Eden Stamm broke the record today in Vancouver, BC. I'm not sure what his final time was (he may even still be playing!) but he broke the old record of 28 hours continuous playing. I'm sure he won't be paying TZ for a while...

Here's the pinball news article:

and here's a segment from local TV this morning:

Do you know how long he is planning on going for?

I thought it was madness that he was attempting the record on a single TZ machine, then he said there was a backup machine and I thought, well at least a little variety then...

And the camera pans around, to another TZ in the background!

Crazy Canucks, wow 5 minute break every hour, not much time to take a good deuce. I cant imagine how his hands feel after that-probably some blisters. I cant believe he did it just on a TZ, it would have at least helped to keep his interest if several different games were involved. Wonder what his best score was?

I know he got a score of +2 Billion.

Apparently that one game only rule was stipulated by Guinness.

36 hours he went. I believe 2.2b was his best.

That picture of the hand reminds me of when I reached puberty.

? - is this for one game that lasts 36 hours??

#19 3 years ago

What are the chances that there would be another potential record holder from the same city?

I hear about this guy back in the 80's. He was all over the news. It's legit.

No. The only machine Eden played in the attempt was Twilight Zone - that was stipulated by Guinness. Many games were played - he has the full audits so hopefully will share when available. A 5 min break was allowed every hour which could be "banked" for later if he decided to not take at the scheduled time.

Alex Hunter played for 76 hours and 33 minutes in 1984. His attempt is very well documented. So was Lonnie Mihin's 50 hour stint at Pinball Expo in Wheeling last year.
