    VP8 SS Original Table Pinbot 2002 (Original) VP8 v0.97a

    Pinbot 2002 (Original) VP8 v0.97a Another gorgeous, borderline-unfinished gem from SER. The game is tricky, but fair. You'll need to get a feel for the layout, how to make shots, and which ones to be wary of. Patient ball-control and flipper-play is needed at all times, yet sometimes it's...

    VP8 EM Original Table Hamster! (Original) VP8 by Per Thulin & Misaligned Cow Ventures v1.20

    That hamster may be cute, but it's not easy to get all the items back to the nest! This early-VP classic won't blow you away with bells & whistles, but unlike many originals, there's a carefully-designed ruleset here, and some real satisfaction to be gained from diligent play. The rubber...

    VP8 Williams SS Recreation Space Shuttle (Williams, 1984) VP8 v0.95

    Space Shuttle (Williams, 1984) VP8 v0.95 by Emkaah, with Ale IPD No. 2260 An unbelievably excellent re-creation from way back in 2004. Check out the textures, the subtle lighting effects, and all the TLC that went in to this game. Best of all, it plays beautifully. --@Ike Savage

    VP8 SS Flipperless Recreation Video Games Sonic's Enigma (Taito's Bust-A-Move, 1994) VP8 by Scott Bermel 2020-01-28

    (background music here) GENERAL GAME RULES: A) Create groups of 3 or more gems of the same colour to POP them and score points. B) When you POP gems, any without a connection back to the top will drop and increase the BALL-VALUE as well as score points C) Clearing the playfield of all gems...

    VP8 SS Original Table AntiGrav Pinball (Original) VP8 v1.6 2020-01-28

    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...

    VP8 EM Flipperless Recreation Jimmy das Gummipferd (Mün-Ma, 1950's) VP8 by Cyberyogi v0.9 2020-01-28

    Jimmy das Gummi Pferd ("Jimmy the Rubber Horse") is a main character from the enduring comic book series Julio and Jimmy, later retitled Julio's Adventurous Journeys. (I'm guessing that rolls off the tongue more easily in German) More info on the comic here...

    VP8 Rock-ola EM Flipperless Pitch and Bat Recreation 1937 World Series (Rock-ola, 1937) VP8 v1.9

    1937 World Series (Rock-ola, 1937) VP8 v1.9 IPD No. 3515 Cute, vintage game alert! What really sells this VP conversion for me is the authentic-style atmosphere, which even includes the announcer singling out individual players that come to bat. The pitches are also fast, which you might want...

    VP8 Flipperless Original Table Minigolf (Original) VP8 by Robbway v1.1 2020-01-28

    By Robbway This is easily one of the most brilliant originals ever created, and quite a challenging game. The idea is to finish all the holes, via paths obvious and non-obvious, given a limited number of strokes. --@Ike Savage

    @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
