    Hello and good morning Pinsiders!

    Charlie from Spooky Pinball LLC here, hoping we can help spread the word on an INCREDIBLE pair of games going up for auction on Friday Oct. 18th at the Pinball Life Open House!!! Proceeds from this event will be going to JDRF, in the name of "Team G" (Bryan Kelly's grandson, photos on banner art). JDRF is a fantastic group and one we've all been proud to help support over the years. See the link below...

    Spooky is prepping THE LAST OF THE ORIGINAL RUN Total Nuclear Annihilation games for this auction! The game will have special #550 hinges (thanks Dino at Pinball Metal!) and a few other tricks and treats. Will be new in box, and a very special 1 of a kind game that we hope makes the lucky winner proud to own for years to come!

    ALSO... Thanks to Doug, Ryan, and all our fine friends at Chicago Gaming Company... we have ANOTHER SPECIAL GAME GOING UP FOR AUCTION!!! Doug (owner of CGC) had set aside Medieval Madness LE #1 of 1000 for himself. When he heard about the cause and auction, Doug decided to give up his brand new prized game, add some special trinkets to it, and ADD IT TO THIS AUCTION!!!

    So the details are Friday October 18th, at 3:00 p.m. the auctions will begin. All proceeds go to JDRF, and if you win, you CAN TAKE THEM HOME THAT DAY! If you need a game shipped, Spooky Pinball LLC will be happy to assist with that as well.

    YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO BID! If you can't be there, find a friend who can be... or reach out to Bryan Kelly and he may be able to help with this as well.

    Games will be auctioned off individually to the highest bidder.

    Both games are still being finished, so we'll post photos as soon as possible, but photos will be last minute I'm sure because pinball is hard.

    THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! Best of luck, and hope to see you at the Pinball Life Open House!!!

    Thanks everyone... should have mentioned zero reserve too!

    Somebody (or a couple somebodys) are going to leave Pinball Life really happy on the 18th!

    Quoted from Yelobird:

    why not start the bidding now to more then just visitors?

    Has been a point of much debate... but the decision to go "in person" was a multiple humans involved one.

    Plus there might be something super cool and special that will only work to full effect in person.

    Bryan will be the path to those who can't make it... so glad there is at least that great option! He's a trustable guy, I swear.

    Quoted from Pinzap:

    Thanks to those offering to assist... MUCH appreciation!

    The last few years at this event Terry and Margaret set out a "tip jar" in the Spooky Pinball booth for those who'd care to use it to add to the JDRF funds for the day.

    I don't want to say who, but a good pinball friend just started off that tip jar with a $1,000 donation... because he could, and wanted to.

    Good people... lots of them out there. Generosity of them never fails to leave me feeling pretty damn great and wanting to do more ourselves.

    Thank you everyone.

    Thanks to everyone who is jumping on this to donate, give kind words, and just for being awesome!

    I was just informed Robert from Hooked On Pinball is donating a TnA side rail lighting kit, ghost hinge lighting kit (and Lemmy Ghost will be unique on this #550 game, thanks to Dino at Pinball Metal!), and Robert is also tossing in his awesome pop bumper mod!!!

    We'll install all this stuff on the game if time allows before the auction, or it will just be included with the game (game will be in the box) for the new owner to use.

    THANK YOU ROBERT!!! Making a great game even better.

    Well.... here it is. Came out absolutely beautiful!!! Remember, bidding on this game starts at $5,500 ($500 below retail!) and all profits go to JDRF.

    Big thanks to Terry, Margaret, and Scott at Pinball Life for donating the nuclear green plastics and hosting the auction... Robert at Hooked on Pinball for the light up side rail & Lemmy ghost hinges and pop bumper mod. Also thanks to Dino at Pinball Metal for cutting the 1 of a kind Lemmy's, and Tom for donating the shooter lane tracking mod. Spooky Pinball jazzed it up with the speaker mod kit as well.

    Bunch of good people coming together to make a great game even better... and wait until you see what Chicago Gaming has going for Medieval Madness LE #1!

    Thanks everyone, and can't wait to load this up and let you see it at Pinball Life!

    Just a note from team Spooky saying major thank you's to EVERYONE that contributed, bid, and had a great time at what has become quite the event.

    I need to get the video up to show the balloon drop! Holy wow was that impressive... like a sea of people being drowned in a waterfall of color and chaos! Lol.

    Great GREAT DAY!!! Can't wait to do it all again.
