NEWS : 25 YEAR OLD WILLIAMS ROAD SHOW PINBALL FOUND NEW IN BOX

This story seemed pretty relevant to me since I just picked up a used William’s Road Show pinball recently.  The Game Room Blog posted a story about the writer’s friend Gerry who recently bought a NIB Road Show pinball machine.  Gerry purchased the game from a collector who was hoping to open a pinball museum in the future.  The plans for opening a museum fell through so the owner of the game decided to sell it.  I know what people are asking, did the batteries leak on the boards inside the back box?  Read the story below and find out.

GAME ROOM BLOG STORY : 

My buddy Gerry recently purchased a still new in the box Road Show pinball machine for his game room. He was kind enough to share pictures with me of this incredibly rare experience.

I am not sure how many classic pinball machines from the 90’s are still out there, but I expect the numbers are amazingly low.

Gerry purchased this from an amusement company who had saved them for a future pinball museum. But those plans did not come through, so they sold a the games that they had saved.

Did everything work? Any issues with the old batteries leaking you may wonder. Gerry said, “I knew before I even turned it on I would have the adjust those two pot switches for the dozer blade and Red’s mouth. And of course I did.”
