Triple Drain Pinball Podcast Ep 27: Travis Is All Over Bond!

Triple Drain Pinball Podcast Episode 27: Travis Is All Over Bond!


Hosts: Joel Engelberth, Tom Graf, & Travis Murie


In this episode we catch up on Free Play Florida, as well as some of the newer games that have been added to our collections. We dive deep into some Godzilla strategies… well “deep” for some of us. Travis shares his first-hand experience with Bond now that he has one. We also share our thoughts on what we are expecting from Bond 60th, as well as Joel’s first impressions of a Pinwoofer kit. Feel free to come laugh along with us!... I miss Karl already. 








Shoutout to Jackson Gee and his incredible artwork.
