Quoted from Electrocute:

Don't like the left flipper arrangement on Captain Fantastic. Didn't like it 40 years ago either.

Restored one remembering the gameplay more fondly than it actually is. WAY too easy IMO. Snoozefest.

Jack's Open anyone?

I saw that too. Looks nice I would like to have that game. What are your thoughts on the price?

Not bad. Not fully restored of course, but decent. Especially having the Repro glass. Maybe offer a thousand bucks?

Seems like a fair price for the condition. That's not an easy game to find in any condition.

#17157 4 months ago

Fairly priced deals around Balitmore:

Williams Lady Luck $300 looks nice

Royal Flush $400

Right now 1970’s drop target games are hot. 1200 with a reproduction backglass is fair. I always look at it like this, if I found a descent one in a basement odds are it’ll need a glass or a repaint. Glass is 275-295 and cabinet is a lot of labor and patience. If this game needs nothing, plug and play, 1200 is very reasonable . I got 1500 for my Lucky Hand, plug & play, new glass, real nice repainted cabinet .

#17159 3 months ago

Lucky Hand has a low production of 610 while Jacks Open has a much larger (almost 5 times) run. I still think that it is over priced compared with other card themed pins. IMO

This is a classic, but not an EM. Not sure where else to post, but I know a lot of people like Mata Hari.

You think they would take the time to clear it off and take some better pictures. The playfield condition is somewhat important when considering what to offer, no?

This would be the thread, but it fizzled out.

#17164 3 months ago

I'm on the fence on whether to go check out this one. What do you think?

allentown.craigslist.org link

#17165 3 months ago

I’m not a Williams guy but played Little Chief as a kid when it came out. Looks in very good condition and playfield should clean up very nice. Throw 350 on the glass and load it up.

Just made an offer below his asking price. Let’s see if I get a response. Cabinet looks nice.

The displays seem good from the new pics he posted. Seems to have potential at that price. Good luck! It's on the wrong side of the state for me.

Good luck. I'm not interested, but curious if you get it. I'd be curious on the price (if you PM me, I'll keep it confidential). I hope you get a good deal.

I'm on the hunt for a Supersonic to work on that is not totally trashed. People think their 'items' are worth too much many times.

This seller makes Ro-Go sound like a superstar. What are you waiting for?

Manufacturer: Bally
Game/Type: Ro Go / EM 4 Player
Month/Year: November 1973
Production: 3,075
Cost: $1300
Location: Concord / Pleasant Hill / Martinez (San Francisco), CA
Contact/Link: sfbay.craigslist.org link

Condition: "Ro Go Pinball Machine is presented as a cult science fiction and fantasy game with echoes of Xena: Warrior Princess!"

GREAT SUMMER GIFT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY - 4 PLAYER!

Here is my Ro Go Pinball Machine 1974.
Very nice condition with a very nice cabinet with super bright "MINT" Original Back Glass!

Machine was completely shopped and gone through top to bottom.

The Best Feature is the Lucky Horseshoe Feature in center of the game.
Ball enters horseshoe channel only by the flipper shot through the left or right open tip of the horseshoe. Rollover in each entry adds 1,000 to score and advances BONUS 1,000. But, if ball is propelled across top button, another 5,000 is scored, BONUS advanced 5,000 and Lights up SPECIAL! Special = Free Game!

In 1974 when you were playing machines like Ro Go, 70's singer Carl Douglas with his One Hit Wonder: "Kung Fu Fighting" was playing all the time on the radio!

. Works Perfect
. 4 Players
. It can take Quarters but it is Set on Free Play
. I have a 100% rating with EBAY
. Master the full Viking Experience

"Original Ro Go Art by the Amazing Dave Christensen"

Great pinball machine for the pinball lover would look great in your Business, garage or game room. If you always wanted a restored vintage pinball machine in your home or business, what are you waiting for?

Call me with any questions. I will totally help load and breakdown this game for you to ship out or help load in your car or truck!

$1300

*This is definitely a "Viking Quest!""

Neptune is a great player, if I didn’t have a minty one I’d be calling Buffalo for directions.

seems like a sweet deal. too many pics to be a scam

#17173 3 months ago

$600 for a pretty clean looking Quartette woodrail. For those that can't handle two inch flippers, this one's got four of them.

hey gang.

due to circumstances, i’m clearing out most of my stuff. i can’t stand for long periods of time any longer, and i can’t deal with the work anymore. this doesn’t make me real happy, but it is the way that life has worked out. suggestion to all: don’t break your leg off and shatter it. it doesn’t end well.

southjersey.craigslist.org link

price is negotiable for one of y’all. i just want to clear this stuff out, it is painful to look at it and not be able to do anything with it.

#17178 3 months ago

Bummer dude.. . Good luck with your sale!

Can you play pinball seated on a stool?
Man, sorry about your bad experience and continuing problems with your leg.
You were really going there for a while.
I remember you posting all the work you were doing on "Magic City". The "4-Square" was once Vic Camp's. Maybe he'll want it back. He also sold his "Royal Guard", and says he misses it. But, he's pretty much out of room.

#17180 3 months ago

Sorry to see you sell your collection Chris but life extends beyond pinball. Wishing you the best in whatever comes your way.

I'd say "go for it" While I've never played one (or even seen one), I love the art and the game play sounds interesting.

#17190 84 days ago

It has as about as colorful and nice of backglass as I've seen in any pictures of this one. And the playfield looks real nice as well. A year or so ago I would have been on the phone already making plans to pick it up. Problem is I did that so many times I ended up with overload and spent most of the last year thinning the herd.

Maybe I'll just let it simmer a while and see what happens.

#17191 84 days ago

If I was down in So Cal I would be hopping right on it.
Hopefully it will go to a good home, or eventualy find its way to your garage in the OC.

How about this one. Hard to find by search when it doesn't mention "pinball" or "pin ball" in the ad. Seems like a decent price in this market.

Quoted from AlexF:

Yeah, that'd be a tough one to find. I guess if you searched by every manufacturer you might come across it. Given that most folks looking for this ad won't see it, I'm guessing it won't sell for its asking price unless they've listed it somewhere else, like facebook marketplace, and included some terms that might come up in a search.
