TRIVIA

Released in November 1931. Baffle Ball captured the small change of so many Americans during the depression that it became a national pastime.

The first successful pinball game, Baffle Ball shows where the 'pin' in 'pinball' came from. The game uses a ball, and the playfield has pins, hence the birth of 'pinball'.

Baffle Ball sold for $17.50. The game proved so popular that 50,000 units were sold within the first few years.

Baffle Ball was also distributed by Rock-Ola Mfg. Co.
