Fascination

arcade game

Fascination traces its origins to the early 20th century, when many North American amusement parks and boardwalk arcades featured the Skee Ball and Bingo hybrid game. Players aimed and rolled balls down a four-foot-long wooden table with 25 holes (arranged in a five by five square matrix) at the other end of it. Like Bingo, the object is to fill, or in this case drop a ball into each of the holes in one vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row. This Chicago Coin Fascination arcade game translates the basic game rules of the original larger parlor game into a coin-operated upright arcade game that separates the players from the balls and relies on button-controlled puffs of air to move the balls around the playfield.
