Will jjp and Chicago gaming ever release another game?

#55 85 days ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Was Monty Python and the Holy Grail an influence for Medieval Madness? Catapulted cow, a wise French voice talking about a hamster...

Ummmm... yes. Is this a mystery ?

#56 85 days ago

How do I lose a Pinball inside my game when playing, only to never find it, when I open the game?
Did it run off with the missing sock from my dryer?

#57 85 days ago

Why did The Fireball character get a new hairdo from original to Classic? Is he Odin, or Wotan?
Was Jack in the Box meant to be pornographic?
Why are the plastics design Burlap on a pin from 4Million BC?

Quoted from Rezdog:

What the record is for longest amount of time a ball has spent in a single pop-bumper trip.

#63 85 days ago
Quoted from mcvetyty:

What the record is for longest amount of time a ball has spent in a single pop-bumper trip.

No idea on time.

The game would have been a Game Plan Cyclopes. Ball bouncing between rubber ring and lower left pop bumper. Usually a path is worn through the wood on them. People leave it go and walk away.

"Crazy" Bob has been battling an un-diagnosed mental illness for years but hasn't got the help he needed. The pinball universe hasn't been kind to him and now he's stuck with a permanent label. #helpbob

#65 85 days ago

What happens when you get to the end of the TFTC video mode? I played the crap out of this game and never got it. There is an audit in the game that says "deepest doors" the count stayed at 0.

#66 85 days ago

Why does Thunderbirds exist

#67 85 days ago
Quoted from Coolpinballdino:

Why does Thunderbirds exist

Because homepin manufactured it. Simple enough.

#68 85 days ago

Why is it when just about every new game is released, at least 90% of the time, it has nothing to do with the 21st century?

#69 85 days ago
Quoted from Boat:

Extra ball

#70 85 days ago

Why would Nedry do this?

#71 85 days ago

Deaf dumb and blind kid simulator? Actually think The Who Tommy’s “flipper blinders” are a pretty cool unique idea

LOL

How visually impaired precisely was the SF2 translite artist?

#74 85 days ago

VARKON

#75 85 days ago

Why did all the Bally 4 players EMs made in the 70s all have ONE red post when the rest of the posts were white?

#76 85 days ago
Quoted from weeze:

That was a Greg Kmiec trademark. Before they gave them credit for design, he put it in there as his signature.

#77 85 days ago

How can I accidentally drop a screw/nut/spacer inside the cabinet and the part is never to be found? Does the part end up in a parallell universe?

#78 85 days ago

...any news on who robbed 2 guys in Watervliet NY? that story came and went and I haven't heard any follow up...

#79 85 days ago

Who is the "Kora" mentioned several times on Williams Algar playfield/plastics?

Why do Pinbot and Jackbot each have that single transparent blue standup target when every other target is opaque?

How did Constantino Mitchell not get fired after creating such hideous artwork on early Williams SS games like Phoenix?

#80 84 days ago

Why did Stern decide to keep raising prices while obviously cutting back on the quality control team?

Yeah, I know...profit margins.

#81 84 days ago

How did Stern early SS games not sell as well as inferior Ballys of the same era?

#82 84 days ago

What does the creepy guy's voice in Wonka look like? Is he hiding under the game while I'm playing sucking on a lollipop?

#83 84 days ago

Why is it that right after you buy a pin, the very next day, a nicer one pops up for way cheaper?

#84 84 days ago

Where is Vid hiding?

#85 84 days ago
Quoted from o-din:

Licenses are much cheaper

Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

I heard they team up with the missing socks and go back packing across Europe

#87 84 days ago
Quoted from Coolpinballdino:

Why does Thunderbirds exist

Quoted from snowy_owl:

Because homepin manufactured it

based on the design input and feedback of Aussie Arcade sycophants.

That's why he reacted so badly on pinside when it landed North of the equator and reality hit home with honest reviews.

#88 84 days ago
Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

Where is Vid hiding?

He is not hiding....a little piece of him exists in us all.

#89 84 days ago

How many dimples does it take to flatten a playfield?

#90 84 days ago

And wtf is the deal with 1X bonus inserts?

#91 84 days ago

Why didn't the dumbass just #paytheboob!

#92 84 days ago

What does the album and Game title Capt. Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy have to do with pinball and a scene from Tommy?

#93 84 days ago

Why are pinballs round instead square, egg shaped, or puck shaped ?

We are always seeing playfield changes. Why not the thing we use the flippers to hit ?

Have you ever noticed that no matter where in the world they were built...all pyramids have the same shape?

That hurts my head, i'm going off to do something mindless.

How do you find something more mindless than this...?

#97 84 days ago
Quoted from mbeardsley:

No they don't, they only have the same shape. That's a ridiculous statement.

'microsoft solitare'.

#99 84 days ago
Quoted from Chuck_Sherman:

Elton John was in the Tommy movie

#100 84 days ago
Quoted from mbeardsley:

Have you ever noticed that no matter where in the world they were built...all pyramids have the same shape?

You have to remember how they came to be.

Aliens from outer space had these huge rock square blocks to use as landing pads for their spacecraft. When they dropped them on planet Earth. One corner went into the ground instead of flat side down. So now this square half buried looks like a pyramid.
