    So I guess not all.

    (Although I do want all of the 70s Gottliebs you mentioned.)
    I should have been more clear. I didn't mind getting Spanish Eyes at all (and Wild Card which I had never played) and of course assumed more Gottliebs would come later, and when i said all i should have said that much of the discussion in the forums wanted to see the [perhaps limited in number of tables] licenses for Bally/Williams be used for solid state games and Gottlieb for the EM's, playing to the strengths.

    So I wasn't trying to speak for all the audience but instead thinking that Farsight going for the William's EM's was unexpected and perhaps the reason was they had used their allotment of Gottlieb tables.

    Bottom line is I love EM's (and mostly pre DMD solid states) and if they still have the ability to produce Gottliebs I sure wish they would. But it's starting to sound like this is the end of the line.

    I’d be happy to see anything with flippers at this point.

    I just wish they'd take advantage of the Gottlieb license (assuming they still have it for new tables which they may not - otherwise why do Spanish Eyes and Wild Card when all the EM enthusiasts wanted 70's Gottliebs). I understand they wouldn't sell as well as flashy 90's Bally/William's but it seems some allocation of resources could be put to that.

    I wonder how much it would take to convince them. Knowing they would get some sales on EM's, how much would they need up front to be convinced to do say, Royal Flush, Spirit of 76, Atlantis, and Surf Champ? My abilities to realistically maintain actual machines are diminishing and I think I'd rather put my gameroom money towards preservations of these classics. I thought vpx might satisfy me as apparently it's an easier install these days but watching vids just showed me how many of the EM's have the rule sets implemented incorrectly. I trust Farsight to do it right.

    How much do they need to do the above four tables? 25k? I'd kick in at least a 1000. I want these games done right.

    Maybe still unrealistic.
    I wouldn't contribute to any future FarSight kickstarters. Twilight Zone-gone. ST:TnG-gone. T2-gone. Dr. Who-gone. AC/DC-gone.
