ADDAMS FAMILY PINBALL by BALLY of 1992 at www.pinballrebel.com
I got this game from an operator. It was very dirty and the bookcase had been removed. I put it all back together and shopped it out.
The side art shows Thing kicking a pinball. The Addams logo and Bally logo are also on the side.
The head art shows Thing spinning a pinball in the air kinda like people due with a basketball. The Addams logo and Paramount logo are also on the head.
This is the best selling pinball game of all time. It did it by adding a great well known theme with awesome gameplay. It sold over 22,000 copies.
The plastic topper has a few flashers and lights inside and this is often damaged due to years of route use.
Here you see the upper playfield with the Greed Vault removed. Also the red box in the corners is Things. He will often come out and grab a pinball from the playfield.
Each mansion window is a mode or an award. Complete them all to start the "Tour the Mansion" wizard mode.
Above you can see "the power" which was made up of magnets under the playfield that activated during play to do cool things with the pinballs.
The red box on the top right is where thing will come forth and grab the ball right off the playfield.

Notes: 'The Addams Family' introduced the concept of a game-controlled flipper.
Supposedly, during the original run of The Addams Family in 1992, once the existing
sales record was exceeded cabinets were produced with Gold accents,
such as the lightning and lettering.
Then, in 1994, The Addams Family was put back in production with a special run of
'Gold Edition' machines to commemorate the machine becoming the best selling
machine of all time. These machines had many more Gold accents, such as the metal
ramps, gold legs and bolts, gold lettering, the vault plastic, the bumper caps and Thing's box.
Each "Gold" machine includes a certificate signed by the members of the design team
and a gold plate on the lower right front of the machine containing the machine number.
Marketing Slogans: "A pinball experience for the whole family!"
"Now there's some `thing' special in pinball!"
