1976- Aquarius/Buccaneer

Back in 1976, I found an old very worn Gottlieb Aquarius and decided to make a custom playfield, using the parts from the worn game. I took a piece of plywood and drilled holes for the inserts. Then I used spray paint and used stickers to decorate the primitive playfield. I think that I have some old photos on this game on location. I used a Buccaneer backglass because it had five digit scoring that was prevalent at that time.

So the game was a custom playfield with long flippers, that used modified Aquarius rules and had a Buccaneer backglass.

The playfield (without parts) resurfaced a few years ago and is in a private collection in Southern California. This is the only surviving early design of mine.
