I think you mean Gottlieb King of Diamonds. I have the add-a-ball version Diamond Jack

Does Diamond Jack require hitting J-A in order? If so, then that’s my game. Been several decades since I played it.

I had a route many years ago in NY. I still have 5 machines in my house now. Bally Fireball, Bally Fireball Classic, Bally Dogies, Bally Cosmo, Bally Night Rider, and Gottlieb Wild Wild West.

I'd love to do something in the villages in the rec centers. Where do we start?

Jeff, do you have the EM or SS version of Night Rider? Up in NY now but coming down on Monday. We should make this happen.

I would really like to see something pinball related...club or whatever...get started. Seems like such a good fit for TV, and one of the few voids in our recreation spectrum. I would be glad to assist in some way.

Nope, was 5-ball game. Hard as heck to win. Really thought name of game was Ace of Diamonds, probably Gottlieb, possibly Bally (but I doubt it). Now you’ve got me wondering. Google here I come!
