Subject line basically says it all.

Someone from France was asking on the EM Pinball FB page about needing to get 20 interested people in a Wade Space Walk playfield. Being so few Space Walk were originally produced it seemed like quite the stretch.

It got me thinking Count-Down had a ton made and the playfields can get pretty worn. So maybe the interest is there.

Is it just me or are there another 15-20 folks that would go for a Wade Krause repro Count-Down playfield?

It’s a game with a regularly worn playfield. I haven’t even spoken to him about this but I bet we can get in line with Wade if we get enough commitment. And getting the rights should be a slam dunk from the Gottlieb rights holder.

But it’s going to take enough commitment from enough people that think this much of this title to spend this kind of dough on the game.

Tell all your friends and have them respond here.

Quoted from slochar:

In a Backglass as well, these are always toast.... really thin screening on the originals.

This would be your best bet. I'm probably in for one also if the playfields get made.

I spoke with Wade right after I started this list and he responded positively, saying he hopes the interest ramps up, and that it's a great game and the art is really cool.

I'm sure there are at least 10 others out there that we just need to find that haven't stumbled on this thread.

Tell all your pinball friends.

So what's the status here?

Status is I need to repost so this goes to the top of the list and others see it.

Are there any additional folks interested in signing on for a Count Down playfield?

I already have Wade's interest that he would run this title. Obviously it could be a year or two before it gets run but it is a very popular title and there are many examples that could use a new playfield.

Count Down is one of the most addictive drop target games out there and it deserves a playfield that will look as good and play as fast as the day it was new.

Let us know.
