My multi-bingo has come along well - up to 8 completed games, and another two in progress.  Many thanks to Dennis Dodel, Chris Dade and Bingo Butch and his son Mike!

 

Next episode I should have the first hardware episode.

 

This episode's game is 1965's Bally 50/50.  Bally has made an interesting, low-production 2 player game here - 1/2 of the playfield is essentially not useful for scoring or progression at any given time.

Game progress: my game is coming along very well!  I have Coney Island, Bright Lights, Broadway '51, and United Zingo reasonably finished.

Now, I am working on United's Leader and Bally's Spot-Lite.

My code, to this point, has been released at https://github.com/bingopodcast/bingos

I'll be keeping this updated as I add each new game.

Today's game is 1964's Bally 2-in-1.  Very fun looking game where you have to get a hand to 21, then hold.  The trouble comes in that next ball, you will get a hit unless you hit a particular rebound switch off the skill shot.
