I'd like to add mine to the database, and see how many other pinsiders got ahold of one. Thanks!!

I'm at work and that link is totally blocked for me here, but I'll get it later today unless one of the boys takes care of it first.

Wow how does the machine even work? You plunge the ball and get the reward where it falls in the pit?

I think it's supposed to be like a speed game. You and your opponent get the same number of balls to start. You plunge them, trying to get them to the center of your opponents pit, which scores a point. There are four possible outcomes to a plunge:
1) The ball lands in your opponents pit, scoring you a point.
2) The ball lands in your pit, scoring your opponent a point.
3) The ball falls in your opponents gobble hole, giving your opponent an additional ball to use against you.
4) The ball falls in your gobble hole, giving you your ball back.

Game is over when all the balls are plunged and scored. It might be more fun if there was a time limit.

Gobble hole. Classic

Very cool game!

Not to be the naysayer, but since it's flipperless, should it actually be on the list here?

Sorry, I thought the boys did it and haven't been on this weekend until now. I think I did it correctly, but let me know if anything needs to be changed.

I've got several games in my collection that aren't in the database here:

Williams Base Hit (1967) http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2900&picno=9869

Other pitch and bat games are listed, so I'm guessing it's just an oversight. Thought I'd mention it.

I've got these, too - both flipperless:

Jolly Joker (Williams; 1955) http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1310&picno=1241

There's a United Jolly Joker in the database, but that game supposedly doesn't exist. The Williams does, however.

Silver Cup (Genco; 1933) http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2146&picno=31530
