Pinball: Community

As part of researching and understanding Pinball, I have been trying to play as much as possible. However, it is very limited where you can play in public so I took to the internet to research where to find more machines to play.

Below are some of the resources I have used, and what I have found is much more than just pinball machines, but a glimpse into pinball culture through a community of welcoming and friendly people who are enthusiastic about pinball and getting more people interested in playing. This is probably another post that will get updated over time.

I am currently proposing a project based around arcade games, specifically Pinball (see list of posts about Pinball).
