BICAR,

Produced in: 2

Features: Flippers (4), Pop bumpers (4), Slingshots (8), Gobble holes (4), Standup targets (2), Rollunders (2), Gates (2). This game operates on 220v. This is a head-to-head game where two players at opposite ends of the playfield compete in simultaneous play. Each player has flipper buttons which control only those flippers facing the opponent. Each player has two gobble holes. The player who has control of the ball operates only the nearest set of flippers. The player who does not have control of the ball operates the two center gates with the left flipper button and operates the opponent’s two gobble holes with the right flipper button. The player controlling the center gates and gobble holes can operate them only a maximum of three times as counted by the lamps on the apron. This player is trying to “capture” the ball while the other player is trying to complete the rollovers to finish “laps”. Control passes to the other player when the ball falls into a gobble hole, delivering it to that other player. The rollovers make the green center device rotate.

Notes: We have been unable to determine the function and purpose of the round green rotating disc at center playfield. We also don’t know what operates the valve in the outhole drain that directs the drained ball to one player or the other, and when. Reportedly, the first player to complete all five “laps” (the ‘vantaggio’ lamps located on the upper aprons of each playfield) is the winner. The playfield shows the manufacture logo in lower case letters. Federico Croci, a collector in Italy, has only a vague recollection of the manufacturer name and otherwise has never seen or heard of this game. The flippers do not say “flipper” on them, so he wonders if this game was made after 1965. Federico translates the playfield text as follows: biglie giocate = balls played biglia in torretta = ball inside turret (meaning unclear to him) Under the playfield, the wood is stamped BREV. INT. 1018 which stands for “international patent” [Italian: brevetto internazionale] and the number may be the unique game serial number because it is too short for an Italian patent number. If anyone knows anything about this manufacturer, please contact us.
