For its time, deep rule set and fun shots and neat ball lock.

I just restored one of these rare games for a customer, so I got to put a lot of playtime on it.

Usually I don't gravitate towards Card Games, but mix Cards and Showgirls and you at least have my attention.

Most guest at the shop had never seen the game, but loved the kitschy 70's design and colors.

Same with the 70s "video game" sounds. They really define the era.

This is a Steve Kordek design, so naturally it's a shooter's game. The playfield has lots of wide open area, so you can really show off your shooting chops (if you have any).

This game has Double Action Flippers which allows the inner flippers to operate first, or all four flippers to operate, depending on how far the flipper buttons are pressed. Unlike other 4 flipper games, this allows you to avoid losing balls between a pair of flippers (once you get the hang of it).

The Kings captive balls is a super ingenious twist on the Newton ball trick. I'm surprised that this never got reused in any latter games. 4 balls need to be knocked around a loop and stacked to score the Kings. A post, powered by a solenoid, drops below the playfield to release the balls to their starting position.

If you are into shooter's games, Pokerino has a lot to offer.

Possibly the worst game to come out of Williams in the late 70's.

The Pros:
Umm... yeah... The cabinet looks alright.

The Cons:
Looks, sounds and plays like crap. Feel free to add as many firewood/ boat anchor analogies to this deck as you please. Personally... I am stunned. I can't believe Kordek designed this table.

The Takeaway:
Take me away to another pinball game.
