Customer Comments
"I learned things I didn't know about machines I've owned for years. Loved the video links. The links to the manufacture's promotional videos are especially cool. If folks haven't seen the promo video for Fish Tales then they need to grab a beer, open the Pinball Book for iPad and watch it."
