in Games, High Fives

I know this probably isn’t much to all y’all but I had a pretty epic run in The Pinball Arcade on one of my favorite tables last night, and cleared a billion points on The Addams Family:

That ended up almost doubling my previous high score, and I managed it despite completely bombing Tour the Mansion. This run is pretty decent because I front-loaded the points; I lost two balls just trying to lock the third ball for multiball because of the stupid playfield magnets.

TAF really is a well-designed table; everything is in just the right position to demand some timing skill. Emulating it isn’t the same as playing the actual pin, but with our main local pinball gathering place closing at the end of the year, The Pinball Arcade may end up being all I have left. I’m happy the FarSight team is doing what they can to preserve the hobby digitally because a lot of these tables will soon start just being gone as more tables enter disrepair.

The day before that, I had a 600 million point-plus run that was almost all in the third ball; if you want to see that you can check it out as I was streaming at the time.

If you like what you see, please follow my channel on Twitch. I try to broadcast at least a couple of times per week. It’s not always pinball. :)
