Keep an Eye Out for The Princess Bride Pinball People at Expo

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

Here's a quick update on The Princess Bride pinball story from yesterday. To make a long story short for those of you who missed my previous article, on Monday I received an anonymous e-mail with a link to a website that says an unnamed company is making a pinball machine based on the 1987 film The Princess Bride.


While on the website, I entered my e-mail address to get on the mailing list. A little while ago, whoever created that site sent a message out to the list. And it wasn't just me who received it, others have reached out to me to let me know that they've gotten it as well (thanks to everyone who did. I always really appreciate news tips).


Here's the message that I received:



The folks who sent this message called themselves "a group of long-time pinball developers." Not only that but they said that they will be at Pinball Expo. So keep your eyes peeled this weekend and let me know if you see anyone who looks like a big fan or fans of The Princess Bride lol.


I still don't know if this whole thing is real or what is becoming an increasingly elaborate prank, but it sure is interesting to talk about. I loved The Princess Bride when I was younger and think that it would make a great pin.


The following picture is only a random one that I found on the web, but it looks better than using an e-mail as the cover photo for this article :)

To take the mystery out of this tease it looks like this will be MultiMorphic's handiwork,when will it be announced - who knows.


SADLY it's looking like it will be a Cartoon VERSION of The Princess Bride from MM - NOT the movie version which MIGHT have been interesting - on A CARTOON Version I'm Out!

With that said the Artwork shown looks interesting.

I themed my Vpin cab on TPB - great movie and would be an awesome game! Don't think it would be a homebrew, being "entrusted with this incredible property" sounds like a company that's secured the license. Possibly the planned second game for Barrels Of Fun after Labyrinth? Many of its staff are long-term pinball developers, and they ARE at Expo ...

I really hope this is true. Never Ending Story would be above this title, but this is a definite 2nd and if done right, I would most likely order.
