Item description

I've owned this game for several years and it has been a rock-solid performer.
Overall a nice player's game.
I would say the playfield is a 7/10 and the cabinet is an 8/10.
Game is located in zip code 44067.
I would prefer local pickup.

The good:
Game is working 100% with no known issues.
It plays super fast!
All ground modifications have been done.
Special "Free-Play" game rom is installed.
All boards are clean with no hacks.
Some LEDs tastefully added.
Pop bumper boards have been updated.
Playfield window recently removed and leveled.
Backglass is beautiful.
Spinner motor works great.

The bad:
Wear around the pop bumpers on the upper playfield.
One cracked plastic.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM, call or text me.

Enticing...

Quoted from mot:

Enticing...

Dont you have a house to buy or something.

#4 4 years ago

I bought the house, but I haven't moved any pinball machines in yet. A smart person would refinish the hardwood floors before moving in a bunch of giant 300 lb games, but resisting the urge is a daily struggle.

And of course, there are suddenly a bunch of games I want to buy!

And of course, as soon as I buy one, a game I want even more will quickly become available!

Don't resist. No one can escape the Black Hole!

I have one of those too. How about a package deal?

#10 4 years ago

Do I have anything that interests you? Creature and White Water are not on the table, but anything else could be... Could be a game + cash or more than one...

Not at the moment. WH2O is on my wish list and I don't blame you for wanting to keep it.

#12 4 years ago

This seems like a really good deal, surprised you still have it.

#13 4 years ago

If the commander would let me use the dinning room for pinball overflow, I would never be selling it

#14 4 years ago

Can you bring it to my house in utah?

#15 4 years ago
Quoted from donjagra:

Just pick it up when you deliver me your Time Machine.

#16 4 years ago

Game is still available.
Have had some trade offers but really need to sell this one outright to free up some space.

#17 4 years ago
Quoted from donjagra:

Can you bring it to my house in utah?

Can you bring it to my house in Australia?

#18 4 years ago
Quoted from wiredoug:

Can you bring it to my house in Australia?

That would be $1819.28 AUD.
Throw in freight and round trip airfare and I will even help you set it up.

#19 4 years ago

bargain, but the deals off cos I reckon you'll drink all my beer then refuse to go home

happy selling .. hope the bump helped

#21 4 years ago

who dares enter the black hole??? No love for this title or what?

#22 4 years ago

If it was closer, it would be gone. Totally on the lookout for this title.

#23 4 years ago

it's a great game. criminally underrated and underpriced. no idea why Haunted House ranks higher when it has no speech, no multiball, inferior art, and a less interesting playfield layout.

Black Hole is probably the hardest game in all of Pinball to achieve multiball, and it's a uniquely disorienting multiball mode too. tracking balls across 2 different playfields simultaneously (one of which is angled away from you) is super frenetic!

#24 4 years ago

OK Pezpunk, I think you've just talked me into keeping it
Multiball is very hard to obtain and extremely satisfying when it's accomplished.
In multiplayer games it is a little bit easier since you can steal the locked ball on the lower playfield.
It's also a very beautiful game to look at. Spinning disc moving in the opposite direction of the lights in the backbox, very mesmerizing (especially after a few drinks).
When I have company over, this game seems to draw more interest than any other game in my collection.
If I didn't need the room, I would not be selling it.

Great job Pezpunk, another satisfied customer!

I was only kidding.
It's still for sale.

#28 4 years ago

Price reduced.
This game is still in need of a good home.

#29 4 years ago

Bump. Would love to grab this. Someone head to MD. BH is a game that can be scary to own because each time I turn it on I prayed it booted. This one looks solid and looks very reliable. Very good deal.

#30 4 years ago

I would love to get this title. Ohio is a hike for me.

Yes this game boots perfectly everytime. Since the ground mods it has been as reliable as any other game in my collection.

#32 4 years ago

If I could get this game to MD I would take it....pm sent

I owned a BH with the ground mods for a few years and it played flawless. GLWTS!

#34 4 years ago

This sell yet?

#35 4 years ago

Game is sold and headed up North.
