The Guinness Book of World Records to Publish Las Vegas Tournament Pinball High Scores

Tim Arnold Tim Arnold a 50-year-old self proclaimed pin head, is finally able to share his dream with the general public with his new Hall of Fame & Museum now open for the public to enjoy the Bronze Era of the Pinball Age. The First Annual Guinness Masters Tournament will take place at his arcade in order to induct the ten best pinball players into the pinball hall of fame. Arnold is a veteran arcade operator who made it big in the '70s and '80s, in an age when pinball, not pixels, ruled the game rooms. In 1976 he opened Pinball Pete's in Lansing, Mich. with his brother, and it quickly became a gamer's mecca that's still open today. At the height of their success, the Arnold brothers weren't counting coins; they were counting scoopfuls of them with aluminum ice shovels, and hauling them to the bank in sacks. When Arnold sold his part of the business to his sibling and moved to Las Vegas in 1990,at 35, he never worked another day in his life. Tim Arnold raises money at his famous Annual "Fun Nights" Event for his Pinball Hall of Fame and Museum Project
Arnold has given to the local Salvation Army more than $100,000, largely through "Fun Nights," private fundraisers at his southeast Las Vegas home, where he'd put his roughly 1,000 machines on free play. Played hard. The hall's museum status belies Arnold's fervent view that pinball is meant to be played -- slapped, nudged, shook, cursed at, hugged -- not tutted over. Arnold is going to maintain the games, where you can play them like they were meant to." His arcade is a place to stop and have a wave of pure nostalgia. This stuff is still in your mind somewhere, and when you see it, you just get a backflash of the good old days, There it is! I remember! There's a lot involved in this pinball process. There's the art, there's the scoring and how it's done. There are many more design disciplines in one of these than there is in a video game." Pinball is skill, but it's also completely random," Arnold says. "Kids play video games and they say it takes skill to play a video game. No, it takes rote memorization of moves. There's no randomness to it. In pinball, the ball could go this way, it could go that way. It's completely random. Tim states that with the classic video games, we stop at 8-bit machines. "And no kung-fu video games. Those are anti-social and you learn nothing from them. Arcade Location: 3330 E. Tropicana Ave. Info:

Tim Arnold says, "Come one, come all and set the Pinball Benchmark for tomorrow's standards!"
The Ten (10) Pinball Selections selected for the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records 1. The Addams Family Pinball (Bally/Williams, 1992) 2. Twilight Zone Pinball (Bally, 1993) 3. South Park Pinball (Sega & Stern, 1999) 4. Taxi Pinball (Williams, 1988) 5. Creature from the Black Lagoon Pinball (Bally, 1992) 6. Scared Stiff Pinball, (Bally, 1996) 7. 1965 Kings and Queens Pinball (Gottlieb, 1965) Link 8. 1976 Bally Capt. Fantastic Pinball (Bally, 1976) 9. 1975 Wizard Pinball (Bally, 1975)

General Pinball Manufacturers Directions for Game Play Link Tim Arnold's Pinball Museum Tropicana Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada 89121 Dates: April 28-30, 2006 At last count, Tim Arnold's Tropicana Avenue/Pecos Road Arcade has 175 pinball machines spanning almost 50 years -- is part shrine, part museum, part charity and part arcade. Besides over 175 classic pinball's to play at Tim Arnolds Museum, he also has the following classic video games: Video Pinball, Mario Brothers, Outrun, Asteroids, Battlezone, Space Invaders, Frogger, Paperboy, Speedway, Paddle Battle, Star Wars, Crazy Climber, Tempest, Major Havoc, Atari Football. Link These pinball's and classic video games are on rotation with his 1,000 plus games in a nearby warehouse behind his home near Russell Road & Sandhill in East Las Vegas, NV. Half of his warehouse features about 450 pinball games, set up and ready to operate. The World Pinball Championships were held in Las Vegas (at the Sahara Hotel) which makes Las Vegas the perfect place for a Hall of Fame Pinball Museum. Who doesn't want to relive their youth one last time? Who would I like to see at this Hall of Fame Competition in Vegas? I don't know what great classic pinball and video gamers will show up but it would be a home run event if Pinball Master, Jim Belsito of the Inland Empire League of Southern California, from Rialto, California could put up some pinball world records. As he has several pinball records already and is ranked number 5 in the world at this time. Some other greats; Bowen Kerins, Neil Shatz and Lyman Sheats. Because this is not a "Money Purse Event" with a big purse prize, I doubt that the above great pinball players will show up. Another aspect of this event is there not being a lot of practice at home before showing up, because some of these pins are so rare that Tim Arnold has the only one that is still working, after being kicked around and beat up for the last 30+ years in local bars and then being stored for another 10+ years. As for video gamers that I'd love to see show up because of their current world records and current tournament standings I'd like to see the following great show up at the Hall of Fame Pinball Masters Tournament, and make some video game records: Some of the best Coin-Operated Video Game Classic Players Names: Dwayne Richard, Billy Mitchell; player of the century, Gary Sandinista Whelan from London, England, Doris Self; Q*bert Champion and the Challenge Arcade Totally Amused, Apollo and Funspot Video Game Champions. Donald Hayes and David Nelson are the best players in New Hampshire and possibly in the world because of their classic video game tournament wins and the many classic coin-op video game world records under their belts. We might even see a marathon or two if any of these gamers show up. After the Dodge City classic games toughest gun showdown is complete, maybe a few of those high score players could come to Las Vegas as well. The Apollo; Pompano beach, Florida Superstar rivalry should be just about done by now and we will finally know which classic coin-operated gamers will be crowned in this wild frontier. The California Extreme event in San Jose, California is one of the best pinball events in the year and it is right around the corner as well.

Hoose of Fairfield, Iowa. To see a larger version of the poster click here: Link Twin Galaxies to Supply Pinball Records to Guinness World Records(tm) For the first time in its 52-year history, Guinness World Records(tm) will be publishing pinball scores. (The Guinness Book was collecting and printing Coin Operated Video Game High Scores through Walter Day's Master Annual Tournaments in the Golden Era of the 1980's. The scores were published from 1984-1986, but however, the Guinness Book stopped printing High Scores in 1987 because they felt there were to many problems with Rom Sets and variations across the country.) (Only a controlled playing environment can World Records be watched by Referee's and settings can be maintained to the highest scrutiny, in that of a Tournament situation.) As part of a partnership with the Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard, the world authority on electronic gaming records, the Guinness World Records 2007(tm) Book will include a table of pinball high scones on ten different games, researched and verified by Walter Day of Twin Galaxies. The List of Inaugural Pinball High Scores to be the following:

1.  The Addams Family Pinball
2.  Twilight Zone Pinball
3.  South Park Pinball
4.  Taxi Pinball
5.  Creature from the Black Lagoon Pinball
6.  Scared Stiff Pinball
7.  Kings and Queens Pinball
8.  Capt. Fantastic Pinball
9.  Whizard Pinball
10. Lawman Pinball
Only at the First Annual Pinball Masters Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada will these Guinness World Records Scores be accepted. So you have to show up to the contest on April 28-30, 2006 and win one or more of the above (10) Pinball High Scores to get published in the 2007 Guinness Book. The Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame, opened in February, 2006 to commemorate the history of pinball, will be the official site of the event. Organized by Tim Arnold and other members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collector's Club, the Pinball Hall of Fame enjoys a non-profit charter and is the world's only museum created solely to document the history of Pinball. To bring organization to the process of gathering scores in time for the May 1st publishing deadline of the Guinness World Records 2007 Book, Twin Galaxies has resurrected its most famous contest: the Video Game & Pinball Masters Tournament, which hasn't been conducted since 1997. This year's edition of the contest -- as well as the 1997 Video Game & Pinball Masters Tournament -- are both descended from the original contest that Twin Galaxies created in the 1980s to gather scores for the U.S. edition of the record book, which was then called the Guinness Book of World Records. The editors at Sterling Publishing Co., Inc., publishers of the U.S. edition at that time, designated Walter Day an Assistant Editor, and put him in charge of verifying all video game records for the annual volume. To facilitate the process of supplying Sterling Publishing with verified high scores, Twin Galaxies created the Video Game Masters Tournament, which was conducted on more than 100 video game titles in dozens of locations throughout North America. The results were published in the 1984-1987 U.S. editions of the Guinness Book of World Records. Today, in 2006, to continue the tradition of supplying world records to the Guinness World Records Book, (After a long hiatus) this modern incarnation of the contest will focus mostly on pinball with some video game titles thrown in. The Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame can be found at: Location 3330 E. Tropicana, Las Vegas NV 89121 North West corner of Tropicana and Pecos. About 10 blocks from the "strip" straight down Tropicana, about a $10 taxi ride. Next to the Tropicana Cinema $2 movie theatre. If you somehow miss the machines staring at you through the window, its just around the corner from the movie theater, between the comic shop and Putters bar.

Link Las Vegas is known for the unusual and offbeat. Places like the Liberace Museum, the Neon Museum, the Clown Factory, The Elvis Museum, the Barry Manilow Store, the Pinball Hall of Fame... Wait a second. The Pinball Hall of Fame? What exactly is that? Or more importantly, why exactly is there a Pinball Hall of Fame? The Pinball Hall of Fame is an attempt by the members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club to house and display the world's largest pinball collection, open to the public. A not-for-profit corporation was established to further this cause. The games belong to one club member (Tim Arnold), and range from 1950s up to 1990s pinball machines. Since it is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are the prevalent, as this was the "heyday" of pinball. There are no video games or "ticket spitters" (aka kiddie casinos) here. It's all pure pinball from the past. And since it's a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities. 4500 square feet is dedicated to the Pinball Hall of Fame, where the entire family can enjoy non-violent arcade games for small dinero. This is truly a pinhead's ultimate dream. All machines are available for play, so not only can you see them, you can actually play your old favorites. The machines are all restored to like-new playing condition by people that love pinball and understand how a machine should work. All older pinball's are set to 25 cents per play, and newer 1990s models are set to 50 cents per play. A far better return on fun than any Las Vegas casino environment, and the PHoF actually has windows and a clock in the room! It takes more than slot machines to keep tourists happy, and the Pinball Hall of Fame is trying its best to do just that. The Pinball Hall of Fame is a registered 501c3 non-profit. It relies on visitors stopping by to play these games, restored pinball machine sales, and 'This Old Pinball' repair DVD videos (available for sale at the museum). The PHoF has also helped out with fundraising for the local Salvation Army, accepting donations to benefit them. There is a candy vending stand, where the entire $.25 of each quarter goes directly to the Salvation Army. Local businesses that have just a few square feet of floor space that would like to help with this project, or anyone interested in available machine sales are encouraged to contact Tim Arnold at the PHoF (Pinball Hall of Fame) for more information. Location 3330 E. Tropicana, Las Vegas NV 8910x North West corner of Tropicana and Pecos. About 10 blocks from the "strip" straight down Tropicana, about a $10 taxi ride.

During the heyday of video games, the master tournament brought in some scores so high that they have yet to be beaten today, over 20 years later.

PAPA Professional Pinball League

The Professional and Amateur Pinball Association (PAPA) is an organization 
supporting the game of pinball as a recreational and competitive sport. PAPA
is currently owned and operated by Kevin Martin and is based in Scott Township,
Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh.

The main activity of the organization is hosting the annual World Pinball Championships,
which brings hundreds of serious pinball players from around the world to compete for
a number of large cash prizes. The tournament runs for four days and allows competitors
to register in any of three different divisions in order to accommodate beginners and
skilled players alike. Each occurrence of the tournament has been denoted by a number;
for example, the 2005 tournament is known as PAPA 8.

Tournament Format
The format of the PAPA tournaments has changed over time. In the current format,
players declare a division (A, B, or C, with A being the most skilled) and may
enter as many times as they like, paying entry fees each time they choose to play.
During an entry, a player will choose and play a certain number of games from a
predetermined bank of machines (for example, five out of a possible nine machines).
Each game score is assigned a point value based on how it compares to all of the other
entries on that same machine. Interestingly, this point value may decrease over time 
as more games are played by everyone. An entry's overall score is simply the sum of 
the individual machine scores; thus, it too can decrease over time.

A player's best entry over the course of the qualifying period determines the player's
qualifying score, and the qualifying scores are used to determine the rank of each
player. A player's rank may go up or down, even without continuing to play. There is
a fair amount of strategy that can be employed to deal with this.

At the end of the qualifying period (typically several days), the top-ranked players 
in each division (the actual number varies) compete in a head-to-head, bracketed 
format to determine the winners.

Becoming one with the machine, and of whipping the game into a frenzy without having any of lifes distractions get in the way. The flipper fingers move like lightening with the skill of a tight rope artist within the finger tips. You know your beat when the other player is so confident that they drain the first two balls just to give you a fair chance, and then the killer Jackpot lights with only three seconds left in the game and one last shot gives the advantage with a knock on the side of the game giving the free play. Your game is dust and it is time to play again. Trivia: How did Tommy, who was deaf, dumb and blind in the 1969 "Rock Opera Song" and movie by The Who, become a Pinball Wizard without using all of his faculties? Album: Tommy Date: 1969 Answer: The character Tommy played pinball by feeling the vibrations of the machine giving him a clue as what was going to happen next.
