Looking for a pinball machine to play? Try Pinball Rebel!

April 9, 2009

One common problem I see when it comes to arcades over all is that sometimes, people don’t know where to look for one. The yellow pages is a good start but it seems that not everyone always checks the yellow pages. To combat that, we have seen a couple of online efforts where arcade fans have put together very useful websites where players can locate an arcade near them – most notably Arcade Finder and Arcade Fly. What if you are just in the market for some pinball however? While these sites might help, they are focusepinreblogod on arcades which may or may not include a pinball machine on-site to play. To remedy this problem, Stern has given the nod to a website called Pinball Rebel, which in addition to including a lot of information on different pinball games has also added a pinball finder feature so players can hunt down a machine specific to their tastes. I tested it out by adding my two machines to the list from my own arcade and it works just fine although it would be nice if there were a feature where you could upload multiple pins to one location in one setting but for now it’s a good start. As it grows, it should be an excellent resource for players to find their favorite games that they otherwise might have overlooked in their area.
