COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Arcade Super Awesome is starting the 5th season for its competitive pinball league.
The league meets every Thursday evening at 7 pm. Registration is $10. Owner of Arcade Super Awesome and league founder John Geiger says the league is a great way to meet people and enjoy a classic game.
“The great thing is that it’s incredibly social,” said Geiger. “[There’s] a lot of personal interaction. [You] make a lot of new friends. You don’t have to be great at pinball.”
Any money that doesn’t go toward trophies and prizes is donated to a charity called Project Pinball.
Project Pinball is a Florida based charity that specializes in putting pinball machines into children’s hospitals nationwide.
“I think it’s amazing to do something like that for charity,” said pinball player Deborah Tahlman. “Pinball is fun, charity is fun, do them together.”
