It can't go on forever, so orders in by end of April... £1k down, balance when games here whenever that is. Delivery to your door included.

If we dont get a min of 5 orders its not worth ordering from JJP....

'There's a folder in the last update called "There and Back Again" that wasn't in the previous code updates. I'll guess There and Back Again is the super wizard mode that is coming. I wouldn't be surprised if the number if modes completed and scores in them influences scoring in the super wizard mode. '

This is an awesome game, I know folks bash it but at home its the one I always come to play.

Also friends and Airbnb players pretty much all say this is their favourite game.

What a great deal from Phil. :clap:

I saw the jjp live stream lastnight and they officially confirmed a significant hobbit update is coming soon alongside an imminent update to dialed in. So that's good to hear.

I've always been of the opinion that no code update will make the hobbit a half decent game but I love all things pinball so hopefully this will prove me wrong. Still an outstanding looking game but there is only so many multiballs a man (and women of course) can play.

As someone considering a POTC that was one of my major concerns after watching the live stream last night. Very quickly the comment came from Eric, " I now have all 5 Multiballs set up to go and I can be running many at the same time". I'm not sure from those that have already played POTC but is it also very multi-ball heavy? This may be something jjp think we need. Many and frequent multi balls. I'm not sure. I like the modes in DI far more than the multi balls. In fact I actively dislike the 2 ball multi ball in DI and think it contributes little. The modes are fun and multi ball gets in the way. I cancel multi ball wherever I can to regain the modes at the phone. Would consider ordering a hobbit and potc , but concerned if it would be endless multi balls in both cases.

You really can't knock JJP for supporting their code.

I sincerely hope it's improved since the last time i played it - 1.5yrs ago now - as that was a terrible experience :(

Seems a shame, but this must be why they are offering such a good deal, people who like pinball already have enough hairy feet in their lives...
