A Giant Clue for Spooky Pinball’s Next Game - UPDATED

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning to crank out that Stern Jaws article before driving into Manhattan for my annual cardiologist appointment. For those of you who don't know, I had two major emergency heart bypasses three months apart for aortic aneurysms in 2017.


Anyhow, when I got home, I had a BIG surprise waiting for me from Spooky Pinball 👻. Now I knew that I was in line to get the next prototype part of some other clue about its next pinball machine pretty soon, but I had no idea that it would be this big. I suspect that this may be the clue that finally gives us a good idea about what their next pinball machine's theme is.


So...let's open it together. I don't normally do Facebook Lives, but since I took the rest of the day off from work for the doctor stuff let's open this bad boy live on Facebook today at 1:00 PM Eastern time. Live in the Knapp Arcade. Hope to see you there!



Thanks to all the fine folks at Spooky Pinball for making this fun event happen :)


UPDATE: Here's a picture of the part. If you think you know what this is, let me know because I have no idea 😂 . I'll share some more pictures of it in a little bit, I'm still cleaning up all of the packing peanuts.


Here's a link to the unboxing video. It was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone for stopping by!


OK here's a few more pictures. To me, it sort of looks like the piece that Don's Pinball Podcast received fits into the piece that I received. His piece also sort of looks like a chainsaw. Texas Chainsaw Massacre maybe? I'm throwing darts here 😂




Here's the piece that was sent to Don:




To give you some perspective on the size of this thing, I'm six feet tall.

That long, thin slot on top is going to have a chainsaw comes out of it (from the back box) towards the player!

I would be curious to know if Don's part would slot into yours. Maybe the two tabs on his fitting into your two grooves, so if your's was a back panel, his could be part of an upper playfield. 🤔


Or if it went behind, the other parts (Cary Hardy's and Zach Meny's) could be attached guides bringing the ball back around from behind to the playfield again. Who knows? Fun to speculate though.


Weren't there parts that had a motor and sliding bookcase door? Could control how a ball could leave or enter a playfield or behind the back panel area.

Bug said on Thursday that they all should be talking and figuring out the parts together. That makes it seem like the parts do fit together.

a backboard? to the playfield?

looks like a back panel. maybe for some sort of ball locking devices to hide locked balls behind the back wall (like Pulp Fiction)
