    Strange. I don't recall having a boss recently. I had one in 1972-73 for one year. Swore I'd never do that again.

    I really don’t mind the idea of an Oktoberfest theme. There is a ton you could do with a broad theme like that. I also like the Greek mythology theme idea that many have suggested.

    But what I’d really like is a cryptids themed pin, Sasquatch, Mothman, Yeti, Chupacabra, Loch Ness Monster, Slender Man, dogmen, etc. Plenty of ways you could go with that. Could make it dark and scary or lighthearted and humorous. Animations and toy possibilities would be endless.

    Me too. The game already exists: Wrath of Olympus. But the Riot team does not manage to build it for now.

    Played it at Allentown Pinfest several years ago. Don’t remember much about it, but I do recall liking it. But that wouldn’t stop American Pinball from using the same Greek mythology theme.

    Well it was about finding a manufacturer to build this one. Some people were talking about Spooky or AP. I don’t know who were able to build it and put it in there production planning. Anyway no update since a while.
    Effectively nothing prevents AP to build a game based on the Greek mythology but I think it is very unlikely.

    Would any of these licences work?

    Original Star Trek series? Still time to get custom Shatner call outs.

    As an American who went to Oktoberfest Munich in 2016, I would LOVE an Oktoberfest pinball. I’m trying to get back to Munich for Oktoberfest this September, I loved it so much. I hope it is a real pin and coming soon!

    With all the beer drinker pinheads, do you like beer thread on Pinside, and barcades ?

    I do not know. I've been thinking about it all weekend and just think it's a huge risk. It would all depend on several things, but I think the risk is not worth it.

    Since when did pinball go anti-beer and boobs?

    #181 2 years ago

    Still think a Serengeti theme could also be fun. Big 5 as toys. Going on safari. Wild rivers, animals, Shaka Zulu, and all the fantastic wildlife sounds, etc.

    I'll stick with unlicensed themes by suggesting ... Hairy Trotter. It's a coming of age story about a young wizard (Hairy) who goes off to boarding school (Cog Warts) and returns home as the very badass ... Warlock (with a W scar on his forehead).

    We need a Far Side type pin. Dinosaurs running over cavemen type humor. Scrape the neanderthal off your foot mode.

    It seems pretty obvious that Oktoberfest is the next game from the way Rosh is trying so hard to defend the theme. Sorry, but what he calls a sophomoric theme is the only way to go. Beerfest is a fun movie with built in modes (the games that make up beerfest) and assets from the movie as well. There are a bunch of funny clips from the movie to use. Noone wants a generic Oktoberfest pin.

    You would think. But then again, I thought the same thing when a certain cell phone pin was leaked by a disgruntled ex JJP employee. There is no way they are making a cell phone game, and yet here we are.

    I liked Dialed in from the first time I played it at expo. I thought it was a cool layout. But frankly, as time goes by, I like it less and less because of the theme and ho hum call outs,....and of course the mom jeans hero. Oktoberfest would have a similar steep hill to climb.
