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

#3 3 years ago


Best of all worlds. DMD that acts like an EM throwback....with a Sys11-ish rule set.


#4 3 years ago

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

#5 3 years ago

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.

I'd trade my Breakshot for a nice non-LE Eight Ball Deluxe.

Quoted from pmWolf:

Hey, I like Breakshot.

Oh I like it too, but EBD is an all time legend!

#8 3 years ago

Target Pool Gottlieb 1969


#9 3 years ago

Williams Colors

#10 3 years ago

EBD hands down. Rack em up!

#11 3 years ago

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.

#12 3 years ago

EBD no question about it.

#13 3 years ago

Pool sharks... You even get a talking pool shark.

#14 3 years ago
#15 3 years ago

Gottlieb Big Shot. 2 separate 7-bank sets of drops on each side. A lot of fun! Also EBD, obviously.

#16 3 years ago

EBD no question.
Nineball is pretty dam good too. I'd put that 2nd.

#17 3 years ago

No. Love for Hot Shots

#18 3 years ago

EBD. Everything else is competing for second place.

#20 3 years ago

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

Eight ball deluxe, the capcom is like 8th down the list.

#22 3 years ago

My favorite is Cue Ball Wizard. I really enjoy the Eastwood soundalike.

#23 3 years ago

Bank a Ball is a beauty.

#24 3 years ago

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.

#26 3 years ago

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

#27 3 years ago


#28 3 years ago

EBD of course. But I like Gottlieb Hot Shot and Sharkey's is fun.

#29 3 years ago

Bally EIGHT BALL DELUXE at the top!

#30 3 years ago

9 ball is also good. If you can find one.

#31 3 years ago

Laser Cue, I own one and love it! Eight Ball Deluxe is a great game, I would like to have one!

#32 3 years ago


#33 3 years ago

EBD, it's a great game. Especially if you like drop targets as much as I do.

#34 3 years ago

I love drop target.

Only issue with EBD is they rarely for sale.

Laser cue looks interesting

#35 3 years ago

Quit talking and start chalking; Eight Ball Deluxe

If you were closer to Kansas I would let you check mine out!

#37 3 years ago

Poor, overlooked Sharkey's Shootout.

#39 3 years ago

Why does sharkeys shootout get no love?
Never played one, reviews are low

#40 3 years ago

I like the AAB version ... "FLIPPER POOL"

i had a Sharkey's for a couple years. I really enjoyed it. Very fun for the money it goes for. A lot deeper than you think it is.

#42 3 years ago

Williams Miss-O takes it!

#43 3 years ago

I would say EBD is the winner, but other than that its Hands down Bad Girls for me....freaking great game

#44 3 years ago

The original 8 ball. That spinner kills it.

#45 3 years ago

Sharkey's Shootout and 8 Ball Champ!

#46 3 years ago

Hi-Diver! Ftw

#47 3 years ago

I love Big Shot/Hot Shot!

#48 3 years ago

Lave EBD and lots of the other Pool pinballs, but Gottlieb's 1950 Bank-A-Ball is the purest form!!

#49 3 years ago

Looks like a great game, but I'm not seeing the spinner.

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
