    Which Williams/Bally packs should I buy?

    Hey everyone,

    Being a poor man I haven't been buying season passes but rather individual tables whenever my budget allows. My budget just won't let me buy up all the remaining Williams/Bally tables before the license ends, but fortunately I do already have all the Williams/Bally tables that I really wanted.

    But since this will be my last chance to buy any of the left overs before they're gone, I'm looking for some guidance on which tables I should invest in. So I am going for a poll. Any tables not in this poll I've either A) already bought or B) I've tried out and decided I have no interest.

    So these are the remaining contenders. I figure my budget will let me buy about 4 more tables so please feel free to place up to 4 votes. The results won't make the final determination, but they'll definitely be among the final contenders.

    Can you give some examples of tables you own and enjoy. Might make it easier to give you recommendations.

    The tables I've enjoyed the most are Attack From Mars (an easier table but a lot fun), T2, Doctor Who (b/c I'm a fan of the show), Diner (a more difficult table for me - but that's not a bad thing), Bride of PinBot, Taxi, and lately I've been playing a lot of Swords of Fury.

    I went for Dr. Dude & Firepower - I think those are 2 good tables for the price of one, same goes for Gorgar & Monster Bash. Eight Ball Deluxe as a bit more challenging table and Indy 500, because I think it's a nice table to play every now and then.

    Gorgar/Monster Bash and Eight Ball Deluxe are the must haves for me. After that the decision is tough. Lots of very good ones left. CV/Funhouse is a classic 2 pack. CFTBL and BK are also a good 2 pack, as is White Water/Space Shuttle. But I also couldn’t stand not having Bram Stokers Dracula, Fathom, Sorcerer, and Cactus Canyon.
    I feel for you. It’s tough to choose which friends to leave behind.

    Watch the videos on YouTube and see which theme clicks with you. Dracula for instance is pretty brutal but the movie license makes it stand out. Otherwise Monster Bash is a must, CV/Funhouse bundle as well and then maybe Space Shuttle /WW.

    It's tough!

    Thanks for all the suggestions, keep em coming. I plan to buy the tables as late as possible. So far the leader is "Gorgar / Monster Bash". I did enjoy trying out Monster Bash, but I wasn't all that impressed with Gorgar. I definitely do have a preference for mid 80's to early '90's tables.

    Your taste seem to align with mine. With that said:
    -you REALLY want monster bash. I dont dig Gorgar either, but MB is great.
    -Then, try out space shuttle, if you like SoF you might like that as well. If you do its a great pack with White water. Same goes for Black Knight and creature. (but I dont like BK).
    -If you like Tales ot Arabian nights and Theatre of magic, get CV and funhouse.
    -The fourth...yea I cant pick....its between like 6 or 7 tables...
