Since we seem to be having some temporary difficulty with our website, we’ll use the What’s New section to announce our latest game for sale: Gottlieb’s Card Whiz!
Card Whiz is NOT a restored game. It’s what we call a “player” game. It’s playfield is a little rough looking (as you can see in the photos), but the game is solid, it plays great, and has been thoroughly gone over by our experienced staff.
This is a really fun game, and is rated on the Internet Pinball Database as a 7.8 out of 10. Incidentally, Card Whiz is a two-player game, and it’s four-player identical twin, Royal Flush, is currently the third highest rated EM pinball machine on the IPDB!
It has nine drop targets which represent playing cards. In order to score bonus points, you need to “make” certain “hands” as specified in the BONUS section in the lower playfield. This is a fun and very challenging game, as ball control is difficult to maintain. The drop targets, positioned at an angle, tend to send the ball toward the outholes – requiring a quick bump on the game or a quick move with the flippers!
Why haven’t we restored Card Whiz? Quite simply, the amount of time required to restore Card Whiz’s playfield would make this game cost thousands of dollars when we sold it. It’s a great playing game as is, and none of the imperfections on the playfield detract from the gameplay in any way. The playfield has been cleaned and waxed, and the game has been thoroughly tested and plays great. This particular pinball machine was in a pinball tournament in Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 17th, and received very high reviews from several of the players there.
Card Whiz comes with a 90-day warranty on all parts and labor for anyone within a 1-hour ride from our shop, local area delivery and set-up.
If you don’t mind a game with a few minor “imperfections” then you and your family can enjoy a comparatively inexpensive pinball machine for years to come!
