    I Love Pinball

    Most people who know me would never suspect that I love pinball as much as I do. I love pinball and can easily find myself lost in a good game. I am very sound sensitive and so it's amazing to me that I can even tolerate being in an arcade and yet somehow when I am there, I...

    The Original Arcade Game

    See for those game junkies that weren't around before the days of video games, they may not know about pinball arcades. Lining the wall were every theme and show on television based machine that you could think of. If you were a pinball wizard back then, you were the king, man...

    Pinball Makes Life Better

    I love pinball. I like fixing and cleaning my machines, I like looking at machines without playing them, and I like playing them. I can play for hours, flicking the silver ball around the little world under the glass, trying to complete the goals before I make a mistake that...

    Pinball Wizard
