Once again, Herg has proven to be my pinball rudder. He hates it when I give him public recognition for something!

About to leave to pick up a Royal Flush that looks to be in very good condition but is in need of some accupunture and a good shiatsu.

RF was the second game I ever bought back in the mid 90s when I purged my EMs (all two to them!) to start into DMDs.

Things come full circle often....

Great pin!

Was working on one the other day.

I recently just purchased one.

#4 7 years ago

It's on my wish list.

On my list as well (or Card Whiz). Great game. Congrats!

Well, almost a Royal Flush Imploding!

BG is almost perfect. Cabinet about average overall, not hateful, decent. Playfield-well.... Not the keeper I was hoping for, but worth getting definitely for the backglass and maybe the cabinet. If I can find another one with a good playfield, I would have a decent game.

Probably will just fix it up as a project so it plays 100% and sell it for what I have into.

I missed it on the pictures, but a previous owner installed a little steel post between the flippers and too high high at that, so the ball almost cannot drain. Oy!

.....and the problem is?????

Funny, the one I was working on had a hole for a post between the flippers, too.

Pretty sure it didn't come from the factory that way...

If its cheap in price for this one purchase it ,then just wait for a good playfield to come along as it sounds like the backglass is in good shape.

Remember they made a lot of these.

I've had two and know where there is another I might be able to get. Interesting thing with both of mine - must have had the same operator. See pics

What are the odds of getting two RF's from the same op?

I've had 4 or 5 of these and it seems like every one has loose, missing, or wrong inserts. The foam marks on the backglass is the other. Lots of mechanical issues to fix too.
