League Night Preview: 7/7/15

It’s time to begin another season of the Lansing Pinball League.  It’s hard to believe, but this is going to be the fifth season.  I joined during the third meeting of the first season, and it hardly seems like so much time could have passed already.  The league is still going strong – growing, in fact.  Capital City pinball is here to stay!

It’s traditional to play anything that’s new to the Avenue alongside the usual random selections.  Iron Man has recently been moved into the Avenue in place of Monster Bash, which although I am sorry to see it go, had not been usable for league recently due to straight-down-the-middle scoop shots.  Here are the selections for the night, barring contingencies:

  • Iron Man. Woe is me. This is the game that got me starting off the last Arcade League playoffs with a leaden thud.
  • Tales of the Arabian Nights. I hope the sound is working because it honestly throws my game off a bit when it isn’t. This is not a suggestion about how to sabotage me…
  • Austin Powers. Don’t feed quarters into the left slot. Or was it the right? One of them eats quarters. I’m going with left.
  • Junk Yard. Go on, Mike S. and Chris… give it a little nudge!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the Avenue tomorrow at 7 p.m. for the grand opening of Season 5.

    It is, indeed, the left slot on Austin Powers that doesn’t work. The right slot does. The defect has been noted, once again, in the Pinball Problems Book, along with an explanation for how the Pinball Pete’s tech can test whether the left slot is working, whenever it gets around to being fixed.

    Not scheduled to be played, but Indiana Jones was pretty spontaneously reset-ty today too.
