy has always felt a bit too cluttered and closed off towards the middle / upper part of the game for my taste and I love widebody pins.
