Just picked up a nice Card Whiz from a great local guy, fanuminski. Works great and a great challenge. Been playing Royal Flush Deluxe recently and was happy to have this be my first EM. This might be the start a bad addiction.

congrats, that looks like it's in great shape!

It's the start of a beautiful addiction!

Nice pickup.

One of the classics obviously along with Royal Flush. When you buy a classic pin you can't help but get addicted. It looks like its in great shape, congrats and there are some fantastic EMs out there.

nice classic machine. pbr have all the plastics and targets and stuff.
one thing i didnt realise at first with mine - the "pink" areas are faded purple - not meant to be pink.

Have fun!

I think in the last few month I have seen more and more people getting their first EM
I don't know if I should be happy or sad....... more people wanting EMs means it will be harder for me to find deals BUT then again I like to see people saving them from being parted out.
You got a good one for your first, believe me it will NOT be your last.

Kind of my thoughts. Great that people finding out how addictive some of these games are but it is getting harder to find certain games now - C37, Atlantis, Jacks Open, Abra ca Dabra and so on.

Enjoy the game - if you like it, so many other great ones to be had and cheap compared to latest NIB!

Shapeshifter. the only silver lining on my part is that I have or had most of the ones I really wanted, only a few that I just haven't found yet

Nice, nice, nice! Welcome to the EM club. This will not be your last.

#13 6 years ago

Congrats!

What you still looking for? Sometimes I fear talking up the games I want as one comes up for sale and it's gone in a flash!

Card Whiz was my first EM as well. I regret selling it to this day. Would love to score another one or a Royal Flush.

Have fun playing this righteous pin!

Congrats!
Mike is a good guy. Sold me my El Dorado.

I have Royal Flush (the 4 player version) and Royal Flush Deluxe. Good layout makes for a fun game.

#18 6 years ago

Great game. On my wish list.

#19 6 years ago

I have one folded up in my garage awaiting a shop job....Guess I should get to it

#20 6 years ago

Very nice game. It is a game I plan to get at some point.

1 week later

Nice game! And yes you are probably "hooked". About 8 weeks ago my wife bought a Royal Flush that I didn't want anything to do with. Well, 8 weeks later I now own in addition to the Royal Flush a Four Million BC, F-14 Tomcat and a Barracora. I am completely hooked on repairing them mechanically, electrically and cosmetically! Welcome to the club!

Cool! I have some spinner art for you if you are interested. Came from another pinsider.

#25 6 years ago
