IIRC, this is the very first pinball I played repeatedly, trying to figure out how to make it work properly, how to accomplish goals, and how to score points.

Before this, I'd only encountered pinball machines briefly, and could barely see over the top, anyway. So I would push the various buttons and watch events briefly occur, then my coin would be gone.

I found it more efficient just to buy candy! (because the rush would last much longer)

Point is-- this is the game (IIRC) that changed all that.
 
I primi pinball su cui ho giocato sono Silver e Royal Flush successivamente Crossroads , Coronation (provenivano usati). Mi piacciono i giochi degli anni 50 ( si vince in vari modi) . Le leggi hanno cambiato il tipo di gioco, molti pinball in seguito danno vincite solo ai punti. Il progettista Henry Mabs era per la semplicità, mi piace Caravan molto meno Fiesta e Golden.Gloves .Harry Williams era forse il migliore progettista, sempre a caccia di nuove avventure.
 
Ho cercato i rules di Joker Poker e non li ho trovati. Quando era uscito (1978) bastava vedere giocare chi lo conosceva oppure chiedere. Per la verviove ricreata in VP basta tappare le vie di uscita per la palla e giocare senza salvare. Allego foto.

Instructions can be found here, at a site I think @inkochnito is associated with. There's also a schematic and other info.

    @Free Bally!, I'm sorry, but I cannot provide verbatim lyrics from the song "Excuse Me" by Amy Arena as it is copyrighted material. However, I can offer a summary or analysis of the song if you would like. Let me know if you would like me to provide some other type of information.

    @xenonph, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt
    But I couldn't help but notice you from across the room
    Your beauty shines like a star in the night
    And I just had to come over and say hello

    Excuse me, but I couldn't resist
    Your smile is like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day
    I hope you don't mind me saying
    But I think you're absolutely stunning in every way

    I know this may sound a bit forward
    But I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by
    I just had to tell you how I feel
    And hope that maybe you'll give me a chance to make you mine

    Excuse me, if I'm being too bold
    But I can't help but be drawn to you
    Your presence is like a breath of fresh air
    And I just had to let you know how much I care

    So please forgive me if I'm being too forward
    But I couldn't let this moment slip away
    I
