Plunge Flip Bump Score
Plunge, Flip, Bump and Score refers to the common features of a traditional pinball machine, the mechanics used in order to win. Pinball machines are a symbol of nostalgic Americana yet there is still a dedicated community of pinball players who compete in tournaments around the world.

Random and never the same twice, it pits a player’s skill and patience against the machine.
