The Pinball Podcast – Featured Machines by Rank 2.0

Introducing the new and more accurate TPP Featured Machine Rankings. We had several requests to rank our games, and for a long time it was a shoehorn routine (I like this more than that, so it goes here.)  Now, Jeff and Don rated all the featured games on Pinside, then took the average of their Pinside ratings to determine the overall rank.  Pinside allows the rater to determine how important various traits are to them (ie. art, sound, overall fun, etc.), so the rankings should be fairly ‘true’, based only on the opinions of two people though.

ANYWAY, here they are.  A perfect game gets a score of 10.000, and then downwards from there.  I’ve included our combined scores.

Episode 58 – Live from the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown 2015

Hey guys, we had the opportunity past weekend to come together to record a live show in Denver at the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown. We had a nice audience in attendance and we had a great time meeting fans, having a few goofs, and playing lots and lots of pinball. Please excuse any rough audio, but I think we captured all the important parts clearly enough.
