Also in !

My first pinball. I'm restoring it right now but I won't do crazy stuff, just make it nice and playable.
You're spot on regarding the "over-the-top love". I would not have gone through the trouble of restoring a machine if it wasn't for this particular one.

Since we can share our missing Nine ball parts in this club, is there someone here who knows where I could find one of those brackets that hold the bottom of the playfield below the lockbar. One of mines is broken, and it breaks my heart.

Quoted from mof:

I would recommend asking in the 2518 club, since someone may have an extra from another game.

Thanks for the advice mof.

I build a home-made one with two small shelf braces and a bolt, I'll see how it works when I put the playfield back into the cabinet (in a few days).

Quoted from singlebanana:

Bowen did a nice tutorial as well:
ยป YouTube video

Well he seemed a bit confused at one point ... "I don't know, I don't understand this game" to quote him.

I made a Visual Pinball recreation of this table some time ago (check it out !) so I've got a good grasp of the rules : they're not really complicated and are quite well covered in the various videos posted here.

A few things :
- the inlanes or the dead bumper that advance the bonus when lit are lit at random during the game (there's a switch to make it more or less frequent), usualy 2 out of 3, and will strobe between the 3 when the spinner spins. They will not be lit when you have to shoot the 8 or 9 target.
-the 8 target is tough to get by a direct shot, but you can reach it with a bank shot through the spinner (as well as the lock).
-shooting the spinner when the 9 target strobes through the eight lights will accelerate the rate of the strobing. Try your luck at getting the 9 by doing a bank shot through the spinner.

I read on the Internet Pinball Database that the inspiration for the wizard design on our beloved pinball machine came from the art on a t-shirt. This t-shirt is reproduced in Roger Sharpe's 1977 book "Pinball!", but I don't have it.

I found this t-shirt art on the internet, from Roach Studios, dated 1974. Is this it ? Certainly looks like it.
