    Tonight , after our regular Tuesday tournament at the Zanzabar, a guy wanted to play what he called "Tommy dollars." In order to play everyone ponied up a buck and placed it on the glass. Thus, the flippers were all blind and the three "0" targets on the left as this was a Six Million Dollar Man. The winner took all the dollars. I had never heard of this before but I had a really great time on the game. Very interesting, and a slightly different skill set.

    Anyway, just throwing that out there. Was curious if this was something people knew about. It was fun. Oh, yeah, for amusement only. Oops.

    What time are those tourneys? I should be getting transferred to Clarksville in Feb or so.

    They are, unfortunately for those of us who work in the morning, at ten pm every Tuesday. Usually about 12-15 participants. Everyone puts five bucks in, double elimination. The pot can get pretty high.

    sounds great. It will be nice living in a city where there is a little love for pinball. I talked to a guy who lives close to me and collects. We were both relieved to know someone else was out there. Going to play his Scared Stiff, JM, and WW for the first time on each. More than excited.
