I pulled out a Midway Extra Bases cocktail out of storage this morning. Debating what to do with it. Here is a nice one:

So, mine has been stored in shitty conditions. The steel panels holding the trackballs are rusted, I found 2 mice skeletons in the coinbox, an insane amount of mouse poop in the cab bottom, and the board box is quite corroded. I have no idea if it even remotely works. I have to take a real good look at everything.

Is it a great theme? Meh. Baseball. It's ok. But I don't want to convert or part out a game just for shits and giggles...

So, more on that gem in the spring.

I played Wizard of Wor and drank beer.

I can confirm that contrary to pinball, beer does NOT enhance my playing performance. Lol

Fantastic video. Great commentary throughout. I could have done without the ribbon ads but that was a minor complaint.

I had totally forgotten about the Crossbow game. I dumped so many quarters into that one. Ha! Good memories!
