Have had mine since July,( paid a premium) and can say it is easily my most played and favorite machine. I think the LED lighting theme really favors the ECWOZLE ( green).

The latest code is just mind blowing....I get crushed but keep coming back for more, and the occasional game you can get some MB stacks going together, the game just pours on the points. This machine is already a Classic on several levels, and feel extremely fortunate to have/ enjoy mine.

Ongoing support is awesome ( I've talked to Eric on freakin Sunday nights sometimes!!!).

HIGHLY recommend you play the machine.....mine is a keeper, period. Only way it leaves is if I'm done w pinball ( which probably means I'm dead), and even then I suspect my Family wouldn't part with it......mark

JJP Team......THANK YOU!!,

Quoted from wcbrandes:

Very often 30 to 45 min games. Im not saying im good but 1.2 and above usually lasts that long and is an amazing experience with times of a true work out in a good way!

Mine seems like it has a mind of its own ( like some of my other machines).....once I updated to 3.0, I had about a week of long, killer games. Seems it leveled off, now kicking my ass quickly and ruthlessly. What OZ giveth he takes back...ha...I swear I'm playing the same...gotta be the machine...

#116 6 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Man, I'm not any kind of awesome player, but I at least feel like I don't suck, and I don't consider WOZ an "easy" pin. Hour long games seem nuts to me. Are you playing with no pitch and the outlanes all the way in or what?

WOZ and "easy" definitely don't go together....completely agree...

Quoted from iceman44:

Woz is kicking my ass right now, sometimes great scores, then a run of terrible…..

Just turned mine off now for that very reason....mine has chosen to become a drain monster the last couple of nights...whew....nothing worse than launching a ball and never even getting a flipper on it ( with 5 available...ha)....

#119 6 years ago
Quoted from arcadenerd925:

Yeah, same here, but i also recently took the easy out and turned on the ball save for 7 seconds, heh.

Hah...I've already got mine set for 5 seconds...on nights like tonight, probably added a whopping 3 minutes to my games....came close to some " glass off" time, just to smash some modes I was never going to get tonight, but refrained.....evil Keith, evil Keith......

Quoted from iceman44:

Well, I've got 3 girls to go with the wife and you should be thrilled all she grabbed was a dolla bill. I'm like a broken ATM machine...... a 13 year old Son.....I don't even think they know what a dollar is.....they go straight for the $20's....

orrr lending your machine to a friend who owns none and they get addicted and you never get it back! commendable? it sucks!

Knew it!!!.....good luck getting it back

Anyhow.... Read my post:
It pretty much sums it up. 'Amazing On-Time Delivery Story'.
Join me in this celebration and raise your glasses to a most incredibly designed machine and bathe yourselves in this wonderful story of how a small poor child born into poverty raised himself above the challenges set forth before him and his family, and brought to himself, his wife and his children, this incredible experience that brings happiness to all of those that have surrounded this poor young man and his family. (a touching story, you've got to read.)
HAHA, having fun here, Deliriously Happy... just wanting to share with my pinside buddies. (you've got to read the post)

Saw it...CONGRATS!!! Awesome machine.....

Quoted from bigduke6:

Well, this will be my first post in this thread. Why? Because my first ever NIB is sitting in the back of the Suburban. My WOZ was picked up today. Standard with shaker and invisaglass. To say I'm excited is an understatement. My distributer said a new update is a week or two away. I know this has been asked before but what should be done right away? Cliffys, of course, anything else?
BTW, until my son gets home the 350 pound box stays in the truck. Damn.

Congrats, and welcome to the club!!!....Lloyd's recommendations are spot on, as way to make the box lighter, sadly .....don't forget to call and get on the owners forum, as well.....enjoy, enjoy!!!....mark

#375 6 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

What's everybody's optimal pitch level?

I confess...I put the back as high as she goes and the front as just above 6.5 degrees on my floor ( measured on the playfield, of course) ...side to side is pretty key on this machine as well ( similar to TZ in that regards)...absolute level.

Don't know if that's to much tilt or not, but I like it....

Quoted from indybru:

Well, I'm very interested in getting this pin and brought this up the the family. I was thrown a curve ball my 5 year old grandson is afraid of the witch. My granddaughter age 3 I don't know but she's petrified of Yoda.
Thoughts ? The pins are in the basement and they like to play down there. I purposely avoided some pins for that very reason like BSD, Met etc. the list goes on.

Guess it depends on if they are around when you, or others play WOZ. Won't be able to hide her, as she is prominent on the display, and especially in the audio while battling her....might be worth a trip where it's on location and see how they behave before buying it....

I don't have little ones around, but could imagine a little fear there.....she just aggravates me...mark

#620 5 years ago
Quoted from mountaingamer:

I hate her and want nothing more than to beat her!!!!!


#622 5 years ago
Quoted from indybru:

It looks like the witch is also on the backglass. This came up when my wife and I were out of town skiing. We mentioned to the kids thursday we were looking to get WOZ pinball.
My daughter was going to show him (grandson) a WOZ you tube, he wants me to get spiderman instead. My wife is going to access the damage monday. Meanwhile my son and his wife are major bummed if I don't get this pin.
Frank keeps asking my daughter about the witch. (glad he hasn't made it to see the monkeys) my wife was freaked out about them in the day.

So is Frank the Grandson ( sorry, I'm a little confused)? SM has Venom, Goblin, Sandman, and Doc Ock...all scary too.....

WOZ has the awesome display screen...major plus, but definitely gets bystanders in the game, and images are quite animated ( has he seen the witch on the machine, or just the movie?)

Light show and other stuff might be a great there one on location that you can take him to see? Probably only way to tell for sure...good luck....awesome machine ( highly, highly recommend).....mark

Quoted from DaveH:

I just checked my audits. I've battled the witch 10 times, and beat her 3. For some reason that feels pathetic, but at least the last time I beat her I did well on the victory laps.
Even though I had some minor issues with my game (which Jack fixed of course), I have to say that WOZ was an amazing effort for a first game. The level of play in the game is just stunning. A year and 4 months and the game still feels fresh and new. I do still struggle with Rescue Multiball (I'm really wanting to complete it someday). And for some reason I still can't start Munchkin Multiball even when I try. And to me, that makes a great game. I'm still trying to do new things after this long.
In fact someone on the google group mentioned the YBR strategy, and I've been trying that.
So Jack, yeah, nice job building a great game.

No way I'm checking mine....I've only beaten her twice, but generally get to that mode every session I have.....been @ the final shot many times, but as you know, if it's not done in a certain time, you have to go back and hit the castle, then ramp again....AHHHH...tonight is WOZ night, and I shall try again....have had my Tronle kicking my ass last 2 nights....WOZ's, I love this game!!!!

Quoted from bdaley6509:

Hi guys. I ordered a 75th Ed. yesterday from PinballSTAR. Can I join the club? This will be my first pin since I had to sell my previous collection a year or so ago. Looking forward to owning the game!


#693 5 years ago

yeah, but the last sequenced (timed) order is just a bitch for me.....thought I melted her last night, as my final white shot went up the ramp...started celebrating before the damn castle lit again...whew that mode kills's what i play for about 90% of the time...

I'll turn it off and end the night on TAF just to calm down.....pressure, pressure!!!

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Joined the club today! Received my NIB Emerald Green LE and it's working flawlessly. And has a monkey! :p I got this from automated services. What's interesting is that even though the build date on the machine was 2015, it has 2.0 boards. Love that NIB smell!
Box even has a label that says 2.0 boards.

Happy day here. Picked this up yesterday, set it up today. Man, it’s gonna take some time to figure this one out. I assume it’s much deeper than say, TZ? Can’t wait to log some hours on it![quoted image]

Congrats!!! A great, great game there....

Quoted from pinballinreno:

I have had zero problems with 7.5v boards in 5 years of continuous operation.

Agreed...2nd gen 7.5v boards ( that dealt w static and inrush issues) are quite solid. Mine have been very stable, even after a moment of temporary insanity, attempting to add aftermarket led " amazastrips".. ..Boards took the hit and rebounded nicely.

Eric's brilliance truly shined on this effort, saving the game, imho...Very greatful.

#8398 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

so could be a silly question but does continously turning on and off the machine put more "stress" on the light boards or is it better to just turn it on once and let it play throughout the day even if you're not using it a ton?

CPU still going to go through boot process, and can't imagine it causing any additional stress on the boards.

I'm always concerned w heat causing component failure, so my vote would be like all my devices...On when I want to use them, off when not. Trying to keep "operational hours" as low as possible.
