Looking for an almost-pachinko game.

Looking for an almost-pachinko game.I am trying to remember the name of a pachinko-like game where steel balls bounce down through the mechanism, and are clearly collected in slots at the bottom for scoring.

A desire to join...

I just recently turned 25 and have a new desire to join some type of organization. I was never part of a fraternity or any organized social "club". I feel like I missed out. I'm looking for something that is oriented towards personal growth of some type (non-religious), could possibly be service oriented, and has some kind of traditions or rituals. Having to be inducted is a plus, but not necessary. It could be for men or men and women. I would prefer that people would be people near my age as well as older. I know it's a little vague, but I want to leave my options open. What types of groups are out there?
