Around the Playfield with CrazyLevi
The Start Button: How did you first get into pinball?
When I was a kid I was into arcade video games, pinball always seemed unspeakably lame and when I did try it, a ball would get stuck or something was broken. Later on as a teenager I’d find games like High Speed and Cyclone in hotel arcades on vacation and started to really get into them, and a little later, a friend got a High Speed in his home and we really played the crap out of it. It was amazing to have access to this thing just a short bike ride from my house. Later on in college the student union game room got in classics like Theater, Addams Family, and Creature, and I was hooked.
The Plunge: What was the first pinball machine you bought?
Argosy, a great Williams EM. It was in my budget and chose from about half dozen games of similar vintage and value I was looking at – made the right choice and still have it.
The Skill Shot: What is your best pinball achievement or favorite pinball moment?
Winning PAPA C a few years ago was a total blast since it was my first real pinball tournament, and I have some other great memories of doing well and having fun at tournaments.
