Pinball On Ice

Pinpuck.

With "ice dancing", ballroom dancing is transplanted onto ice. Why not do the same with a much more entertaining pastime, pinball?

A tilted sheet of ice could be placed into a pinball machine with the obstacles and other gadgets frozen right into it. Instead of a ball, the player could use the flippers to knock around a small puck. Of course, due to the difficulty of keeping the ice frozen, the game would probably be best kept outside at a ski resort.

       Oh, sorry... I wasn't thinking of a full-sized game. I was just thinking of a small pinball table with ice inside.   

       *there: I've edited the idea for clarity.

       Canadian Pinball, cool.   

       Unfortunately, a puck can get stuck.

       Pinball using rolled-up Canadians ? Wouldn't that hurt ?

       Can you get a little zamboni to drive around and resurface between games?

       [tatterdemalion]: Uh, yes!

       I love this.   

       What [wagster] said. You should convert ice rinks into giant ice flipper battle fields, think hungry hungry hippos with 1000 pucks. +
