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.
I was getting a few odd errors on the Attack From Mars machine so I decided to see what the problem was. In this video it turns out there were two separate problems. First a switch matrix issue where switches kept firing and then a another switch that proved to be unreliable and needed replacing.
Funny story how I picked this game up… I was in Dallas at TPF and basically I noticed this odd machine in the back of the exhibit hall with a “for sale” sign on it. I knew the guy selling it, called him on the phone and made a quick deal. What’s funny is he picked up the game earlier in the day after some local saw a pinball machine in his truck, pulled off the road and said, “Hey you like pinball machines? I have one at my house about a mile away, want it?” And he went over, grabbed the game, threw it into the exhibit hall for a quick flip. It’s funny how these things turn out.
