I played this in an arcade. It wasn’t in great shape, but I love the theme. Getting extra balls instead of free games extends the game play which I like.

Game makes you a better shooter using the smaller flippers.

Another Classic Gottleib game that keeps on giving. Ed Krynski is the MAN!

The Pros:
An open PF that has a surprising amount of play for its vintage. How can a game this old be so FAST? Getting the central target ladder matched and scored is always a challenge and satisfying when hit. You know what's behind the doors on the BG, but seeing that Tuba always cracks me up. Light up your bumpers from the top lanes and let her rip! The Art Steinholm package is solid all around and the subtleties of his artwork bloom for those who care to take the time and effort to soak it all in.

The Cons:
Good luck finding one. I prefer the scoring model that Cross Town offered, which is a bit unusual for me as I usually love AAB's. But that's how I feel about this deck.

The Takeaway:
Simple, but never easy with the temptation of achieveability is the hallmark of a game created by Gottlieb's design team. This game is too much fun and lining up the score/special and hitting it is always satisfying. Goofball tuba players always crack me up! This game's layout is identical to Flipper Fair designed in 1961 and credited to Wayne Neyens... Little differences in the rules make the big differences in a pinball game.

Classic AAB. Three ways for a free ball. Match the yellow and red lights, put out the rollovers or get a high score.

The details in the rules keep you coming back.

The artwork is funky 1960s Mad Men. I fell in love with this game the first time I played it years ago and it's still got it going on.
