Bada Bing! The Soprano’s (Stern 2005) is now playing at the John Curtin Hotel. Plays great, has a snazzy colour DMD and swearing is enabled. Food is great at the Curtin currently, countered only by the worst smelling toilets in Melbourne! Great pub none the less.. worth a visit!

Note: If, after playing, the player activates the flippers in an LLRLLRLLRLLRLLR pattern, the words “Secret Message” and the number 742. Someone give it a try and send me a photo!

Good value at $1 per game. The ‘magic box’ is a little temperamental and the machine is rough around the edges generally. Worth a look if you’re in the area though.

HUGE night of pinball at the Golden Fleece Hotel for the Argonauts first ever ‘monthly quest’. A tough field of 30 players, including some of Melbourne’s best, battled it out for the points and prizes. Hats off to Geoff and co for putting on such a great event in an exciting new format. Bring on next month!
1st: Jordan Tredaway
2nd: Richard Rhodes
3rd: Luke Marburg
4th: Martin Robbins
