Joker Poker (Solid State)

Photo of the Joker Poker backglass as described in the post

Joker Poker. Gottleib. 1978. Three busty ladies with tiny waists dressed in body suits that are supposed to be joker costumes magic an unending trail of cards to dance around the backglass while purple and red clouds billow in a yellow sky. Trippy. There is no way those outfits are supportive enough for those DDD cups though and your body suit should fold under your breasts.

Excalibur, another goddamned Gottleib, 1988. It’s no wonder I’m playing like shit tonight.

A giant man emerges from the ground (the waist up, anyway) wearing armor and swinging a big sword around while his cape

Other warriors smaller than the palm of his hand battle around him. A castle stands on a hill in the background.

Bad Girls

A photo of the backglass for Bad Girls as described in the post

Bad Girls, by Gottlieb, 1988.

This backglass is a giant photo of a bar or possibly pool hall.Front and center is a small pool table with chrome stripes around its table walls. Women are playing pool – one in black stockings and a pink strapless dress, one in a black strapless leather shirt and pink shirt (and again with the stockings) and one in a black bikini top and pink skirt. Some random men stand around in the background watching the girls. “Bad Girls” is written in a handwriting script up in the top right corner.

All I can say is between the stilettos and the tight clothes, that’s a hell of an uncomfortable way to play pool.


Photo of the count-down backglass as described in the post

Count-Down, 1979, goddamned Gottleib.

An astronaut in a pale blue space suit sits in his cockpit in space while a… alien space princess with pink hair in a scanty red dress and tiara with huge red stone in it floats outside his window.

Either that or he’s high as fuck.
