Rainbow (Gottlieb, 1956) VP8 v1.0
IPD No. 1911

New VP8 Build of the Gottlieb game Rainbow. Designed by Wayne Neyens with art by Roy Parker, Rainbow was released in December 1956. 1,250 units were produced so this game is rare to find today. I was drawn to this game by the fact that it has only rollover lanes, no targets, kickers, etc. I wondered how interesting it would be to play. It turns out to be more interesting than I had imagined. Strategy is made interesting by the combination of double and single number lanes. I do wonder about what Parker is trying to say in the great looking artwork though. People and animals eating loco weed and hallucinating while wandering in the desert. On the playfield the prospector is tapping a large cactus for water with his pick axe.

    @Free Bally!, Pirates are often depicted with eye patches in popular culture, but the reasons for this vary. Here are a few possible explanations:

    1. **Injury**: The most straightforward reason a pirate might wear an eye patch is that they lost an eye due to injury. Pirate battles, sword fights, and the general hazards of seafaring life could easily lead to eye injuries, necessitating an eye patch.

    2. **Myth and Stereotype**: The image of a pirate with an eye patch has become a stereotype perpetuated by movies, books, and other forms of media. It's part of the romanticized pirate image that includes peg legs, hooks for hands, and parrots on shoulders.

    3. **Preserving Night Vision**: A more interesting and practical theory suggests that pirates wore eye patches to keep one eye adapted to the dark. When moving between the bright deck and the dark below decks, a pirate could switch the patch from one eye to the other. The eye that was covered
