We’re all big fans of pinball here at Robot Panic. In fact, it’s safe to say that most of us are pining for a table of our own and have been so for a long, long time. So, when anything even remotely pinball related comes our way, we have to share it with all of you.
Our latest find is The Pinball Blog, brought to us by the UK gentleman who writes the blog, known simply as Nick. The Pinball Blog is UK based and it bears mentioning that Nick is the man who organizes the UK Pinball Show, which has become a huge pinball event since it’s inception in 2004. Like I needed another reason to visit England. The blog is very, very cool and worthy of your precious internet time. One of the best parts of the blog is the Pinball Heroes features. Nick has this to say about them:
“I recently started a feature called Pinball Heroes where I ask leading pinball personalities a bunch of random questions. Already a few have been published on the blog. I’ve interviewed Pinball designers Steve Ritchie & John Trudeau, Las Vegas Hall of Fame owner Tim Arnold, LTG : ) from SS Billiards (and rec.games.pinball legend), plus pinball author Gary Flower. The latest interview is with the man possibly responsible for there even being a pinball hobby. Roger Sharpe, who argued to the New York city council that pinball was skill and not luck, and subsequently had the long-term ban on pinball lifted. And more pinball heroes due each weekend.”
All the Pinball Heroes articles are fantastic and it’s especially nice to see our friend from SS Billiards talk about his vast knowledge. Be sure to hit those up and throw Nick some love while you’re over there!
Thanks Nick, for pointing us to your awesome blog! Long Live Pinball!
