OK, so this is not a pinball game in the strictest sense.

It is more of a hybrid bagatelle/table football game, but the play is similar to pinball.

I wanted to build a game that would be as fun as bagatelle, but with a little more skill involved.

I wasn”t very confident about building a satisfactory flipper or scoring mechanism, so I went with this hybrid. The game play is surprisingly good, and of course there is lots of potential for improvements and adjustments.

Before starting this project I did a lot of research about different DIY pinball games. Relevant ones I found on wtbblue.com are listed here: https://wtbblue.com/id/Pinball-Wizards/

The ball launcher and table football elements are standard parts bought online.

The balls are 15mm ball bearings.

The 3D Minecraft elements came in a very cheap pack of models, again bought online.

Very creative way to build the two hardest parts of a pinball table. The flippers and the score board. Well done.

I like your “flipper” mechanism. No hassle with solenoids :).

Got my vote! … To prevent the ball from going back into the Plunger Lane, add a Diverter at the end of the lane that opens one way.
