Pinball Isn’t as Random as it Seems

(YouTube link)

People who grew up with video games look at a pinball machine and think that there's no strategy, it's just a matter of keeping the ball in play and listening to random noises. Those of us who grew up playing pinball know better. I was never the greatest pinball player, but I managed pretty well to keep the ball in play long enough to score points, but not nearly as well as someone who had studied a machine and maximized his/her strategy. Roger Sharpe knows how to do that, and gives us some tips on the intricacies of scoring big in pinball. -via Boing Boing

Love pinball, especially those circa 1970. Never did care for the electronic/video games. My bucket list has the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas on top. Hope I make it.
