Glad everyone had fun and made it home safe! I hope no one went to jail after what happened at the Ramada with the cops. LOL

Good thing I didn't go this year. The windstorm caused some probloems at home. Almost 2 days without power and lots of clean-up and house inspection. It set me back in my work for the whole weekend.
Stage 5B. All except for NIB crap.

Wow !

I know of no other person in this community who could be a better custodian and caretaker for this beauty.

Congrats dude, another responsibility to manage. I am sure you can handle it.

Hugs,

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.

Thanks Rob. I'm glad you approve
With ownership comes responsibility.
I hope to have the game on display somewhere eventually.

For those unfamiliar with this kind of early pin game:

Ballyhoo: released in January 1932, over 50 000 units produced
Countertop model
It's literally just pins and balls. No flippers, no coils, no motors.
10 balls for 5 cents
The player adds up the score by hand
Ballyhole doubles the score
"It's heavy. What is it? ... The, uh, stuff dreams are made of"
-The Maltese Falcon

"Every ball for me's another game.For you this always looks the same [...]
I know for you this doesn't look a lot. For me this is the only thing I got"
-Yello - Pinball Cha Cha

"He who is tired of Weird Al is tired of life"
-Homer Simpson

Wanted: Bally 20 hole Bingo machine: Orient, London, Safari, Super 7, Bonus 7 or Hawaii.
Bally: Gator, Mad World
Williams: Pot 'O' gold
Rally Play Company of Nice France: Any Flip Tronic(s) era machine produced between 1966 and 1969

I'm happy with my new Allentown addition. And a new bingo enthusiast is born! I bought this beauty from Nick Baldridge (he of the For Amusement Only Podcast, and Multi-Bingo programming fame).

It made the trip back home home safely with only a few minor adjustments needed to get it working properly. It has a NOS playfield installed, and looks/plays great. I'm still suprised how BIG these machines are in person. And it was my first time moving one of these thing...f*cking heavy to boot. I've wanted a bingo ever since digesting Mr. Baldridge's podcast, and reading through JF's posts here on MAACA about the upkeep, gameplay and history of the machines. JF brought one to the Church's swap meet a year or so back, and it was the first time I played a bingo--I was hooked. I waited for the right one to pop up (right features, right condition, right price) and when Nick offered Night Club, I acted.

Now that I have my first, I can start the search for the second. And third. Maybe JF can help with that?

Somebody has Bingo Fever! :-)
Nice score, that's one clean looking Night Club. Purchased from a very reputable seller.
Second and third game... that depends on what you are looking for.
BTW I have a Night Club reproduction plexiglass backglass if you want to give your machine that lurid over the top carnival look.

Miami Beach? But hard to tell since I've not played many, though. I thought in the bingo collector community (especially in Canada) you have take what's available, not what you WANT. I'm open to suggestions ;)

Get a Magic Screen game with the Red letter / OK feature. It'll change your life
