Hi everyone and Happy New Year!

Okay, I have a question about an old arcade game that I used to play as a child. It's for an article I am writing about Haunted Trails. I can picture the game quite vividly, but I cannot recall the name. It is a pirate game, mostly blue colored, with drawings of a pirate ship, the sea, and seaweed. The object of the game is to put coins in a slot and hope that the coins each land in slots that spells out pirate - like one slot is the letter P and another one is I and so on. If the coin lands in one of those slots, a certain amount of tickets (10 or 20) are awarded and if you can get all five letters lit up (meaning your coins have each gone into those letters) then you win the jackpot. If a coin doesn't land in a slot, it goes to a steel bowl in the bottom and you get to use the same coin again.

Does anyone know what I am talking about? I used to play it at least 10 years ago everytime my family went to Haunted Trails.

Thank you!

      The only game that comes close to that for me was "Captain Silver" but you sound like you're talking about some sort of redemption game. In Captain Silver, you had to fight off various foe and collect gold coins to spell out the word "S I L V E R". No sign of a steel bowl though. Perhaps this is not the game you're after. Move along. Nothing to see here.

        Yes, it is a redemption game, not a video game. Almost all the games at Haunted Trails are redemption games that you play to get tickets. Thank you - I actually did not know those kinds of games were called redemption games.

          This needs to be moved to the videogames section.
