Pinball is a type of arcade game, usually coin-operated, where a player attempts to score points by manipulating one or more metal balls on a playfield inside a glass-covered case called a pinball machine
History prior to arriving to UCC
Donated by [FEL] early 2010 to form the guts of a very heavy kiosk terminal (ex-Centerlink) he'd bought in an auction.
UCC machine history
The kiosk lacked a mouse and a control key (amongst other things, such as dignity), so that got thrown out pretty quickly. Got a graphics card and a nice big LCD screen a few months later.
The pinball that the clubroom knows today is a very different pinball. This wiki page is not up to date.
