Like my other thread (Stern's History) I like capturing the history of games produced by a company as sometimes the data is interesting to compare with each other or other games by other manufacturers and helpful in determining info down the track for whatever reason as later on will be harder to find in one location.

The stern one can be found here:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sterns-game-release-history

I am sure some of this data maybe incorrect, so please post any info that needs correcting. I have included all games produced and not just their own production games but contracted games as well and where they fit into the scheme of production based on when they were released. I think Spooky have done an incredible job and I look forward to seeing what they make in the future. The prices are what I could find as their release price but maybe incorrect on 1-2 of them. And if anyone knows of how many games went overseas that would be cool data as well and what revision boards for the different games - all cool data.

Great thread, thanks!

Was AMH really $6,250? I thought it was $6,000 and then had the plastic protectors and LED upgrades available for an additional charge, but it's been a few years so I don't remember for sure.

#4 1 year ago

Price for amh and RZ both 6k I believe

Quoted from FalconPunch:

Oh yeah didn't notice the RZ price as well. Standard was $6k and LE was $6.5k. Those I remember for sure.

#6 1 year ago

I think AMH and RZ were both $5,995, and I believe AMH came out in April/May of 2014.
Can't wait to see ACNC.

#7 1 year ago

thanks guys, adjusted those prices now before the post is locked

Interesting game summary. Don’t really know much about spooky pinball, what’s the company history?
When was it started?
Who started it?
How have their games been received?

The "Things that go bump in the night" dvd would be a good one to watch to answer some of those questions.

Fact Capture - Mid Feb 2018 - Ben Heck has left Spooky to pursue other ventures and also because the license for his game could not be purchased for what Spooky wanted, so his project was shelved. Ben gave programming support to Alice Coopers Nightmare Castle due for release mid March 2018.

I cant confirm it....but heard only 120 Jetsons were made. Thanks for posting.

#12 1 year ago

prices of the recent ACNC, which doesn't seem to capture the purchase cost of the knocker and shaker kits

Officially, (from Spooky), Alice Cooper is their 4th official game.

The others are considered contract games and not official.

AMH
RZ
TnA
ACNC

So maybe to avoid confusion, Dominos and Jetsons should be labeled as “contract games”

I’d say TNA is an outlier since it was already designed prior to signing on. Major kudos to Spooky for manufacturing though! Hopefully, Scott Danesi stays with them for a future design! Even though the numbers are small, they get major street cred for games released with 1.0 code, excellent quality assurance, and customer service! What else do you want? They learned from the Rz disappointment. ACNC is very promising! With Bowen Kerins leading the rules and programming department, so much potential!

I have defined if they are spooky or contract games and believe TNA is a complete machine (externally of Spooky), non spooky theme produced by spooky so fits more the contract build I thought.

Charlie should team up with Brian Holderman and Scott to make a Silver Bullet game (different design, same style art). Updated with p-roc.

Just curious, what was the Australian $ price at the time for a NIB AMH?

Quoted from ausretrogamer:

think it was $10.5k imported + freight from Newcastle / Sydney, I believe

*Contract game* implies that Scott bought all the TNA machines from Spooky and then resold them. This did not happen. Scott designed the game and then Spooky purchased the rights to produce it.

TNA is closer to a licensed game (Scott's license) than anything else.

That cab/backglass mockup of KK is just killer. It leaves me wanting more.

I thought heard a interview with Scott it was a non defined $ amount per game sold, hence my classification of Contract Game, but your interpretation of Contract makes sense.

I will change it to Scott Danesi Licensed Game
