Default Added three Jeff Block tables

Author Jeff Block has given us to host some of his tables. I have just added Block's Basketball to the Sports Theme section, and AntiGrav Pinball to the Arcade and Video setion. While both are flippered, they are both excellent, challenging games.

Block's Basketball allows you to choose the lenght of quarters as well as solo play or your computer as an opponent. You can get them in the above mentioned sections or by doing a search on the name Jeff Block.

I've added another table by Jeff Block to our Arcade and Video section. This one is Vertigo, and like his Ati-Grav table has zero gravity. I think it's the best of the three I've added.

So I have a question. Do you feel that we should host more original flippered tables that have unique features and playability? If we were to do so, we'd only accept tables that are out of the ordinary. We have always done so, hosting several flippered masterpieces by Bob, but maybe we should start to encourage more creativity from all our authors. Your opinions and comments would be appreciated. Note that if we did solicite such tables, they would need to fit our guidelines in order to be accepted, and average, normal flippered originals would still not be hosted here, since they are already available at VP Originals.

It sounds fair and reasonable to me.
It couldn't harm having some of the more 'original' originals hosted here as well as VPO - if for no other reason than two is better than one for archival purposes.
