    Up to a few weeks ago on kijiji there was an ad for a Streets Penny Bowl... It's a British penny arcade pictures can be found here.
    If I remember correctly it was listed in the Mississauga... ish location.
    The ad looked sketchy at best. No actual pictures of the said arcade. Best offer type of ad.
    Seller didn't have any other coin operated related ads.
    I suspect the ad ran out at the end of the 8 week period.

    I'm curious to know if it was anyone here selling the Penny Bowl or anyone here that bought the arcade if the machine actually existed that is.

    I was intrigued by the ad and wanted to contact the seller but I couldn't find the ad anymore. Would have been fun to acquire some obscure (pre-decimal) penny arcade.
    Cheers!

    That was up for sale before a few years back (how many of them could there have been in Canada?). Is that the one where you roll a penny down the aisle to hit something akin to pins? It's going way back now, likely 10 years ago.

    I almost bought it, I think the guy at the time wanted too much for it.

    Yes, seems like we are talking about the same game.
    The picture used in the ad was from Elephant House Auctions I think

    Hi All, just saw this. I bought it from a guy in Toronto back in April 2020 +/-.

    The cabinet is a total mess, but the game runs 100% and the interior is in great shape.

    Since there is only 2 (that I can find) in existence (mine being the third, and two others in the UK), I elected to hire a professional woodworker to rebuilt a full new cabinet (same specs), and will repaint the same as the original in the spring.
    I will post a Youtube in the spring when it is running.

    Pretty cool machine.
