1965 gottlieb kings & queens. One of the classic pinball. One of kings & queens claim to fame is that it was. Played by roger daltrey in the 1975 movie tommy. Movie mystique, it offers a great playfield layout, a nice card theme in cancel all four suited cards of ace through jack, and has good action. On the playfield, making it a fantastic game to play, as well as to just look. It’s unique playfield feature is that the four kickout holes in the center. Of the playfield pass the ball to each one to their right! If you get the. Ball into the ace hole, it scores its points and then passes the ball to the. Points are scored and it is passed to the queen hole and the jack at which time it is then kicked out towards the flippers! No collection is complete without a kings & queens, so. Here is your chance! And best of all, this machine is. Get it home, plug it in, and play! It doesn’t get any. Easier or any better than that! Although this machine is technically. Mechanically unshopped, other than having all of its bad bulbs replaced, it is. Playing great through a game. Being an em machine that has been sitting. Idle in my storage for a little while, i’ll stop short of saying that. Everything is working perfectly at all times, but after playing a few games, i. Will say that it seemed to be working about 99.9% correctly! Good action on the playfield with good “pop” from the bumpers and strong flippers. All scoring features seem to be working well including the kick out holes in. You shouldn’t have to spend much time, if any, on the. Mechanics of this machine! Get it home, set it up, and play! The way you like them! The original backglass is in pretty nice. It does have some small missing chips of paint, but none real. These are mostly in the shadowing of the name letters, in the hair. Of the girl at the top, and in the arms of the guy sitting by her. Has been some touchup done in the red dress of the girl sitting at the table as. Well as in the red around the “game over” lettering in the lower left. It also has a couple nicks in the solid white paint between the. Score reels where the reels hit the back of the glass a design flaw by. I’m not trying to make this glass sound worse than ! Even with the minor imperfections that it has, it still looks very. Nice and presents itself well, as the photos show. It has been sealed on. The backside to prevent any further issues with the paint. Colors are nice and bright with no sign of any fading. And this is a very. It shows a nice barroom scene with card players, dancing. Girls and cowboys at the bar, fantastic period graphics! Fine in the machine but if you are a perfectionist, this backglass has been. Reproduced so if you want a perfect, new one, you can have it! Meantime, this glass will certainly suffice. The playfield paint is in fairly nice does have some wear to mention, immediately next to the three pop bumpers, between the four kickout holes, below the “jack” kickout, and to the left of. The girl’s face in the lower center portion. There are also a few other. Chips next to some of the round plastic inserts, but nothing bad. Overall, this playfield is definitely presentable i’ve seen a lot worse! Is far from perfect. That being said, you be the judge. Colors are nice and bright and the graphics are in great shape with no sign of. Any fading to the colors. Overall, this is a fairly nice playfield, but. All of the playfield plastics are in great shape. With no cracks/breaks and good colors, again, continuing the card playing theme. With poker chip graphics! One of the plastic lane guides is cracked still functions as it should. These have been reproduced if you replace it. All five of the round bumper caps are in place cracks/breaks. The painted graphics have started to fade but you could. Easily touch them up with a sharpie pen. The lower metal playfield in very nice shape with only a couple minor nicks/scratches in the. There are original score and instruction cards on the apron. Again, for the perfectionist who wants a perfect machine, you are in. This playfield has been reproduced so if you felt the need, you.

Bumpers at the top, seven rollover lanes across the top, three round pop. Bumpers, a single and a double rollover lane along each middle side, another. Single one along each of the bottom sides, yet another one below/between the. Flippers, and the star attraction of this playfield, four kickout holes in. The unique thing about these kickout holes is that when. The ball falls into one, it keeps kicking the ball to the next kickout. Hole to the right, until upon reaching the jack kickout hole, it. Finally kicks the ball out towards the flippers. Maximize your points, hit it in the ace hole, then it gets transferred to the. King, then the queen, and then finally to the jack hole, with bonus points. Being scored at each stop based on how many of each letter you have already. The jack hole then finally kicks it back into you cancel each of the cards in the rollover lanes on the playfield, that. Corresponding card is lit below its kickout hole. Points are then 10 for getting the ball in a hole, and another 10 for each additional card. That you have lit for that hole. The ultimate objective is to get all.

Otherwise, just play this machine like it was intended! The coin door and entry. Plate are both straight with noticeable surface rust on both.
