    I'm talking about solid-state-with-chimes - the beginning of Bally's "golden era". Pins like Evel Knievel, Strikes & Spares, Eight ball, Bobby Orr, Captain Fantastic (whoops, shouldn't be on this list ..) etc. Which was king and which would be your second runner-up?

    #2 3 months ago

    Captain Fantastic is an EM.

    SS next.

    I’ll take EK.

    I've always had a thing for Eight ball. Guess its due to Fonzie and Pinky Tuscadero. And the spinner shot.

    #4 3 months ago

    Mata Hari with Night Rider as my runner up.

    #5 3 months ago

    Black Jack

    All of the two spinner chimes ballys are boring imo

    #6 3 months ago

    Skateball and Frontier.

    Or Frontier and Skateball.

    Edit- missed the must have chimes part. Gotta go with Stern Stars. Sorry, no Ballys in SS version with chimes would make the cut.

    centaur.... very close phatom. damn it so many to chose, 8bdl

    #8 3 months ago

    Lots of great ones. Fathom, EBD, paragon, centaur, and flash Gordon are my favorites.

    Please don't make me choose...

    How many Bally solid state games use chimes? Must be a short list on the cusp of EM solid state transition.

    Ah! I missed the "chime" part

    Just one early Bally, too hard! For play-ability, probably Mata Hari. For art/theme, Evel Knievel.

    #14 3 months ago

    EK. Never gets old.
