Catacomb: Well, at least I've got the manual now..

Postby DrDude » Thu May 18, 2017 9:54 am

Couldn't resist picking this up when I saw it for a very reasonable price, and in excellent condition:

It's even got Tony's autograph! Now I just need the game that goes with it! (hint-hint)

...AND the manual is missing the all-important schematics (or rather, it has 4-pages of loose schematic pages from Evel Knievel). Le *sigh*

Actually, it almost looks like there _were_ no schematics. Anyone else with a Catacomb manual? Does yours have schematics?

Send me your email and I'll send you Catacomb schematics pdf file.

... or maybe you just want original hard-copy. Don't have that either.

Great game. Challenging! I think I've only finished the 'toast' twice since ownership.

Btw, I provided Pinball Pimp with cabinet scans for stencils, among others: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic ... st-2958563 8-)

The PDF is on IPDB.org, so I have that no problem, but thanks for offering.

Why are there twin Catacombs in that picture? A rare sight indeed!

Oh, forgot to check IPDB. Assumed the files were missing.

My first Catacomb was decent, imho, and did touch-ups but another Catacomb with a better playfield showed up. Wanted to improve this keeper pin. HPR Pinball bought my first!

BTW, the EK schematics are free to anyone who wants them, and can be picked up at Pincon, so PM me and I'll have Robi bring them. Not a complete set, but still useful and original.

I picked up a Catacomb earlier in the year, and it's a game I keep returning to. It is by far the most difficult game in my collection.

I've done some digging to try and nail down a production number for Catacomb. Of the classic Sterns, only Catacomb and Split Second don't have a confirmed production number that was taken from actual Stern Electronics company records (this was done by Jay Stafford of the IPDB). Pinside and the Mr. Pinball Price Guide list Catacomb at 3,943 units. There is a real good chance this number is wrong. Given the submitted serial numbers from the Internet Pinball Serial Number Database, I would guess the actual number would be in and around 1,000 units (putting the game in Star Gazer territory for total number of units produced).
