I'm moving to a new house and I only wanna take one early solid state game with me. Here's the current condition of each game:

1. Blackhole: Very little wear. It was sold to me as a HUO pin but I can't confirm.
2. Joker Poker: Great condition plays great.
3. Black Knight: Gold power coating , CPR silver knight PF, Repainted cabinet.
4. EBD: Project machine, have new CPR PF and NOS backglass.
5 Spectrum: Project machine, have new NOS sample PF.

Why only one?

EBD and Joker Poker are great go to games for a quick pinball fix -- simple rules yet plenty to keep you coming back.
Black Knight sounds like a potential keeper too. . .

I don't even own the machines and I am having difficult time deciding!

Keep them all. Find a friend who would be happy to put the rest in his line up, then swap out machines when you get tired of the one in your house.

Tough decision but if I had to pick from your list I would take Black Knight.

tough call. i dont think i could pick just one if i had to do that!

I'd take BH or EBD. Definitely EBD if it were already restored.

Question is, do you prefer to play games or restore?

you have 3 games in great condition that you can play right now, and 2 games which are projects
it sounds like you are moving to a smaller house, are you going to be able to work on the projects in your new house?

If you want to make a terrible mistake and sell that Joker Poker, you let me know

I would rather have a restored pin. I'm not into projects but sometimes I just can't pass up on a game.

Sell them all, move, order a NIB.

OK, so that knocks two out
the other 3 are all good games, you will regret selling two of them
