Awesome job reviving a thread that was dormant for 18 months.
Yeah...everyone was so annoyed by this that they started replying to it.
I think it's a super fun game actually. Played a couple days on it with my nephew every day for a week when near Flippers in Grandy, NC, this past November. Like any old-style pin it "totally sucks" when you just play a game on it. But when you actually spend a few games, figure out the rules, and work on some strategies and start to score higher, it's fun and rewarding.
It was the first Herc in good shape I'd played and it was really fun. The only other I'd tried was the one at Hershey Park and it's not really playable.
The novelty factor doesn't hurt...it's QUITE a novelty. But it comes down to "was that game fun and worth 25 cents" and it surely was.
