Watching a Real-Life Family Play (Pinball) Better is So Much Fun!
The Pinball Mafia is about the pinball playing exploits of the real-life Moncla family, who for two hours each week, chat; and (of course) play pinball. Every other week, the family participates in Mafia Trivia, a segment consisting of twenty pinball-related questions using a variety of question-answer formats.
Although the stream is intended to be causal and entertaining, the family is serious in improving their pinball playing ability. Each week, the Monclas have a friendly competition amongst themselves using Pinburgh-style scoring. For the final game each night, the clan plays their currently playing game using Powerballs, where the game is twice is difficult; and is worth twice as many points (the latter being reminiscent of later rounds of Family Feud). And the results have shown, as one of its members (Preston) is a five-time IFPA State Champion.
Top it off with their youngest (Kelly) asking at the end of the night, “If you like pinball…”, with the entire family saying in unison, “Then we love you!”, and you have an experience that makes you feel that you are honorary member of this family.
Overall, this is one of the best pinball streams on Twitch and is worth checking out.
