    Phantom of the Opera

    I really like the one that Data East made (art and music wise), but I know Zen can add so some much more meat to the concept.

    I was really hoping Zen would have done a Super Mario Bros table. Miiverse constantly asks for it. That and Zelda are the 2 most requested Nintendo tables. However, I remember Barbie saying that she would love for Zen to do it, but Nintendo has a tight leash on their franchises and the very fact that it would have to be exclusive to Nintendo. Zen wants their tables to be available to everyone now. So I don't think it's going to happen...the SMB table. I hope something else similar or on the level with that can happen though.

    Not to worry, i still love Zen and will support them in the future.It is very understandable to go with the biggest licenses possible and discard the rest.I just wish that Zen would find a much better balance between commercial and less commercial tables/ideas.But i guess it is too late for that.
    Funny, I find that I actually like the tables with no licenses such as Sorcerer's Lair, Paranormal, Mars and Earth Defense are my favorites and those types I seem to like the most, im not really sure why. Maybe because they are new idea's vs. star wars or marvel where I already know what to expect... I played that Soccer table demo the other day and I liked that also. Plants vs. Zombies seems great too, will buy that before too long most likely. Definitely not into the comic tables unless there are any that are really great that I dont know about?

    Super Mario Brothers table would be fun too. Fighting against Bowser, collect the powerups, ball goes down drain pipes.... tons of ideas for that...

    But sadly all this will never happen.Zen are horrified of horror so to speak and also would need to create a standalone platform to sell these tables under a higher age restriction.Now Zen is focused on maximum commercial output with Marvel, Star Wars and even The Walking Dead(which should be a R-rated table if you want to do it right).
    The room for original, edgy or less commercial themes seems almost non-existent to me.A shame really.So many possibilities will be left unconsidered and many great suggestions throughout the threads are in vain.

    Id love to see a Christmas themed table for the holidays!
    Great idea! That could be a lot of fun and cheap to make as I'm sure we don't have to pay anyone for THAT license

    I'll add a BMX table, James Bond themed tables would be cool and how about a Radiohead table!

    Few more ideas. Of course you could do a ton of movie themed tables, some that came to mind quickly:

    Indiana Jones
    Back to the Future
    The Goonies
    Lord of the Rings
    Aliens or Alien vs. Predator

    Another idea was for a Casino themed table.

    I'm not sure if this has been suggested before, but what about a set of tables based on the games by Blizzard Entertainment? World of Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft are all humongously popular and would tap into a market that hasn't been reached yet. Think about it. WoW is the top grossing game of all time.

    Consider it done! I'll try not to be overbearing though.

Never again did we play that game. It's funny now but it really pissed me of back then, lol.
    Hahahahahaha that's hilarious! I hit my older brother over the head so hard with his Monopoly board that it broke in half. He was totally stealing from the bank... he taped the board back together but he never asked me to play again for some reason

    Anyway - I meant to tell you I like how your table wishlist is in your signature! Would be cool to see others doing this as well!

    Aquaman is my favorite dc guy. I just felt obliged to put the big 2 on the list first for obvious reasons.
    I was real happy with injustice game and how they treated him. I dominated with him. I loved the shark special and using the trident to whoop people up! Aquaman rocks! I think he's in the new batman v superman: dawn of justice movie too. I think he'll be played by that game of thrones dude.
