So recently I've really really had a lot of fun with Bally machines from around ~1986 to ~1989. I noticed because I had always enjoyed unique games like for instance when they did the magic save on Dungeons & Dragons and Hardbody. Then I had the chance to play an Atlantis, and just loved the rules, the use of the stopper, and really played it a ton.

It wasn't until I found a Truck Stop at a location the other day that I thought... wait... all of these pins that I'm liking are similar. Then the obvious tell was they were all these single line scored Bally machines.

I decided to take a look and see what other machines they made in this time frame, but I quickly realized that it's really hard to search for that!

There are a ton of different wikipedia sites that have incomplete information like:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:1987_pinball_machines -> doesn't have any of the Ballys
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bally_Manufacturing -> this one is missing a Atlantis and Truck Stop

I do a lot of searches around
"complete list of bally pinball machines"
"pinball machines made in 198*"

I know this info is out there somewhere, but it's tough to sift through it all. I don't suppose someone can point me to a list that is complete...?
