Description

On this episode of Our American Stories, Jeremy Saucier of the Strong Museum of Play shares the long, and surprising, history of pinball--from its origins in French parlor games, to its prohibition, and then to its emergence as the immersive and popular game that it is today. Adam Davis and Adam Johns met in grad school at Antioch University, and they've been using table-top games as a tool to encourage personal growth, teamwork, and problem solving. The late owner of the ABA’s Utah Stars, Bill Daniels, shares why he paid back all of the bankrupt team’s creditors… even though he had no legal obligation to do so.
