Great game and nicely priced. GLWTS!

#3 1 year ago

Great Seller too! His machines are always immaculate. If I didn't already just buy 4 pins I would jump on buying it.

#4 1 year ago

One of the best to buy/trade from. Hope he doesn’t regret this sale when he plays Deadpool!

All good. Appreciate the compliments. Since Alice Cooper is delayed I have a spot where I do not need to move a game just yet, but it will happen soon. I'm still selling as I like Houdini, but don't love it. I guess I'm not that good to make the tight shots.

It takes some tweaking to get really right. The game is SUPER sensitive to being level, and you have to adjust the targets to give you the optimum clearance. The game is a bit rough around the edges still, but either way you’ll like Deadpool for sure! Hope you get your ACNC eventually!

Anyway team, buy with confidence, this is the optimum situation, easy rollout of the game, great guy, easy to find. BWC

Lowered my price to 6500. Honestly, I've had some offers at 6300. First one at 6400 would take it.

GLWS!

#11 1 year ago

Whoever gets this game will be very pleased; game looks brand new and has a bunch of mods as well; killer deal

#12 1 year ago

Anyone for 6400?

#14 1 year ago

Good guy to deal with GLWTS.

#15 1 year ago

Still available. A few interested, but nothing done yet.

I believe 6400 with these upgrades will be the cheapest Houdini sale yet.

I'm in York and pickup at the York show is possible.

And he sold it right away. That game did not have the upgrades. Seems like no one wants Houdini.

#18 1 year ago

I sold mine for 6,500 with similar upgrades. GLWTS!

Killer deal here for someone

Don’t pay attention to him, he’s a total troll.

This sale is Magical bump!

#23 1 year ago

Spend-a-little-time-adjusting-the-game-and-it-will-Knock-you-out bump!

Raise the left side a hair (1-2 turns each leg),
raise the left flipper coil power by 1,
drop the flippers towards the apron about 1/8”,
lower the scoop coil power by 1 or 2,
lower the auto fire power by 1,
and you’re in business

Yes it’s a dumb number of things you have to do to a NIB game but once you’ve got it dialed in, it’s a fun, HARD game. Default settings are way way too hard too

If it doesn't sell this weekend, I may just keep it and sell something else.

Sell me your DW!

#26 1 year ago

That's a 5k game though. It's super nice. Best one I've ever seen. I traded my original DW for this one that's almost perfect and added a color dmd.

Nice! When did you trade it out? I know I played one of yours, it was in good condition

#28 1 year ago

I think 6 months ago. The newer one is near mint. Has the switch that requires the glass to be on.

That’s original to the game, before they came up with the coin door interlock. Good for you! 5k is too much for me, but I’ll keep looking

Well it's close to 5k. Has Colordmd.

It's really 4800, but I doubt that changes anything. That's what my total cost on it is.

I lowered Houdini to 6300. If it doesn't sell I have a family guy with clear coated PF, yellow trim, and colordmd. It's super nice and I'll list that for 5500. I have a nice Congo with colordmd at 4400, and a super nice Austin Powers with a clear coated nos PF 3500.

Good guy bump

Lol same here but you were in line first. Owned DW 3 times and need to bring it back home.

#37 1 year ago

Doctor Who bump! just installed my upgraded power supply in Houdini and got the flippers dialed in. This game is smokin' now!

#38 1 year ago

His dr who is easily worth 5k plus but is shows it’s flawless

#39 1 year ago

Just tested the upgraded Houdini power supply. absolutely PERFECT. Game needs some very fine tweaking out of the box, but it is a keeper for sure. power supply eliminates all low power issues with catapult, coils, magnets, etc.

Part of the deal with a new manufacturer

I get that and respect it just a tough pill to swallow for me knowing this was wrong and Everyone knew it yet now everyone is Excited that they are willing to Sell a "Mod" to make it work correctly now? And the second "Mod" kit was discussed for sale to also fix the dropping flippers which Everyone said does not happen and it must be your house or power, yet now everyone is lined up to buy "mods" to make the game work as it should have? It was a good game just not what I expected. New company or not, $7,000 is a lot of money so I hoped it at least worked as sold.

The power mod comes with $129 credit. Not all 500 plus customers have had issues either and need the mods so “lining up” is a bit much. It’s a great game and I think their products will only get better.

$150 credit. I think that was a phenomenal response -on top of - the awesome support they already provide. I wonder if Josh K and Barry are sick of Houdini, but I sure as hell appreciate their continued hard work

A credit towards another game I don't want or accessories I did not Need? Just seems like offering to swap out the Correct power supply would have been a slightly more stand up support as it Does make the game work as sold? Sorry I still don't see this as a mod? I ended up Buying the transformer for the guy I sold the game to as he felt slighted by the deal. All good I guess.

Sincere apology to the OP. When replying from my cell I didn’t realize this was a FS thread. Completely dink thing to do sorry. With the new power supply and this great price buyer is going to have a fun game at a great price.

We went to the York Show this weekend & purchased a Houdini. I had the funds for any machine on the floor, so my wife & I took the plunge & opted for Houdini. Before making the decision I did a lot of research/reading here on Pinside & this is a title that seems to have either a love it or hate it opinion. But after playing this machine for virtually all weekend, I can absolutely state that we made the right decision. Houdini has everything that defines an A+ title ~ playfield layout, deep rule set, incredible theme, beautiful art, fantastic lightshow, alluring callouts, jaw dropping catapult, & very unique in every category. AP designed & produced a masterpiece that is an original & fresh depiction that separates itself from the rest of the pinball manufactures.
I'd wish you well in your pursuit of the perfect machine, but you really need not to look no further. For $63 & all of the modifications this is a steal of a deal! Someone buy this machine!
