Who and why?

Pinballs aren't as common as they used to be but the fans are still out there. I built this site to help people share and find places were pinball is still alive.

My name is Colin and this is a, one-person, personal project. I designed the site and wrote both the front and back-end code myself. New features can take time to show up because of this, but it's a labour of love.
