Why do they have that opening comment on this description? only thing ugly is you're told that before you even read the rest. Didn't like the color of green they painted on the cabinet but i just repainted cabinet with a better green and it is one of the best looking machines out there. The constant running of the motor that changes the bonus on the helm value was an easy fix by hooking it to the post up so it only cycles when post is up, design flaw nobody caught. After fixing it is one of the best playing machines. Flippers work strong and great and pops are good, Lights are excellent and the use of two on the boat works great. It's a nice 4 player machine i will keep for awhile.

My first EM game I owned. Rescued from owners back yard and got it up and running. Fun EM game.

Smart Set has a few things going for it. Emphasis on the word "few".

The Pros:
A nice layout with good action in the pops. The wide open PF requires accuracy with all shots esp. to the saucers.

The Cons:
The saucer at the top of the game gets your ball to your flippers in no time flat. Hitting the saucers on the side with 10x lit is always seems to be a matter of chance as compared to a matter of skill. The outlanes are SUPER hungry, and even an up-post does not help the cause with this design. Random points spinners are goin' back to Cali... I don't think so.

The Takeaway:
Marche's artwork on this game is servicable, but not of particular note or quality. A good game to bat the ball around the playfield with, not much more than that. A great game for the kids that just want to play pinball and don't really care much about any other part of the experience.
