How much should I expect to pay for a Black Pyramid in pretty decent condition?.Thanks!.

#2 5 years ago

Just an opinion. If you do buy it, and ever want to get rid of it. You will have a very hard time finding a buyer. Granted, it would look nice next to my El Dorado City Of Gold. However, they don't ever sell in my area, even at $300-$500. The moving target is really the only fun component to the game. You could find more EM's with a far better gameplay for the same price. I would pass on BP unless it was about $200.

Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

El Dorado City Of Gold

not being able to sell it is no problem as it's a sure keeper .Wish I can find one for less than $500.Hoping for $200 or 150 but i'd pay $400 for one no problem.

Have you played a Black Pyramid yet? I guess, if you love it then totally go for it. If you have never played it, I would pass. I like the theme. It was the same attempt that El Dorado City Of Gold did. Mimic Indiana Jones, which I love.

Not sure where your located but there's one that I believe is Huo or close to it for sale in ma. Seller claims to have bought it in 87 which I believe is when it came out

I like black pyramid quite a bit. I know its basically two shots, but its still enjoyable to me. I think I would pay around 400-500 for one

It's not the best game, but has a pretty standard Bally rule set, which is always a plus in my mind.

In good shape, I'd guess it's a $500 game easy. If you can get it in the price range you're discussing, grab it.

Sold mine for 450 a few months back. Played 100%, no errors. Back glass was perfect, playfield had couple touch ups, and one side of cab had fade. Spelling black pyramid was fun but game seems lackluster to others of that time.

I love mine...we play it a lot and during family tournaments whenever there is a tie BP is the always the game of choice for the final tie breaker...its so bonus point driven you know if you don't have a good first ball your score will suck. Some people find it boring but mine is here to stay, waiting to find a nice playfield to swap in it.

A good tournament game, it's all about the bonus. Greg Freres backglass is great. $400-500 bones!

Sold mine for $500 last fall only to make room for new projects. Nice simple game. Loved it.

Sold a shopped mint one last year for $500 or $600 bucks.
