Not sure but I found his car.
IMHO, a true Pinball Wizard is ANY human being that can walk up to ANY pinball machine, start a game with 1 credit and leave it with more than one credit on the machine when the game is completed on a consistent basis.
My son has a couple pins in his gameroom and can NATURALLY beat any competitor on them because he has played the game many, many times. Does this make him a Pinball Wizard, NO! Though he is good...............
I can go into his shop and play any working (usually between 6 - 10) pin that I haven't played in months (or years) and walk away with free credits on the game, and most times bored of the game already (most recent ACDC)......... have been able to do this since I was about 10.
You need to make snide remarks to woman and yell at them when they play because you are waiting.
REVISITED: Define Pinball Wizard
"A Pinball Wizard is a player whose natural abilities combined with years of practice allow them to keep seemingly un-savable balls in play, make strings of combination shots that make other's heads spin, perform feats of ball control and flipper dexterity that seem to defy physics, all coalescing in a tantric dance that makes the casual observer believe the player is in possession of arcane majiks bartered for in the back-room a long-thought-dead arcade that no one can recall the exact location of." -cody chunn
