On February 27th, The Strong National Museum of Play opened a permanent exhibit, highlighting the evolution of the pinball playfield from Whiffle (1931) to today. “These artifacts illustrate how quickly the pinball playfield evolved from a relatively simple board with pins and scoring holes to a popping and flipping electro-mechanical marvel. And these are just a sampling of the more than 250 historically significant video arcade and pinball machines collected by The Strong in recent years,” says Jeremy Saucier, assistant director for The Strong’s International Center for the History of Electronic Games.
