The original idea for this thread was "Themes to make pinball more appealing to women", but then it occurred to me, we are pretty much already there, and there haven't really been many manly themes in some time.

Everything being politically correct and family friendly as it is, doesn't really fill the need for what manly men like.

I mean things like hunting, fishing, shooting, boating, off roading, fighting, drinking, smoking, and all the things real men do.

So lets come up with some ideas to make this a man's game once again.

What's the point...it's doomed.
From CNN "Fewer teens having sex, using drugs"

Probably a hard sell, but a Farming theme. Hard, laborious , year round work.

For some reason I have lost the ability to link games.

But if anybody else can, feel free to link any and all past games with manly themes such as Big Buck Hunter, Nascar, BMX, Frontiersman, Blackwater 100, Sportsman, etc, and those might inspire us with some new manly themes.

How about an XXX pin??? The adult sex version, not the bald guy in a race car version

Pretty macho set of movies with Vin Diesel for sure, unless you are talking the other kind of xxx, which this is probably not the place for.

I took the liberty to add Big Juicy Melons!

I'd take something along the lines of Road Show only a little more realistic -- more focus on the construction equipment rather than two large heads on the playfield. A couple excavators filling up dump trucks, a dozer leveling some ground, wheel loaders scooping up material. Focus on the Big Boy Toys playing in the dirt.

Unfortunately that sounds a lot like that Gold Rush show that I stopped watching like seven seasons ago because of all the lame drama that would shut production down. The pump ran out of gas, the nut came loose on the shaker, a big rock fell on the conveyor. . . TV loves to make something out of nothing.

I guess Bally Night Rider no longer applies since there are many Women in the trucking industry now. At least I think they are women?

More sweaty buff guys.

#20 1 year ago

Coils rigged to the flipper buttons and lockdown bar that produce an electrical shock when objectives are not met. Extra large shaker motor that "nudges back".

Full-contact pinball.

I'm thinking it certainly wasn't the theme that made this one of the less desirable games.

I’d say make a Braveheart pin but that’s really a tender love story.

A scary pinball machine, like Tales from the Crypt. A little more gore and scary characteristics though

They should have made a Hellraiser pin! Solving puzzle boxes and defeating Cenobites.

#32 1 year ago

Instead of another totally gay commercial hair-metal pin, it's time for something with a knife in it, like Turbonegro

#33 1 year ago

How about a BBQ/grilling theme?

Smokers, Wood Fired, Flat-top, Charcoal vs. Propane, Sauces, all sorts of details to fit in. . . you could have a carnivore version and a vegetarian/vegan option/version for diversity.

For some reason the carnivore version seems slightly less feminine.

Caterpillar puts their name on a lot of merchandise. . . might not be to difficult too add a pinball to the lineup.

I don't know if it's less feminine, or less nerdy that's really the issue.

All the same to me. We don't want any grey areas here.
