    This really is a moving target, but I'd love to find a Gottlieb Gemini in any kind of shape...for a reasonable price. I think they made 300. If I get that and a Strange World, I could finally let go of 1978....well, except for the way I dress... @DaMoib - if you find a Quick Draw, you should snag it - tons of fun! It's definitely a keeper!

Although, PBR doesn't list the game as being part of the 82 catalog. The games leading up to #strange-world were using either the A-7766 or A-7907 cam.

    Gottlieb Strange World Sample Scoring Issue Post #2 in topic

    Posted 46 days ago by MarkG – in EM Pinball Tech ‐ Last reply 36 days ago

    I do have constant power from motor switch 2B to both relays as shown on the schematic. It sounds like your E/5000 point relay remains active for three Score Motor cycles instead of releasing after one Score Motor cycle. Is that right? The Motor 2B switch should open at the end of each cycle to release the Q/Series and E/5000 point relays. Maybe it's gapped to close? what purpose does the 10 ohm, 10 watt resister have, See https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/strange-world-scoring-relays-question /Mark

    Ok, replaced the tantalum caps, still no difference. I bought another soundboard which is on its way so I decided to do a stripdown and general shop of the playfield. I replaced all the bulbs with led Inc the backbox. Turned it on and the sound now works perfectly!!!! Strange because the board from world cup soccer worked no problem and I checked the ac and DC voltages. Once the other sound board arrives I might keep it just in case.

    Wonka did not look that impressive to me on launch from pictures and videos. If it's anywhere close to good as TZ I need to check it out. So.....you've never played WONKA, but have played TZ....which the OP OWNS, and knows already..... so... how in the world is this helpful to the OP to decide wether or not to switch to Wonka??

I own #01055S. The original records from Gottlieb have been lost, so no telling how many "Sample" machines were made.
