Thank you Cait.

This video is a great example which displays how little most of us know about the amusement and vending industry in other regions of the world. I admit to being very North American based in my knowledge of coin-op like many of you, yet there is quite a bit of history and divesity when you take a closer look around the globe. Nuts I tell ya, just nuts.

Bally 1936 "Bumper" - North Star 1950 "Richelieu" - Universal 1950 "Feature Bell" - Gottlieb 1952 "Queen of Hearts" - Williams 1960 "Ten Spot" - Gottlieb 1971 "Challenger" - Williams 1973 "OXO" - Bally 1976 "Bonanza"

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more. Un max de 10 machines, pas plus.
Une règle suivi guéri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule until the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman friend from sighing, there will only be memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build that RRSP of memories in order to joyfully cushion the later stages of life.

Personally prefer the exceptional qualities lurking beneath any normal state of affairs. Alas, our day to day is being promoted as extraordinary via a world wide web largely fueled by the new dumb & followed closely by the latest breed of unscrupulous scoundrels & judas goats. So, god bless the fool hearted, the crazed, and the railroaded in good measure for they will likely inherit what is left of the earth after the screwheads are done with it. God damn darwinian primates, why do they refuse to evolve, even after all we should have learned from being savages for so long.

I've done a lot of research on Japanese coin-op and have lately been digging a lot of European coin-op. But dang I can't say I recommend getting in to it because shipping stuff across the ocean is ridiculous, and finding stuff from other continents in North America is like a needle in a haystack.
but oh man, I have quite the wishlist of machines from across Europe!
