I love playing a game of air hockey whenever I’m in an arcade. It brings me back to my childhood and the time spent trying, unsuccessfully, to beat my father at the game. I was never quite good enough to beat him but I enjoyed the competitive nature of it and sometimes, if I was really lucky, I’d be able to hit the puck just right to make it sail off of the table and into my brother’s head.
I had no idea just how competitive the sport of air hockey really is. People take this shit SERIOUSLY.
In Way of the Puck, a caricaturist, a clinical psychologist, a Buddhist wanderer, and an importer of wind-up musical jewelry boxes battle each other for air hockey world domination, and battle the world to save their beloved sport from extinction.
