Skill Shot is anti-racist and anti-fascist. We strive to be inclusive, build community, and embrace anyone who shares the love of pinball (unless you’re a jerk). The pinball scene is largely white. It’s important to reflect on why, and how to continue to make our community more accessible. Pinball is for everyone.


Skill Shot Coloring Book!

Here’s something to do when you have time on your hands – print out the images and color them how you like! These pages are full size (8.5″ x 11″) and will probably work best with colored pencils – if you want to use crayons or some other medium you may want to use thick paper.

Skill Shot 56

Team Skill Shot unfortunately did not get our spring issue #56 to the printer before the virus pandemic started. Given that most of our distribution points are now-closed bars and arcades, we’ve decided to publish issue #56 online in the print layout format. Please note that we have not updated any of the ads or text since the outbreak started and you should assume any events mentioned for March and April have been canceled. On desktop browsers, click each spread to open, then click the top-right corner to zoom in. Text versions of each post coming soon.

November 2020 note: the WordPress updates may effect the slideshow feature and you may need to open each image in a new tab to see it clearly.
