    No, it isn't! Captain America, Fantastic Four and Plants vs Zombies are also at the same price. The price increase is across the board. All future individual tables will be be the same way. Table Pack are exception to the rule, since you are buying a bundle.

Zen will have artistic constraints on how they represent the games when dealing with this franchise, plus there will be numerous royalty payments they need to pass on to the gamers for something they may or may not be interested in. Civil War is the most expensive single table to date, and while it remains good value it seems fairly standard Zen fare to the non Marvel fan.
      Table price went up? I swore individual tables were $2.99 when I first got ZP, I know they were $2.99 when I got ZP2.

        I can see where the confusion is coming from. All of the tables that were on ZP1 and MP were transferred over to ZP2 with the same price tag. All ZP1 add-ons are $2.49, while the table packs (4 tables each) are $9.99. The $2.99 price wasn't introduced until F4 released out on MP. All individual tables (F4, CA, PvZ and Civil War) since then have been releasing out for $2.99.

        It should be noted that NobbNutts lives in Europe and prices there could be different from the US.

          Ok, Europe/US would make sense.

          My comment on this was mainly because I don't think I bought single tables when ZP came out. I would have bought them in bundles. I bought all the individual ones, and the marvel bundles, since ZP2 came out. Maybe I didn't notice a price change because I didn't see 50 cents as a big deal.

            Are you kidding me? A lot of the community's suggestions get implemented. I wouldn't take it personally that just because you suggested a table a week ago, we aren't making it right away. I've said it before and I'll say it again... we're a small team, these things take time. We are working on lots of new projects right now, just be patient.

                      Ah yes, the classic time warp between reality and the internet.

                      Someone comes up with a suggest and they assume it can be applied 2-4 weeks later. In reality, it takes 9 months to make a table and the number ideas/suggestions are in the hundreds (if not thousands).

                        Actually that was a bit misdirected anger at all the marvel tables, sorry. I also prolly meant gameplay suggestions, not just table suggestions. From better button configs, ability to hide tables, portrait mode etc.

                        Maybe you should make a non-table suggestions thread for it all to go in In the end you can ignore table ideas all you want, some of them are probably there just for a laugh, but don't ignore the fact that people ARE getting bored of Marvel boards :3

                        EDIT: In the end I don't have any mean intentions, and was probably trying to be joking. I'm sorry if I come across as mean. Not very good at the whole... social... talking... making myself understood... thing...

                          Hi folks, just to explain, I'm in the UK on the euro servers. We paid USD $3.82 for Civil War. This is still exceptional value and I am not complaining, but it did seem more expensive than the old ZP1 individual tables (USD $2.54). Also, the other ZP2 table Plants vs. Zombies is USD $3.18

                          Pathetic, I know, I'm not whinging about a measly 64 cents, but my point is that is actually 17% of the costs going to a franchise which many of us aren't too concerned with. Still pathetic though

                            Not sure a few posts on a forum are representative.Sometimes they are, often enough they aren't.The only thing that is representative to Zen is how many tables are being sold.If the Marvel tables are outperforming the other tables then it makes sense to ride the Marvel wave.And the Marvel tables that are great like Infinity Gauntlet, Fear Itself, Moon Knight or Blade are without a doubt among the best tables overall.In fact all of them are fun.I'd be happy if more Marvel tables are in the pipeline but i also want original Zen tables and surprises.A healthy balance and variety.Or otherwise just drop the name Zen and go with Marvel Pinball entirely.

                              Funny you say that. The Marvel name alone kept me from ever buying or even trying Marvel Pinball even though I knew it was from Zen. Hopefully they don't go back to it.

                                No worries We are aware that a vocal minority are getting worn out on the whole Marvel thing, and I've said before that we're working on other stuff, so don't worry too much. When I send my report to the team, I send every suggestion we get via the forums/Twitter/Facebook/blog/email. We have a huge list of stuff we'd like to do and an even bigger list of stuff we need to do. Unfortunately some things take priority over others and we aren't able to do everything we want to. My point is that I don't want people to feel like we aren't listening, because we definitely are. Please keep suggesting features and table ideas! It just takes time to get things done and we have to prioritize in order to bring you new tables on a fairly regular basis.
