Buffalo Pinball has been sharing live pinball gameplay, tutorials, and knowledge since February 2015. We’re streaming pinball live on Twitch five days of week. We also have a successful pinball podcast, “Bro, do you even talk pinball?”, that we create each month. And if that’s not enough, we run all the pinball tournaments and leagues in Buffalo. Sometimes, we even sleep.
Several of our fans asked that we create a Patreon page and we’re happy to oblige. Creating all this content is meaningful for us, but it can also be expensive and exhausting.
That’s why we’d like to ask you to consider supporting us by donating monthly to the cause. Donations are a way of thanking us. It shows that you value what we do and want us to continue.
When we reach a minimum of 200 patrons a month, we’ll fly out to the 2017 Pinball Expo and will do a panel discussion (provided we’re given the opportunity).
