I've been slowly working on my #brazil and when I bring people over to look at it, they are always blown away by the complexity of the whole "keeps track of balls, scores, etc. using wheels and gears instead of chips" thing.

I know nothing about EM Pinballs, do they have more complex workings or are the Bingos the most complex?

The bingos are far more complex than EM flipper games or pre-war EM games. The case can be made that they are far more complex than most solid state games as well.

I also find them to be fairly easy to work on in comparison (most things are modular, more things flip out or up). But it's the same basic building blocks: steppers, relays and motors.

All EM games eventually boil down to getting the electricity to flow the way the designer intended. Bingos just have a lot more to track than a flipper game.

You're doing great work on that backglass. I wish I had a better image to give you than the little one that I'm using.

LOL To me Bingo's are second nature unlike my friend Nick he fix almost anything. Fully electronic games call nick EM flippers I'm ok as well. Don't forget I am still looking for a Brazil.
