New Video of Magic Girl Pinball Machine from Pinball Expo

Last week's Pinball Expo in Chicago featured a lot of cool games, such as the first ever chance for the public to play Stern Pinball's James Bond and Pinball Brothers' Queen machines. Perhaps the rarest game to appear at the show was an actual working version of the controversial John Popadiuk game Magic Girl. A group of Dutch gentlemen took Popadiuk's never completed game and magically made it work, OK it wasn't magic but rather a lot of hard work. One of the games that these individuals fixed made its way to this year's Expo.

Jeremy at Pinball Mayhem reached out to me this morning to let us all know that he recently uploaded footage of Magic Girl in action to his YouTube channel. So here is footage of the very rare machine being played at the event. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing! I played it 4 or 5 times at expo and it is addictive. Like when you got off a rollercoaster and got back in line addictive.

Great video and thanks for sharing. In person it is simple stunning. It just is. It is a challenging but super cool and fun. While I didn't get multi-ball or upper playfield with the magnetic flippers, I did levitate and that was cool!

The best part was the folks I met and talked to in the line. People were beyond super friendly and nice and from all backgrounds. Cheers expo.

If you you have any skill, you better use it now. 😀
