Mystic does not seem to get the love as some of the other early Bally's do. . . but I really like mine.

Drop targets, spinners, kickout saucer, captive ball. . . plus several different strategies to shoot for at once.

My playfield is a bit worn, hoping a replacement or even a hardtop comes available someday.

Just playing some last week, love the game and would like to own one. You'd think it has low production numbers how little you hear aboot it but it really doesn't.

#3 28 days ago

Let me know if you ever come across an early production (no sticker) backglass.

#4 28 days ago

I have one with the 3D insert for the backglass. It is super cool.

Same here. I'm just missing the black circular insert that goes between the glass and the inset picture.

You mean the light board on the metal rails to illuminate the insert between eyes and pyramids. Its actually has 4 control lamps on it. Pretty easy to make.

Mystic is a fun game, have had 2 so far. Both with the 3D inserts. Great spinner sounds when they are lit!

No, there was a long skinny (cardboard?) piece that was bent into a circle and stuck in the hole on the front of the light panel so you couldn't see the white light panel through the hole in the glass.

Just noticed that CPR has Mystic Playfields "In Production" on their website. . . maybe it was always there but now I have more reason to pay attention.

My playfield has quite a bit of wear so I will be glad for the option. Count one more sign up for preorder.

#10 11 days ago

Very fun game! (Let's keep the secret). I'm hoping to find one in Allentown.

#11 11 days ago

They had playfield and glass art in the works for many years. Not sure when/if it'll see the light of day.

Kevin sent an email asking if we are committed on the field. I said absolutely.!!! Can't wait one of my favorite games of all time.

Does your game have the center of the backglass with the eye on it.? The piece of mylar on the glass? or just a hole.

Just the hole. Mine is #25. In fact, it was YOU that told me I was missing the black piece. I just went searching for a pic of it and saw.

Yup. Great searching. You need that

Trying to get my Mystic presentable enough to take to the Ohio Pinball Show next month. Pulled the drop mechs to give everything a good cleaning -- a before/after pic of the drop targets:

Also just finished installing a new rectifier board from PBR. The old one had several wiring hacks and I was experiencing complete loss of GI.

Any more info you can give me to fabricate one? Measurements? Material?

Can I ask a favor to anyone with a Mystic Manual with the schematics? I've been using a Silverball Mania manual and it has worked thus far, but I doubt the playfield inserts are the same.

My 3X Bonus lamps were not working, yet test fine with a direct lamp test under the playfield. Trying to trace the path back to the lamp driver board and would like to know which J connector and pin on that connector are specific to those (3X) inserts.

Thanks for any help!

Fixed my issue by tracing wires.

When I had bought this game the GI was not working. Somehow I did not notice this until after I had it home -- amazing what gets overlooked when the excitement of obtaining a new pin kicks in. The old rectifier board looked rough. The GI connectors were burned and the wires had been removed/soldered directly to the pins on the back of the board. A new board from Pinball Resource is now in place:

The new board and repining connectors (everywhere!) fixed my lack of Illumination!

I also made a new light baffle for the eye/pyramid lights on the backbox panel. The original (sitting on/above my new piece in the picture) stuck out far enough that it actually made significant contact with the backglass -- so much that it put pressure on the glass when it was installed. I thought taking the stress of the glass might be a good idea. . . if nothing else it makes me feel better.

Must have played 20? 30? games in the last two or so days. Hard to walk away!

Still have several things on the to do list. Next up will be updating the 5V and High Voltage components on the Solenoid Driver Board.
