Check out that awesome 70s artwork, these people never stop partying…except for when they need to get another Martini.

Released in 1974 by Meadows Games, Inc. Flim-Flam was very much a knock-off of Atari’s immensely popular 1972 PONG, which in itself was a knock-off of Ralph H. Baer’s Pong title for the Magnavox Odyssey. Though Flim-Flam offered an interesting take on PONG, it could be played by up to four players.

I stumbled on this YouTube video which gives you a very detailed look at the gameplay, I really dig the attract lights on the unit, I can imagine seeing this in a nightclub back in the 70s pretty easily.
