I put new batteries in and when you shoot the ball, you periodically get a flash of light and if you hit the right spot, the score does change. But it's not like it's constant electronic action. Also, the scoreboard is supposed to fit snuggly at the top and fold over, but one of the pivot points is broken. So you can see it sits in place just fine, maybe slightly askew, but it is a break to be aware of. The pinball game itself is much better if you're not keeping score.
Some of the springs are a little tight and the ball sometimes gets stuck. There might be a very minor warp in the sheet metal on the bottom.Just a little wiggle and a second ball and it works though. The plastic on the cover of the pinball section shows some wear, scratches, marks that look like rings from glasses sitting on top of it.
On the underside, the holes where the top legs go in have some plastic breaks. There's a little tape residue on one side of the base where maybe it was held together more firmly at one point. I forgot to measure it before packing it up, but the box it's in is 18 inches, so figure this is 16-17 inches long. The top separates from the bottom, has 4 removable feet to prop it up.
Overall, this is great as a display piece, fun to casually shoot the balls around, and has a lot of potential if you want to play around with the electronics and do a very minor restoration on. I'm going overboard highlighting the faults on this, because it's not pristine at all, but the reality is it's a really fun and rare find!
