We start the show with a round-up of the feedback from the digital pinball community about the Williams Pinball app.

Then we spend the remainder of the show going over some interesting news about a three-quarter size consumer pinball machine being sold in Walmart.

And now… on with the show

The community has had a good chance to have a go at the new tables and reaction is mostly positive.

The opinions are in: the pack is good!

Folks have not been so happy about the new timed events and general pricing options for the Universal Monsters pack.

I didn’t get much of a notification on Android when the new timed event was switched over to Creature. Is this happening to you?

We can confirm that there will be another Williams Pinball release before the end of 2019. 😉

Toyshock is producing a budget digital pinball machine with a massive bezel to be sold in the US first.

Other countries will follow in 2020 including Australia.

Since recording this episode, we can confirm speculation that Farsight is behind the software based on the fact they uploaded this video to their channel.

This is the only video Farsight has uploaded to their YouTube channel in nearly a year. 😿

I’ve done the order and the Aussie Peso exchange rate is killing me. 💵

Chris recounts a time when he was selling Z Cavaricci pants to Aussies in the ’80s.

It all relates back to the exchange rate, so go with us on the tangent.
