Deadpool’s Rulesheet, Code Update, Trolling

Stern released a small code update for Deadpool last week to version 0.85 – for details click here.

If you haven’t checked out the Deadpool Rulesheet on Tilt Forums, you should – it is getting filled in nicely.  Check it out here!!

Anyone else noticed the plastic on Deadpool that has his “To Do list”?  I took this pic at a local arcade:

The only company saying pinball is “easy” is deeproot Pinball, so this appears to be a bit of deeproot trolling from Stern.  By the way, deeproot Pinball has gone silent…what are they up to?


The Athens Pinball Museum

The first pinball museum in Greece has opened!  It is called the Athens Pinball Museum and features over 100 pinball machines – check out their Facebook page here and find out more here!
