AT THE ARCADE

2: Fiorello La Guardia campaigned to ban pinball in this city; the ban was lifted when Roger Sharpe demonstrated in a courtroom that pinball was a game of skill.

4: This game invented in 1908 has a ramp with an incline at the end to launch the rolled balls into scoring holes.

6: In a Simpsons parody of this 1995 Kevin Costner film's budget problems, Milhouse complains about having to insert 40 quarters to continue playing the arcade adaptation.

8: Steve Wiebe jumped to first in April 2018 when Twin Galaxies struck Billy Mitchell's record score of 1,047,200 on this arcade game.

10: In the English version of Pac-Man, this is the only letter that the four ghost names all have in common.

GOVERNORS

3: This Alabama governor who championed segregation was the last third-party Presidential candidate to win a state.

6: This governor, in office since 2011, also held the post from 1975 to 1983; his father, Pat, was also a governor.

9: As governor of this state, John Peter Altgeld pardoned three men convicted in the Haymarket riots; he also opposed federal intervention in the Pullman strikes.

12: This was the only sitting governor to win a state in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.

15: John Farmer, Jr. served as Acting Governor of this state for 90 minutes between Senate sessions; the elected governor, Christine Todd Whitman, had left for the EPA.
