Thinking about adding a pool themed pinball machine to collection and I know there are a lot pool themed pins.
So it could be SS EM or DMD
Looking forward to your ideas and reasons
Best of all worlds. DMD that acts like an EM throwback....with a Sys11-ish rule set.
Breakshot come on now. EBD and it isn;t close...check the records
EDIT: Funny, there ARE a lot of Breakshot votes in there. I would be guessing thats DMD preference though
Hey, I like Breakshot.
Stan Fukuoka art is awesome, the DMD animations are cool (as are all Capcom's), and I like the simple toy based on physics! (Hey, I'm a sucker for hitting that big metal post and watching the two pinballs ricochet into their pockets. It's sweet).
And...hidden Godzilla in the translight.
EBD or Breakshot. Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you are!
Pinball Pool ain't half bad either.
My favorite number is 43. My favorite color is tropical turquoise.
Gottlieb Big Shot. 2 separate 7-bank sets of drops on each side. A lot of fun! Also EBD, obviously.
Hi-Score Pool: virtually the entire playfield is covered, so you can't even see what exactly you are aiming at, nor track the ball on it's way back to the flippers. Played this at TPF last year. LOL
8 Ball Champ is a much better game than I would every have guessed.
I won't tout it as the best, but worth a look.

EBD is my #1
Laser Cue isn't bad either.
Same goes for Poll Sharks.
Wish I had never sold my 8 Ball Champ a few years back.
Ebd #1 looking to buy one in michigan
Have a pool sharks good game pick between 8 ball or 9 ball
Also have an eight ball champ but deluxe is better
Not sure bout sharkeys shootout as i've
never played one good luck on search
Laser Cue, I own one and love it! Eight Ball Deluxe is a great game, I would like to have one!
Lave EBD and lots of the other Pool pinballs, but Gottlieb's 1950 Bank-A-Ball is the purest form!!
Previous post is a 1952 Williams 8ball, Williams also made an 8ball in 1966. The machine with the spinner was Ballys original eight ball in 1977. I prefer the eight ball deluxes starting in 1980. I have an original and a deluxe, and like to point out to friends just how much the technology advanced in pinball from 1977 to 1980. I only have two machines so yes I still have friends, lol
