    Game was offered to me from a friend,and it’s in good shape all around. Is it worth the trouble.I would not get it to make a few bucks. I’m a pinball fan with a big collection of pins.Any thoughts. Thanks

    Well, when your friend asks you to repay the favor, and bump off his nagging ex......

    If you have the space why not? I don't really care for bingo games but I'd take a free one to mess with until I was bored. Then make a few bucks or pay it forward and give it to someone else.

    Never saw the point of having a bingo pin to be honest. But this is free, so....

    Just bring your Power Lifter belt when you carry the Backbox. Lots of stuff in there!

    ****** Very Nice looking artwork on this bingo. ********
    1. I hope you have the key for the Backglass.
    2. You will need a good supply of Bulbs for the backglass being a 6 Card Bingo.
    Let us know how you make out.

    No, it’s not worth the trouble.

    It’s heavy and you won’t like moving it.

    It takes up space and you won’t be able to get that last pin you want.

    You won’t be able to get rid of it. Why do you think it’s free.

    Take it!! You can always make room...

    #11 11 days ago

    Take it, or give it away to someone else who’s interested. There are fans of bingo games.

    I agree with you,I’ll make sure it doesn’t end up in the dumpster.

    If only I was a teensy bit closer.

    #14 11 days ago

    Never refuse anything that’s free !

    You are going to need a shit load of bulbs ....

    and I want to ask Black_Knight how he Knows !!

    #15 11 days ago

    When these bingo machines light up they are beautiful...It’s for free so buying bulbs for it shouldn’t keep you away from taking it

    Some of you guys need to broaden your horizons!!!
    Bingos are great. Sure, they are harder to fix and not as
    much action as flipper pins but learning how they work and
    restoring one is a blast. Got my first one for free and now have 5.
    Few pinheads have seen or experienced a *working* bingo
    so a nice thing to add to the line up.

    They were used for gambling..the operator and owner of the establishment would pay out money if someone got bingo.This was a huge money maker for owners who put them in their place of business and people would dumb boatloads of money trying to get bingo and if they did the owner would pay out cash to the winner

    #18 11 days ago

    Free...is Free.
    I have 4, its completely fucking crazy learning experience. Buy an oil can.

    #19 11 days ago

    Yes! Clean it up and play it for a while. Move it along when you get bored of it....I got one of these “simpler” games and everyone loves it.

    Yes. Nashville has quite a bit to recommend it if you like quick games with a bit of strategy.

    This was the first game with the Magic Number feature, and is quite a bit more reliable than Dixieland, which came after.

    Simple rules - one coin per card, 3/4/5 in a row on -any- selected card to win. Yes, you can win on multiple cards, just like regular bingo.

    Extra features like super lines and corners can be enabled for alternate (high) scoring, and the magic number feature allows you to pocket a single ball to double your score in some cards.

    Free is always good. It's a fun, challenging game and fixing them is relatively easy if you are patient and ask questions. All documentation for the game is available online. Go for it.

    I grew up playing bingo machines at the bowling alley. I would jump at the chance of a free one.
