Well, that is certainly easier than making it say 'faites vos jeux'
and 'rien ne va plus' ;)
A cheat button would be nice as well. When the cheat input (remote
controlled) is active, the next turn will stop at the 2 previously
numbers added together (minus 37 if >= 37)
Also, the rotation of the 'wheel' for each game should alternate
between CW and CCW.
And funny patterns when the game is idle for more than 2 minutes.
Actually, this could become a nice DIY kit. A nice 'pinball-art'
design on a transparent sheet, small incandescent lamps underneath,
pcb & all the parts, 9V battery, all for $30, who can resist that?
