We will definitely try to get up for th...

Re: FreePlay Florida

I was in the area last year while it was happening. I was checking for some pinball around me while on a vacation. I saw that FreePlay just happened to be about a 10m cab ride from my hotel... I managed to resist the urge to sneak off and get some late night games in, mostly due to the cost and the...

Re: You should host a Pinball Tournament

Re: The Worst Pinball Game?

Didn't give the specifics before because this is super early in the planning stage and as any project has a chance of dying before it begins ha ha basically i am going take "the worst" pinball machine and do a high end restoration and modification.

This type of thing is VERY subjective and not meant to be hurtful so if you have one or all of the machines listed please do not send hate mail. When you think of THE WORST pin...
