    I posted a joke in the deeproot thread concerning their Quad building technigue, aka No Assembly Line, and it made me actually start thinking this would be a good title for a pin... Stapler ball lock, three amigos on the pop bumpers and a copier/fax machine in the middle... mini game mode could be Don’t jump to a conclusion... all kinds of ideas start boiling up... Collect Flair mode... shoot shots to get cool “Flair” and extra balls... Could have Inatek and Chochtkies buildings... Inatak lights up in yellow and orange from internal lights to simulate burning down. Shoot the restaurant and have interactions with Waitress etc... TPS report mode where your being baraged by every guy about your TPS report, shooting a shot to shut each one up... “Yeah, I’ll get right on those...” I mean this thing writes itself.

    Anyone think so too?

    Needs a big ass red stapler on the playfield

    Worst theme idea I've heard since The Bible.

    And keep in mind like 20 new themes are suggested daily.

    "Stapler Scoop"

    "Shooting lit shots collects flair!"

    "Two Bobs multi ball"

    "Avoid hitting standups to help Peter 'miss' work"

    Lundbergh "Diner" Mug on playfield

    Bash the printer to watch "Kung Fu"

    Finish all modes to "Jump to Conclusions"

    Big Red Stapler toy mech...

    Big Red stapler over right orbit... left ramp is a shot up and around with a diverter to right inlane or stapler to lock three balls... That’s My Stapler multiball and the stapler comes down Cachunk! Ball 1 Cachunk! Ball 2 Cachunk! Ball 3... and you get a super jackpot that scales if you can keep locking all three balls back in the stapler... cash in with an action button, or risk loosing the flow and loosing them all, risk reward...

    The mech designs itself... it would act just like a stapler, it could be designed exactly like one too.

    Love the film but its not pinball material.

    Quoted from Hazoff:

    pinball material.

    I understand your preference. But there are a lot of cube dwellers who play pinball, I know because my league is full of them. This is spot on marketing for people who have lived the life and now make bank enough, me included.

    Which is? just curious

    #15 1 year ago

    Well, you know I'm a fan of this idea

    The LE could even have 37 pieces of flair!

    #16 1 year ago

    If I had a million dollars, I think I'd want a pinball with 2 playfields at the same time.

    That Office Space was a good film, but not “pinball material” to you... you stated it pretty clearly. I understand your preference in that regard, no other.

    If it does get made this might make a good mode. The Copier

    2 ball multiball .. “Doin’ 2 chicks at the same time...”

    #22 1 year ago

    In a bizarro world where Dutch Pinball was a success, this would’ve been a perfect second pin for them.

    or this..

    Too many great (and short) callouts to not work. Plenty of plot paths to use as modes as well. I’d enjoy playing a game like that.

    #26 1 year ago

    Yes, like I said when I created the thread, this pin would design itself. The callouts, the one liners, the ideas for interaction with the theme and the player... two chicks at once two ball multiball is exactly what I am talking about... the source material is ripe for pinball plucking. I just keep thinking of the outcome of the final wizard mode being similar to RTU, except it would be TLS, That’s The Last Straw... every jackpot shows Milton throw another molotav cocktail... until the entire Inatek building is a burning flames lightshow... the flashers doing the red and blue emergency vehicle dance all over the playfield... then the flippers shut off... the balls drain... You burned it to the Ground!!! It takes your picture and puts your face on a person sipping a Mai Tai in their beach chair... and have milton doing a voice over... “He brought me a Margarita instead of a Mia Tai, and I said no salt on the rim... I could write the tourism board and have this place condemned...”

    If I was a designer at DR (or Stern, or API, or JJP,) or any new company that was looking for a licensed theme to be their first pin title, this would be a no-brainer in my book. I bet the “37 pieces of Flair waiter” actor guy is available for callouts, he just lost his “likesness rights” lawsuit.

    Anyone know Mike Judge personally?
