    I may just wait for the next non-licensed table in preference to the next disney/marvel/popcap/McDonalds or whatever.
    No need to be offended, I combined them so it's easier for me to collect ideas to send to the team.

    True there but we have a few off the hero/villain tables as well scattered among the same theme. An Uncharted theme would not hurt my eyes alongside El Dorado wich I enjoy as well as the adventuring stuff is nice.

    So.. I still wanna shoot Drake's balls.. *ahem*

    MediEvil (Sir Dan and the locations in Gallowmere were amazing.)

    LittleBigPlanet (judging from all the pinball themed levels users make, that might be pretty popular)

    Ratchet and Clank (Please, keep bugging him!)

    Wonders of the Ancient World (Colossus of Rhodes, Pyramids, Great Wall, etc...) or even just Ancient Egypt

    A table that captures the vibe of claymation creature movies the way that Earth Defence gets the old alien invasion movies... can draw inspiration from Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts, 20,000,000 Miles to Earth, anything by Ray Harryhausen, or even older flicks like Lost World and King Kong.

    Atlantis--before or after sinking... or maybe it sinks during the game (table shakes & colors change, or the two level idea already mentioned) It's a sunken utopian city that doesn't require licensing. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Bioshock!

    Loved the literary theme suggestion (my vote is Alice in Wonderland... but also loved the ones already suggested), and I would love an art themed table too... something like Starry Starry Night as a pinball table.

    Something along the lines of Blade Runner or Metropolis. Even just a general cyberpunk/futuristic theme. Hopefully with some kind of android or cyborg.

    I agree with you to an extent, although I am sure licensing well-known names like Marvel does help their sales. But I totally agree with letting Zen create more original tables and I love your progression table idea with four elements or seasons or anything really. I would love to see a multi-layered table with a fantasy theme where adventurers could delve into the Underworld, which would open up a new table below the original playing surface. I would like to see less "regulation style" tables is what it boils down to basically.

    Original Table Themes

    I like the Marvel Tables, and I like the PvZ table but...

    I'd like to see Zen make tables of their own, or use ideas from the forum. I see a thread about sports tables; that sounds good. I saw a thread somewhere where a guy suggested Leonardo Di'Vinci (not a clue if that's spelt correctly), and I thought that was a great idea; imagine the Tesla designer let loose with that. I think I saw an idea for Atlantis somewhere, making me think of the table flooding during play.

    I don't see the need to constantly licence things of other companies, with all the expense and handshaking that must be needed. Surely the forum and Zen are more than capable of having loads of cool table ideas. I bet Zen don't sell more just because it says Marvel, although I could be wrong.

    My cool idea would be a quad pack that only played as a single table...stay with me here. So when you trigger certain features you were able to teleport, or roll through, to the next table; then to others or back to the first...I think that's clear. Perhaps it could be the Four Elements, or some other quad-like theme.

    I like the idea of using iconic games from smaller studios as they have done with Plants Vs Zombies (sorry if that's considered a derogatory comment regarding PopCap).
    I think games such as Limbo and Joe Danger would make for fantastic tables.
    Using legendary characters from history may also be a way to go. A Genghis Khan table or a Julius Caesar table for example.
    I'm also loving the suggestions for a fishing/tropical fish table. I'm sure you guys at ZEN could make a stunning table with a water theme.

    Any literary themes (Arabian Nights, Odyssey, Iliad, Dante's Inferno, etc.)
    Farming or fishing theme
    Sports theme (soccer, golf, baketball, etc.)
    Poker theme
    Wild West theme (would love this...Red Dead Redemption)

    You mentioned a couple of themes that I would LOVE to do a table for: Ratchet & Clank (I'm good friends with Insomniac's Community Manager, and I constantly bug him about it.. haha) and Walking Dead!! Oh and Minecraft too... that would be nuts!

    Mining theme
    Deep sea diving theme
    African safari or Wildlife theme
    Aztec theme
    Egyptian theme (this would be a great table to represent the Underworld two-level table)
    Stephen King novels (OMG, that would be an awesome license but probably won't fit into PG mentality of Zen)
    Musical theme (I'm envisioning a lot of lights and beats, maybe a techno, dubstep or electronic table)
    Rafting theme
    Chinese Zodiac theme
    Samurai theme (this could still be done without much overlap to Ninja Gaiden)

    I like the fishing theme idea, could you imagine the possibilities with that. The table would look awesome. Ponds, rivers, fish and equipment. Fish on!

    Farming or fishing theme
    OMG! *Farmville* table with the overly cute graphics and everything! (But then, I'm not sure I would ever ask anyone to willingly pair with the evil likes of Zynga... That would be cruel and unusual punishment!)

    I think Zen could do a good job on a western theme without needing a license. It seems most of us want a mature table or two added to the mix like a mob table. While I'm not opposed to the sports theme table that some are suggesting, I only envision golf making a decent table. A 4 pack of sports would probably be Zen's lowest selling pack.
