The Pinball Event of the Year – Coming March 27th!

TWIPYs Overview

This Week in Pinball is excited to announce the fourth annual TWIPY Pinball Awards will be taking place again this March!  The TWIPYs are an annual celebration of the pinball hobby, where the public votes for their favorite features from pinball machines released in 2020, as well as their favorite pinball content creators. Voting runs from January 1st through January 31st.

This year the TWIPYs will be hosted by two well-known personalities in the world of gaming, Jack Danger of Dead Flip and Imoto Arcade.  The awards show will include many celebrities from the music and film industry, along with many well-known pinball personalities.  More information on the awards show will be coming after the voting period has closed.


We’ve put together a new website for the TWIPY Awards so that there is one location to view all of the greatest in pinball. The site has information on past winners, show videos, show photos, news updates, and much more.

Check out:


The TWIPY Committee returns, and this year it is comprised of Steve Bowden, Imoto Harney, Josh Sharpe, Lloyd Olson, Joel Reeves, William Oetting, and Jeff Patterson.  The Committee is responsible for determining game eligibility and categories, show and schedule coordination, and most importantly, maintaining the integrity of the voting process through our online secure voting process, and helping review and validate votes and results.

New Voting Format, Eligibility Requirements, Meeting Minutes

New for this year, voters can choose their top three for each category if they wish. Those will count as three “points” for 1st pick, two points for 2nd pick, and one point for third pick for January voting, and will determine the winners of the categories. We also have an Eligibility Document which will cover the Eligibility requirements for each category, which will be tweaked and improved year to year. Finally, this year we will be releasing the Minutes from TWIPY Committee Meetings.
