Humpday Wednesday #26 – played + unplayed Steam and PC games extravaganza + FX Tourney – at our PGM Twitch channel:  https://www.twitch.tv/todd_russell  live streaming from 6am – ??? PST (GMT-8)! Normally, we end around 11am PST, but today’s show end time might be different due to my wife having an unusual day off. Who knows, we might be able to coax her to be on the stream, as well.

Season 1 of Humpday Wednesday Pinball is over, but we’re still playing/streaming some pinball every Wednesday in addition to other PC games on the 4K Alienware setup.

You can search for “Humpday” here at PGM and find details on all 24 episodes of Season 1 Pinball + play and enter scores for any/all of the virtual pinball games we played on stream (and several not featured)
#######################################

In addition to what’s mentioned above, YOU can play, too. Some of our virtual pinball require Visual Pinball and Future Pinball software as well as the table files which are all free to download.

There is a spreadsheet where we share where to acquire the necessary pinball table files linked on every page at this blog and also here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iRcwa4znh8FL-0DdME5XNcQCM-CTjeTdPnfNcTrh9-E/edit?usp=sharing. Be sure to use default settings for all tables, unless otherwise noted and make sure you’re playing the version listed in the yellow highlight at the top of our iScored leaderboard page. Then, simply, play the game and try and beat your personal best. Once you’ve done so, share the score.

You can share on our PGM iScored here: https://www.iscored.info/?mode=public&user=Playgamesmore. Once we see some scores and activity one of our PGM members will add you to our semi-private Discord (if we don’t, then contact us and ask) where we score chase all kinds of different games: arcade games, modern Steam games, we stream games, play co-op and more. As of this writing we’re also score chasing arcade games and recapping them on Saturday mornings.

We are a friendly group, open to all adult gamers at least 18 years of age and look forward to seeing your scores!

Spread the love
