That is borderline sadistic!!!

Any consensus on which colour sac rack looks better on the machine? Need to order one but can’t decide which.

I have both. Hot punk looks best but you shoud have them on multiple games.

#32 here. Just got word they are play testing now.

#606 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

It's a "sac rack," which is used for $1 games. Each person put one Golden Sac (Sacagawea dollar) in the slot. It is just to make it easier than having paper money on the glass. Also helps when there might have been too much alcohol involved and someone puts a $10 (or $100) down instead of a $1.

And most importantly, it’s just cool.

My buddies & I have added a little variety to Sac Rack wagering. Some might enjoy...

Instead of using Sac dollars we use presidential $1 coins, because dead presidents are way cooler! The President coins are always stored inside the coinbox & never leave the house. There are only 39 President coins, so we use one Sacagawea as the 40th coin.

Everybody buys in for $10 in singles. The coins are laid out on the bar & everyone picks their favorite gold presidents. There's always a fight over Martin Van Buren (killer sideburns). We also have an additional $10 per person side bet (more on that later). All the cash goes in the coinbox.

Then we play 4-player games, everyone betting dollar per game using the sac rack, highest score takes the 4 coins. After 10 rounds, everyone pulls out their wad of presidents, and the $40 in singles get paid out to each player based on number of coins.

As for the $40 side bet, we use a random number generator app to pick a random number from 1-40. Whomever is holding the presidential coin that matches the number wins the cash (ex. Random Number 16 = Abraham Lincoln). And it's a great way to learn about presidents! Pinball, beers & US History! What's not to love here?!?!? Plus if you got your ass handed to you all night, you still have a shot to win some money.

The only thing we'd love to have is a POTUS PERCH from Pinball life, instead of a Sac Rack, loaded with stars, some stripes, bald eagles, liberty bells, and freedom. A fan can only dream right????

Anyone know how high the lock down bar of TNA is. Looks shorter in all photos. But by how much?

Quoted from epthegeek:

Sacs and their rack aren't for buying in. They're for betting. Payrange allow for that? Everybody digitally transfer a dollar to some holding pen, then to the winner? No? Awww.

Ahhhhhhh. I’m new to this line of gambling. Tell me more .

Quoted from Rascal_H:

thenotrashcougar and mandraws should put out a comic to tell the story of TNA (so what if Dialed In did it first )
Does the hero even have a name?

I think Bug should do another radio serial!

Quoted from StylesBitchly:

The top of the head is shorter, not the height of the front of the game off the floor; due to the older style cabinet.

I'm sure that will happen at some point... they're fun, but they're also a lot of work!

TNA #253! The wait is going to brutal..but worth it!

At #253 I'm curious at how long it's supposed to be before you get it? I'm now considering getting one at some point soon-ish.

I believe someone around #250 said late spring early summer. It will be hard to wait but good to have some time to save some more funds.

As the hubs said we are thinking it will be late Spring/Summer 2018, but the nice thing is it's only a $1000.00 deposit. Spooky won't bill you the full amount until the game is ready to ship. We figured we might as well secure our place in line instead of making the wait even longer.

#633 1 year ago

Hahah you guys are enablers! The grand down payment is a good idea. I've gone through a Pinball distributor in the past, but never a NIB from the manufacturer. Is it normal to go straight through Spooky for their pins? I'll definitely consider it a bit more!

Yep, I bought RZ directly from them. This time I chose to go with Kingpin as he is a really stand up guy in the community and helped me load RZ into the car at Spooky HQ . I know there are 2 other distributors and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them.

Well I wouldn't advise going direct with Spooky if there is any slight chance you may need to back out of your purchase. Spooky won't refund your deposit. Pinball Star will allow you to sell your position and they will help you do so. The person buying your spot will have to pay you the deposit for your spot. I'm not sure if Spooky will help you with this. You better ask them first if you are concerned.

I'm guessing Pinball Star won't refund your deposit either?
Spooky will also allow you to sell your position if you have a new buyer.
Spooky will also help you with sourcing a new buyer.

As I stated, "The person buying your spot will have to pay you the deposit for your spot." So it's the same either way then.

Probably better that I still have it then, you need to get that thing done . This game is very addicting and would just be a diatraction for you .Although I was thinking of bringing it back down to you Saturday if we are going to get the vortex .

Amazon doesn’t have these, not at the price you found anyway. Guess I’ll have to check out eBay as you did.

That's what I was thinking, even though it looks like 150-200 will be pushed out to Spring at this point, which is still cool
