Pinballz II


On a rainy Saturday afternoon, what better to do than to drop into Pinballz Arcade?  Of course I would search out my favorite coin pushing game – Wizard of Oz.  Today I was skilled or lucky, as I left the joint with lots of prize cards.  They have all sorts of vintage games to play here and it is easy to get lost in the fun for a few hours as the storm clouds pass by.  If you are in Austin, check out one of their three locations and have some fun!






Star Wars Uprising


At the beginning of the year, I was checking out the typical lists for best Apps of 2015.  One game, Star Wars Uprising, was included on many of the lists.  I tried it out and got hooked.  If you are a fan of Star Wars, give this one a try.  It is free, simple in concept, playable on a mobile device, and seems to have a good storyline backing it up.  Enjoy!


Wizard of Oz II


Yes, I have become sort of a regular customer at Pinballz since my first visit in September. I don’t know whether to curse or to thank Elaut Amusement Games – the creator of the Wizard of Oz Coin Pusher Game. It is addictively fun for some strange reason. I have collected most all of the player cards that fall off the edge including Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Glinda the Good Witch, and the Wicked Witch of the West. The one card that continues to elude me is Toto. I’m pretty sure Toto has special powers in this game.

Glinda, the Good Witch of the North: Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?
Dorothy: I’m not a witch at all. I’m Dorothy Gale from Kansas.
Glinda, the Good Witch of the North: Oh. Well, is that the witch?
Dorothy: Who, Toto? Toto’s my dog!


Wizard of Oz


By far, my favorite game at Pinballz Arcade was the Wizard of Oz Coin Pusher Game . As you can see in the pictures, you shoot coins into the game with the hopes of pushing prizes off the edge. The most valuable prize you can obtain are the Wizard of Oz cards. I told the Wicked Witch “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!” I did get her (along with several other cards). This game is so addicting!
