My favorite game back in college and skipped many a class hovered over it. Somewhat of a drain machine, it is one of the best Gottlieb wedgeheads of the late 60's early 70s. Would love to find a well maintained one to add to my collection

This is one of the best playing EMs ever. There is everything you could ask for in an EM; that 'one more play' feel to it, tough to master, great artwork, well built, intuitive rules, and it is a PHENOMENAL shooter (amongst the best of any EM pin).

The price on this is criminally low, so go try to find one before more people discover it!

I loved this game when I was young and when I found one a few years ago I made a bad 2 for 1 trade for it.
I don't care.....I love this pin!
First game took me right back to around '75 again.
I love looking at the art/colors on this one as much as playing it..... very nyeeess!
Yes, must have strong flipper coils and be set up steep to maximize brutality.

Great game! Very fun drop target AAB game. Love card themed games.

Love it or hate it, PaC is a tough game. Side drains and self play can be frustrating at times. When the Wow targets are lit and a bit of luck you can get Pop!Pop! Pop!

Pop-a-card is a game where, it's gotta be set up right.

The Pros:
Good artwork and a simple layout that add to, but don't distract from the game at hand. Drops from eeeety beeeety fleeeepers require skill, and strong coils. Lighting up the PF when all the targets down is always a challenge. Hitting the upper lanes when all the targets are down for 500 points isn't any easier. A strong and constant challenge with this design. A wide open PF that is deceptively active and requires great nudging/control skills. I likey me add-a-ball.

The Cons:
The upper bank of targets can be hard to reach to the point of frustration.

The Takeaway:
When this table is leveled and maintined, it's a great classic EM player.
