    Notes: Flippers were already used on many games prior to 1947, but they were non-electrical, entirely mechanical. Some games had eight mechanical flippers, such as Ad-Lee Company's 1932 'Double-Shuffle'. Most were "manually-operated" bats used on baseball games, one to a playfield.

        I did play one game of this, via a remote session to ensure that we would be able to keep track of scores for the competition successfully and I can say that a ball doesn't last long. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed .

        As Skids said, this is history, and we can hate him.

            Something is going to get broken if I play this one for much longer.

                  Same here. It's more fun than I thought it would be...........strangely satisfying.

                          Grew on me (or my competitive spirit) a bit as I tried for 1 million. But I doubt I'll play it again after this competition. Hopefully we don't lose any players 😊

                              Can't play this one. It loads the table, sounds like it starts but no ball launch. I only have 1 monitor.
