    Any newer pins with LCD's have a video mode?
    Use to enjoy them on my FT & BSD - simple and stupid but I sort of liked them

    Houdini has a couple of them, I think.

    Ghostbusters has two. Cross the streams and ESP.

    Liars Dice. Some sort of dice gambling game from the movie. I got to it once but didn't understand how to play. It was cool though, you could wager treasure and gold, etc

    Ben did a pretty cool retro 8-bit video mode for Rob Zombie.

    Liars Dice is fun once you understand it, but it is a game of chance. It shows one die with a value on it and your hand of dice. You have to bid how many dice there are in both hands that have the value of the one die shown. You can bid or call someone a liar if you think they bid too high. It's a game of chance since you don't know what the computer has in his hand.

    Example:

    Die shown is a 2

    Your dice hand has a 2, 2, 4, 2, 6 in it. Opponents hand is unknown. You know for a fact there are at least 3 2's since you have 3 in your hand. You could bet 3 and be safe if called a liar. You could bet 4 hoping that your opponent has at least one 2 in his hand. When you bid, the opponent either has to outbid you (in this case 3 3's or more) or call you a liar. When someone is eventually called a liar, both hands are revealed and you either win the prize you bet originally or you lose it.

    Example:

    You wager an extra ball. If you win, you get a EB for winning, but if you lose...you lose your ball so that ball ends right there immediately and you move onto your next ball if you have one, otherwise the game is over. High stakes for big rewards.

    lesmanley explained it perfectly. Same with extra ball, you can wager tilt warnings. You loose, instant tilt!
    Finally a video mode where your ball is actually in danger.

    Liars dice is a fun game to play in real life as well!

    Sadly they have not.

    It has only one, but it’s a pretty good one, and fully a game of skill, you can’t memorize it, etc.
