Japanese games

Postby cait001 » Thu Apr 18, 2019 2:12 am

Saw these Japanese machines and thought they would be of interest to people here, if not bemuse you all.

A payout pachinko-style machine that is really throwing back to the Allwin styles.

In the 1950s Bally produce a few skill roll games, but Japan really cornered the market on these.

Later 20th-cent Japanese variant on the popular balance games.

While this game is very solid state, I love that Japan produced a lot of games in the classic Duomat style.

Don't know where the machine comes from but the main name language is Spanish (north west) or northern Portugal I think. :!?!:

I lived in the Basque country (Northern Spain/Southern France) in the 70s. Whereas a form of "Sarabled" is used there it means non functioning or handicapped.
So I think it's more likely a coincidence.
I can't imagine Bryans producing a machine called "Buggered Up"

BP !PUZZLED!

Google Translate tells me Sarabled means Sarred in Armenian... :!?!:

Looks like it has a bit of age to it.

surely it must mean "thoroughbred" although I cant find the language ,several European languages use a version of "pure blood" for "thoroughbred" and the second half of this word could mean blood ? !PUZZLED!
