Should sell quick at that price. Great game, I miss mine.
Somebody has to repro the backglass

It is a cool pin! I like the rules and the royal flush w/ bonus opportunity.

#5 3 years ago

Highly addictive pin!! It definitely has the "Just one more game" vibe going for it. I play this weekly at league without the wireform beneath the right flippers(definitely increases difficulty). Wish you were closer. GLWS

I watched the PAPA tutorial and it did not have the wire form either... I assume it came from factory with wire form and then just removed?

#7 3 years ago

Yes, in the manual it has them shown as being there.

If you're finding it too easy and that's why you're selling it, pulling that bar should change things. Much more fun that way.

#9 3 years ago

I played this title at Pinball PA yesterday and must've played 10 games on it. What an addictive title and some pretty cool art/backglass!

Just a space issue... If it were up to me I would never sell a pin...

#11 3 years ago

Good price and one of my favorite art packages

#12 3 years ago

i dont' think that's suppose to be a wireform, but just a antibangback wire in the playfield. Don't think it is suppose to be up high enough to stop the ball from giving you the scissors.

#13 3 years ago

I'm a big fan of alien poker art as well!

I'll look again and see if it can be pushed in....

Correct. It's a biff bar, not a ball guide...

Wish you were going to Allentown.

It's a ball guide, meant to keep the ball from being lost between the flippers. Check out the player's view picture in the flyer.

Barely visible here but clearly visible if you have the flyer in your hand: http://ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=48&picno=4433&zoom=1

Hmm..every example I've played (4 or 5 probably) either had it removed or pushed down like a biff bar! Well, to each their own of course! The flyer clearly shows it as a ball guide. I personally like it better when it's removed.

#34 3 years ago

Yes it changes game play big time if you remove the guide, it is the only way to play it if you are setting it up for tournament play.

#35 3 years ago

.....and bump for a great game.

#36 3 years ago

Well no that this is the most popular thread on pinside... I have a question.. check out the front and back of the backglass...Someone must have sealed it then put a painted translucent white??? If you see front of backglass you can see some white spiderwebs.... Whatever was done by someone else I think it turned out fantastic... alot better than backglasses with cracking that you can see light bulbs.. What does everyone think?

either paint or vinyl to lock in the damage.

#40 3 years ago

Congrats on the sale. Love to see all the support come out for a pin I spent a LOT of time playing in high school. Wish I could find one (much) farther south!

#41 3 years ago

Thanks and good luck finding one

#42 3 years ago

Find the art and I'll have a backglass (plexi) made...

#43 3 years ago

Here's what mine looked like before I sold it

I paid $700 for mine with an absolutely perfect Playfield. Too bad the backglass is scratched up. Underrated game with very addictive gameplay. Someone will be getting a steal here.

#45 3 years ago

Agree $700 is a steal for this game.

And I let him have it for cheaper than that...

You know how it goes. When your looking for one, you can't find one that's not priced over the ceiling. And when you want to sell one, no one wants to give you what the games worth. But i'm sure you got to play the heck out of it anyhow.
