    I always want to ask these people to define RARE. I saw a RARE Zizzle on ebay today and could only shake my head at it.

    Don't think they understand their pricing. Why would someone pay 4.5k on a machine that needs cleaning,servicing,and who knows how many things replaced. It's too bad because this is near me and this is actually a pinball I'm looking for.

    Don't you guys know that all pinball machines are quite rare!!!!
    I swear, almost every pinball listing I read on craigslist, offerup, or ebay has rare in it. I myself don't even really consider a run of 1k that rare, because give it a month or two and you'll find one bouncing around trying to be offloaded.

    Always cracks me up seeing that on Ebay, along with 5 other examples.

    I offered $500. He declined my offer

    #6711 21 days ago

    Every offer for a "rare" pin ad shoud have the production run included.

    Good morning, my offer for the 14,535 units made rare Fish Tales you have up for sale is $2500.

    Yeah... Rare... Only around 7,000 produced... Very rare indeed... A good game... And maybe for around 700-1200 dollars I'd consider buying one. I don't like the theme, but I really like how it shoots. Again... These people are like its pinball it must be rare.

    Very rare must be the new "barn find" need to start using that in my ads.

    I sold my VERY NICE Bow and Arrow last year for $700 and considered that top dollar.

    This is a rare Bow and Arrow!

    Took me a second to realize it was a solid state... Very nice...
    DO you know how the rules differ? If they do indeed differ... Sometimes the solid states had a slightly deeper ruleset. Just curious is all.

    #6720 18 days ago

    I've never owned or played a EM B&A, so I can't say for sure. However I have had a lot of people play this one and no one has ever mentioned any difference rules wise. I also have an EM Blackjack and the rules are identical as the solid state. 22 solid state B&A were made, and Bally dismantled 11 of them to use as spare parts for the remaining 11. I can account for about 7 survivors. It's a great game and even though a prototype it's equally as robust as any later solid state Bally to follow. I personally think it's one of the fastest playing games in my collection.

    Yeah, as I said above I like Bow and Arrow. Fun game. Love the spinners on it. Very good layout, shoots really good. What more do you need in a pinball machine.

    Hey, you can’t say this guy isn’t specific on what he is willing to trade for

    Finally that Escalade 3rd row seat I’ve been saving is going to pay out proper

    #6725 14 days ago

    Well it’s not Craigslist exactly but hopefully it fits they category. Seems a bit high for an em that is not working????

    but the condition is rated as Fair...
    Jeez... If a nonworking pinball can be rated as fair... Then I'd hate to know what acceptable would be listed as in this sellers opinion.

    #6727 13 days ago

    on facebook in Detroit

    Chicago Coins Casino $300 was 400 started at 1000

    fully functional...needs a bumper fixed, small repair to bottom needed ... no key to coin box...
    left in old house I purchased....wife wants it gone.

    Seriously you got it for FREE and the cabinet is blown out, if it was worth moving the previous owner would have taken it with them.

    #6728 13 days ago

    Just a little fix to the cabinet

    Never seen that title for sale before and from what we can see in the picture looks ok, in the ballpark at any rate.

    At that price, does it come with a Playmate?

    I assumed this one would be a woodrail.
    A soft woodrail at that.

    Two can play that game pal!

    Do it. I will offer up to 4700

    The good deals never end in the northwest!

    He knows it’s “one of the very first computers made” and that “other similar models I have seen listed for $10,000 plus”!

    By similar $10,000 models I’m guessing he meant a brand new stern LE machine???
    I’d love to sell this guy a Geo Metro for $50,000 cause ya know similar model Mercedes Benz go for $100,000 plus!

    Another feature not mentioned is it has an amazing ability to be out of focus!

    #6739 10 days ago

    You'd think for 7k he'd at least supply the balls... Cos I mean at that price he really should have balls to spare, considering the pair he has for thinking that machine of his will ship for that price.

    Hey look, it works alrite? It doesn't have any balls and it needs a power cord, but it's the first ever computer and random number generator!!!

    This guy seems like a kook.

    Not really,... but the Electronic Bow & Arrow does play very fast.
    "slightly deeper ruleset." ... coin options? / test features ?/ replay level?.

    Fast is good... I always liked the way the EM one plays. I got to play it 2 different times at 2 different expos. Both machines were in good shape. I would love one day to have a whole row of just em machines... But, don't have the room... And with some of these ebay and craigslist prices, definitely not at those prices!!!!!

    Now divide that price by 5 and maybe it will be a bit more reasonable.

    Brand new glass? I’ll go with the one posted earlier with original glass. Because 40 years of scratches is more authentic-like.
