This time last year, Kelley Daniel’s Pinball Palace in Brunswick, Ga., had just been named the No. 2 pinball arcade in the country and he was hoping for a surge in business as a result, but had to temporarily close his doors last spring due to Covid, according to the Brunswick News.
Now, after giving the business a facelift in 2020 and adding new machines to the 150-game arcade (with 100 pinball machines), he’s gunning for the No. 1 spot in the Twipy Awards. “People can’t believe we’ve got a place this big in a small town,” Daniel boasted.
The Twipy Awards honor everything pinball related. Up for Game of the Year: Heist by Multimorphic; Rick and Morty by Spooky; Stranger Things by Stern; Hot Wheels by American Pinball; Guns ‘N Roses by Jersey Jack; Avengers: Infinity Quest by Stern; Heavy Metal by Stern; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Stern.
