@NaviAndMii I've only got the 3 free tables and they're suiting me fine for now. Only really started playing in the past week or so as @Oorwullie has set-up some weekly challenge tourneys. Will invest in more tables at some point for sure.

@Lroy Oh nice! The only table I appear to have is 'Sorcerer's Lair', unfortunately...still a lot of fun though - and has done more than enough to convince me to add a few more at some point

I'll keep an eye out for @OorWullie's challenges - injecting a bit of friendly competition in to the game will only add to the experience, I'm sure! ..got a truly whopping score on the above table last night - not sure I'll be able to improve on that for some time - but having a weekly high-score challenge (or something) to work towards should be a lot of fun!

@oorWullie Any chance you could post the Pinball challenges in this thread too?

We've had a 5-minute challenge on SORCERER'S LAIR which @MasterLeon won. We just finished a 5-minute challenge on SON OF ZEUS which I somehow managed to fluke and win.

Here's the next one in case anyone is interested in taking part:

@Lroy when you finally decide to get some more tables I'd highly recommend checking out the portal table, much cheaper than buying a pack of 3/4 and it has really clear mission structure like sorcerers lair. Fantastic portal feels too, makes me yearn for a portal 2 switch remake...

Yes, if we are intending to make these challenges a regular thing, sure I will invest in other tables. Which table pack has the most value e.g. The most tables for your money?

I don't have any affinity with PORTAL having never played either game. Not that, that would stop me from buying the table. I just mean in general, I've no hankering for any specific table. So I'll likely pick-up whatever DLC Pack includes the most tables regardless of what IP they feature.

Seeing as though I missed out on 2 of the original 3 free tables, I'll probably look to add the 'Carnivals and Legends' pack (Son of Zeus and Adventure Land) at some point soon so that I can complete that set and join in the fun a bit more regularly

I only have Sorcerer's Lair right now, unfortunately - I've had a ton of fun with it though - more than enough to convince me to throw a bit of cash their way and expand my table collection

@NaviAndMii I'd recommend Castlestorm and the Wild West table,Iron & Steel pack I think it's called. They're £4 for both I think. I was thinking those 2 would be good tables for the next tournaments. There's a couple of individual tables too that are cheap,Portal and Walking Dead. Both are really good. Epic Quest is a quality table but it comes bundled with Excalibur which I'm not a fan of. After those tables then it would be onto the £10 packs,if we are to keep these tournaments running weekly.

@NaviAndMii Noticed you had a gargantuan score on that table too. Well played!

@OorWullie Thanks for the advice! I was looking at the Portal and Walking Dead tables earlier - they're both pretty cheap, so I might be able to get them using only My Nintendo Gold Coins if I save up a few more ..and if I add the Carnivals & Legends and Iron & Steels packs too, that'll be a pretty nice (and reasonably priced) selection


@Lroy Yeah, all thanks to some 'Midnight Multiball Madness!'

I managed to go from 9'000'000 to around 21'000'000 on my final ball - then triggered multiball - and my score just went through the roof! ..couldn't believe my eyes! Haha!

The first 4 real-life pinball tables from the new Williams-Bally licensing deal dropped today in Pinball FX3! I highly recommend buying them. Everyone gets Fish Tales for free, and you can spend $9.99 to buy the other 3 tables (The Getaway: High Speed 2, Medieval Madness, and Junk Yard). I played a lot of the beta on Steam, and I dipped my toes in these tables on Switch this afternoon. All feel & look better than they ever did in The Pinball Arcade, and the new physics engine that Zen Studios put together for these tables feels more true to real life than TPA too!

And BTW, feel free to friend me on Switch (friend code SW-2082-1735-2236). Always love seeing more people in my leaderboards!

There's a nice global sale going on! Grabbed the Aliens pack (aprox 3 euro) and the Core pack (aprox 2.20 euro) from the MX eShop myself

Thanks for the heads up! Some real great deals on US eShop too. Sad that not all of the packs are on sale, but at least there were 3 packs on sale that I didn’t already own (Core Collection, AvP, and Jurassic Park).

Heads up for at least the US eShop! Zen added almost all o the tables/collections to their sale! I was able to buy all of the remaining tables I was missing, except for only Walking Dead, as they don’t have that on sale for some reason. If you want any tables, go check out the eShop! I think most of the sales percentages are between 40% - 60% off.

Thanks for the heads up... thanks to this sales, I've pretty much bought almost all the Tables except for the William's table.

I don't know if they'll ever go on sales or not since they didn't when their license expire for the Pinball Arcade and I bought 2-3 seasons thinking they weren't going to be seen again so I'm not going to bother for a LONG while with them since I've got 10-15 or so new tables to master for now.

You’ll probably have to wait a year for the Williams tables to be on sale but I’m guessing they will. Pinball Arcade use to have sales on their tables on Steam and te consoles. They just weren’t allowed to put the williams stuff on sale once te contract ended.

I was a huge fan of Pinball Arcade on tablet and phone. They don't seem to be as good on councils. Pinball FX 3 has been great so far...I didn't like the original one on PC. My delema is do I want to rebuy all the tables I owned from pinball arcade to own them on the Switch using pinball fx? Of the ones offered my faves are Junk Yard. Theater of Magic, Attack from Mars and safe cracker . Can anyone comment on how they compare here to what they were on mobile devices? I guess if I get a pack it would probably be Williams 3. I own the free tables Fish Tales, Adventure Land, Son of Zeus & Sorcerer's Lair and I like them. I bought Universal Classics and Like back to the Future, but don't love E.T. or Jaws...despite liking the movies. What is you opinion of best tables to buy? Switch friend code is SW-6943-9725-1491
