2-Player Pinball Machine: Ain’t Seen Nothing Like It In Any Amusement Hall

Typically, pinball is a one player at a time game, but artist Cristiana Felgueiras of Get Hands Dirty has created an awesome two player pinball machine that two players can use simultaneously. She had some help from Inventables‘ X-Carve 3D carving machine.

Both ends of the plywood and acrylic pinball table slopes up towards the middle, so both players’ balls can possibly dart across to the other player’s side.

This is a great idea. I love me a game of pinball, so naturally I would love to try this out. Check out Cristiana’s project video, and her Inventables project page, where she shows you the steps to build one for yourself using about $129 worth of supplies (not including the cost of the carving machine.)

It looks like it plays very well and would be a lot of fun. It’s sort of like air hockey, but with flippers. I would love to see people make more of these. I would play it for hours.
