They say it never drains in Southern California…

… liars! Every ball drains. Still, it’s a good name for a pinball tournament, held this past weekend in Riverside, CA. Jim, Karl, and Bob put on a great tournament, and it was perhaps the best and only place to play Warlok on location.

The four finalists were Cayle George, Johnny Modica, Keith Elwin, and Jim Belsito.  Keith Elwin won the Classics final with some monster games on Grand Lizard and Abra Ca Dabra.

    Iron man is able to score in the ten-digit range? I didn’t even know that was possible…

    Psst: NINE digit range. I don’t know of anyone reaching a billion on Iron Man. That would be amazing.
