Rat Race Version 1 by Wild and Gimli
Thanks to Ravarcade for BAM !
IPD No. 3718
Wild created the table build and some of the coding( lighting and sounds) for this table more than a year ago.
I coded the game play and the mechanics of the tilting table.
I added some music ( from Crash...
The IPDB lists 31 historical games designed for head-to-head play:
At least seven of those have been re-created, and are hosted here:
Tabletop Hockey (Munro, 1932-'33)
Soccer table (foosball) (1952 Bonzini)
I'd say this is worthy of a release thread, since I don't believe it ever got posted to PN before. Originally this was released on the late, great VPForums.Com in 2005 by the team of TomB, Gaston, and Destruk.

Pretty amazing table, heavily inspired by the classic wooden tilting maze games. Also one of those fairly rare, solid state, non-redemption flipperless games. Unfortunately it never went in to production, but thankfully, we have VP. This...

While it's difficult to pick any one Jeff Block table as representative of @Freezezzy's total body of work, I like the way this game turns VP on its head, so to speak, by removing gravity and creating a four-player, eight-flippered experience.
This might not be the most landbreaking game ever...

One to four players may participate in a slot car race. Choose your number of laps, your "car", and away you go.
A fun little multiplayer game that will test your reactions and endurance!
When a player's ball reaches the end of a segment, they must hit their "continue button"...
This is a pretty darn effective version of flippered air hockey you can play against the computer!
The author (druadic) suggests himself that this table would make the basis of a more articulated version, and he kindly grants those rights in the table info. Enjoy.

Pin Hockey (Original) VP8 (project table)
by Ken Miller
For some reason the author didn't use any imagery, but you can add in the attachments to help dress up the game. Note this can be played in VP8 (and maybe later VP versions), except that the keys default to the standard 'shift & nudge'...
Want to play basketball at work?
Dont be afraid by your manager. Just press 9 and the game launches Excel before he comes. Then quit excel and continue to play. Have fun.
The first pinball that hides himself and launches Excel!
By Patrick - Updated to V2 from Paris2004 to Paris2005. Players are visible and unvisible flippers, with songs from the "Parc des Princes of Paris".
Quite a clever, two-player soccer game! What makes this really interesting is that a player's flippers will jump around the screen, tracking the...
The earliest type of these mechanical hockey games was built by Donald H. Munro, Sr. in his Toronto home in 1932-33. Made of wood and scrap metal found in his neighborhood, Munro built his first game as a Christmas present for his children at a time when he could not afford to buy gifts. Soon...
This is a fun, cleverly-made, two-player table-soccer game! I.e., "foosball" for American audiences.
Note: you might want to go in to the script to reconfigure the keys to your liking. (text by @Ike Savage)

A rare two-player, head-to-head game. After loading the game the first time, reset it once (F3 key) to go in to play mode. Get the ROM here.
Notes: This particular table seems to have been remade only one other time, in standard (non head-to-head)...
I was over at VPF today and saw a thread about Joust ("Joust again" I think it is called), and someone was saying "too bad VP don't do head to head well. Well I thought, why wouldn't it? it does about everything else and confirmed in a few minutes that indeed it does. here is an almost default...
Jeff Block has released another innovative and creative table, a slot car race game of sorts. I look forward to Jeff's tables, just to see what new idea he's come up with. And at long last he even uploaded it here, which is a first. Niw if I can get him to start his own release threads I'll have...
Author Jeff Block has given us to host some of his tables. I have just added Block's Basketball to the Sports Theme section, and AntiGrav Pinball to the Arcade and Video setion. While both are flippered, they are both excellent, challenging games.
Block's Basketball allows you to choose the...
