While I don't make many commercail coin-op games, when I do I like to find oddities or rare machines. This is the only game ever manufactured by Empire Wood Working Company, of Baltimore, Maryland.

Olympic was Pure Mechanical (PM), with a theme of Olympic Sports. Notable Features: 10 balls for 5 cents. Disc Hole at top of playfield doubles the entire score. Cabinet is identified as walnut, and measures approximately 31 inches long, 16 inches wide, and 9 inches high.

Notes: The owner of the game pictured at the IPD states that a manufacturer's name could not be found anywhere on the game. While the manufacturer's Instruction Card clearly indicates this game is for amusement only, a handwritten Score Card shows that these games were used for gambling.

The 1932 Summer Olympics were in Los Angeles, California, because LA made the only bid, given there was a global depression at the time.
