This Thursday night, 26 of April, the first ever meet up of the Israeli pinball community took place in Ariella's House Bar.
It began badly, since the bar was not open the time I arrived to the location with another group member, and the bartender was rude. We waited at another place, until Shachar, the pinball wizard and creator of the facebook group of the community has arrived on location, at the time it was open. He set the TAF machine to Freeplay (It's his machine) and we started playing all night. Then Roni, an Expert Dance Dance Revolution player arrived and showed his skills. Others were drinking, and I didn't, since I was A driver. Two other English-speaking players also joined the party for a while.
Currently, the TAF in this location is the most well maintained machine in Israel. Other machines just fall in disrepair!
Stern's Israeli distributor, Pgame, plans to open a location in Tel Aviv with many new machines. The next meet up will be there for sure.
