Not to jinx... but this could be a good day.

Let's hope so, in order
for another player to get his own Big Game.
Sad to see the thread end though. Maybe keep it going as a "finally tracked one down" continuation!?

#52 7 months ago

We'll see. I'm hopefully but you know how these things go. If this one happens, it will have a fun story to go with it.

#54 7 months ago

Saw that... I'm not a fan of the alteration.

#55 7 months ago

There is an outside chance I'll have one for sale just before Allentown. I am working a deal on another group of machines and it has a Big Game in the lot. I will not know anything more about it for about 2 months because I am not suppose to hook up with the seller until sometime in early April. If you have not finalized a deal on one by then check in with me for possible Allentown delivery.

Thanks Skip!

Yeah, me neither. But, figured it was worth mentioning! The search continues... Hopefully too-many-pins will help bring your search to a happy conclusion!

To be truthful, I don’t even Think it’s that special… But Goodnuf for an adventure

If your Kentucky thing does not work here is a Big Game for sale in Iowa. CRappy pics and an idiot seller who has it listed as "Safari Pinball Machine".

desmoines.craigslist.org link

He had the ad up several months ago and I called him. He wants $1000.00. I told him better pics and he acted offended I would even ask.

I offer this ad for what it is worth.

Stop number one was to pick up some Bourbon... and I was bummed to find out that two shops were out of Blantons... both said supply has been limited on purpose (which is what my local shop in Metro DC has told me). Real bummer, because they also told me they sell it for $55. Back home - $80-$85!

Honestly, not really... the backglass is flaking more than I had thought. But that’s a non-issue for me (I’m planning on getting a Repro or getting it restored).

Playfield looks pretty darn good (as pictured in that Facebook ad). Rest of game looks like a good condition routed 1980 game

The lowest left flipper is non-responsive. The owner had installed a new coil to no effect. So, that’s my first order of business. Also, the entire top section of back box lights appears to be out.

The sellers were really nice folks. Nice to meet them.

I’m 100% happy with it, though. Hunting for this game has been fun - and committing to making the trek was a nice little escape from the grind. Know what I mean?

I think this one is going to clean up really well. Unfortunately, it’s going to take me a week or so to free up time to dig in, but I’m really looking forward to it!

Can’t wait to see it!

Thanks again for looking out for me... made for a fun journey. No wonder Kentucky has a town named Wurtland!

Congratulations on the find!

Holly Shit! I didn't realize you were going to Kentucky for your Big Game. You are a fucking wildman! For some reason I thought it was Ohio. Congrats pal!!! LOL. That's awesome!

Congrats! The reds on this glass are almost always faded and flaking. It’s really tough to find one in decent shape. Do they make a repro for it?

LOL... a lot of this was about having a quick little adventure. I was pretty burned out heading into the new year and pledged to dial back a little and seek out opportunities for some unique fun. Sure - I probably could have waited for something closer to home. Maybe... but, this little two-day trip window popped up and I couldn’t resist. If it hadn’t worked out with the seller’s schedule, it probably wouldn’t have happened )

Yes... got up at 4 am... home by 12. But then had to head down toward DC. Which was PAINFUL. LOL... could barely make myself get back into the truck.
