A brief stopover at Big Star Bar

So I just happened to pass by Big Star Bar this past Tuesday. This location has just a Ripley’s Believe it or Not (Stern, 2004) which at one time was one of my favorite games (back when there was still a Tilt arcade in the lower level of The Galleria). This particular machine was a bit dirty but reportedly still played well. I tried my hand at it, failing to reach the replay score of 6M both times. The scoreboard photo represents the better of the two attempts.

Regrettably, during the third ball of the second game the lower right flipper began failing completely. Rather than take my chances with a third game I decided to call it a day.
