Regarding the price, I’m selling this for “Best Offer”.

I recently posted 5 other games for sale, and frankly, I did not do a very good job with the prices. Some were too low, and some were too high. Interestingly, the MM prototype fetched a higher price than I expected. While that specific one was rare because it’s a prototype, in general MM/MMR games are not entirely uncommon. So if you look at it solely from the pin title perspective, that MM wasn’t a particularly rare title.

In contrast, BBB is an extremely rare game, with only about 191 of them on the entire planet.

What about remakes? Personally, I don’t see how anyone who has played the game for an hour would think that there could be a BBB remake in today’s hyper-sensitive politically-correct climate. The game has far too much gratuitous sexuality. We live in a world where “Manholes” are now “Maintenance Holes”, and the mail gets delivered by the “Mail Person”. Even Dr. Suess books are coming under fire these days. All the gratuitous sexuality in BBB is far more than a gaming company could easily justify and defend. The world will need to get by with just the existing 191 games.

Note that other BBB’s have been posted for sale, but frequently games like this sold so quickly that you never actually had a chance. If the first time you see the ad, it’s already sold, you’re no closer to owning a BBB. The question isn’t “How many times have you seen a BBB for sale?”. Rather, the question is “How many times have you seen a BBB that wasn’t already sold?”.

Therefore, with respect to price, I made the price high enough that hopefully the first time you see this ad it won’t already be sold. LOL This means that unlike some other BBB sales, I’m trying to give everyone a chance to buy it. If you’re interested in the game, feel free to make me an offer.

If you’ve never seen a BBB, or never seen one being played, please follow the link above to the pictures and videos. The pictures include a 3-page article about BBB from Pinhead Classified in 1997, with lots of great info. The videos include over 30 minutes of game play (showing both the playfield and screen).

_________ Watch the game being played! You will be blown away. ___________

I am the original owner, and as with all the pins I have been selling recently, I rarely played the game. I loved owning them, but I didn’t play very often. (Partly because I’m not a very good player, which is partly because I didn’t play very often. Go figure.) Anyway, I wish pinball machines had an “odometer”, because it would show an amazingly low number of plays.

If you want more pictures of anything specific, please let me know. Also, I’m happy to answer any questions.
