For sale: Strange World

Added: August 29th, 2019 Ended: September 28th, 2019
Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

For sale is my super cool Strange World! The game is 100% working and re-rubbered. Cleaned and waxed the playfield.

The cabinet is very nice with the odd mark but nothing major at all. The paint on the cabinet has great, original colors. No planking on the cabinet whatsoever.

The Backglass is extremely nice with no flaking, cracking or chipping.

The playfield has some wear, especially around the middle inserts. It is still very presentable and plays great! A number of the inserts are loose and I chose not to glue them back in because the next owner might want to touch up the wear and would likely remove the inserts anyways. There is also light planking throughout on the playfield but the Artwork seems solid. Wade Krause is making this playfield this year according to his website.

Comes with original manual and schematics.

I would have loved to have kept this rare/unique machine but I just purchased the game I’ve always wanted (TAF) and it wasn’t free! Haha! Have to sell a few of my older titles to raise funds.

Local sales or buyer pickup is ideal but I understand that’s not always possible. I am willing to palletize and crate the game and deliver it to Fastenal in Grand Forks, ND for $150 USD to pay for supplies (straps, wrap, blankets, plywood, etc.), fuel and my 7 hour round-trip. The buyer would have to arrange and pay Fastenal for shipping from Grand Forks. There is a rumor that an “import fee” of $20 might be charged when I bring it across the border as well. Seeing as it was originally manufactured in the States, I’m hoping the import fee would be waved.

Payment via bank wire transfer is ideal and would have to clear before the delivery to Grand Forks can begin. I would likely accept PayPal “friends and family” or International Money Order as well as long as there aren’t any big fees.

I’m an easy guy to chat with so send me a message if you need anymore info and specific pics! I also have many pinsiders as references if you need to check in.

Price is in US Dollars.

Thanks and have a great day!

Really surprised this one hasn't sold yet. These don't grow on trees!

Fun game too. Finally got to play one at Silverball in Del Ray.

#15 8 months ago

erico201 was super awesome in working with me but something else came up so I can't buy it right now, unfortunately. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with him again in the future.

Most rare games are rare for a reason, but this one is actually fun! Super unique layout and cool art. WIWC.

The "rare for a reason" goes out the window when you are talking late 70s EMs. They simply weren't making many of them anymore by this point, fewer and fewer by the month.

#18 8 months ago

Amazing art on this one, I really like the rules and lots of unique shots. Very good game.

#19 8 months ago

Sale pending! Thanks for all of the kind words regarding this gem of a game! Looks like Wichita, Kansas is about to get a little “strange” in the next few weeks!

So true! I have one, you have two, my friend wade just sold his in June AND a colleague of mine who isn’t a pinhead also has one! He’s owned it for over 30 years!!
