      About the table releases:

      Masters of time will be part of Season 6, but not counted against the 10 tables per Season. With the next table pack being a double EM pack as the hint suggests, we should get 12 tables in S6. We had 11 in S5, where we also had an EM double pack.

      Centigrade 37 isn't even an OG Gottlieb, by then Gottlieb had been sold to Columbia Pictures, so the rationalization that it's from the "good" Gottlieb time is just as funny as saying that Premier Gottliebs are bad; it's subjective.

      To be fair, Columbia Pictures bought Gottlieb but didn't change the management structure. It was still run by Judd Weinberg (D. Gottlieb's son in law) and Wayne Neyens still headed the engineering design team with the same team (the great Ed Krynski along with newer designers like John Osborne and Allen Edwell (who did C37). Wayne and Judd didn't leave until 1980 or so. Gottlieb was too late into the SS arena and with video games things weren't ever the same.

      So, yes, I would consider all EM games made by Gottlieb to still be part of their Golden Age as until solid state took over completely, it was pretty much the same team for thirty years, no matter who the ultimate owner was.
