    On Dec. 30, I’ll be releasing on Pinball Profile, The Top 10 Most Intriguing Pinball People of 2018.

    Who do you think should be on this list, and why?

    Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:

    Depends what you mean by 'intriguing'. Are you referring to influential behind-the-scenes people, ones whose achievements outweigh their public profile, or ones that are enigmas whom you want to know more about?

    Intriguing: arousing one's curiosity or interest; fascinating. (side note, this is for things done in 2018).

    My list is done, just curious to see what others think. All good so far!

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    This may change, but these were the first ten to come to mind...
    Robert Mueller - DeepRoot pinball has created some buzz with big in 2018. Will we see something besides talk in 2019?
    John Popadiuk - More infamous then intrigue, but unfortunately still a major talking point in pinball.
    Keith Elwin - Great year for new designers and Keith Elwin is my #1 new designer for 2018.
    Eric Meunier - Another new designer with a hit on his hands. Launch somewhat hampered by slow production at JJP.
    Charlie Emery - Continues to be a model for startup companies, plus does a lot of work for others in the industry.
    Jeff Zornow - New artist who created one of the best art packages on his first machine, Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle.
    Zombie Yeti - Zombie Yeti is quickly etching his name alongside the all time great pinball artists.
    Deadflip (Jack Danger) / Straight Down The Middle (Greg & Zack) - Alright, I'm cheating here.
    Gary Stern - Unless there is some major shakeup, he's probably going to be on the list most years.
    Lyman Sheats - Continuing to raise the bar for coding.

    Good list...can't disagree with any of these. On my Pinball Profile list, you had 2 correct, 2 honorable mentions, and one other named for their work. Hope you enjoyed the list.

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    Not sure if anyone needs a recap, but at about 18:30 there is a review of the top-9 before announcing 10. I will eventually listen to the total list, but right now that is exactly what I needed and I was lucky enough to find it quickly.

    Whew! Good thing my Pinball Profile episodes are short. Imagine trying to find it if I went 2+ hours.
