This machine is pretty much a 'Barn Find'. Same household owner since the 1980's. Needs TLC and a good clean. Playfield decent and unrestored, has newer drop targets and functionally good all around. I used this playfield for about a month with as is while restoring another for my 'keeper' JP. It needs a new backglass (my opinion) - Note that I have a decent backglass as a takeout from a JP I got a new CPR backglass and happy to swap it out. I would sell this machine, or might consider a trade. The machine does need Gottlieb System 1 work or replace the boards with an All in One board. I ran this machine with an All in One and it works fine. Definitely has grounding issues with the original boards.
JOKER POKER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverYes right now I have two of this title. This machine has new backglass, restored playfield, plays really nice. Fun game!  
MARS GOD OF WAR Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybe  
OUTER SPACE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever
SINBAD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverYard Sale find about 2012. It really nice condition, HUO since at least 1992.

3 JOKERS Williams (USA)Sold SOLD, have fun!
BIG BRAVE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Could use a backglass. Playfield worn, needs work overall. At least one broken playfield plastic. Update 12/30/2022 - Replaced drop targets as the target bank needed rebuild (missing sequence bar!). Replaced vari-target, again, parts plain missing. Plays OK now.  
CAPT. FANTASTIC AND THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY Bally (USA)Sold Traded for Close Encounters
ROYAL FLUSH Gottlieb (USA)Sold Playfield deep cleaned, paint touched up, waxed. New Shay backglass, new legs, new plastics, drop targets and glass. Looks and plays great. Cabinet cleaned and waxed, but not repainted so shows some bruises from age, still good enough for most living rooms. Yes, my second time with this title!
ROYAL FLUSH Gottlieb (USA)Sold Sold to DECOSPIN. Have fun! His first pin!  
SKY JUMP Gottlieb (USA)Sold 
TRIDENT Stern (USA)Sold Machine plays, case has been painted black (yuck!, missing player 4 score display, and the drop target sequence does not work correctly. I have a number of other pins, but just rescued this one because I could (darn hobbies). Certainly willing to sell or trade this one.
