    I didn't put it in this thread Barbie as I particularly wanted to avoid this thread. This thread starts with heaps of what I'm suggesting is now done to death: the licencing of other peoples ideas and characters. I made that clear in the post. Whatever though.

    I may just wait for the next non-licensed table in preference to the next disney/marvel/popcap/McDonalds or whatever.

      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*

        No need to be offended, I combined them so it's easier for me to collect ideas to send to the team.

            My god man thats excelent.. Come to think of it.. A long long time ago on the MSX platform.. so basicaly around '83 ish there was a pinball game on it, forgot it's name though, wich basicaly had 3 tables stacked on top of each other.

            You launched into play in the topmost area and tried to keep it in play there, when it drained the game moved to the middle segment and down to third where it actualy could drain. However.. you also could, with some skill, fire the ball up from segment 3 to segment 2 and further to 1 if you could make the shot.

            Gah.. i hate that i forgot the name but for it's era that was a pretty nifty pinballer.

                    Time Warp Table.

                    I would like to see a table that had some of the elements of the older tables such as mechanical scoring, where they would click as the numbers went around a wheel as the score increased, the sound effects of the old style bumpers that gave a little bell ring sound as they were hit, and with some really neat 1950s style items in it such as a 1950s style car with rocket lights, chrome, and winged body ... and other 50s things too .. Jukebox, toaster ... what ever ... and of course 1950s style music playing.

                    But as you play the table and hit certain targets in a certain order or accomplish certain goals .... the 1950s items, sounds, backgrounds, music, mechanical scoring, bumper sounds ... would be transformed to futuristic items .... the 50s car would turn into a spaceship ...etc ... the mechanical scoring would become electronic, the sound future techno ... etc.

                    Piece by Piece and bit by bit you could change sections of the table from the past to the future or from the future back to the past ... and the goals will also change depending on the environment ...

                    To accomplish certain goals, you may have to have elements of both the 50s and the future on the table at the same time and depending on what elements are on the table at any given time, and from what time, your goals will change accordingly.

                    A mix of the old and new, a RetroBlast if you will

                      It might have been Roller Ball. I love the idea as well.

                        It sounds very good. Your idea reminds me Propinball Timeshock! a lot.

                            Besides the time warp table I suggested, the table I would really want the most would be an ORIGINAL STAR TREK table. I want the original sounds, voices, and an excellent table layout. Licensing would be a bitch but perhaps a kickstart program would help. Forget Picard, I want the unflappable Captain James T kirk ... and of course that sexy green lady !!!

                              Boardgame theme (Monopoly, Dominion, Life)
                              Chess theme
                              Post-apocolyptic theme (don't forget the mutant rats)
                              Grandfather clock theme? (kinda hard to visualize but lots of gears, hands, timed shots, etc.)
                              Economic/Business theme (start a business, deal with expenses, yada yada)
                              Black and White style table (could take a film noir theme)

                                Star Trek next generation

                                How about a Star Trek The Next Generation table for their remaster on blu-ray
