I know, no one knows what Wonka is until Friday. It would be my first new purchase of a game and I sort of want the excitement of getting in early and getting a game delivered new. I'm a big JJP fan and love my WOZ so complimenting it with Wonka would be great. I was also considering pirates as I'm a disney fan. I haven't played any of these games (JJP PoTC, Octoberfest or Wonka, obviously) so that's another concern. I can play PoTC but not sure I can get to an Octoberfest anytime soon. I would consider a Houdini (my username is such) but I am not a huge fan of the over-tight layout and game play nor the animations/voiceovers. So, I think my question boils down to what is Octoberfest like compared to what we would all imagine Wonka will be like? Is it a serious contender? Does it have the same sort of polish that JJP does, the same kind of detailed ruleset and fun sort of layouts? Knowing that I love my ToM and WOZ would I like Octoberfest or Wonka (presumably) more?
Any input, thoughts would be help for me in deciding which route to pursue.
Oh also, what are the likely differences in the Wonka editions? I am unfamiliar with the PoTC differences and can't find a comparison on the JJP site. I don't care too much about a "collectors" edition just for the extra "value" of the game, more if there were real functional differences. I would love to have a RR or LE WOZ but for the price my standard is great. Trying to plan a budget and I don't think it's going close to $11k.
