I just got this one shopped out and playing! I thought to my self this game is very fun, quirky, fast and I think deserves its own club!

She's quite beautiful! This is one my father has been looking for for a long while. It's one of his favorites and it has grown on me a lot. The first picture is a good depiction of what the whole playfield looked like then the after pictures, they don't really do it justice, but the blue and green alternating LEDs look really good!

How would you like to be a contestant on Ballys Game Show!

Nice. I have wanted one for years, and I never see them for sale in mich. I even got a nos pf. I could find a nos pf but not the game!

Thanks, I wasn't really looking for it... It just kinda showed up! And my father and I jumped on it!

And good luck on your search for one!

Not much of a club yet! I'm about to start shopping one of these out, but I'm missing the center ramp entrance gate. Anyone got a line on a replacement? I would love just a picture of how it's assembled along with the switch at least!

Is this a club? Is the game that rare on ownership or are Game Show owners the shyest people in the pinball community? Lol

I tried to like it. Played for a couple of hours on location & walked away hating it.
Perhaps it was just another poorly maintained route pin, I don't know.

It's the only pin remaining in my lineup. I'd love to add some more system 11's. They are my favorite era. It's a simple, yet clever pin that doesn't get enough love.

I own Game Show... I love the mirrored back glass. This game is a ton of fun and doesn't break the bank.

Love love love my Game Show. Easy, but so fun. I play it as much as Metallica. I'll never sell mine.

Just had an amazing game of Gameshow. 34 Mil.
I thought I'd bump this topic because this machine deserves more love.
Every machine needs and analog bell.

I think its the cheesest game ever and that may be why I enjoy mine so much. I found a near flawless beauty also.

I love the real alarm bell inside the cabinet when it goes off. It's loud and you can feel the entire game shake from it. Simple rules but the game play keeps me pushing the start button.

Sold mine 10 years ago, but here's a couple pics of playfield and backglass under blacklight. Fun Game.

Anyone of the Gameshow owners know where to get a spare “Car” drop target assembly? Even the opto board would work.

Does anyone has a source for the Car drop target sticker?

I need a new one.

Anyone knows if there is a newer software version as L-3. Since there are plenty of bugs. Some are game breaking. Also the game has some serious lags sometimes...

#17 1 year ago

Anyone have or know where I can get the right slingshot plastic? It's the only plastic broken in my game

I'd be happy to buy L&R set if anyone has both.

Let me know.
Thank You!

I parted out a Game Show a couple of years ago. I still have most of the mechs (not single car drop), targets, probably all the light boards, many switches, rats nest of playfield wiring. PM me if you need anything like that for your game.

I just purchased a game show and one part is not functioning properly. The car drop down opto was missing so I ordered a new one. How many times during normal game play does the car target drop to unlock the car shot? for some reason the new opto is not tripping when the car target it hit so either I have a faulty new opto or a wiring issue.

Thanks for any input

Hi all
I am making spinner decals for Bally/Williams stuff that have these holographic decals - many games from the 80's and 90's. In general they are $2.50 shipped in the US for a pair and $4.00 shipped international for a pair. Shipping stays the same if you buy more.

PM me if interested.

Joined the club today. Pretty cool game. Think it’ll stay around for a while. Guessing Ramps are impossible to find?

I'm in need of the insert decals. Anyone know where I can get those. Also any one having this issue. When my car drop target goes down, sometimes the ball gets stuck in the hole. It's rare but happens sometimes.
Thank YOU
