    Hi all, I wanted to share that I am starting a pinball website called This Week in Pinball (http://www.thisweekinpinball.com). I plan to post weekly on Mondays, and the post will include noteworthy happenings in the pinball world, such as new games/rumors/mods, production and coding updates, pinball show reviews and announcements, results from competitions, notable pinball streams/videos/podcasts, etc., along with a game of the week, website of the week, and a monthly challenge to be entered into a drawing for something pinball related.

    The plan is for each weekly post to contain short readable summaries, a snapshot of what’s happening since it is getting more difficult to keep up with everything. I posted the first weekly post this morning at http://www.thisweekinpinball.com.

    If you have anything you’d like to be included or see something I miss (which I’m sure will happen), shoot me an email at thisweekinpinball@gmail.com. Thanks!

    Alien Pinball Initial Thoughts - lots of pics & video links to Buffalo Pinball's recent stream - check it out! http://thisweekinpinball.com/alien-pinball-initial-thoughts/

    #14 9 months ago

    Nice little Alien write-up!

    But you know there's probably a whole group of militant pinsiders out there right now wanting to downvote it just because it used the phrase "world under glass," right?

    #15 9 months ago

    At least it didn't use the phrase 10k by Christmas or L*onman

    I'll try to make up for it next time by using the word "accoutrements"

    added to my RSS reader. I very much appreciate the weekly updates.

    Thanks so much, it was a long one this week!

    #41 6 months ago

    I believe in the "End of Post Bonus" section you are conflating two separate events. Trent Augenstein won the 24 Hour Final Battle at The Sanctum, in Meriden, CT. Gene X Hwang separately (with a nod to the name) ran the 24-Hour Pinball Battle for the Kids in San Francisco for charity.

    #42 6 months ago

    Yes I totally did, thanks for pointing that out. Two 24 hour battles confused me

    I’ll fix that tomorrow, thanks much!

    Thanks for doing these. Only feedback is that when viewing on my phone, the pictures in the article do some weird wrapping with the text.

    oh boy.

    One of my biggest take-aways from the whole jpop story, and what I've learned after handing money over to that numbskull, was to never go against my own business instincts again. If it doesn't add up, it doesn't add up. There is nothing magical about pinball that breaks all the laws of business and profit.

    So if whatever you have to share about deeproot is going to make people angry, that is not how you launch a business, especially in a niche market with limited customer base. So this is DOA, and someone else now is going to lose a bunch of money chasing a pipe dream.
