description:  This early flipper game has a symmetrical playfield, and featured wood rails.  It also had electro--mechanical, Gobble holes - a feature that forced the player to chose between loosing the ball for big points or keeping the ball in play.  

information:  This post war era game featured flippers, which was new for its time.  These flippers actually faced outward as opposed to inward, as in today's pinball games.
