I just came across an announcement that the Canada Pincon is going to have a history of pinball booth with:

1932 Bally Goofy

1935 Bally Bumper

1932 Bally Ballyhoo

1939 Keeney Thriller

and a 1954 Bally Surf Club!

If you're in the area, check out the show at http://canadapincon.com - and let me know how you enjoy the history of pinball games!

Getting back to my roots a bit, thought I would talk a little about how to narrow down a backbox illumination problem in a Gottlieb woodrail, as a question came up on Pinside recently.

Lastly, we're headed towards the end of the Year of Flipperss - today's entry is 1935's Rockola "TNT": http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2576

As always, if you'd like to get in touch, you can email me at foramusementonlypodcast@gmail.com or call me on the bingos line at (724) BINGOS-1 - (724-246-4671) - thank you for listening and I'll talk to you next time.

Allentown Pinfest was last weekend and it was a lot of fun.  Thank you to friends new and old that made it a huge success for the Multi and for me.

The Multi played well at Allentown, despite a pretty bone-headed mistake I made in coding before the show... lots of compliments and lots of help forthcoming or received at the show.

I did sneak away and play the beautiful custom "Nightmare Before Christmas" machine (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-nightmare-before-christmas) - and the creator also learned about bingos in turn.

I'm looking forward to York now, and how I will implement the improvements planned (and maybe a couple of surprises)!

Today's Year of Flipperless game is United's 1946 "Sea Breeze" - a beautiful fun-looking game with multiple sequences.
