    Introducing BunnyBoard, made by Marble Games Company Youngstown, Ohio, 1932.  This was my inspiration for becoming a table author.  I am probably more excited to finish this table since it was my first inspiration since joining this hobby, and it only took me 2 years to build...  I made a posting at VPF 2 plus years ago about wanting help to build a table, last year someone posted, "dont give up, you can do it", so i did.  My other inspiration was that i saw someone else built one at one of the other sites and it was based off of pictures, so i figured i would finish this one since i own it.

    Background on this one and how i came to own it.  I did a post on the history of the first "coin operated" pinball, which was Whiffle by Automatic Industries in early 1931, also from Youngstown Ohio.  This one came from a woodworking company in Youngstown in late 1931 in an Oak cabinet carved out beautifully and later in 1932 in a cherry cabinet, which i have.  Pinball became so popular that in the early 1930's, hundreds of companies began to pop up from wood shops in Ohio to amusement companies in Chicago. https://www.bmigaming.com/pinballhistory.htm, talks about Whiffle and Bally's first release of Ballyhoo, which was just made here for VPX.

    I purchased mine from craigslist for $100 which included dead mice, urine smell and mouse bedding and nests.  I completely redid mine and now it is a permanent fixture in my home.

     

    ******GAMEPLAY******

    Rules, There are 7 marbles in the game.   I added different marble textures to choose from, click Options/Ball/Ball decal and change through the different marble colors to one you like.  You start the game by inserting 5 cents and pushing the coin mech in which lifts the wires up and allows all marbles to fall below the apron.  This is done in VPX by the coin in (3) button.  There is a push knob on the front of the table which, when pushed in, ejects a ball, or two, to the shooter lane, This is done with the (1) button.  The plunger is pulled back and fire a marble up and out into one of the wire loops.

    Special thanks to the following who made this possible

    Loserman76 for help with the scripting to get this working properly

    Mlager8 for making the primitive wood pieces inside and the wood trim on the outside

    32Assassin for help with testing and troubleshooting

    Can’t help it. But, I’ve seen several cases where this community actually have supplied information to ipdb which hasn’t been taken under their wings. Makes you wonder if we could do a better job ourselves to be perfectly honest.

    Great job on this.

    What would I need to do to get B2S to display a simple backglass? I think I can make the BG file. Seems like some addition to the script could make it happen. Any advice?

    Or is there another way to get a backglass to display?

    add this

    Set Controller = CreateObject("B2S.Server")
    Controller.Run

    before

    Dim EnableBallControl
