Hi! We are now planning on digital book format, and also a possible audio book. We were also asked about a ten book package too. We expect Volume One to be ready for shipping mid August...we have a deadline for Volume 2 for the Pinball Expo in Chicago where I will be giving a seminar also. Here is the official press release sent to local media! Thanks for all the interest folks! We think each volume will also evolve as we add other things to the format.
RELEASE OF PINBALL ADVENTURES: VO L I, FIRST BOOK BY TODD TUCKEY, OWNER OF TNT AMUSEMENTS
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (June 18th, 2018) – Todd Tuckey, owner of TNT Amusements Inc. , has
signed a deal to write a ten volume set of books, detailing the experiences he has had over the years in
finding, restoring and selling pinball machines. Each book will feature 30 different machines while also
containing pictures and details about each individual pinball.
Seeing a demand in the thousands of emails and calls he receives monthly, Todd has decided to share his
vast, 40-year knowledge of the pinball industry with the world, not only in his 23,000+ subscribers on his
YouTube channel , but with pinball lovers all over the world! In book form, he can showcase both popular
and more obscure pinball machines that many will remember fondly. Keep in mind that Todd pioneered
home sales of these arcade machines in the United States as a full-time business with TNT Amusements
Inc. back in the early 80’s when other companies only sold games during the holiday season. To promote
his business, he produced the first half hour infomercial in the world on this unique industry in 1993
which aired on local channels until 2013.
Pre-order for the first volume of “Pinball Adventures” can be found here:
Each volume will focus on specific genres of pinball machines — ranging from The Movies, Science
Fiction, Horror, etc., and will detail select machines and how they play. The first volume will be a mix of
everything! Most importantly, he will share secrets he has learned over the years about each model to
help collectors fix their own machines.
These stories will take inspiration from the TNT Amusements YouTube channel that contains over 1,400+
videos that feature the restoration process and all about the different arcade machines he sells. However,
he covers other topics not arcade related, including trips to historic places and unusual places and also
antique Americana, like specialty player pianos from the teens and costly 30’s radios. With over 23,000+
subscribers, his popular videos have been viewed for over 40,000 million minutes.
Other topics covered will be zany experiences with his customers, discussing his advertising strategies
with his now infamous late night infomercials, hosting over 26,000+ unique arcade parties in his
showrooms, buying and selling 30,000+ machines all over the world, and discussion about different
machines & how they are reconditioned.
