Mega Giveaway Day 115 – Pinball Showdown Game

Mega Giveaway Day 115 – Pinball Showdown Game

In December, during a trip to Des Moines for a Katy Perry concert, we took a bit of a detour to visit an arcade. Known for having a bunch of vintage pinball machines, we were in heaven. The neighbors have a pinball machine in their basement and the girls rave about it. Purchasing one for our recreation room would mean losing a whole lot of space that could house board games. So what do we do? We find a pinball card game to get us by. We provided an overview of Pinball Showdown last October then included it our list of card games this past holiday season. If you’re a fan of pinball games, enter to win Pinball Showdown from Shoot Again Games. It’s our Day 115 prize in our 150+ Days of giveaways!

    I’m a big fan of arcade games. Pinball is my favorite game. I remember that as a child I spent whole days playing this game. Here’s an interesting fact from wikipedia: ”
    Billard japonais, Southern Germany/Alsace ca. 1750–70. It already has a spring mechanism to propel the ball, 100 years prior to Montague Redgrave’s patent. In France, during the long 1643–1715 reign of Louis XIV, billiard tables were narrowed, with wooden pins or skittles at one end of the table, and players would shoot balls with a stick or cue from the other end, in a game inspired as much by bowling as billiards. Pins took too long to reset when knocked down, so they were eventually fixed to the table, and holes in the bed of the table became the targets. Players could ricochet balls off the pins to achieve the harder scorable holes. A standardized version of the game eventually became known as bagatelle. Somewhere between the 1750s and 1770s, the bagatelle variant Billard japonais, or Japanese billiards in English, was invented in Western Europe, despite its name. It used thin metal pins and replaced the cue at the player’s end of the table with a coiled spring and a plunger. The player shot balls up the inclined playfield toward the scoring targets using this plunger, a device that remains in use in pinball to this day, and the game was also directly ancestral to pachinko” Good luck to all!
