Bajazzo, 1926
Notice this unusual version has reduced player control to a single knob which raises the ball and moves the clown. Payout is via gravity feed brass wheel.



Bajazzo played in Gauselmann Museum, Lübbecke

OK, all other aspects aside, which catcher game do you find the most FUN to play. I like the Payramind and Retreeva-style ones well enough, but I think I enjoy playing the "American style" kicker-catcher ones even more.
There's something about the "illusion of control" when you're also the one flicking the ball into the pin-field.

Also not as much of a fan of machines that use bearings / marbles that are on the smaller side.
Would love to hear opinions
