I really hope you give the pin to someone who would try to save it. The artwork is very well done and it's a beautiful game when lit. I have my EM Cleopatra sitting next to an Aztec. The Cleo artwork makes the Aztec artwork look absolutely cartoonish (love the Aztec table )
It's understood that it will cost more to repair it than the market will pay. I'm sure there is at least one person that wants that title. While there is some wear on the table it really isn't bad for this title. Mine was far worse.
Cleopatra is a loved by few and hated by many because it is a shooters game, and that's why it sells dirt cheap. This table demands you hit your shots and control the ball. And that's not easy to do because it's such a fast game on a simple playfield layout. Cleopatra will punish you like a slave building the pyramids! That's why I love this table, it's a tough challenge to get high scores consistently.
Two ways to light the extra ball, get all the roll overs or get the drops. For each roll over you get the drops are worth 1k. Get all five roll overs and score 5k per drop. Get everything and you light the special, and this is tough to do.
Also, getting all the drops opens the 5K sucker target in the center of the table. You can get high scores, but make the wrong shot and it's a center drain.
A shooters pin and not for the faint of heart. As a huge fan of this pin, please save her!
