We very much appreciate your consideration to support TWIP and help keep This Week in Pinball running!

TWIP LE Early Access Correspondence

TWIP LE “EARLY ACCESS” correspondence is available for $20/month supporters of TWIP.  This week we’ll share what we know about the Munsters artwork leak, so sign up if interested!

Click here if you’re interested in an example of these EARLY ACCESS emails!

In that example, we confirmed a rumor, and shared some unconfirmed rumors of new titles – rumors that we’ve heard but aren’t vetted enough to include on TWIP.



Two ways to enter

1.    Consider making a monthly donation via the PayPal button below or Patreon, which you can find here.  You’ll automatically be entered each month you make a donation, and also get additional TWIPerks based on your giving level.  Your contribution will help support this website.

 

2.    Donate nothing, and send an email to thisweekinpinball@gmail.com to let us know you want to be entered, and include your name, address (including city and state), and email address, and you’ll be entered for that month.  You’ll just have to send the email every month to be included.

Please Note

Here is the bad news.  Unfortunately, we had to limit the giveaways to the United States, and also need to exclude New York, Florida, Rhode Island, and Puerto Rico.  Including those states or other countries was prohibitively expensive and complicated.  We’re disappointed too.  Sorry!!  But you can get all the other TWIPerks anywhere in the world!


The Giveaways

We are going to do a batch of giveaways every month.  Below under the “September Giveaways” are all the giveaways for September (that is pretty straightforward, right?).  Before we get to the September Giveaways, I want to give a teaser for some of the huge giveaways we will have down the road.
