    If you have been hanging around Twin Galaxies for the past 8 years, you know that Patrick Peterson left his career as a referee to move on to doing his own thing, including assembling an archive to preserve the history of video games. From time to time she showcased items that he "rescued" ...

    Marcade can confirm, but I believe the "gold" version is on the left, the "platinum" version is on the right. I like the play on the Platinum better, but the backglass on the "gold" better.

    This weird game was not fun at all. Just like the arcade Q*bert!

    A real life version of the game that I first played in Pinball Arcade. Not fun. Constant multi ball, auto launching. Timed game. The people that approved this design where nuts. Only 10 produced.

    The Museum of Pinball has organized their pinball machines by manufacturer and era. It is great to wander down the isles and take in the beauty of the artwork (or not!), and listen to the clicks and bells. Such a different game back in the 60's and 70's.
