The game is just about ready to test!  I have a switch issue, and a couple of computer issues that I have resolved, then I should be playing a ton of new bingos. :-D

 

There's a solid state magic screen game called Palm Beach Turbo for sale by the operator near Baltimore, MD.  Please contact me if you are interested in an inexpensive solid state bingo!

Today's featured game is 1960's Bally Ball Park - the first and only game that Bally produced with a running man unit.  I really wonder why that might have happened.  A fairly straightforward two player pitch and bat, Bally Park has a moving red target that will score four runs when hit!

The game's schematic is complete and now I am beginning to wire it up!

So exciting to see the game move from conceptual phases to physical reality.

 

Much, much more work left to do, but things are coming along nicely!

Today's game is 1967's Bally Boot-a-Ball.  This is a head-to-head EM soccer game.  Each player has three sets of flippers to attempt to get the ball into their opponent's goal.

The game is starting to become a physical reality now!

I went on a road trip over the weekend to pick up hardware from Dennis Dodel.  Had a great time, and Ava and I got to meet Dennis and his friend Jon.

Now, I'm working on the hardware and wiring, and I am more excited than ever!

Today's game is 1962's Williams 3 Coins.  3 Coins is the replay version of Jolly Jokers.  The layout is unique and interesting to play, as well as a lot of fun.
