United's coin flash animations are in process - I discuss the mechanical differences between Bally and United games from the perspective of coin flash, then give some simple updates on Robo-Frenzy and Multi Races.

Jones Plugs are fantastic for allowing simple connection/disconnection of the head of a game or a coin door from the cabinet body, but it's important to double check these plugs when your game is having problems, especially if a new (to you) game, or a game that has recently been moved.

Lastly, the game for today is Gottlieb's "Double-Shuffle" from 1949.  Twin scoring, similar to Twin Bill, but with a simple, fun sequence on either side of the playfield.  Attractive artwork and backglass animation round out the package.

The biggest news for today's episode: the announcement of the Multi Races project.  Thanks to Dennis Dodel for the name!

The plan is to make another Multi-type game that will allow you to play all 49 of the one-ball horse race games.  Very excited to get started.  I've made a thread here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/multi-races-the-multi-one-ball-horserace-game

The Multi-Bingo still needs some animations written for a handful of Bally games and almost all of the United games.

Robo-Frenzy - I decided a while ago upon a design for the timer unit - I had previously stacked too much on that one unit.  I'm moving certain circuits to trip relays instead, which will simplify the timer unit design.  Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong part.  After York, I'll get back to the game.

Two small updates to the last podcast, I talk about repairing the Bally Ballerina and going through the underside of the Williams Rag Mop that Ryan and I discussed.
