I just love the United design work, and the playfields are one of the reasons why – In so many areas, United really “did their own thing” and here is a great example where they got a little creative, changed it up, and had some fun…

 

 

~ 1951 Rubber-Band Style – Leader & Zingo ~

~ 1955-thru-1957 Bally-Style – Manhattan to Triple Play ~

 

(1955 was a cross-over year with both the hard-rail and bally-style fields )

Then you toss in the bizarre-little roulette-wheel on the ABC, 345, and Bolero and you have quite a mix going!

 

The banked-jobs I just think are cool and would bring a whole new level of complexity to the games, giving the

name Skillpins a nice spin. The hard-rails look like they would help you drop a ball quickly to the lower holes

and also significantly change the game play. It’s cool to see that they kept the graduated-ball-shooter in place.
