Pinball which has been around since the 1870s requires a steady hand and flexible hips.Players showed off their moves at the Chicago Pinball Expo. One of nearly 4500 competitions around the world this year.
从十九世纪七十年代开始兴起的桌上弹球需要玩家手很稳,腰会扭。玩家在芝加哥的弹球博览会中能尽情展示自己的实力,这是今年全球近4500场比赛之一。
Pinball is not going away, it can’t be replicated so I think that’s why it never truly goes away.
桌上弹球不会落伍,因为它没法被山寨,所以我想这就是它为什么不会落伍的原因。
Zach Sharpe spokesman for the world’s leading pinball manufacturer Stern Pinball, is currently ranked No.1 at more than 55,000 ranked players.
Zach Sharpen是世界领先的桌上弹球机生产厂“斯特恩弹球机”的发言人,他本人位列5万5千位桌上弹球玩家之首。
I don’t care where I’m ranks.Whenever I did get a chance to compete, I wanna win and if I don’t win then you know, on to the next tournament.
我不在乎我排第几,我就是每次只要玩都想赢,要是赢不了,那就看下次比赛的。
The game attracts players of all ages including Escher Lefkoff who started playing before he was old enough to reach the flippers without help.Earlier this year at 13 he became the youngest world champion pinball player.
这个游戏吸引了各个年龄段的玩家,比如 Escher Lefkoff,在他靠自己还够不着弹球机手柄的时候就开始玩了,在今年早些时候13岁的他成为了世界上年纪最轻的桌上弹球世界冠军。
It was my day I played great that day and I won and is the most magical moment of my life. His father Adam is also a ranked player and there’s a bit of friendly rivalry in the household. Now of course Escher is one of the world championships and when we count world championships in our household I’ve won, let’s see, zero and Escher has one so Escher wins.
那天真是天时地利人和,然后我赢了,活着真是太好了。他的父亲Adam也是一个能排上名次的桌上弹球选手,在他们家里也上演着一场友谊赛。现在来说,当然Escher是世界级的冠军了,我们在家是怎么分胜负呢,就是比谁得的世界冠军多,我得过,零个,Escher得过一个,所以他赢了。
The resurgence of interest in Pinball has made the machines manufactures winners, too.Revenue at Stern Pinball this year was up 30% over 2016 which was up 40% over 2015. The factory produces about 50 games a day.
人们对桌上弹球兴致的复兴让弹球机生产厂家也成了赢家,斯特恩弹球机今年的收入比2016年增长了30个百分点,比2015年增长了40个百分点,这家工厂每天生产的弹球机数目约为50个。
It takes about 30 hours from start to finish.All these games are hand-built so it’s not like there’s machines automating this.
从开始到制作结束需要30个小时,所有的这些游戏机都是手工打造的,不是那种机械自动化生产的。
That includes making the cabinets, pressing the play field, running the wiring and installing around 3500 parts,all for the excitement of keeping that little super ball in play.
这包括制作游戏机柜,安装游戏轨道,运行线路和安装约3500个部件,这一切都是为了那个超级小球以及玩它的人的热情。
