I have an opportunity to pick up a Cow Poke that's in really nice shape for around $750. I really want to add an EM to my small collection. I like the backbox animation and the roto-targets.

I have very little experience with EMs, so wondering what to look for and also thoughts about Cow Poke from a 'fun factor' standpoint.

Cowpoke is an awesome game...if you like old style pinball enough.
Some folks can't deal with the 2" flippers.
What to look for...
...Backglass condition
...plastics, which have been repro'd by Pinball Rescue down under

That's about it others than the normal stuff.

Good Luck! I love my Cowpoke.

Awesome pin, would never sell mine. Simple but very addictive and fun rule set, that is hard to achieve. Always keeps you coming back.

$750 is a great price. Even if you don't like it, it would be easy to move on.

Thanks for the input guys. It will sure be different playing a pin with 2" flippers.

I sold my Cow Poke this year. I had it for about 5 years and enjoyed it. Pretty good player, but I think it's the charm of the art and animation that really make the game special. I'd buy another one if it came along at $750.
