King Pin (Gottlieb, 1973)

King Pin

King Pin

This is a bowling theme pin. It has 10 drop targets that are "bowling pins" you drop. Once you drop them all they reset and you do it again. To get the higher score you drop the lit target. To change the lit target you roll the ball over a rollover switch that is right in the center of the field. It steps the lit target one at a time through the drop targets.

The above intro text acts a bit like a 'wiki' and can be edited by all Pinside members, including you!
