To commemorate the best selling pinball-machine ever, Bally made this Collectors Edition of The Addams Family in a limited series of 1000 games.
The game is more commonly known as The Addams Family Gold and it was released
in October 1994.
Here you can see pictures of what the game looked like when it was NIB. (New In Box).
The regular version of TAF was made in 20.270 ex., breaking Williams´ old sales record of 19.505 ex. held by Flash.
Every machine that exceeded the old record got a cabinet with gold details in the artwork. The playfield and rule set were however the same.


 

 

Differences between TAFG and TAF

Legs, lockdown bar, cabinet side molding, ball shooter assembly and operations manual are all gold colored.
The same goes for the jet bumpers, Things box, the bookcase ,center ramp wire form and the artwork on the cabinet and the bottom arch.
A numbered and engraved plaque is mounted on the front of the cabinet, as well as a Buy-In button.
A Certificate of Authenticity comes with the game, numbered and signed by the whole design team.
New speech is included.
 

 

Changes in game play

Cousin Its Hideout
When given a Mansion Room award, you will sometimes also achieve Cousin Its Hideout
(1-4 times per whole mansion, operator adjustable).
The Hideout awards are (given in random order):
Cousin Its Hat (5M)
Cousin Its Hair Brush (5M)
Cousin Its Sunglasses (7M)
Cousin Its Car Keys (8M)
Cousin Its Hair Spray (10M)
Cousin Its Hair Dryer (15M)
Cousin Its Wristwatch (20M)
Cousin Its Gold Chain (25M)
Cousin Its Gold Pinball (light extra ball)
Cousin Its Bag of Gold (light special)

Wednesday and Pugsleys Secret Passage:
When awarded the 3M Room you will also get another random Room not yet lit.

Super Seance:
The Seance Room is sometimes replaced with Super Seance, where each "knock" is worth 5M more than the usual Seance.

Another feature which differs between TAF and TAFG is starting multiball with a shot to the vault.
In TAF the basic jackpot value is 10M regardless if the multiball is started in the electric chair or vault.
In TAFG however the jackpot in the electric chair starts at 10M, in the vault at 15M.
 
 

Below is from a mail I recieved from Larry DeMar in which he explains the mounting of the plaques:

"When the gold games were run, Pat pulled the plate numbers 1-10.  He then gave the rest of them to production with instructions to put the numbers on the games in random order.
As you are well aware, they did not, so the numbers went out in the order that they were built. With European games always done ahead of US games, most of the low number went to Europe.
When they got to the US part of the run, 2 games were designated for Pat and I and the #1 and #2 plates were put on these games."

-Larry DeMar (TAFG #0002)

This explains why TAFG #1, #2, #3 and #5 on the list have a later D.o.M. than the games below.
 

 
 

The list currently contains 160 unique games.

"The game has never been operated and I have replaced the black front door with a gold one that was part of the run of trim for the final record breaking gold machine (which was signed by everyone in the factory)."
