Abra Ca Dabra has cool art a great ruleset - makes you come back for "one more". C-37 is a looker and a good player. Atlantis probably doesn't fit your theme you're after but it has a great ruleset too..... 2001 and Dimension aren't bad either.

Quoted from audihere:

Sorry about that.
Target Alpha is a pretty good game. But, like Rob mentioned, I too really like the traditional lines of the wedgehead cabinets. 1 player is cool. The only other EM I'd like to have is a Diamond Jack. Bank-a-Ball is a replay game, and Diamond Jack is an Add-a-Ball (playing for extra balls instead of credits).
Good luck with your search! Maybe you can bring it to League when it's all ready.

Diamond Jack is the aab of King of Diamonds (replay)
Flipper Pool is the aab of Bank-a-Ball (replay)

All good games there

Playing a badly shopped/restored em will sour a person. There's always a few of those every year at Pinball Expo in Chicago. Playing one that is shopped/restored correctly and dialed in will get peoples attention and make them want one.

Abra Ca Dabra would be a great choice. Love the artwork and if I remember its a pretty darn fun player.

I can vouch for that

Quoted from Aurich:

Shipping people picked up my game today, now I gotta make room for it!

It could easily read "Just got my Abra Ca Dabra set up and playing and now I have to make more room for some more em's I want to buy" deja vu maybe?

Quoted from Aurich:

Well the plan is to make room for two ...
I have a Jurassic Park that I'm holding for a friend since he lost the space for it, but I'll probably help him sell it shortly, and that would free up a slot too. Past that I'd have to start selling solid states, and I'm not ready to say I'm that smitten yet. See how it goes.

Two means doubling your em's - yeah!

Quoted from presqueisle:

I have the aab of Abra, Team One. Different art and some added features.
Question...I see a lot of ems set with flippers at an angle. I always put mine parralel with the lower wire guides. What's correct?

These flippers look correct - the flipper should be in line with the lane wire guide.

Here's mine.

This flipper is too low because you used the lower wire guide as a reference. I use the lane wire guide as my reference.

Congrats Aurich - is that my old backglass in there where I touched up the wizard? I know you said you were getting a repro.

I keep hearing how good Team One's playability is but honestly Abra is one of my favorites for game play. I guess I need to play a Team One.
