    Quoted from Mitch:

    So your saying this isnt true then?

    It's 2,822 miles away; I just posted I paid more for the one I currently have so why would I think $1500 is too much?

    Quoted from leckmeck:

    What’s with the peanut gallery act? You disagree with the market. We get it.

    I agree.

    Quoted from John_I:

    It's probably my least favorite layout from that era of Gottlieb. The geometry and shots make no sense. Might be collectable, but in my opinion a dud when it comes to game play.

    I get why people say this, as there aren't many shots - probably only 2 that I go for.

    That said, it never gets old once you have joker lit and the chance to have every roll over at 5000, and then to go for 200000 plus.

    Add the fact it has DC and it plays fast and snappy.

    I have had tons of great em's but this one is simple but fun

    Doubt I would ever sell mine.

    People dislike it because it's too hard and thier feelings get hurt...

    I dislike it as its boring with nothing to shoot at.
    Might as well buy a pachinko machine.

    ? The middle top shot is backhandable to get in that hole. The one on the mid right can be shot directly, though not with 100% success. Everything else can be plunged, or you shoot back up to the top basically the same as backhanding the middle hole, just to the side of it, and do some nudging.

    Which of these, exactly, is better than Neptune? Joker Poker and MAYBE Gemini....but good luck finding Gemini, even harder to find than Nep/HtD

    It's a better player than Strange World for example.

    How you can be bored trying to roll it, I'll never know, but we like and dislike what we like and dislike!

    To each his own. Most if not all of them have a better layout and shoot better than Neptune. I love Sinbad. When I said "era" I really meant 70s EMs including the ones on your list and games like Quick Draw, Target Alpha, Jack in the Box, C37, Atlantis, and on and on.

    To me this game has zero draw except the rarity. Once again; to each his own.

    Quoted from swampwiz:

    There's a guy advertising his @ Mr. Pinball for this amount. I think I might be enticed to part with mine for that price!

    Hello Swapwiz, I believe that is my game you are referencing. I must admit I had a go of it trying to price this game. I reached out to many pin heads and have gotten a broad range of answers, anywhere from its worthless to 5K of course depending on condition and what not. I recently sold my Strange World to a collector in Australia for 4K. Apparently in Australia EMs are going for good money...can't confirm this but thats what he told me. He also seemed to think my HTD was worth 5K....I told him I don't know about that and EMs have taken a huge hit on prices here in the states. I believe another pinsider replied on this thread "a game is only worth what an individual is willing to spend on it" I kind of agree with that statement. I mean, as a seller of course you would like to get as much as you can for any particular item and as a buyer you are also trying to get the most reasonable price as well.

    I have since dropped my price on pinside to $2800 OBO

    Quoted from Mitch:

    Why is this still for sale then?
    It's always the same story owners price pumping their games

    It sold in like a day. I think that pretty much shows the game was priced to move and certainly moved quickly. If it was closer to me I certainly would have went to buy it because it was a great price for what looked to be a good machine. Like how you try and puff up your chest to prove your point but considering the pin moved quickly I think it more proved our points that this game doesn't go up for that and if it does goodluck.

    Congrats to whoever got that deal.
