I bought my first machine from Scott (flash). He invited me and my brother in to check out his collection and some of his projects. I was blown away, by both his hospitality and what he was doing with his projects. It was also my first times seeing a collection of that size in a residence.

I'm really excited to buy another game from Scott - this time one he designed. I really respect that he's sticking to his vision on this game. I'm confident this will get the most plays out of any of the games I own.

Quoted from rai:

I was referring to TNA half a year ago when it was revealed, it did not have Spooky making it which is what you are referring to and I spelled that out fully.

Scott never had any intention of building it until he was approached by Spooky. There's no point in comparing them at that point, because Scott's game was a single game that he made for his own enjoyment that he chose to bring for the rest of us to see.

I read all of your post. I still downvoted.

#83, just got my invoice!

Can someone tell me the width of the head? I typically slide games through my basement window and onto a cart, but I'm starting to think I'll have to remove the head on this one..

That was a fun day for me. I told Charlie when I got there, you don't get a lot of days like this as an adult, so it's important to enjoy them.

I went into work early to make up for the fact that I would be leaving at 12:30 to pick up my game. It was great to see the Spooky operation in person - everyone there is super friendly and seems genuinely excited about what they're doing.

The best news for me is that I have it setup and it's playing perfectly right before a bday party we're throwing for my twins this weekend. I'm excited to see what the non-pinheads think of TNA compared to the other games.

My daughter was pretty jacked to get the first game. She loves SW, so for her to definitively declare TNA her favorite game "ever" is a pretty big deal!

You can call, or email kt@spookypinball.com. $1,000 deposit due at the time of ordering, and you'll be due the balance once your game is ready (or at least on the line).

There are a few upgrades like the shaker, butter cab, plastic protectors. You'll be able to choose what you want, and it doesn't seem like it's a problem to add or subtract up until your game is on the line.

I'm loving my TnA, it has me stabbing at the start button more than I can remember. The wait is worth it for sure. For those waiting, enjoy your other games for now - they'll be neglected soon enough.

For everyone asking for 2v1, just have the player that's alone drain player 4.

That's the right call. I think it's better to get a chance to play and remove any doubt before a purchase like this.

Quoted from FatPanda:

Nice looking house. Theater is eating too much space though

Most people say that about the pool table.

Quoted from Rascal_H:

Nice place! I could get so much more house if I didn’t live in the northeast.

Thanks! I'll miss it for sure. It's near Madison, but far enough away that it's still a really affordable place to live. We're moving about 30 minutes North due to our jobs and schools, and the cost nearer Madison is pretty insane (not nearly as bad as some parts of the country, though). If life circumstances were different, I'd be staying put.

Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

Very nice house - Milton school district is amazing but you must be right on the border of another district.

We're technically Milton Township, which is Edgerton schools, but our neighbors are enrolled in Milton. The issue for us is that we both work in Madison (I'm downtown, and my wife on the far East side). To drop the kids off in Milton would be 30 minutes out of our way, and then we're about an hour away from them if something were to happen. When they get into activities and such it would complicate things even more.

It was a tough call, but ultimately we needed to decide what was best for our family. My wife alone will be saving 7 full 24hour days in commute a year(!) - and that's just straight commute to work, which doesn't even consider that 30 minutes to drop off kids. I'll be saving about 4 days a year. It's just crazy to think about how much time we spend in the car. We're giving up some things like the private yard and what turned out to be a practically ideal basement, but at least I'm closer to route pinball, and I'm getting back some of my time!
