Item description

Exceptional game, super fast, boards were already repaired and rebuilt by Brian Foytik in Houston, who knows Zacc boards. Batteries moved off the board. This is the european version with the full nipple-age, not the red/green dress that they sent to us American prudes. The game won Best Original at Texas Pinball Festival 2017, and I have the plaque to prove it. There's no LEDs stinking it up. It's got the original neon, and the original playfield glass with the sandblasted ZZZ Zaccaria logo on it! Cabinet is in GREAT condition, very sturdy, and only very minor wear along the top edge of the head. See pictures. Game was cleaned and waxed just prior to Texas Pinball Festival in March and hasn't been played much since then. Even has the original cash box. =Þ

Has English voices, I have the supposed ROM files for the Italian ones if you want to burn some chips and put them back in there. There is one chipped plastic, unfortunately, and the coin door is missing one of the test buttons. You can currently get into and advance through the adjustments and go backwards, but not modify the settings AFAIK. Believe it only needs something to sub as basic button, but we all know finding an original switch is going to be impossible, so I'm mentioning it for clarity's sake. Game is on free play anyways.

Displays are bright and clear. Sounds are great. I'll try to get a video uploaded to youtube soon. I'm willing to ship BUT: I am not going to be personally responsible for the condition of the insert or the neon tube, or anything that happens to them during shipping. I can pack a game like a tank but I have no clue how to prep those parts of the game for shipping via truck...it's just not something I know how to do. If someone wants to buy the game and pick it up in the future, or at Texas Pinball Festival...I'm quite okay being storage for a few months. I'd like to have the space right now, but I'll do this to make a deal happen.

The price is pretty much non-negotiable however, and the TPF plaque stays with me. It doesn't have the game's name on it anyways, and I doubt I'll ever have a nice enough game to win 'best original condition' ever again!

Smeg, I knew I forgot something.

There's a small metal Bally Aladdin's Castle plate on one corner of the cabinet. You wouldn't want to remove it. I'll get a pic of that tonight. I like it, because it's history of the game, but I understand if it makes it less desirable for someone.

Frax, did you just write smeg! Glad to know there is another Red Dwarf fan in the U.S. I got into that show in the early 90's, I can't believe they are making new episodes! I want this game, but everything I find is half a country away. GLWTS. Big fan of Zaccaria. I've been looking for a Shooting the Rapids for years, or a Circus or a Mystic Star!

Somebody buy this game. You are NEVER going to fine another like this one! And I don't know the seller, I remember the game and it's gorgeous!

I really want that holy crap! I love every trippy inch save for the perv bits because you can't love those just have to live with it pinball

New Red Dwarf!?! I've been under a rock because the last Red Dwarf I saw was the Back to Earth special. 2 new seasons and a 3rd airing soon!? Christmas in September.

Oh, and GLWS. Potential buyers: I've seen this game in person and it is beautiful!

It's a good time to be a boy from the dwarf!

Beautiful game! Where is the neon tube in the machine and what is the insert you state being concerned about if the machine is shipped?

The neon tube is behind the backglass and in front of the plastic molded insert (the girl....that whole part is a big molded plastic piece. The only art on the backglass itself is really around the outer edge.).

Look here for a picture of just an insert: http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=824&picno=25703&zoom=1

A few have expressed interest in PM, so I'm handling things in order of offers. Please note: At this time, I can't accept any trade offers, unless they're local and it's something I'm REALLY interested in, like a Night Moves. I'm using this money for something non-pinball related, and I need space also, so at least one of my games has got to go.

Marking this as sale pending for now!
