Set Phasers to Fun

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Last weekend the annual Slabtown Showdown pinball tournament was held here in Portland and for fun I modified several machines for use as casual side tournament. Time Machine pinball was modified, so the left and right flipper buttons were swapped, Bad Cats lower playfield glass was covered with tape to block the view of the flippers and Star Trek 25th had light gun controlled flippers.

In the following video I show how I modified Star Trek to flip when shot with a light gun.

Danny B. won $50 on the reversed flipper game and Mike S. won $30 each for the blocked flippers and light gun game.
