But when I say the interview with Jersey Jack from pinballsales.com on
this months show will mark a change in pinball history, I'm
UNDERSTATING the whole situation. :-)
I know some of you are aware... some have heard rumors and
speculation... now hear it from the man himself.
Jack, I can't thank you enough for sharing this with our little
pinball podcast. I hope everyone is as excited about this as the
goofballs that put the show together are!
Happy new year everyone, and what a great year it's going to be!
Awesome Chuck, Another great podcast !
We knew he's been quiet on his website (and here) for a reason. Note
he did not even deal with the Avatar LE version after getting burned
big time by the LOTR LE fiasco.
Like I said... I know many of you are aware, but this makes it
official and "out there".
We are just proud to have this little slice of pinball history on the

This will be a huge project, but as Jack says, they already build
bigger and more complex machines.
This isn't a fly by night type thing, or wishful thinking... it will
happen. And it's only the first in a whole new line!

Oh nice. This might be the thing that brings some new and innovative
ideas back to pinball.
There is lots more to all this, but Jack was more than generous to
share the amount with us he did, and he'll release more of the details
as time goes on... maybe with us, maybe with other outlets.
Let's just say there is a WHOLE lot to look forward to with this and
all the games they will produce!

Maybe he will get King Pin done faster (don't know about cheaper
though). than it seems to be going.
I really look forward to the non-licensed pin. That will shut Gary's

Great news. But Wiz of Oz theme does nothing for me - too bad it
can't be something more contemporary.
Forgotto comment: Open Source code approach is great and will open up
a world of opportunities and will give the industry a much needed
Absolutely great news for the world of pinball! They could do some
neat stuff with the WoO. Tme to start saving money....

His focus will be on making GREAT GAMES... not just cool themes, hence
the original and licensed games. And most importantly to me is...
Jack listens... he listens to his customers, he listens to his game
designers, and he enjoys pinball as much as you and I.
Again, he'll give all the fun details when he feels time is right, and
I surely don't speak for him.
There is every reason to be excited and optimistic here folks! This
isn't an upstart hopeful company, or a MM rebuild project... it's
being done, and it's being done by the right people. :-)
Maybe he's just making them so he can sell them to himself to place in his
amusement locations. Then outside buyers wouldn't matter too much.

Thanks for for the Pod Cast Charie.. I sat here and listened and was
also happy on the announcement. I am sure Jack is reading these post
and scratching his head at some of the post he will read. I think its
a great title in the total picture of getting this machine out to as
many people as possible. My personal opinion is not to limit the
amount being made. In order to get product out there it has to be in
the publics hands. If you limit the amount and the fat cats are the
only buyers visibility will be limited to a segregated few. This
to be big and needs to be available and sounds like your passion will
make that happen. I agree on the none licence theme and believe that
the money spent in that should be put into a public figure that back
it and is well known to the youth. Its like the the Justin Beaver
being caught in the bowling alley watch bowling take off... I am
nobody in the grand scheme of things but would like to see this work
for you Jack and for us the pinball player...
It sounded like he was saying the first 1000 will be a limited Emerald
City edition...and then any more made after that would be a regular
version. That's what I took from it...
Your right Jack said the first release was 1000 pins. My mistake
I do hope he can pull this off, and wish his company all success in 2011
creating a new line of pinball games. I have bought from Jack and would
do so again!

Hope there is some local test locations in mind :-)

And heck, why not SS Billiards for test? Lord knows there are enough
pinball crazy dudes up there to work it over and keep it running! ;-)
