Friday Flyers: Black Knight 2000 (1989)

Sadly I’ve not had the chance to play Williams Electronic’s Black Knight 2000 table by the “Master of Flow” Steve Ritchie in the wilds of the arcade. From playing the original Black Knight I can only assume though that I would have really enjoyed it.

Thanks to gamehulk over at YouTube for uploading this video from California Extreme 2008!

As always a huge tip of the hat to the amazing Arcade Flyer Archive for the wonderful scanned flyers posted below.

Thanks to Paperclown for posting the main theme to the game on YouTube! I was tapping my foot the entire time I listened to it!

    Williams always made the best pinballs IMHO. The later 80s game always had a really good sense of humor with the backglass generally reflecting that.

    Although, Bally’s Xenon always sticks out in my mind and I haven’t seen one in about 30 years other than online.

    If anybody here is into pinball, has a podcast that talks a fair amount about pins.
