 It's the Christmas gift that no one expected ... or the Holiday curse that no one wanted! It's the seventh episode of The Meltdown Pinball Podcast! International Pinball Sensation, Krystle Gemnich of the Rip Tide Pinball Podcast joins The Meltdown as we sit in the audience during the Oktoberfest game reveal seminar at Chicago Pinball Expo.--After the introductions and a (very edited) seminar period where we talk under our breaths, at about 18:30 into this attempt at recording a podcast, we get the opportunity to step up to play American Pinball's newest offering. We don't go up there immediately of course. It's better to wait for the crowd rushing the game to drain away a bit first. This is followed by fly-on-the-wall coverage of whatever we talked about as we got our first flips on the new game. It's a good thing to listen to in the background while you do whatever and stuff--Also, guest starring International Internet Pinball Sensations Jack Danger of Dead Flip, Jeff Teolis of Pinball Profile, Ron Hallett, Jr. of Slam Tilt Podcast, Nitzan Gabai, Tommy Floyd, Koi Morris, Jason Rufer, and Al Cihak.--Intro and Outro Music: FunHouse Multiball (Matt Dibrindisi Mix)Santaur meme by: Joel Cohen
Nikki and Steve return, severely delayed but slightly more coherent. This was recorded moments after the STOMP tournament in Rochester, New York so it's a throwback to that time. A time right after my career and life started to change.This time, we talk about how Nikki enjoyed a 12-hour tournament and that sometimes, all you need is the meme. There's a meme for everything.Track: RetroVision - Campfire [NCS Release]Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.Watch:
Ep. 5 - The Atlanta Shuffle

Ep. 5 - The Atlanta Shuffle


It's Nikki (@KikasaurusRex) and Steve (@FunWithBonus) at our most Meltdown-y! Reporting from the Southern Fried Gaming Expo near Atlanta, Georgia are two very tired pinballers. We tried to do all the things at SFGE, and attempted to do a podcast afterward.This is the episode where we discover the cell phone microphone picks up everything, so apologies for the shuffling sounds that happen during the conversation.We have learned the Pinvasion Tournament will not be happening next year at Southern Fried Gaming Expo. Thanks to Bryan Broyles and his crew for running the tournament. I'm sure that this part of the event will be missed by many.This was before a major life change started happening for Steve. That was part of the reason for the delay between episodes.Track: Inukshuk - Too Far Gone [NCS Release]Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.Watch: Download / Stream:, #DeadFlipStream, #PAPAPinballFamily
