I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries from people who want to see more information about individual pinball machines and gameplay, and to be honest, that’s exactly the excuse I need to take some time and actually play and appreciate the games. I tend to get so bogged down in repairing things that I don’t play much these days, so I’ve decided to launch a new video series called, “Pinball Showcase” where I go through a game in the club collection and talk about all aspects: the design, art, gameplay, rules, history, and provenance of this particular machine. I hope you will enjoy it – and bear with me as I iron out the kinks of this new pinball recording rig. You can also follow me on Twitch.tv at www.Twitch.tv/mystickrewe
It puts the ball in play, but it also may need a little bit of TLC, especially if someone has been using the game for awhile without the proper shooter rod rubber tip. Here is a quick video on how to fix the rod and make it like new.
I apologize for not posting as much lately. There have been a bunch of things going on, but I have picked up more games and hope to do more videos on “first looks” as well as “how to” for various things.
In the past few months much of my work has been dedicated towards getting the new space operational and doing PR for our club, the Mystic Krewe of the Silver Ball. An fans of PBH that want to support our club, visit the web page www.MysticKrewe.com.
Recently several new games have come in, including: LW3, Slick Chick, Vector, and a bunch of old playfields that we are trying to figure out what to do. A few games have come in that might not be salvageable — we shall see. And we have a bunch of pieces-parts that we want to try and do some creative things with… stay tuned for more videos!
Last Wednesday we did our first live show…. The pinball arcade we’ve been building in the New Orleans area isn’t just about pinball. We’ve incorporated a state-of-the-art recording and internet broadcast studio into the space. Using the pinball games as a unique backdrop and the arcade as a very special, interesting place to be.
Check out the actual live cybercast here. We will be releasing a high-quality HD video of this soon.
After finally getting our game delivered, and putting over 100 games on the machine, I thought I might outline some of my initial impressions with the game, the ruleset, the design, pros and cons on how JJP’s new pinball machine is shaping up.
