Hey everyone I am interested to hear what your favourite System 1 Gottlieb pin is and why. I have just started collecting pins and currently have Totem and Solar Ride. What would be your next addition if you were to buy another System 1? I am leaning towards Sinbad and Close Encounters

Joker Poker and Countdown are high on my list.

#3 43 days ago

Sinbad and Count-down are 2 of the best in my opinion.

#4 43 days ago

Sinbad, is the best

A few others...

CE3K , I like it, others dont

more games

Hulk, Looks good, but looks aint everything

You don’t even have the top 3 on the list?

My top choice is Asteroid Annie

Sinbad and Roller Disco are my 2 favorites (really).
Countdown, Joker Poker and Torch are pretty fun too.

Avoid Genie (looks great--yet is a rather dull player, and is often overpriced).

1-Joker Poker.
2- Count Down
3- Pinball Pool
If you haven't already been to Clay's system one repair site, here it is. Read it completely and as Clay's says " REPIN the CONNECTORS" it is a must to do job.

Tough call, but for me it's a toss up between Asteroid Annie and the Aliens and Genie.

System 1's are all fun and a underrated series IMO . I have never seen or played AA so will kick her out of bed.

Thanks for all the responses! I have played Pinball Pool and Buck Rogers briefly a few weeks ago. Sinbad definitely seems higher on the list of System 1’s to get. Does anyone have a go-to ‘angle’ for the slope of the machine? I’m adjusting the leg supports to see how the games play. Solar Ride is all over the map. Kick out holes go straight down the toilet at certain heights.

5 1/2 degrees is my preference

#15 43 days ago

Thanks plowpusher I will try 5 1/2 degrees next

Easily Joker Poker. It’s simple yet so fun to play. Plus, it comes up over and over as a great pin.

Sinbad & JP.
