    I'm not burned out on the Marvel ones just yet, probably cause I'm a Marvel fanboy and that's what I was playing originally before it was all gathered under one umbrella in Zen 2. I did start dipping into some of the non-marvel tables recently out of curiosity and now enjoying them and what they have to offer. Love the Epic Quest table particularly.

      Like others, I'm not burnt out from Marvel tables, and I'm not even the biggest fanboy or anything (I don't own a single comic book), and no, I'm not 7 years old, either Like Shogun said, the innovation in some of these tables largely surpasses some of Zen's original work, but that's ok, because I'm sure the later tables will be something great.

        I'm burnt out with seeing only marvel tables being released time after time. I have no interest in Marvel tables and haven't bought a single one and only demoed a couple when I was bored.

        Hell I'd love the option to hide them from the main menu as they just clutter up the screen and as I said I have NO interest in them, but Zen continue to shove them in my face and I continue to lose interest in Zen.

        Worse still, FF and CA tables cost more than other tables. And other Marvel tables are in "Packs" so if I ever was interested in one table I wouldn't buy it because I'm forced to buy 3 others I wouldn't be interested in.

          All I can tell you is to give them a chance. You don't have to be a fan of comics/superheroes to enjoy them.

            Agreed. I have no interest in Marvel but I find most of the tables to be quite awesome, especially Blade and Infinity Gauntlet.

              Great topic Thirdrail. I don't know who to quote on this

              Yes, the marvel tables are nice (and i don't like the marvel franchise at all - infact i hate it (no hard feelings i hope), but i sure like zen pinball) So yes, i'd too like to see something new.

              The option to remove demo's and even tables you acquired are essential indeed.
              It would also be great if tables could be re-arranged to ones specific preference/need e.g.
              1 Blade 2 Plants vs zobies 3 sorcerers lair, etc

                The option to organize the tables would be cool.

                  Actually, after making that post I went and played some of the tables. I admit I was rather disappointed, they just seemed to be ramp-fests with animated characters, which indicates where most of the work went. Maybe it was because the time limits for the demos are ridiculously short, but I wasn't really interested in most of them. "Fear Itself" and "Iron Man" seemed interesting, but they were again is part of pack, so making me pay £8 for each table.

                  FF especially, rows of ramps and targets and no real feedback on what I was doing. It seems when Zen is forced to do something original is when their best tables come out imo.

                    I do agree that their original tables are more fun. But I also wouldn't categorize all the Marvel tables as "ramp-fests" but there are a few. Like I said before, Blade and Infinity Gauntlet are both impressive with diverse missions. Additionally, Avengers, Civil War, Fear Itself, and Moon Knight have some interesting aspects.

                        I like the Marvel tables, but agree that Zen really needs to get more non-Marvel tables out soon. That said, I'm real excited for the Doctor Strange table. If Zen could focus on more obscure characters like Sub-Mariner or Howard the Duck, I'd appreciate the variety and I think sales would actually increase. At this point, they probably captured all the Iron Man and Captain America fans they can.

                          Actually I just tried that now lol. In one hole, out the other. Nah what I meant was tables which are just basically a semicircle of ramps and targets with characters jumping around. PvZ fits in here too. Moon Knight feels the same way, very bland.

                          imo, the "Original Pack" is the best of them. ANd yet the 2 lone boards (CA and FF) that cost more are the ones I like the least XD

                          I admit that the theme does play a part for me a bit, there's not point playing a board where you're not actually interested in what you're doing. Tis why "Hero Quest" gets a big no for me, because the VO and theme just annoy me. And being not only British and female, Marvel is almost completely irrelevant to me XD


                          I also got bored and tried "Pinball Arcade". That didn't last long.

                            I thought that too after a few plays. Then I really got into it and the table has some surprises. And Pinball Arcade sucks. Stay away.

                            Try Infinity Gauntlet.

                              +1 I really don't see why some people don't like the Marvel tables. I can't get enough of them. As long as Zen makes them, I'll buy them. No matter what license it is.

                                Perhaps a My Little Pony license would whet your appetite.
