Up to 6, plus a High Hand [I know....you have a Capt Card,...price was right] waiting to be fixed up. All are playable but some need some loving, [Buccaneer is painted black with rust paint] but my favourites, Hit The Deck and Blue Note are very nice. And yes, my phone camera sucks big time....

I'm excited to add my first em to the collection. Ive fixed up a couple for other people, but this one will be a keeper. Got it from an operator that had it in storage for ~ 35 years. He said it was one of the first games he unboxed (as a young tech) for the operator he eventually bought out.

Got everything working and cleaned up, just waiting for a flipper rebuild kit and shooter springs!

Just got my first EM last weekend. It's a Gotlieb El Dorado and I've been playing the heck out of it ever since. It's been home use since 1978 and the condition is excellent. One question though, the tilt ends the game (instead of just the ball in play). Is this an operator setting or just the way the game is?

Anyway, I am glad to be part of the club.

For Gottlieb single players, a tilt ends your game, and it's non adjustable. It's just the way they are.

Thanks, the tilt is pretty tight. I'll have to loosen it up a bit.

not true.
around late 76 or early 77 they had a single pin jones plug that would either end the game or just the ball during a tilt. it is labeled as " tilt in or out "
i will have to dig to find the first game it was used on

I have only one Replay machine (North Star) set up, and thinking I've never tilted it, thus, hadn't known
Tilt ended the game. On AABs, it's ball in play plus one ball..

Strange World has that setting for the Tilt. The plug is located next to the score motor.

Thanks for clarifying, gentlemen! I was not aware of that. All the wedgeheads I've worked on tilt out the game, but that clearly wasn't a large enough sample size to make that assumption.

While paint was drying, I played a couple machines with Majorettes being one of them.
I haven't gone through the Gigi or Slick Chick yet, but this one has a much different
game play than the others I have played. I don't play it often, but when I do, only one
game usually's not enough..

I played my newest (upgraded) Show Boat the other night. This wedgehead is for sure in my top 5 favorites.
Check out the score and match number.

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

If I had to bet, I'd say you did that purposely.
With your skills, that high score should have been beat..
(Or you were playing one handed)

#120 8 days ago

That score on Show Boat is for real and just ended up being all 9’s including the match. My highest score on the Show Boat I just sold that I had for 13 years was 2383 points. I am hoping to beat that score soon on my newly acquired Show Boat.

I was playing this 4 pack of wedgehead recently and end up with a nice score on my Central Park.

I meant to say "Score to Beat". The 1,200
I was only kidding. I knew it landed on the 9s coincidentally, but after looking at some of your
high scores on your saved high score list, I did have a point..

#122 6 days ago

Tonight I turned the score reels around on my 2001 and ended up with 11,450 points and 8 replays.

Three replays were awarded at 5900,7300 and 8100 for points. The other 5 replays, I nailed the center top arch kick out hole for Special and alternating Special at the stand up bulls eye targets.

Tonight I played that Domino next to Vic's 2001.

Holy sh*t! I thought Vic's games played well before his PM, but now they are untouchable! flippers are snappy, pop bumpers strong, switches sensitive, rubbers bouncy. I don't recall how these games played when new, as I've probably gotten accustomed to 50 year old games, but Vic's games have to play better than new. Or maybe just as good, in which case it explains why I got hooked on pinball.

BTW, his games apparently like to end on scores like this one....
