We have recently sold the Creature from the Black Lagoon machine, so one cryptoid is gone, but we still have Whitewater, which features bigfoot. We traded our Twilight Zone pinball game for a brand new Houdini game. It is a lot of fun with snippets of Houdini’s silent movies and other features. Have a look at www.pinballtrader.us for the top-20 pinball list and other pages.
