Pintastic 2018 Why Jersey Jack's Success Matters

At Yesterday’s Pin­tas­tic NE Jer­sey Jack of Jer­sey Jack Pin­ball held a sem­i­nar about his busi­ness that pro­duces some of the best pin­ball machines on the mar­ket. These games are con­stantly in demand both on the mar­ket and at the show:

Dur­ing the sem­i­nar one of the atten­dees asked him an obvi­ous ques­tion, why has he made it when oth­ers have failed? Here was his answer.

This is not a light thing to say because it must be remem­bered he started this busi­ness in the Obama years before the Trump boom AND because when it comes down to it a Pin­ball machine is not a necessity.

I think thank­ing God and a bunch of oth­ers is impor­tant as was his deci­sion to mar­ket to indi­vid­u­als, but for my money the real secret is the fact that in terms of sub­ject mat­ter, video, art­work and dis­play, all of his games are PG rated or lower. I asked him why he made that deci­sion and his answer was telling

Note that he didn’t say: “I don’t think any­one should make an R rated game”, he just decided that as a Grand Knight of the Knights of Colum­bus, and a Catholic Eucharis­tic Min­is­ter involved in his church, he decided that he wasn’t going to mak­ing any­thing that wasn’t fam­ily friendly.

In an era when kinder­gartens are hav­ing very inap­pro­pri­ate stuff pushed at them and Dis­ney has appar­ently decided that being “woke” is more impor­tant that being fam­ily friendly that’s an incred­i­bly rad­i­cal decision.

At Yesterday’s Pintastic NE Jersey Jack of Jersey Jack Pinball held a seminar about his business that produces some of the best pinball machines on the market. These games are constantly in demand both on the market and at the show:

During the seminar one of the attendees asked him an obvious question, why has he made it when others have failed? Here was his answer.

This is not a light thing to say because it must be remembered he started this business in the Obama years before the Trump boom AND because when it comes down to it a Pinball machine is not a necessity.

I think thanking God and a bunch of others is important as was his decision to market to individuals, but for my money the real secret is the fact that in terms of subject matter, video, artwork and display, all of his games are PG rated or lower. I asked him why he made that decision and his answer was telling

Note that he didn’t say: “I don’t think anyone should make an R rated game”, he just decided that as a Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, and a Catholic Eucharistic Minister involved in his church, he decided that he wasn’t going to making anything that wasn’t family friendly.

In an era when kindergartens are having very inappropriate stuff pushed at them and Disney has apparently decided that being “woke” is more important that being family friendly that’s an incredibly radical decision.
