Podcast Episode 26 – Pinball Fever & the Arcade Experience


Join Preston and Patrick for a fantastic 26th episode of the Gameroom Junkies Podcast. We are experiencing pinball fever with a detailed discussion of Preston’s trip to PAPA World Headquarters for Pinburgh 2013. We also have a wonderful interview with IFPA President and top-ranked pinball player Josh Sharpe. Next we have an awesome in-depth interview with Adam Pratt, owner of the Game Grid Arcade in Utah and author of the new book “The Arcade Experience” to find out about the current state of arcades and Family entertainment centers and where the future is headed. We mix both pinball and arcade talk as we take a look back at all the different iterations of Star Trek games throughout history, learn an important tip in our “Just the Tip” segment, and of course, as we keep you up-to-date on the happenings of our own gamerooms. Buckle up! It’s long, but fun ride!
