Hi guys, I have the possibility of buying any one of the three titles listed above. I'd love to add a card-themed Gottlieb to my collection.

Of these three, which is the best player / most desired title? All three seem to get pretty darn good reviews, generally speaking.

Thanks for the input.

Biased as I own Capt Card and it is the rarest of the 3.

But so far regarding playability I would go -

Capt Card
Drop A Card
Top Card

And if you prefer replay games then Drop A Card overtakes Capt Card as it is AAB. They are all fun games.

If I were choosing condition would probably decide what I chose.

Capt. Card and DAC are pretty close over all. CC with 3" flippers and AAB while DAC is 2" flippers and replay. Both are great games.

TC is a distant third in my book.

Flip a Card

Capt. Card is my choice.

Best AAB game of the 70s (IMHO) and a very frustrating game that does a great job of getting "one more game" out of a player.

CC for the win!

Capt Card by a long ways. Here's why:
I have my favorite add-a-balls Lucky Hand and Capt Card.
Others like them too - #2 and #5 on pinsides top 100 EM list.
Highly rated by IPDB folks too. CC 7.8 v. Drop a Card 7.7
I like drop targets - so Top card would be out anyway for me.
CC has better shots & stuff to do: placement of the 4 target banks, the wow feature, 10x bonus for each suit you finish - more fun and goals than Drop a Card.

Spin A Card from 1969 is the best...

Captain Card (tie)
Drop a Card (tie)
Top Card

Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with either CC or DaC. Both good games - one is replay, one is add-a-ball - your choice.
