Hi
ipdb "Flip Flop" has "Ratings and Comments", overall rating of (only (?) 6.8): http://www.ipdb.org/rate/showrate.pl?gid=889 --- BUT - GAME-PLAY: "10 out of 22 raters say Game-Play is "8" or "9" or "10" ". Flip Flop IS A GOOD PIN.

The "worst pin" I know is "Bally Ro Go" - BUT, http://www.ipdb.org/rate/showrate.pl?gid=1969 : "6 out of 18 raters say Game-Play is "8" or "9" or "10" " ...

NO EM-Pin is eligible in a "B"-List. Now comes a joke - No need to make "A-List" and "B-List" on SS-Pins --- the only ones beeing in my "A-List" would be the Gottlieb-Sys-1 Pins ...
(((I like my Gtb-Sys1 pins - would prefer to have the EM-Version))) Greetings Rolf

P.S.: I do not like the "open inlane" in Flip Flop - I may be tempted to mount a wireformed "one-direction gate" as used on my Shangri La: http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2110&picno=23477&zoom=1 --- see top-left - the ball can pass from left to right. A friend of mine owns a "Chicago Coin Juke Box" - a preowner set TWO NAILS (one left and one right) as here is set "for sure one is set on the left": http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1324&picno=11747&zoom=1

Quoted from dasvis:

yes, it's just you. Face it, they suck.

I don't think they're too difficult unless they have two additional cams. You have to be very fine to get them to work right because each cam adds additional drag to the rotating assembly. Once dialed in properly, they're usually fairly trouble free in a home use environment.

Correct. The ones with multiple switches are a bitch to get just right.

I really like the "chicks" on Dick White's backglasses! I often wonder if he was being a wiseass in response to hearing that his art doesn't have enough chicks in it.
Would love to find me a nice "Flip Flop". Very attractive game, and fun to play as well.

Not from an EM pin
but here is my Favorite Cocktail pin

I think it's the only game he actually drew women on.

Some sources say that Dick White
also did the artwork on BLY Hang Glider (which has chicks in bikinis on it)
but looks more like C. Marche work to me.

Game Plan Vegas is signed by Dick White (on the Playfield under the apron)

There is a nice gal on Old Coney Island by Dick White...
