Good luck with it wayner!
To me personally there is not something more simple, special, and fun (combined) than a Gottlieb King Pin. It was one of the first wedgeheads I had ever played and learned (in MINT condition at my friend Joe Riccio's house) and those although my heart learned to lay with the late 60's wedgeheads primarily, I still find something very special about those wonderful drop target rulesets from the 70's, that one especially. King Pin and Jacks Open are on the top of my list as the most inventive and fun drop target rulesets, and thankfully my friend has both in beautiful condition.
(I've told this story here before) Ironically enough he is the husband of my mom's best friend from her youth, I went over to visit them with her AFTER I had already started in the pinball hobby and his wife made note of the pinball machines in the basement and I got very excited. At that point I had owned a $300 Chicago Coin Showtime (probably the worst game, haha) and I was still only mostly seeking solid-state games and was convinced all EM games were not worth much, when he told me how he paid four figures for some of his game I remember thinking "wow, this poor guy overpaid, aren't they all $300 when they're this old even though they're fun?" - and by the end of the night I was hooked. I remember even that night King Pin was my favorite out of 8 or so mint wedgeheads, some of the nicest I have ever seen.
Going off point further, funnily enough turns out although he is not a Pinsider he had been good friends with Vic & others for years and he had talked about us visiting his friend who had machines for weeks, and finally the week before we were set to go he finally said "my friend Vic" and surprised I said "Vic Camp?" and we both had a very funny mutual confused/shocked moment of "Oh, you know him?" - I had already seen Vic's YouTube video of his wonderful collection and seen him around on Pinside and once I heard it was him we are going to see I was very very excited. We both had a great time - that was well over a year or two ago now. One of these days I will have to make it back again.
Since then I am grateful to have found friendship with Vic and people like JR as well as welcoming them to my own collection. Thankfully I have been back to my friend Joe's collection many times (only 5-10 minutes away or so, very local in our lovely little town) and take great joy in a good game of King Pin and earning those specials. Earning those little knocks is what the EM hobby is all about and what made me hooked. One day I hope to own a nice one as one of my "holy grails". I absolutely love the artwork as well.
I also found that the add-a-ball version, Gottlieb's "Pin-Up", also is definitely a lot of fun - I have played it at the Silverball Museum. The same ruleset for earning balls translates across very well.
