    Doing some research for a presentation I'm preparing, and stumbled across a very late flipperless pin-- Bally's Fun Cruise (1965, with a 1966 reissue) http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=963. Is this the last flipperless ever made?

    Fun Cruise and Gay Cruise, I believe. Along with all the bingo games.

    Can you consider the Gottlieb games such as Bell Ringer, NudgeIt and Bullseye as pinballs?

    *I* wouldn't consider them pinballs. What do you guys think?

    The Belgian bingo pinballs that are still produced today.

    I'm almost inclined to say that a pinball is any game that uses a ball and plunger, scores points, and does not redeem anything.

    I feel like nudge it and bell ringer are predominantly designed to be redemption games, and not really a pinball machine, therefore I wouldn't really classify them as being a flipperless pinball.

    I seem to recall Roger Sharpe working on a flipperless pin concept not so many years ago. Might have been a redemption piece though. Maybe his kids can chime in on this.
