Announcements: (past announcements)

Goodwill Industries of Southern California posted a Nip It pinball machine for sale they claim was owned by Henry Winkler.  Mr. Winkler's iconic Happy Days character, The Fonz, was known to play a Nip It machine throughout the show's run.  So theoretically, you could own Fonzie's personal Nip It!  It doesn't look like provenance is offered or if this was one of the actual machines used on Happy Days, but the site says that Mr. Winkler himself donated the machine to be sold.  Regardless, a serial number was visible in the photos, and is now a part of the IPSND!

New Trait for Jacks to Open!
Thanks to IPSND member Lenny Esposito, we have added a new trait to the Gottlieb/Mylstar game Jacks to Open to identify test units that featured an alpha-numeric display.  To read more about the test units, head over to the Jacks to Open page on the IPDB.

Mobile App Updates
The app has been running a few months now. I have a handful of issues to start digging into. Definitely use your WiFi if you can for the best success on submissions. I will post another announcement once I release a new version. The news within the app also has more info since that is a separate feed from this one. Happy Friday!
