Baffle Ball

Baffle Ball

The first Pinball-Game by D.Gottlieb & Co.

Designed by David Gottlieb.

5-10 colored balls would be launched, one at a time and you need to try and land the balls into a saucer to score the points shown (double if the ball is the same color as the saucer.) The baffle ball hole, if landed, doubles the score for the entire game unless another ball knocks it out. Small point amounts were at the bottom of the playfield for the balls that didn't land in the saucers. Score had to be calculated manually as no score reels existed at the time.
