It’s the Pinball Co-op’s latest game, of course! Now when someone comes up to you on the street and asks you, you can reply with confidence. Start up a game and you’ll find your ability to spell Barracora put to the ultimate test.

barracora

Barracora is a gorgeous 1981 Williams System 7 game. Central to a high score on Barracora are the two sets of drop targets. B-A-RR on the left and A-C-O-R-A on the right. The clever reader may notice that this spells “Barracora”. Finishing the left set of drop targets in order lights the upper left saucer ball lock for a two-ball multiball. Finishing the right set lights the upper ball lock, which will only set the ball loose if the left lock is completed.


The fish lady has sent Tony Soprano and his pinball machine to the depths of the Hudson river with a pair of cement shoes. Come check it out during February’s Shortest Month Series tournaments or during Friday fun nights.

If you’ve ever wanted to relive the glory days of Three Mile Island, you’re in luck. Total Nuclear Annihilation (TNA) has come to the Pinball Co-op!

TNA2017blog

Spooky Pinball’s 2017 rampless classic defines the “simple to learn, difficult to master” design philosophy. Players begin their journey at one of nine reactors and progress by destroying them one by one. As reactors are destroyed, their point value increases, along with the difficulty. Will you be the first to destroy all nine? Probably not. It’s pretty hard.


If all of this sounds daunting to you, worry not! Rare for pinball design, TNA features a cooperative mode. Gather a team of two to four players and go for the fabled reactor 9 and fight for a chance at Pinball Co-op immortality. You can start cooperative mode by holding down the start button at the start of the game and waiting for the monitor to prompt you.


Come check out Total Nuclear Annihilation at Wednesday’s league nights or Friday’s fun nights.

Devil's Dare, the 1982 Gottlieb classic that one former Vermont State Champion has declared "ahead of its time," has arrived at The Pinball Co-op!

This wide body game is longer than a typical pinball machine and features 3 flippers, 3 banks of drop targets, 2 spinners, a bunch of spot targets in more. Players are able to earn a button-activated, left outlane kickback, along with 2 and 3 ball multiballs.  This game is loaded with great shots and tons of fun.


Come check it out during Week 4 of the Vermont Pingolf League or during Friday night's fun night.

The Pinball Co-op has replaced one classic Gottlieb with another. The 1980 drop target phenom, Panthera, fills the spot in the room that has been occupied for over a year and a half by Black Hole.


This game features 3 sets of color coordinated drop targets that match the lanes at the top of the playfield and the inlanes/outlanes at the bottom. As you turn out the lane lights, the corresponding light is turned on at each of the drop bank targets, making those drop targets even more valuable to knock down. The game remembers which lit drop targets have been knocked down so players can maintain their progress throughout the game. Also, don't forget to turn out the flashing 1, 2, and 3 lights to earn an extra ball and advance your bonus.


This game is a ton of fun, so make sure to come check it out the next time we're open.


See Todd Tuckey from TNT Amusements talk about some of the game's history and describe some of its basic featues.
