    I'm a big fan of Krynskis many wedgehead designs for Gottlieb in the card themed games ( High Hand, Flip a card etc.).
    Perfect playfield designs and for the most part with amazing artwork.

    I've tried IPDB-searches, but I cant find anything by Williams or other makes that comes close to those addictive card themed games during Gottliebs
    wedgehead era.

    Is there any other make of a EM-game aside Gottlieb that I should check out that are comparable to Krynskis best work within that theme ?

    Thanks, I´ve got the search technique under control

    But I needed some input to the playing experience, which was provided fast and detailed - so I'm quite thankful for all suggestions above.

    Big Deal:Wow. Although I'm a little skeptical to that rebound rubber bank between the flippers, I think it looks quite modern for a -63 pin. The fact that it does have
    a reverse wedgehead AND backglass animation makes it even more interesting. Hard-to-find though, I suspect.

    Hi-Lo Ace; not too wild about the playfield design, although I REALLY like that kind of pop bumper placement behind that midfield stand up target. Beautiful slingshot plastics

    Lady Luck: a little weird looking PF, but I'm going to add this to the "check out"-list. Being no 5 on the Top 100-list is of course a good hint to the quality.

    Lucky Ace: does indeed have a interesting playfield configuration. On top of that this is actually one of Marches better artworks from that era. Glad to see that the guy had other qualities that just those strange "pointy people". Will definitely add this to my hunting list.

    Wild Card: Not a beautiful playfield, but the arrangement is interesting. The upper right lane looks like a real challenge. Real snappy bumper action on the upper PF. Thanks for the linked video Tuna_Delight.

    Quoted from MarkG:

    The dealer's score changes with each ball but isn't revealed until you drain so you're trying to get 21 or as close to it as you can without going over. At some points in the game it makes strategic sense to drain if you have 21 for example rather than keep playing and go bust.

    Thanks Mark. I really have to check this deck out. Interesting rule set.
