Here we have a 1976 Gottlieb Buccaneer pinball machine in action. This video is a bit long... I played three full games - hey, I was having fun!

This is a fairly popular wedge head from the golden age of Gottlieb pinball. The rules are simple and easy to understand, but achieving the objective is challenging enough.

Basically, the player simply needs to light all 11 inserts by either hitting the rollovers or spotting the numbers via the spinner. Once all the numbers are lit, the lanes at the centre of the playfield light for special. Hitting the '1' rollover at the top of the playfield is important since the '1' can't be lit with the spin-n-spot.

With strong flippers, the ball can be returned to the upper playfield through the right or left lanes in addition to the spinner.

This game was designed by Ed Krynski with artwork by Gordon Morison -- the quintessential 70's Gottlieb duo.
