Picking this up for $300-400 what do you think? . I love multiple slingshot games. It hasn't been played in years. Has some wear but hardly ever see these and like Dimension and Top Card, have 2 sets of slingshots. These up by the much needed roll-overs are placed perfectly

Too funny. You’ve found 2 games that we’ve also got in our collection. This is another good one. I think that’s a great price. It can take a while to clean those rollover buttons, but I’m told the ultrasonic cleaner is the right tool for the job. The center post adds a dimension. Sometimes you gotta be patient with the flipper to let the post catch the ball, rather than letting it sneak by. Other times the ball will hit the button to drop the post on its way to draining.

Congratulations, nice pick up at a great price. I have been trying to find one close for years, but they always seem to come up for sale on the East Coast. The four slingshots really speed up the action on these earlier WMS games. Love them on my Paddock.

This one looks pretty clean and not too far.

I say go for it. I'd been looking for one for 25+ years in Australia, and there's none to be had. Ended up having to import one from the US from a Pinsider.

It's the game that got me hooked on pinball as a 10 year old. Those extra slingshots make it really fast!

This game is frustrating, which gives it that, 'One more time Quality'. While playing that Down Post roll over, will drop the post allowing for a between the flipper ball drain. Those bowling pins in the backglass light up as well, as the ball rolls over the buttons on the playfield.

Hey there! Got a moment?
