Between the Bumpers - Q&APosted by: Angela Yen on October 11, 2016 / 4:57 PM
On Thursday October 6, the Museum of Vancouver got to know another fascinating collector featured in current exhibition All Together Now: Vancouver Collector & Their Worlds. Kyle Seller's vintage pinball machines including, Funhouse (1988), Cyclone (1988) and Jack-Bot (1995) and classic arcade games like Donkey Kong are on display and also available to public to try out and play! Seller was joined by the current International World Pinball Champion, Robert Gagno and pinball expert and moderator of the night, Tommy Floyd. Together they walked the guests through the pinball room discussing the development of the game over the years, the history of each individual machine and how they got invovled in the world of pinball.
The night capped off with Seller opening up one of the machines revealing the inner workings of a dot-matrix-display (DMD) pinball machine, and Gagno's intense playing demo where he gave a glimpse into how a pro pinballer plays the game.
