Seattle’s bar scene has lately gotten a lot more colorful lately as its pinball scene has exploded. One faction looking to direct the influx of people in the pinball community are women. They want to shape pinball into a haven away from the toxic baggage found in some gaming communities. Their preferred weapon of choice? Inclusive Ladies Night Tournaments. While Fremont’s Add-a-Ball has had Babes in Pinland for nearly four years running, other bars are adding tournament nights. Greenwood’s Hounds Tooth Public House has added 10 pinball machines in the last year, and just started hosting monthly women’s tournaments. Featuring cash prizes and jello shots, organizers like Megan Czhar and Maureen Hendrix hope they can build up the burgeoning pinball scene by bring new women into the fold.
