Item description

Up for sale is a very rare Gottlieb Nudge-It (less than 60 ever produced). This all-original example has a super nice cabinet and coin door and all around in great condition. Nudge-It features a real silk screened backglass instead of the common translites Gottlieb/Premier were using at the time, and is one of the very first games to ever feature an optic sensor. It's a very fun game that's all about the skill shot, and features three unique game options. Most people think the large stop button located on the lockdown bar doesn't work, but it actually does on one of the games! (It's an option).
This game has been shopped and working perfectly. The blue digital displays are very sharp and and all the boards are clean. This Nudge-It also has its original working ticket dispenser, I just have it unplugged. (It's a simple plug which is the same for the large bell and knocker located in the cabinet, which can be easily disconnected if desired)
If you're looking for a Gottlieb Nudge-It, you wont find many nicer all original examples out there than this, especially with less than 60 units ever produced. Let me know if you have anymore questions or would like more pictures. I'm willing to drive the machine for a fee, just let me know where you're located and could also potentially meet halfway. I prefer not to ship, but will do so if the buyer arranges for the machine to be picked up, but I'd rather this machine be picked up here. Thank you.

I find it interesting that Nudge-it machines use different color metal plunger ball guide/skill-shot assemblies, I assume just parts they had at the factory from older games. Whatever those are called, this example is black with red/blue, maybe from a Gottlieb ROCK?

This is the part I was talking about, these vari in color on different Nudge-It games...

If you have a Nudge-It, post some pics of this metal piece, I'd like to see what others Gottlieb used from the factory at the time!

If you can manage to find a buyer shoot me a pm. I have a buddy with one folded up under his stairs. Offers he has had has been 300ish so they could steal the boards for other games.

Wow! With so few of these ever made, crazy to think he's only getting those kind of low offers? Just hard to put a price on these, as I've seen them sell well over my asking price. This example is very nice and works perfectly. Would hate to think someone would want to part this rarity out. The historical significance to Nudge-It is it may very well be the first Gottlieb game to ever use an optic sensor and the very last Gottlieb to use a real screened backglass.

Rare does not always equal fun.

Rarity does not make it valuable. Historical significance does not mean a whole lot in this hobby.

Look at my collection history. Have owned plenty of low production pieces. Sometimes it ads value. Sometimes it hurts the value. Sometimes it means nothing.

Redemption games which is what this is, are not desirable. Ticket tac toe, is worth what a wpc 95 boardset is worth. Dinosaur eggs? Working pulls a couple hundred bucks. Punchy the clown is a pin and the novelty of the size push it to the 2k mark, but even then hard pressed to find a buyer. The small mario pin has gone up, but that is driven by the theme.

Nudge it, bell ringer, not worth jack. Its not a pin. Its not fun. I wish you well. I wish it was worth money. I wouldn't buy it, but my buddy could sell it for more than parts. Instead it gathers dust under his stairs because he doesn't want to give it away and doesn't want to sell it to be parted out.

Yeah I agree that not all rare games are super valuable, but it’s still a fun game and still a pinball machine, even though it doesn’t have flippers. I like the three different games featured as each are very different. Cool game if you’re into Gottlieb’s and like skill shots, same with bell ringer.

If you like it, keep it!

Lol he doesn’t like it, just wants it gone, I love reading his used car salesman approach to try and sell this thing, It makes me wanna start a “go fund me” Page for this sale.

Actually I do like this game, just don’t have the room. Sometimes games in your collection must go to make room for others. But if it doesn’t sell, no biggie. I listed an original Fireball on here at the same time as Nudge-It and it’s already sold, delivering it Thursday.

I wouldn’t fire sale this piece. It probably needs to end up in a museum somewhere. I don’t think the asking price is incorrect.

Aren't most museum pieces either donated or on loan for a set period of time?

Man, if you can get a museum full of pins donated, more power to you!

Perhaps he might have better luck trading them for something else on hand?

Would likely take a long time to find the right buyer, but as mentioned won’t hurt sitting in your collection in the meantime

For the record, my Nudge-It has the same colors there as yours.

this thing looks super cool! but i'm in the minority of people who like redemption's, pitch n bats, and other quirky games that wouldn't be considered traditional pinball.
