PinVault (Indianapolis)

Thanks to some real lucky connections, we were able to get into the PinVault for a couple of hours on Tuesday. What a great space and collection! Thanks to Matt, Ben, and Jon, for making it possible.

Special mention to some games i hadn’t played before and thoroughly enjoyed:

  • Victory
  • Hard Body
  • Future Spa

They also had the best working NBA Fastbreak i’d ever played, and a really great mix of early solid state, 80′s, and 90′s games. Not to mention some really nice beers on tap.

It’s worth noting that the beer selection at La Margarita (below PinVault) is OUT OF THIS WORLD. And over at New Day we tasted the Imperial Breakfast Magpie which was a goddam revelation. A fun night in Indy and my first real exploration of Fountain Square.

Total Nuclear Annihilation

TNA: I love it whether I fail or succeed. It is so fucking good it makes me want to cry.

Had a great time with Eric, Rob, and Chris playing dollar games at Brixie’s tonight. We played a lot of TNA and a bit of each of the other machines. I won zero, but i actually played pretty consistently and had some pretty great games. I really need to watch some tutorials and study the rules for these ones.

Brixie’s monthly tournament

Attended my first official pinball tournament at Brixie’s. In the past i’ve always arrived as the tourney was ending to play dollar games with the remnant. 

I’m not sure that I like tournaments. I was really nervous and there were a lot of people. On the plus side, I got to meet Krystle in real life for the first time. It was good making that connection and to meet some of her Belles and Chimes friends. 

Overall, my anxiety and the fact that i am not familiar with the rules for any of these machines made it less fun than it could have been. I’m still committed to doing these tourneys, but i need to get some practice in to actually enjoy it!
