Of course geeks, freaks and fans of Douglas Adams Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy know the number 42 as the be-all/end-all! Randomly totally non-pinball but potentially fun: 42 Clever Quotes from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – TCK Publishing

Hola! Got to flip the following barbecue slathered, need wet naps after eating/playing, firsthand:

This is odd, but definitely the author definitely loses points for being “anonymous.” Is this somebody with an axe to grind against Stern, a cowardly troll or just somebody that worries about personal backlash by signing a name to a point of view? I didn’t know “Anonymous Participant” was even a thing on FB/Meta/whatever the heck they are calling themselves these days.

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! Game on, everybody!

Spread the love
