Bobo Loves Pinball

In my mind, Bobo Backslack has been playing this game for, like, an hour, and he's either lucky enough (or good enough) to keep getting match after match.  That guy behind him just wants to give it a whirl, but Bobo's having the game of his life, and he's not ready to give up them hawt little flippers!


I thought this sort of thing was only possible on older machines!

Pinball Down Under!

My girlfriend Claire is in Australia for a few weeks and today I got my first letter from Down Under.  In Melbourne alone, Claire has spotted pinball machines in a few different diners, a record shop and a bowling alley.  Machines included a Star Ship, Guns and Roses, and Creature From the Black Lagoon.  Claire writes, "I played The Creature From the Black Lagoon pinball.  ALL the middle lights in the face were out.  I got a match at the end, so I got a free game."
