I'm sure everyone at Spooky is in full steam ahead mode right now which would explain some of the silence. All these expos and shows are great to get the name out and more sales, but adds problems of production and availability of parts. Based off the last podcast they sold at least another 15 TNA's at the last show that they have to fit into the schedule. Based off their documentary, they also can't just hire an extra shift to crank out more games as they can't lay off employees. Sounds like a lot of overtime is coming for Team Spooky. I just hope Spooky, as well as their vendors, can keep up with the timeframe they've put out.

Quoted from benheck:

Charlie's taking his foot off the hype gas so there's still a few units left for MGC.

Oh.

#2353 1 year ago

Well I just dropped a deposit on an ACNC so I hope so.

#2354 1 year ago

If you haven’t done so listen to the latest episode of the Spooky Pinball Podcast, lots of good post-TPF announcement discussion there.

Sounds like the game will be way more functional at MGC next weekend as they rapidly port more of the code over to the PROC system.

#2355 1 year ago

So I just purchased this . . . have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but for some reason I thought I needed it.

Nevermind. Nothing to see here.

ACNC pinball machines or severed Alice Cooper guillotine heads?

So no video before MGC?

I’ll be curious how far the software advanced. Maybe fawzma got a few more modes coded. 5 more days until mgc!

more modes
more graphics
more fixes

Just a passing thought and we have a long ways to go before delivery.

One of the many reasons I'm buying this game is based on theme but not necessarily on Alice Cooper. I have always enjoyed AC's music along with his stage persona. But I'm attracted to the monster, mystery castle, dark theme more than anything else. The fact it happens to have Alice Cooper's music in it is almost incidental.

(Edit: Glad to see people agree.)

Thumbs up or down are welcome but I'll put my flame suit on just in case.

Agree completely and I’m not a fan of Alice. Nothing against his music honestly just never been into it. But the presentation of this game and approach is way more open and universal. The castle monster hunt theme is great.

Right on Kim. 100% theme first for me too. This game is gonna be really cool.

Here will be my man cave background for ACNC.

Added 20 months ago: I originally built this for a Halloween party. It's made from 2" pink board insulation.The mortar joints are sand blasted. PVC pipe for bars and reinforced with strips of Luan. It looks better in real life.

#2366 1 year ago

Hopefully before Christmas “18” I am sure this pin will not be available soon.

100% in the same page. Wife is a Cooper fan. I enjoy his music but have not sought it out. The theme, mood, colors and comic book style LCD art is major draw for me. Will be a bonus to have the AC tunes in there as well.

Really interesting in that I’m not usually a big horror theme guy. Only enjoy it when it gets campy ... like Abbott and Costello, Young Frankenstein etc.

Another reason to buy ACNC is that I really want to support the underdogs/new guys (just took delivery of Houdini)

Can’t wait for more gameplay during MGC!

#2368 1 year ago

I like the early 70's stuff with his "band" but yeah I'm with the rest of you -- enjoy Alice but in this for the theme and layout.

I've got a gut feeling about this one, dudes it's gonna rock!

Go Spooky! I have TNA 188 coming soonish...now this!

#2369 1 year ago

Last night at Wrestlemania 34, Alice Cooper's guitar player, Nita Strauss, played one of the performers intros live and was freaking awesome! 31 years prior, Alice Cooper helped out Jake the Snake Roberts in ring at Wrestlemania 3.

It was awesome live! I had no idea it was her until after the show.

I hope you're right! I've heard estimates out to 1 1/2 years. I have no idea if this is true though.

Charlie previously said their goal is 18 months from beginning of production (in June) to end. So yes, 1.5 years, probably best case scenario.

#2373 1 year ago

Got my 1k in this week and had a nice talk with KT. Already planning my trip to Benton!

Quoted from StylesBitchly:

This.... is damn AWESOME!!! Yeah, we might be related?! Apparently we have the same decorating style.

Here's me being 100% honest, and I really hope that stays a habit. We're cranking as hard as possible while TnA continues to sell VERY well to get as many out as possible. With only 500 Alice Cooper games to go around, the emphasis to push sales becomes less every day. We WANT it to make it to a couple more shows to get played, so it gets to people who are genuinely going to enjoy the game and what we've done with it. Pushing to start June production as we stated, and 18 months from start to finish.

TnA is our biggest selling game to date, and Alice Cooper holds the single day sales record here BY A LONG SHOT! Enough said for now...

Bowen and Fawzma will be at MGC this weekend going over code / rules even more... and yep, code is still behind due to the board switch but has MUCH more content than it did at TPF.

Scott keeps making TnA more awesome, and ... ?! How does he do that????!!!! Great days at Spooky.

See you all at MGC!!! Really looking forward to the show. We'll have 2 Alice Cooper games and 3 TnA's in our booth (counting Scott's whitewood game).

Charlie:

Thanks for the update Charlie! MGC is a little too far from me, but will Spooky be attending the Southern-Fried Game Show in Atlanta? I'm already a buyer, but want to get my hands on it first hand. Also, any word on a proper ACNC stream date?

Thank you so much for your commitment, support, and transparency to the pinball community!

MGC Attendees - Now who is going to be our special reporter and get us some good pics/vids from the show?

#2376 1 year ago

any chance they will be on 2 or 3 ball?

At least 2... 3 if the lines aren't crazy.

Will Spooky be at this years NW Pinball show?

I'm in on Alice Cooper, but would love a chance to play Total Nuclear Annihilation.

You should have seen my Halloween party. It was legendary! This was only one prop I built. There were many others.

#2382 1 year ago

Spooky will be represented by two distributors at the NW show, but since it is the same weekend as Denver and Atlanta, the spooky team can only be in one place at one time.

Yes

#2385 1 year ago

Charlie, Will you give us a heads up when there are 50-75 games left? It would be tragic in my eyes, if people have to order this game before they have a chance to play it. Heck, it looks like Alice Cooper will sell out before a real game leaves the assembly line. Any chance there will be a game at Pintastic New England? Congrats on the success!

If I got in early enough and they start in June I suppose there’s a chance we could have ours in the tournament. Wishful thinking.

That's what I did.
You gotta pay to play.

I can't believe the awesome collection of pins you guys in this thread have! WOW!!

#2388 1 year ago

Placed my order yesterday and my TNA goes on the line next week! If you’re on the fence it’s now or used... My prediction is it’s gonna sell out this weekend.

#2389 1 year ago

Can someone try to get some good pics of the blue powder coat this weekend? Im still trying to decide if i want the upgrade or the vein grey

#2390 1 year ago

which might get you playing before 2020.

do people really buy like that just out of FOMO?

I do it for my location players.

#2392 1 year ago

I'm not the FOMO type, but
I have to admit, this is my first NIB and I know it's kind of crazy to buy before even trying it, but I really do think it will be a great pin. I knew it's now or never so I pulled the trigger. Tell me I'm not crazy.

#2393 1 year ago

Hey charlie,
Any plans for protectors (clear or otherwise) around the flipper button areas to protect the cabinet art?

#2394 1 year ago

I'm not so much addressing those who bought it, which if you got a location totally make sense to try to get it ASAP; and if you have faith in the game and really want it, well of course you gotta have it!

What caught my attention is reading so much "you gotta get in now! must be sold out by now! last chance!" ... come on, give me a break, is not even like "I'm happy I got it and might have it before xmas" but a bunch of nonsense.

but what do I know...

can't wait for MGC so this thread is updated with stuff about the actual game instead of google images and cringy marketing.

#2395 1 year ago
Quoted from fantarama:

That’s definitely not why I’m buying it. The entire package is very appealing! Awesome art, unique layout with innovative features and abundance of shots. Bowen consulting with rules. Combined with a company I trust and and am rooting for. I was simply stating that if people are trying to decide, as several have stated here, that time is running out. I wouldn’t have stated that without information.
