Let me know what you have in terms of price and condition.

Thanks!

Anyone?

These are really hard to find and it seems like they stay in a collection when folks finally find one.

While I'm sure you wouldn't mind shipping one, it might help to know where you are, just in case someone local to you has one.

Dave -- thanks for your comment. I would be willing to ship. I am located in Arizona.

This ad is a month old but could be a potential lead.

I don't have the title's you asked for but just in case you are interested i have a Bally Melody Roll, 1948. Melody was there first flipper game with same layout on play field as Melody Roll minus the shooter lane. Open to offers. Would prefer to be checked out and picked up in person. Pic off my game are on internet pinball database.
Good luck

Quoted from haiderdj:

Would also consider other nickel flippers -- Skill Parade, Skill Score, Skill Derby, or Lite-A-Diamond.
Thanks!

Spell Roll correctly and maybe we'll talk to ya

#11 5 years ago

Lite a diamond I believe does not exist in the wild.

To me Skill Roll is the only one that actually required skill. The others are pure chance. Roll is definitely worth owning over the others.

I would agree. It's funny though as you would think the others would be more common as most want Skill Roll first and foremost. Skill Roll is tough to find but you virtually never see the other Bally Skill games for sale.

Skill Derby may not be the most fun to play but it sure does have charisma.

#14 5 years ago

I want this one too, but I've resolved to build one from scratch because they are hard to find.
Shouldn't be too hard to build, but its way down on my list projects.

I think nickel flippers will be the hardest part to come up with. Thought about using flipper bats as the handles and use the pawl/plunger with a spring for power to hit the nickel. The rest is just wood, switches, lights, and an Arduino to control the logic.

The payout functionality may be a headache too but I'm sure I can figure it out.

Pat - thanks for the spell check. I am looking for a Skill Roll.

Please keep the leads coming! The one on craigslist sold already.

Coinopwarehouse had a couple Skill Score games within the last two weeks, $950 each, IIRC.

There's a Skill Parade for $850 here:

Thanks DirtFlipper! I'll have to check them out.

#20 5 years ago

Here's another one....a little rough so I would ask for a better price.
Where are you located hairderdj?

Jodini - thanks a lot for the lead.

I am located in Phoenix, Arizona.

#22 5 years ago

I think at the price the guy in Milwaukee is asking for that game, it's going to be sitting for a while.

Where are you located - makes people respond. Kevin at classicpinball.com has a bromley.

#26 5 years ago

I had a bromley for sale for almost a year and no one bit. I swear the thing was cursed, music still haunts me. Good riddance, it hasn't been missed once......by anyone.
In other news, I happen to own a skill roll!

Still looking.

Who else loves skill games?

#28 5 years ago

I think many people love them, which is why you don't see them for sale very often...

Been trying to convince Topo to get rid of two of his nickel flippers. He has the full set of 4, but as it's already been said Skill Roll is the only skill game among the 4. The Skill Derby is cute for a couple of games and you can sort of control the game by nudging it when the nickel passes through your horses number to try and keep it in play longer.
