Although I generally prefer replay games, the Pleasure Isle is the one exception in my collection that is an add-a-ball.
I'm lucky to have several local friends who are also EM collectors and the one general rule that we have among ourselves is to not get a game that one of us already has. After all, it seems reasonable that we should have titles that are unique so when we visit one another, we can enjoy games that we don't necessarily have to own.
The Pleasure Isle, again, became an exception to the rule because I first had the opportunity to play this game at a friend's several years ago and liked it so much that I did everything to buy it or trade it from him. I really wanted it to be in my home so I could be play it often and not just on occasion. However, and not surprisingly, my friend would not part with his as the PI was one of his favorite games and was not going anywhere.
With luck, I did come across one that had previously been wonderfully restored by one of the best artisans in the country. A worthwhile purchase, as this game with so many mechanical features needs to be running at 100% to be truly appreciated.
The general description of game play and theme has been discussed, but I wanted this review to be reflective of one who has been in the hobby for many years, owned dozens of different titles, and can state unequivocally that this is one of the best games that I have ever owned.

Pleasure Isle is one of my favorite EM's to play. It has many cool play-field and back-glass features. It is also a rare multiplayer add-a-ball EM from the 60's. It has the 4 kick-over saucers in the center of the play-field (like on Kings & Queens/Melody) whose values change depending upon the "under the play-field" spinner, including a star that will add-a-ball. It keeps track of the added balls with a rotating wheel in the back-glass as well as a Hula Girl in the backbox that shakes her hips when the ball is added. The Hawaiian theme has great artwork and colors and the metal posts gleam. Simply Beautiful!
