  1. These past few weeks...

    ....have been hectic. I did have fun spending time with family over the last two weekends, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying some pinball in the meantime. Here we go!

    First up is the trip to Pittsburgh -- the location I visited is Kickback Pinball Cafe, since my last visit from 2014.

    Black Knight: Sword of Rage: First games were getting in the hang of the shots. Best score at the time was about 48 million points. Also played with other people in the cafe.
  2. Where have I been?

    It's been a while since the unfortunate implications about Pinburgh. I've long since been better about this situation, and recently I've been able to travel a whole lot more, especially to places that I've never even visited.

    For those of the auditory persuasion, I should be showing up more on BlahCade, too. Although with the advent of the Live and their ...
  4. Pinburgh 2018 - A Tragedy

    Right when the tickets became available in February, I got in the waitlist as soon as it became available. Started in the mid-high 50's, and climbed through as time passed. Midway through July, I finally managed to purchase my ticket for Pinburgh 2018, and officially make it into the player list. I didn't have to get my event tickets until it gets closer to the event, so I waited until about a week's time before the tournament started to get them.

  5. 10 Years of Pinball

    Before summer came along in 2008, I was still the same person you'd meet today. The same person, JPF, who enjoys video games, bowling, and pinball from time to time. At that point, I was still into some of the more casual games found commonly from places like MSN Games, as well as games played on consoles, like the Wii I still have today. I still remember bowling my very first 200 game back in February that year, but that's a whole different story.

    Little did I know that one advertisement ...
