A GAME WHICH
RESEMBLES A PINBALL MACHINE
A drop case is a game
which resembles a pinball machine. A marble is dropped
into a slot at the top of the Drop Case and makes its way down
to the bottom guided by a nail like pieces of metal which are
implanted to the back of the case.
The case is gaffed and
operated by a Grifter.
They are no longer in use
and are collector items.
A pinball machine is in
fact a mechanized and complicated drop case.
Question is being answered by Mr. Tony Giorgio, who is an
actor, magician and gambling expert.". Mr. Giorgio travelled
with several carnivals and circuses during the 1930s. He was a
sideshow magician and lecturer from 1935 to 1939. Mr. Giorgio
has extensive first hand knowledge of carnivals, circuses, their
operation and language". Further, I may want to hyperlink my
