Hi guys,

I would like to see some further videos or photos of the legendary #Playboy Pin2000 prototype.

I have seen the "Tilt" bonus video thousands of times but the quality is really bad and you can't see much from playfield.

There were a few events in the past where this prototype was for free play. Maybe someone shots some photos or video?

For the lucky persons who had the chance to play:
How well does it play?
How can be the magnets activated?
Where goes the ball on launchramp if you plunge to hard?
What happened with the subwayramp/ why are the both holes blocked with paper?
Are there 2 skillshots on launchramp?
There are some diverter in the back of the game when do they act?
What happened if you shot the 3 Playboybunny Dropdowntargets?

You can reference some of these old threads, these folks had a lot more info, and I know a few folks have tried their hand at completing Playboy and Wizard Blocks.

Anyone who played the Playboy remember which launchramp is installed?

Quoted from Ahoernchen:

No, but the ball does gets stuck in a few places...
Eg, behind the entrance ramp from the right drain.
The game does not have finished programming...
That is why the trap hole is stuffed with paper.

Thanks for the information.

So I think there were 2 skillshots?

Interesting that the 2 outholes in playfield are blocked with paper but if I remember right I have seen a photo that these holes weren‘t blocked anymore?
