Continental Cafe Gottlieb 1957 FS Direct B2s




http://roguepinball.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=384My exploration via recreating the early post-war games of Williams and Gottlieb to experience the evolution of flipper pinball design and innovation hands-on continues with Gottlieb's Continental Cafe. Continental Cafe was released in July, 1957. Designed by Wayne Neyens with Roy Parker Artwork, 1,350 Continental Cafe games were produced thus it is a semi-rare game. This game was the fourth game to use the Bulls-Eye targets (the first being Harbor Lites a year earlier). These targets give a higher score if you hit them directly in the center than if you hit them off center.

This game was more difficult to reconstruct than most as I couldn't find many decent photos of it.  The object of the game is to get points, as there is no special (as was the case with most multi-player games of this era). So hitting the green and red lanes to light bumpers and buttons for more points is key and that calls for nudging.  As with all my games, pressing the "R" key gives you game rules.
