Coin-Op Carnival magazine

Postby cait001 » Tue Mar 05, 2019 1:57 pm

There is a new magazine coming out called Coin-Op Carnival
read about it here https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic ... ublication

Coin-Op Carnival, a new 64-page print publication, is the only source for illustrated content about electro-mechanical coin-operated devices. Each issue includes an interview with a game designer, in-depth game reviews, technical information, product reviews, comics, and more. The entire publication features new full-color illustrations on each page from me and the articles are co-written by Nick and me.

Nick and I conceived of this project over two years ago. Since that time we’ve been dedicating a tremendous amount of time and research to this important historical document that we hope will be interesting and accessible to both pinball aficionados and newcomers to this rich and fascinating industry. Here's and advanced look at some of our articles:


I have ordered a stack of copies to Ottawa to make them available to collectors. Price TBD but most likely around $22 CAD each.
