C.O.D. - Williams 1953




https://roguepinball.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=741Williams C.O.D. was released in September 1953.  C.O.D. was designed by Harry Williams with art by George Molentin. I can't find how many units were originally produced, but this game is rare to find today. This game has outstanding artwork, and it really says 1950s with just a glance. C.O.D also shows the asymmetric design propensity of Harry Williams as well as his use of the autoflipper instead of slingshots during this period. The first Trap Hole flipper game (Niagara) was released in December of 1952.  In all 28 trap hole games were made before trap holes gave way to gobble holes in mid 1954.  C.O.D. was midway through this trap hole period.  With 10 holes, 5 trap and 5 kickout, it also looks like a case of "you want holes, here's some holes".  There are multiple strategies to pursue for replays and it's possible (but not easy) to get several replays in a single game.
