Reproduction backglass and wrong graphics on cabinet repaint but not a bad price.

#202 5 years ago

Thanks Dennis - something about that one was bugging me... I couldn't see the cables on the bridge, was gonna look it up to make sure my memory wasn't completely faulty. A great game!

Wow, it's weird - flipper pins are more expensive here on the West coast, but it seems like Bingo pins are almost free.
$100 Bingos are common.

Yup. In over 40 years of collecting bingos, I think the most I have ever paid for one is about $300.00. Most were free to about 100 bucks like you said.
There is a small resurgence happening, so get 'em while they're cheap!

Nick will only need ONE bingo in the near future!

#208 5 years ago

Surf Club in the St. Louis area. One of my favorite bingos. Hard to tell the condition on this one. If anyone is interested in it I would gladly check it out for you. Just a few miles away from me.

Yeah, it's cool, but he will be missing out on all of the cool mysterious mechanical sounds that the bingo pins make when they are doing their thing..

Quoted from dasvis:

Very true. If I remember correctly, Nick may be implementing that in the future. I know the virtual bingo site has all of the sounds associated with the game.

#211 5 years ago

Ha-ha! Working on graphics routines over here.... I'll post about sounds in the nearish future. It won't be the same, but I'll do what I can for authenticity. I think I finally cracked the nut of flashing lamps behind the title of the game!

Surf Club is one of my favorite bingos as well. I've only played it a handful of times, but I was very impressed with the features and potential for big wins! On top of all that it is a gorgeous game.

That half-dead gi shot with neon or LEDs or something in the background really doesn't show at all!

#212 5 years ago

Maybe put some stoppers & relays in the cabinet for the clicking and clicking noises.

#213 5 years ago

I've got relays in there, motors, coils, a bell, etc. Gonna add a replay register for the step up/step down sounds and stepper and control unit/mixer will be pre-recorded playback. There are a few different types of stepper, but because Bally used standardized parts, they mostly make the same sounds. I also need to play back trip relay sounds (or put a trip bank in the game....)

Wow, that's an interesting series of hacks.

It's a Barrel O Fun '61 or later that has had the name scraped.

OK, not so bad, happened occasionally. Now, let's take this to the next level. The game shipped with lighted scoring (which is why there are score values on the outside of the barrel and so forth)... let's add a replay register, too! And scrape some of the image off to put it there.

Super odd.

Does the lighted scoring still work? What happens on replay reset?

Also, the game will only take one coin according to the instructions. I assume one coin lights all six cards?

#223 5 years ago

I conflated the Fun Spot and Barrel O Fun '60something games - wonder if it was a Fun Spot? One coin will light all six cards if you have at least 5 replays on the register/backglass.

#224 5 years ago

ohhh, but it has a button on the front. Yeah, Barrel O Fun. Weird!

Same shorty legs added to the front in lieu of the spindle type.

Just picked up a game from a fellow yesterday in Indianapolis who has a High Flyer Bungo for sale ($250). If you need more info, let me know. Here's the description:

My Bally High Flyer has been sitting in the project queue taking up space for quite some time now and my video games always get more love. I think it needs a better home. It's an EM bingo pinball from 1977. It was sold to me as "non-working". I don't have the keys so I don't know the condition of the components inside. The game won't reset when plugged in so I'm guessing the reset coil is bad or the motors just need a good cleaning and lubrication. The back glass and play field are in great shape, the cabinet exterior is solid (no water damage) and will brighten up with a good cleaning. The chrome legs are pitted and need new leg levelers. This would be a great project for someone wanting to dabble in EM games or use the parts for other Bally pins from the same era. A pickup truck or open trailer preferred since I don't have the keys to remove the head from the body.

#245 5 years ago

High Flyer is a great six card from the 70s, and the first Bally six card with the red diagonal feature. This allows for scoring on the 'off numbers' on the card, meaning, the numbers which are not connected by the primary vertical, horizontal or diagonal.

It is also the first game that allows for toggling the super lines and corners scoring on all cards at once via rollover button, and includes the ascending scores per card, and double or nothing play when it detects a winner.

A very good game, and those that follow allow for really high scoring, but High Flyer has some great gameplay.

It has three search discs - one for each set of two cards - to accommodate the corners, red diagonals, and standard scoring on each card (each search disc is 50 positions).

This would be a great first game for someone - the mechanical components are not incredibly complex and the gameplay is fast and fun.

That's a super deal on an interesting game. That's technically 'next' for the multi, but I keep putting it off. Game with great art that looks like an interesting player. You earn only a trifle for your hits unless you enable the super score for the cards. Super score just enables the odds steps underneath. You can get a couple of extra balls to help, and enable super score on your next(!) game on a carry-over basis. Cool.
