Whirlwind or The Party Zone?
« on: December 03, 2010, 12:48:28 pm »
Basically,  I have a Whirlwind I've had for about a year.  It's OK.  I just don't really get in to it much.  I actually prefer to play Xenon to it.... but it's still a good time for sure.  A local has offered a straight swap... his Bally The Party Zone in good condition for my Whirlwind in good condition.

Opinions?

PLay the other one, if you like it better, swap it.  You don't play WW much anyway

The fan works great... and in the summer it rocks... but in the winter it's colder than hell... almost to the point I turn it off... almost.

If you don't play WW much, I would say take a chance.  Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't PZ have a higher resale value?  If you don't like PZ you could sell/trade it and not lose money?

Well... the wife nixed this deal.

:(

I mentioned to her the deal and she goes "Oh great...  you're going to trade away the only damn game I play in there..."

... thereby killing the deal.  Oh well...

I played Whirlwind with my wife on our first date.  That trade would never have even been an option.
