Sometimes when you really want a game, you have to “play hard to get.” Here’s the story of me doing that and it working out ok. I’d say that’s a 50-50 chance but in this case it worked out.
As soon as I thought I had the game operational, I waxed the playfield and got ready to put it back together only to find out one of the flippers was out. This was a rather tricky issue that took a little bit to figure out — not your typical flipper problem, so I thought I’d do a video of it and go through the process of diagnosing why a flipper might not work (on a Bally-35 early solid state game).
This is a story of one of my “grail games” that, well, most people would scratch their heads at. Sometimes you want a game that nobody else cares about. There are a variety of reasons for this, but what you like is what you like. This is one of my stories.
