"Intro." That's what I wrote in this spot when I put the majority of this week's arcade and pinball news together last night. I had every intention of writing some sort of introduction, but then a busy work day, youth soccer and high school lacrosse games struck. So no intro (unless this counts lol).

Having said that, this was an eventful week so dig in and enjoy. Notice the "New And Improved" fancy lines between articles now :) .

Have a great weekend!

Pittsburgh is a Pinball Paradise. These locations are just the tip of the iceberg.

The San Antonio pinball community, in conjunction with Project Pinball, is holding a charity auction to help pay the significant debt that Barry Oursler and his wife incurred after his medical benefits were cut off by Deeproot Pinball.

In addition to the Project Pinball auction, a charity pinball tournament is being held at What's Brewing Coffee Roasters on Sunday April 24th in Barry's honor.

As someone who has racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills over his lifetime, I can imagine how devastating it must be for a family to experience a serious illness without having insurance. I've shared links to both events below for anyone who is helping Barry's wife Kathy. Thanks.

"Barry Oursler was an amazing pinball game designer and was loved and admired by so many in the pinball world. He met Kathy in 2018 and brought her into that world shortly after they started dating. They married in 2019, and he quickly became a loving part of our family. He had never been an Uncle and was so happy to become "Uncle Barry." Barry loved his family in Chicago, San Antonio and his friends all over the world.

Barry lost his income and health insurance in 2021 while battling cancer. Needless to say, his medical bills, along with monthly bills, quickly escalated. After a lengthy stay in the hospital last December, we found his cancer returned and spread. He was advised to restart his treatment; however, his Medicare would not be effective until February 1st. He started his new chemo treatments on 2/15 and 2/16 but had an adverse reaction within a few days. He was hospitalized on 2/20 and passed away shortly after on 2/21. His passing has been devastating to everyone, especially Kathy, who has been left with an overwhelming amount of debt as she grieves the loss of her loving husband.

Please help us relieve some of this burden as she comes to grips with how she is moving forward without him."
