Last updated: March 5, 2002 - Modified FOR SALE list
 

The Oregon Deal Pages

    41 total items, including a jukebox, an EM shooting game, 7 pinballs, and 32 video games. Over 10,000 lbs. of wood, glass and metal. One 52' semi to haul them some 1300 miles from Oregon to Canon City, CO. 4 days and a trip to the Pacific Ocean later, I returned home to Indianapolis, IN much poorer and with little to do except create this page.

    First, here are the games. Some are available for sale, some are awaiting our repair efforts before they become available. Some are just plain OURS. A number in parenthesis next to the game indicates it's the second, third, whatever one of it we have. When making inquiries on those, please indicate which of them you are interested in, by number. Here's the color scheme: Blue = mine, Purple = Still with Bobo, Green= For Sale, Red = SOLD or in progress. Got it? Good. Check back here regularly as changes in availability are updated. If you're interested in any of these or have questions, please e-mail me.

Mini-FAQ:

Q: Where are the games located currently?
A: The games in green and blue are mine and safely in Indiana. All other games are, last I knew, in storage in Colorado.

Q: Why are they in Colorado when you're in Indiana?
A: It was easier to ship to Colorado and store them at Bobo's place temporarily.

Q: Who is this mysterious "Bobo" fellow?
A: Bobo is an alias and obviously not his real name, as I did not wish to put the fellow's name on this web page. Bobo's selling his games to the best of my knowledge. I have no more contact with him so please do not write me asking about his games.

Q: Can I take a look at the games?
A: For my games, e-mail me at arcade@madocowain.com and I'll work it out with you. For Bobo's games, I cannot help you there. Post a request on USENET's rec.games.video.marketplace and he might see it.

Q: Are they for sale?
A: See the color chart, above? Anything in green is for sale by me. Anything in purple is potentially for sale by Bobo.  For Bobo's games, I cannot help you there. Post a request on USENET's rec.games.video.marketplace and he might see it.

Q: What about shipping?
A: If you can pick up in the Indianapolis, IN area, that would be great. If not, I can arrange shipping through JackRabbit or a service like Forward Air. There will be a $75 crating/packing fee from me, plus the cost of shipping the item.

Q: Would you ship to me, rather than me picking it up from you?
A: Certainly! Simply pick a method of shipping and let us know where you are, etc. and we'll set it up.

Q: Why is it "The HELL Story"??
A: See the following page when you're done checking out the games. All will be explained, grasshopper.

Pins:

General notes: We didn't get much time to look at the pins, try out everything, make sure every bumper and spinner and flipper, etc. worked. In fact, a couple we don't know if they play at all. We intend to plug them in and get them tested, and get some more pictures of them. At the moment we only have pictures of Spy Hunter, Flash Gordon, and Joust. I know the Spy Hunter works, and I may have played a couple balls of Flash Gordon. More to follow as we get information. If you want to light a fire under Bobo, act interested in buying one of 'em :)

Joust - Mine. Yes, I have a Joust trifecta now. It even plays! Playfield is now restored and can be seen here.

Mata Hari (2) - This one is a bit rougher than the other. Did some work on it, does fine now.
Flash - In Indy. Was supposed to have a spare backglass for this one but it didn't arrive. Works fine now.

Flash Gordon - Playfield has some rough spots, the head glass looks good.
Mata Hari - Not bad, needs some adjustments.

Electro-Mechanical (EM):

Williams 'Spooks' - Non-working at the moment. Sold to someone who knows what they're doing.

A NSM jukebox - Bobo's. Non-working, instructions in GERMAN, but at least he has the manual..

Misc. Parts:

Exerion - boardset and marquee, unknown if working or not, as was in dead game.
 

    Here are links to a couple of slideshow pages. Take a look through the pictures, and remember that most of the games you see are available for sale, just e-mail me with a reasonable offer. Keep in mind this was NOT a warehouse find, but a bulk deal from an operator/collector, done to secure a couple of items in specific.

If your download speed is 128kbps and under, I recommend this option: For the bandwidth-impaired

If your download speed is greater than 128kbps, use this: For the bandwidth-blessed

    Both slideshows will attempt to start before all pictures are loaded. If it looks like you're missing some pictures, please hit the STOP button on the slideshow control bar, and flip through each one manually, using the FF button. Once you've cycled through them all, you may hit PLAY and it will work "hands-free" for you. I'd fix them so it will not begin cycling through the pictures until they have all loaded, but with 86 pictures averaging 50K each (for the high-bandwidth show), that could exceed the browser cache size you have allocated, and would be pointless.

Let me know what you think!

M.O.
