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!

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.
