Wow… what a December, and what a way to wrap up 2018! You’ll hear about our 1st ever trip to the 1st ever “Pincinnati” pinball show in Cincinnati, Ohio, where we got to hang out with friends, family, and fellow pinball geeks of all ages. You’ll even get to hear from Zach and Greg from Straight Down the Middle, and try to figure out which one of them is the nice one! That’s just a warm up, and Charlie, Bug, and KT also head to the land of all things giant kaiju monster goodness, TOKYO!!! Charlie and Bug decided to do a spur of the moment podcast in a laundromat in Japan, which HAS to be a first. From there, we take you to a surprise landing on an island for a truly wonderful work experience, then head home to recover. Terry at Pinball Life is giving away an AWESOME hand crafted Total Nuclear Annihilation Pingulp LE… yes, the LE MODEL! Top off this much goodness with Danni giving her strategy on Elvira and the Party Monsters, and of course our E.M. Dungeon master, and you’ve got a great way to start off 2019!

While it may be November 1st, it’s still Halloween here at Spooky Pinball every day! Bug & Charlie go over a quick list of their favorite spooky theme games… while we hear from Ryan (aka the Night Mutilator) about the 6th annual “Hauntcade” Horrorhouse Fest, held this year at the Hyperspace Arcade. Danni is back to tell you how to defeat the invincible Iron Man game, as of course the E.M. Dungeon will show you the path of vintage games is a manageable one. Toss in a super cool Alice Cooper custom PinGulp from the fine folks at Pinball Life, and it’s all treats with only a few tricks. Have fun ghosts & goblins!

Halloween approaches, and we take on a couple topics with the scariest thing ever…. OPINIONS! Bug and Charlie talk about their pinball dream team, and keep things to the happy side by talking games that need a second look to find the fun factor. We’ll also have another edition of Dining With Spooky at Lawrence’s Pub and Eatery with some crazy MN friends. Tack on Danni’s strategy of 2 classic games (Mata Hari and Strikes & Spares)…. James back in the E.M. Dungeon, and a super needed and cool prize from Pinball Life on a brand new product, The Bally / Stern Rectifier Board. You know yours is crispy and you need a new one, so take a shot and maybe you’ll get a free one just for listening! Enjoy, have fun, be nice, and absorb all the Spooky scary October goodness that is the Spooky Pinball Podcast.

Spooky Pinball crossed into the triple digit show range last month, and we’re not stopping there. This month we talk to Jack Danger, Bowen Kerins, and Bunyip van Es while we flip out on Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle in the shop. You’ll also get Charlie & Bug’s take on the recent Godzilla “drama” (we hate drama), and you’ll try out a new segment on “Dining With Spooky” where we once again visit Lawrence’s Pub and Eatery with our guest, Al Warner. You’ll have a chance to win a PinWrench Ultimate leg and backbox bolt wrench from Pinball Life, and of course you’ll hear from Dave & Danni on one of our favorite games, and James Willing in the E.M. Dungeon. You’ll get all this and more just for tuning your non existing radio dial to the Spooky Pinball Podcast!

Thanks to everyone at the Golden State Pinball Festival for the hospitality and hosting us at what is an incredible show.

You’ll get interviews from the show, road reports from the family, a visit from E.M Dungeon dweller James, and Danni will tell you all about how to navigate the classic horror game Tales From the Crypt!
