    Pinball

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    The video games topic started to get quite a few mentions of Pinball Machines, so I thought Id start a separate topic for it.
    A great site for information on pretty much every Pinball Machine made is The Internet Pinball Database
    http://www.ipdb.org/

    As mentioned in the other thread, I have 3 Pinballs.
    King Pin - Gottlieb 1973 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1374
    Sinbad - Gottlieb 1978 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2159
    STTNG - Williams 1994 http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2357

    Over the years, my other favourites have been (in no particualr order):
    Black Rose
    Gorgar
    Black Knight
    Centaur
    Road Show
    The Addams Family
    World Cup 94
    Eight Ball Deluxe
    Indiana Jones
    Monster Bash
    Simpson Pinball Party
    South Park
    Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    Playboy (1978 Bally version http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1823)
    Joker Poker
    Attack From Mars
    Whirlwind
    Cyclone

    And Im sure theres a number Ive missed.

    Who else owns some and/or spent way too much time and money in Amusement Parlours when young?

    Which ones stand out (for good or bad reasons - EG: The ill fated Banana Flippers experiment - Disco Fever)?

    And does anyone else get boxes of stuff delivered from Marco Specialities in the USA?

    King Pin is my era the rest are modern.

    BTW the link to the Playboy machine is wrong.


    My dad used to run a kafenio and after school Id go and play the pinnies, including some old style like Coney Island.
