    Funhouse seems like an obvious one to go with. Theater of Magic would seemingly be a very interesting selection, if not very ambitious.

    Just seen this:

    https://comicbook.com/gaming/2018/09...eal-exclusive/

    and the following are mentioned at the end of the article:

    Judge Dredd
    Road Show
    Cactus Canyon
    Safe Cracker
    The Shadow
    Congo

    I'd be happy with all of those!

    Attack From Mars
    White Water
    Theatre of Magic
    The Shadow

    Surely they HAVE to have at least one table in the next pack that wasn't in TPA??

    No licensed table soon, so no JD, Congo and TS soon I guess.

    I’ll be buying the next volume no matter what it brings just to support Zen and the wonderful enhancements they have brought to the originals as even though I currently own 3 pins and in fact more than 30 over the years I’m just loving the animations and effect which in a vpin brings em right up to date IMO.

    Anyway my guesses
    AFM - owned 2 in the past and this alone justifys the whole pack for me
    TOM - owned this but quickly sold on as found a little easy and repetitive (a mate owns one)
    CP - also owned but theme didn’t work for me so off it went
    BR - scrapped one of these for parts

    In my dreams
    TAF - had a beautiful Gold version but sold as offered mad money for it
    MB - regret selling mine, easy but tons of fun, this is perfect for Zen to enhance
    TZ - I own one now but would love to see the enhanced version (so many toys)
    BBB - yep it’s capcom but like I said one can dream

    Either way whatever Zen brings in volume two has me really excited

    Not going to happen. Odds are they might end up under a separate category according to the license holders. They don't like having packs of different companies bundled together (Universal and Paramount for instance).

    Thinking about what they said about being unable to mix in games from different licenses, they may do a Bally only pack. Then again, since Bally and Williams are basically one, I wouldn't be surprised to see a mix between the two. If they keep focusing on DMD games for now:

    Attack From Mars is a very strong candidate.
    Theatre of Magic is strong.
    Cirqus Voltaire is a great one.

    ...the 4th table is a toss up. Out of the non-licenses, I'd like to see TotAN done first.

    The licensing comments from Zen are interesting.

    Both Junk Yard and Getaway have some minor licensing with their main tunes but I suspect Zen is talking about a fully licensed table (TZ, STTNG, etc) not being packed with other tables.

    I don’t see why the Bally vs. Williams title should matter. They were both the same thing in the 90’s. Other than the fact that Steve Ritchie games were always under the Williams brand. Not that it matters.

    It does seem like Zen is following the same mindset as FarSight in that they’re not sure about the future of this title so they’re gonna release the “best” stuff first.

    Did Zen in the interview if the next pack will be out before the end of the year?

    From the FAQ:

    "How many tables do you plan to release within a year?
    We are launching 4 tables with the first release, and we should have another 4 tables out before the end of 2018. 2019 will be very busy with releases, you will not be disappointed!"

    Soft licenses that don't require a huge payout vs licensing an entire IP, that's the difference. We won't be seeing any licensed IPs until around Volume 4 according to comments Mel has made.

    Zen also commented on releasing the 'best stuff', in that those AAA are the most requested and they also have to factor in all their Zen customers who never bought TPA titles. They are most certainly not following FarSight's 'model', which is to say FarSight didn't have a long term plan at all. Zen on the other hand is playing a long game but they most certainly wanted to make a splash right off the bat. And just wait until those licensed tables do start rolling in, as they'll be doing stuff, without those god forsaken kickstarters, that FarSight simply wouldn't pony up for.
    I'm just sayin'

    Yeah, the fact that Zen already has so many licensed original tables tells me all I need to know about the potential for licensed Williams tables to come out. And while it seems like they're starting with packs of tables, Zen certainly isn't beyond releasing a single table (The Walking Dead or Portal both spring to mind). They could absolutely just release Twilight Zone by itself for a few bucks.

    tagline : This table pack blows.

    Sorry Comet - you'll have to wait for the space themed pack.

    I think this would be a major disaster.

    Alternate suggestion:

    TotAN
    CV
    Cyclone

    These games are "in tents"

    AFM

    TOM

    I predict non-DMD tables will come with enhanced versions that do feature DMD animations.

    They're going to split up the heavy hitters, that way each pack will be compelling. Therefore assuming there are no heavy licensed titles in the next few packs:

    - Attack from Mars
    - Tales of the Arabian Nights
    - Whitewater
    - Theatre of Magic
    - Creature of the Black Lagoon
    - Circus Voltaire
    - Red and Ted Road Show

    … will all be on separate packs or at worse, there may be two of these max as part of a pack. I predict you will not see the top 4 I listed as part of the same pack. These are carrots and we're the friggin horses who will follow wherever they are. I do agree with what was posted earlier: Once the first two pack are done, if they are able to, put one table per pack that hasn't been done in TPA

    I think there's a very good chance we'll see Champion Pub or Black Rose in the next volume. Pity, I don't mind Black Rose but I'm not much of a fan of Champion Pub.

    If they're looking for mass market 'standards' to start, Pinbot or Bride of Pinbot should be in one of the early packs. Hopefully BoP will offer a family mode disable since the table had no pro option in TPA.

    There's a table that could offer some very interesting Zen 'enhancements'!

    With their comment about 2019 being "very busy with releases," I am hopeful that will include an EM pack snuck in somewhere. But I wouldn't expect to see such a thing until probably like pack 6 or so.
