1973 Paddle-Ball Arcade Game

Visitors playing Paddle-Ball.

We have an original 1973 PONG arcade clone by Williams, the future makers of Defender, Joust, etc. in the 80’s. Paddle Ball according to web sources, was their first video game. The motherboard is an almost exact copy of the Atari version. Toss a coin in the slot and experience for yourself what it was like to play the first PONG game.

I am told that Williams desired to compete with Atari’s PONG arcade game with a version of their own.
