Each Pinball Table is a machine for generating Narratives with sound, where, at each step, progress in accretion and detail is registered in numerical terms. There are rewards for achievement, and a light show that accompanies the action. Each table has its own context in story line. Although I have played the tables on no more than a dozen times, I knew that the possession of the Narrative Generator in my own house would enslave me. Participation in a Games Arcade was out of the question because of unseemly andf raucous companions, There as also a problem with hand eye coordination.
