Notes:
Although Eight Ball is a solid state machine, sound is not generated by a sound board. Instead, a 4-note MPU controlled chimebox produces the sound for this game. This provides the experience of solid state scoring and response, with the added nostalgia of Electro-mechanical chimes. The BONUS BALLS in the centre of the lower playfield are designated balls 1-7 for Players 1 & 3, balls 9-15 for Players 2 & 4.

Artist Margaret Hudson, who assisted Paul Faris on this game as a learning experience, says those are her initials on the bracelet of the girl in the backglass.
