New and esoteric ways to gamble in pinball

Postby Opto on Thu Jun 09, 2011 10:20 am

As fun as playing a normal four player game for a buck is . . . depending on the machine it can take a really long time. In the name of being able to get more dollar games in a shorter period of time, we've found a few ways to change it up. I realize these throw a more random element into the game . . . but it's gambling . . . so why the hell not? Here are a few that we did in at the NW show - anyone have any cool ideas to shake it up further?

One handed Nip it - mini zipper flippers just aren't tough enough as is

Right flipper button only BK2000 - IMO the only interesting way to play the game.

One handed Highest Warp Factor STTNG - Score matters not - it's the person who gets to the highest warp factor that wins the game/dollar. This is AWESOME.

Demo Man - Score doesn't matter - Most trigger combos wins.

Lowest score without tilting . .

Dr. Who - One handed for most loops.

I think it could be cool to play for most "X" awards that are usually worthless - like Most Tales Told on FT . . . I don't even know how to tell a tales on that game.

It'd be fun to do a whole gimmick scoring tournament like this. A handful of these machines are already at the CBar...

I'm a sucker for gimmicks and gambling. I'd play. I liked the lowest score competition skillshot did this weekend, but some of these other ideas sound like a, um, ball.

Apex.

Goals score on WCS'94 could work.

Highest hurry-up collected on MM would be fun, especially when someone sets the bar high but drains before collecting. Just have to start 1 MB to get to that point.

X amount of shots on a ramp but that shit gets boring.

I've never done a blind hit the score without going over before, but I hear it's a blast.

Tommy dollars is pretty fun. Each person takes a dollar and can place it on the glass to try and obscure a shot or flipper. Wetting the buck a little before placing it keeps it from sliding around.

Even better if there are weak flippers.

What about whether or not DannyB slam tilts his game during a tourney? Or tilts another players ball?

This one courtesy of Pat - One Flipper Only (fill in the blank).

Dark Knight and WCS are great for this w/ the right flipper only. We had a 4-player game of WCS where the scores were 7??, 4??, 4?? and 2??

BK2000 is alright w/ right flipper only, but it's still boring.

TZ is pretty good as a left flipper game
