Player Comments - Playball

Nick Sainz:

I love the machine. It has not only a great theme, but a mix of skill and chance. Great work Nick and I hope you fall in love with this machine and never sell it. Thanks for the fun and nostalgia.
Nick Dangerous: Thanks Nick! It took quite a lot of time and effort to restore it. The sides still need some touch-up paint and a new layer of semi-gloss. Also the various dim/flaky bulb sockets will be fixed soon.

Andrew Floyd:

Amen to Mr. Sainz. The machine is like a black hole I love getting sucked into. That said I was at the space around midnight and noticed that the Home Run pocket on the left side didn't seem to be registering. We turned it off after we had finished playing, so hopefully when it is "booted up" again that problem will be non-existent. Just letting the folks in charge know!
(ND's response): Thanks Andrew. I think this was normal behavior. The home run outlanes will not score if the motor is busy handling another event, because the motor can only deal with one "base hit" at a time (listen for the five clicks). So if you score a base hit and then immediately suffer a quick drain on an outlane, it won't have time to register the home run. Ah, the serendipity of pinball!

Lisa Selk:

My grandsons and I had a blast playing pinball here the other night! Many Thanks to Nick Dangerous for sharing his very nicely restored pinball game with the 'Space! :)
Here are some of the boys' fun moments! :)
Thanks again!!! :)
(ND's response): Glad you guys enjoyed it & thanks for the great pics!

Ken Purcell:

We had a wild moment there, my son Joseph runs in and says that the pin rolled over to zero again! All us ran in the room and and was stunned at what we saw. For a few minutes we thought he had a truly amazing score. After Joseph earned another thousand points or so, Nick D. realized the Game Over light was not lit and the pin was no longer tracking the number of balls. We had to let him believe he was a master pinball wizard.
Need to print up a DMS Pinball Trophy with a working light-up backglass. Anyone up for a design challenge?
