New Pinball Dictionary: Sternament



A tournament that uses only games made by STERN Pinball.

  • So far, this term seems to be reserved for tournaments with only newer, dot matrix display STERN games and not classic STERN games, even though technically it would be correct in that case too.
  • This word has used mainly as a term of denigration or disappointment. However, STERN has released a run of good games lately. I wonder if this word could make a turnaround to be a term of endearment?
  • For example, the 2013 Sternament at Pinball Expo (see picture) was an excellent event run by Trent Augenstein, top STERN distributor.
