    Join April Fools Jonathan Joosten from PinballMagazine and Martin Ayub from Pinball News as they bring you up-to-date with all the key events from the world of pinball throughout March.

    There’s almost a sense of déjà vu as Jersey Jack Pinball's Guns N' Roses picks up a bunch of awards, Spooky Pinball gets bigger premises and production of deeproot Pinball's Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland is pushed further back.

    But there are plenty of new products and game reveals, upcoming game information, updated game code, current and upcoming pinball events and much, much more in the latest edition of their long-running PINcast. Plus a special guest appearance by ‘Gary’ - or is it?

    So Joe Balcer has landed at Homepin.

    Plot twist.

    Quoted from PinMonk:

    So Joe Balcer has landed at Homepin.
    Plot twist.

    Yeah, but how about the upcoming machine they are working on, any clues?

    #55 1 year ago
    Quoted from pins4u:

    Yeah, but how about the upcoming machine they are working on, any clues?

    I didn't listen to the whole thing because there was a lot of rambling about Homepin minutae I didn't care about.

    1. The guilao zombie ghost pin they were making next is, ironically, dead. They made one unit and it's in their Taiwan showroom. But the excuse for why they're not selling it is it uses mainland simplified Chinese and that would be frowned upon in Taiwan. (I was like - so CHANGE it, you made ONE, it's not like you have a warehouse of cabinets and playfields).

    2. They made a few really basic pins with Porsche themes for Porsche trade shows on a contract basis.

    3. The new pin with Balcer on board is a licensed property, but he didn't really give anything up about it. Joe has a few good pins, but a lot of duds, so it's anyone's guess if he's straightened out enough to deliver a good pin design once more. Allegedly.

    Balcer landing at Homepin is really the most surprising takeaway, IMO.

    It's time for another packed PINcast from Jonathan Joosten of Pinball Magazine and Martin Ayub of Pinball News.

    This time they look back at all the key events in pinball from July and the start of August along with, not one... not two... but three special pinball legend guests.

    Jersey Jack himself tells us about how he brought Steve Ritchie to the company he founded and discusses many other recent events at the business. Roger Sharpe reveals details of the upcoming movie about his life in pinball and that historic moment in 1976 where he helped ensure the game's survival. The third legend has designed more than 180 pinballs and as he celebrates his birthday, Wayne Neyens still has dreams about the game at the ripe old age of 103.

    Plus, there are full details of Spooky Pinball's launch of their latest titles, the auction of the Museum of Pinball's huge collection, the most recent update from Deeproot Pinball, pinball's appearance on TV, more pinball collectables you can purchase, teases of more upcoming titles, how the Magic Girl game has finally been finished, a scam warning, code updates and much, much more.

    Then there's a call with Gary to get all the latest news... or is there?
