|I bought my Theatre of
Magic from fellow pinhead Mike in August of 1997. The game has been owned
by several people, but it appears to be a HUO game rather than a routed
game. I love this game and especially the purple colors in the artwork and
the various multi-balls that can be played. I doubt I will ever sell the
game due to its fun-factor.
Williams made 6,600 Theatre of Magic games in March of 1995. The game features 2 flippers, a rotating trunk with a magnet, a 2 and 3 ball multi-ball, a 4 ball multi-ball, 2 magna saves, and a levitating ball effect. The game was designed by John Popadiuk with artwork by Linda Deal, sound by Dave Zabriskie, and software by Jeff Johnson.

Here are a few TOM pictures I have gathered and a couple I made. This is a fun game to play and I seriously doubt I will get rid of this game for a long time. Most all of my games are at the top of the collectable list, but this one is really fun. This is my buddy Bob's favorite game too.
