Understanding Pinball Video Series

Centaur II

Centaur II in the Understanding Pinball series

We feature a lot of pinball video tutorials on Pinball Head. Most of them are from the PAPA crew and their great series of Bowen Kerin tournament scoring videos. However, one man predates the “instructional pinball videos” that most of us view today. That man is Todd Tuckey.

In 1989, Todd Tuckey from TNT Amusements filmed a series of instructional pinball videos called Understanding Pinball. In these videos he explains the basic features and point system for each game featured. Currently these videos are only available on YouTube, but when asked Todd stated that these videos will be released in a three part series on DVD this Fall. Todd also tipped us off that they are currently two weeks into shooting a pilot for a reality show based on pinball and video games.

A reality show about pinball? Prepare to eat the ratings dust, American Idol.
