Joust Pinball

I saw the post on about this RARE 1983 head-to-head Joust Pinball game for sale on eBay and had to check it out. I'd seen pictures of these before but have never seen one in person and never seen one in action before the eBay videos below.

I really wish I had a few thousand bucks burning a whole in my pocket to snag this unique pin - but it still has a day and a half left in the auction and is already up to $2,650 so it is going to be too rich for my blood. SO - if you live in the Houston area - or anywhere in Texas really - please go to the auction here, purchase this, and invite me over to play it!

[Update 8/12/2010] I forgot to come back and post the final price - the Joust pin sold for $4,349. Too rich for my blood but sure would have been a kick-ass addition to the gameroom (that I'll have some day)

It can be yours for the low-low price of $2,650 (and counting). C'mon they're practically giving it away!

Today the auction has some new Q&A posted, including: "I found a few more sites, aside from where your auction is being highlighted and thought you might like to know. Check out and and and".

Your international acclaim may be growing soon!!!!

Alright! I feel like the Jerk when he got his name in the phonebook. "This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that MAKES people! I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now..."

I got to play one of these rare beauties last weekend at the 2010 Houston Arcade Expo. It was pretty cool - definitely unique. I liked it. It could have used some more targets though. It is a cool 2-player game but doesn't stand up very well solo.
