Pinball machines are a kind of buy mode object in The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 2 for console, The Sims Castaway Stories and The Sims 3 Store which raise the fun need when used. If a Sim is playing a pinball machine, another Sim may join him or her.

The Sims[edit | edit source]

The Sims introduced a pinball machine that both children and adults could play. It can be placed on residential or community lots. If placed on a community lot, Sims will be charged to play. Up to two Sims can play at a time. Occasionally, the pinball machine will break, and must be repaired in order to use it again. The description and name of the pinball machine makes a reference to The Who rock opera "Tommy", which was centered on a pinball player.

Not every Sim is a pinball wizard, but they would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to love playing on the "See Me, Feel Me" pinball table! Chrome plated steel balls bounce off rubber coated electric bumpers in a cacophony of movement, noise, flashing lights and the ever elusive high score. By who? By Tommi Co. of course!

The Sims 2[edit | edit source]

The Sims 2 introduced two pinball machines in the base game, one more in University, and another as a career reward in Seasons. Unlike The Sims, Sims are no longer charged when they play on community lots, and they perform more animations on these pinball machines, such as "nudging" the machine, and the ball and flippers themselves are visible.

If The Sims 2: Freetime is installed, playing with the pinball machine raises Enthusiasm for the Games hobby.
