For sale is my Bally Playboy machine. Currently located at Flip Out London Pinball Club, this machine has just been thoroughly serviced including 3 brand new boards in order to ensure it's reliability. The chime unit is fully working and the only reason for the sale is that some visitors to the club believe it to be offensive. You are welcome to try the game out for yourself by visiting the club, delivery can be arranged locally or using Martin nationwide.

These are conversations that us founders have had over and over. Sopranos is another that divides opinion. With Playboy being mine (and plenty more games that can replace it) I have decided to let someone else enjoy it.

'enjoy it '......

Sopranos should be banned for having the single most depressing translite in all pinball. One glance at it can tip a fragile soul into a pit of depression from which there is no escape. God it's grim.

Well I guess there's a lot of stuff people don't like from the 1970's ...……… but IMHO you still can't beat the music from that era! Is this an emerging business opportunity...………..screen off an area for offensive machines and charge extra to play;)

Really high quality pictures Matt :)
Is it a Playboy Pinball?

Just went through them again and your photos are definitely improving.
How do you increase the fuzziness so much?

What a pathetic country the UK is becoming. I have zero interest in the whole Playboy scene, but to airbrush it from history is absurd.

I get it that the customer is king. I run a community cinema and I have to be careful with 15 rated films given the sensitivities of my audience and my small village catchment area.

Some of the greatest feats of human artistry have profoundly more explicit content than Playboy. And I don't see the Italians or French banning them.

The Islamic State would ban them though.

Agreed it’s madness ...
Next they will want to erase this from the art world as well

The camera on my phone is notoriously bad. I asked Nock to take the pics and send them onto me, looks like we are both pony at taking photo's. Still, the game is available for public play so not hiding anything.
