Here's a preview of the cover and content listing below:
PM05 cover (small) (resized).jpg
Content listing:
- With ??? glossy full-color pages our biggest issue ever (it’s more like a book...)
- 2 Specials: the most in-depth interview ever with living pinball legend Wayne Neyens and an article by Gordon Hasse on Wayne Neyens career in pinball. Wayne recently celebrated his 100th birthday. He started in the pinball industry in 1937 at Western and started working at Gottlieb in 1939. In 1947 he started designing his first game and since then designed 180 games in total of which 159 made it into production. Each and every one of these, as well as several prototypes, are featured in the magazine. Former colleagues and pinball collectors also comment on working with Wayne, Gottlieb’s transition from EM to solid-state games, what makes Wayne’s games so special and more.
- Scott Danesi discusses how he designed Spooky Pinball’s best-selling hit game Total Nuclear Annihilation. Besides designing the game, Scott also programmed all the rules, light shows and other code, and he produced all of the great music featured in the game.
- Essential Website: Jack Danger discusses streaming pinball on his Dead_Flip channel.
- Private Collection: Randy Peck’s incredible Nu-Pike Arcade.
- Shop: Steve Young (The Pinball Resource) discusses his business and storing the Gottlieb archive.
- (P)in Business: Doug Skor talks about Churchill Cabinets and Chicago Gaming.

- and much more

CONTEST TIME!
Similar to when Pinball Magazine No. 4 came out I'm doing a little contest in which the first correct answer will win a free copy of the magazine:

Guess the total number of pages (including cover) of Pinball Magazine No. 5.

A few rules:
- only one entry per person
- you're not allowed to change your entry
- I'll be running the same contest also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/PinballMagazine/) picking 1 winner per medium (so 1 on Pinside and 1 on Facebook)
- if no-one guesses the correct number of pages, there may not be a winner

Hint: Pinball Magazine No. 5 will be our biggest issue so far!

Amended to 318

#36 3 months ago

OK, I'm going to make an exception to the rules. I will also give an extra hint.
The hint: a magazine always has an even number of pages.
The exception to the rules is that those who named an uneven number earlier in this thread may change their guess once to an even number.

Good luck!

I was just thinking that a magazine always has an even number. Anything below 260 is also useless since issue 3 was 260. Writing pages will be hard.There was a drop from 260 to 244 pages with issue No.4.
So I go for 276 pages (since 272 and 274 are already taken).

#38 3 months ago

292 pages

#39 3 months ago

294 sounds like a good number

Hmmm... this makes me suspect the winning number hasn't been picked yet, otherwise why give a tip.

#46 3 months ago

64 pages?
