The AAB version of Abra Cadabra. The theme isn't great but gameplay is great and love that it is AAB.

Theme stinks, game is super! This game is getting a WIZARD transformation.

I had Abra Ca Dabra and really enjoyed it! I didn't think I would with the lower Pop bumpers, but it's what makes the game.

I sought a Team One after playing it at Pacific Pinball Museum for the Abra fun and the addition of Add-A-Ball.

Great game to play, lots of fun. Theme takes away from it, but hey, Go Brazil!

My favorite part is Jay Leno in the backglass!

Hahaha Team One is (as of 4-15-15) not in the top 100, but it's better looking (but less fun) cousin AbraCaDabra is No. 1. Yes the art is arguably not as good, and it's an Add-A-Ball, but the aab aspect is what many say makes this game superior. Team One is much rarer, a better player (IMHO), and should be MUCH MUCH higher on these list. But, it's rare, so not many have played it. You want a #1 playing pin for 1/2 the price? Keep on the lookout for a Team One!

I own Team I could be biased, but only slightly.

Wowie what a game! Had a blast playing this title recently. Real great fun trying to get the Wow's, great game to nudge with. Great placement with the bumpers. A+ all around

Nice relaxing game with a lot of fun added in. Sure it's a shoot the drop targets game and not much else but this is when pinball was simple and not like the overpriced junk they call pinball today.

I looked at a Team One and an Abracadabra and bought the TO instead because of the AAB factor, if it's just looks Abracadabra wins hands down. But I love the AAB rules better. And you're always trying to hit the lit drop target for 5k versus the 500 point ones.

Two important things to do if you buy a Team One. First set it up as steep and challenging as possible and most definitely set it for three ball play or you will have half hour games with 500k points and get sick of it quickly. Three ball play and a steep slope can lead to quick challenging games!

650 made. I have a nice example and someone will want it after me. But for now it's play on player and have fun with Team One.

One of the few games designed by the criminally short career of Jeff Brenner.

The Pros:
A great layout with fantastic action and solid shots. Jeff Brenner did not design too many games. This is one of 4 playfields that he worked on. I say worked on because Lawman was the PF for Atlantis. However, I will say that his body of work at Gottleib has produced some of the best EM tables out there.

The Cons:
I'm usually a big fan of Add-a-ball games, but the challenge of Abra-Ca-Dabra is not in this deck. The balance of the ruleset must be adjusted with the steepness and nastification of the table. The theme... well... could be anything. This ruleset is too simple and easy to max out!

The Takeaway:
Collectors may gush over the rarity of this title, but it is not anywhere in the same league of the EM playing perfection of Abra-Ca-Dabra.

Team One is no Abra Ca Dabra but it's some of my favorite art. I really like the layout and it's fun to play. It really seems like the scoring lets this table down as some of the easier and least fun things to hit get the most points. I usually just play it for fun and don't really look at the score.
Edit: I'm not sure why I said the scoring wasn't good. Lots to shoot for and different ways to get EB. It's a well thought out package. Must be a product of playing it at the Pinball Hall of Fame. Too many machines to play.
