After three long weeks, it’s finally time for another meeting of the Lansing Pinball League – the seventh of this season. The list of games keeps changing as games keep breaking down. Attack from Mars has a bad flipper. Addams Family is still unpredictable in regard to swamp kickouts. Austin Powers eats quarters. The Simpsons breaks kneecaps. Well, not really, but it’s out of the rotation due to general cruelty. And World Cup Soccer’s ramp diverter is screwed up, causing balls to get rejected intermittently from the ramp. Matt held a poll regarding whether we should go ahead and play WCS as planned and the prevailing opinion was “no.” Although the usual philosophy is “we all play on the same imperfect tables,” many thought that this situation is unfair in a way that other malfunctions aren’t: one player could shoot the ramp fine, then leave the diverter in the “wrong” state for the next player. As things have currently shaken out, we are scheduled to play the following games:
- Lord of the Rings
- Tales of the Arabian Nights
- Fish Tales
See you all tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Avenue.
