    I love those early 60s WMS EMs (including the reverse wedgeheads) Yes, same. I do have a few others (mostly AABs), but I do have a couple of the Replays and although I like AAB best, I'm tempted to go through the Trade Winds sooner than later. I've heard some pretty good things about that machine..

    Williams Early '60s Chrome Flipper Games Post #30 in topic

    Posted 82 days ago by Mopar – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply 16 days ago

    Hot Line has them and it was 1966. Zig Zag 1964 also has chrome. I'm now a little curious about the Wing Ding and Big Strike. I'm thinking Wing Ding has metal flippers, but not so sure about Big Strike. The Vagabond, Trade Winds, and Friendship 7 have chrome, the Palooka has red metal flippers. I have a couple others, but can't recall the flippers' color. I plan on digging them out before long. Always interesting checking out the machines that's been stored and not seen in quite some time..

    My Trade Winds is one of the early production ones issued, so it uses the same cabinet as earlier games like Jolly Jokers and not the reverse wedgehead style. The cabinet art is the same as the later Trade Winds in the reverse wedgehead cabinets but with a different color scheme. Note that mine has been repainted, but to the original colors and design.

    Williams Riverboat 1964 Head Question Post #5 in topic

    Posted over 4 years ago by jrpinball – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply over 4 years ago

    The first Williams reverse wedgehead game "Trade Winds" is the only one that can be found with a rectangular head. The sales flyer shows it that way, so obviously they were the early production ones. The only other variation that I've seen in the series is two different paint schemes on the head of "Heat Wave".

    I had STLE for 4 years and have had PotC for 10 years, just got to 4 winds the first time ever (3 balls). I never thought ST was great, it has a lot of modes but they can feel same-ish. I think they’re about equal so if you’re tired of Potc can trade for ST pro. IMO SM is **better** than ST and trades in the same price range as well. My view SM >> Potc = ST

    I was noticing how Trade Winds and Domino are similar in goals as you have a map on the playfield that you have to follow and complete to get where you need to go. But that's about where the similarities end. That dawned on me as well while thinking about the dissimilarity between "Domino" and "Play Mates". "Play Mates" is similar to Gottlieb "Flipper" as far as the game objectives. As you said "Domino" is very much like "Trade Winds".

    Moulin Rouge looks tough, but check out all the exits on Trade Winds. So I've been playing my Trade Winds after a recent extensive rebuild/refurb and find the outlanes not as bad as they look. Invariably the slightest nudges get the ball back to the flippers. I end up losing the ball down the middle more than anything which still makes it a tough game to play. I've made it to Tahiti a few times but have only mustered 2 or 3 replays and it is a rare occurrence.

    All I know is after playing a few rounds of Trade Winds or some of the other short flipper machines, it makes Flash Gordon seem like childs play. Then I can go on to have an epic game on BSD. Which shows me it is better to practice on all different eras of games if you really want to get good. I've heard in competition some of these DMD wizards end up floundering on the older EMs because they don't get the practice.

    I guess I'm kind of wondering what style of flipper Genco used. Was it only Williams that used impulse? I had a 1948 Genco Trade Winds and if memory serves it was an impulse flipper game. What was also interesting is the flipper linkage was tied together so either button operated both flippers. It doesn't have a drink shelf like the mod cabs but you can hold your beer in one hand and still play. :-)

    Kick Out Hole Update Opinions Post #1 in topic

    Posted over 4 years ago by MikeO – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply over 4 years ago

    I'm woring on a Williams Trade Winds with a somewhat worn kickout hole. I'm thinking about oversizing the hole to receive the later style Gottlieb hole liner. This would let me fill in the wear using the hole liner as a form and then touching it up. The hole appears to be a little over 30mm in diameter without a liner. The liner looks to need a hole about 32mm. So the inner hole diameter would stay the same. Has anyone else done this? Any pitfalls you'd be willing to share?

    I dig Genco games. They made some cool stuff. I had a Trade Winds many years ago. It's not one of their more collectible machines but not bad. Reverse impulse flippers may take some getting used to and you'll most likely have to convert the selenium rectifier. If you want some historic charm in the game room and the price is right why not.
