What is your latest pinball goal obsession?
« on: April 07, 2018, 11:29:22 PM »
I am trying to roll College Queens.  Reached 9833 today.  Getting close. Just one more try...

What goals are you trying to reach?

The biggest single shot points on T2 are from the SJP.  Hard to get that SJP, but satisfying when you do.  There are ways to grind away to decent scores such as payback time and the right orbit shot.

Keep us posted on your scores !

Also would love to see the KoD

Don’t have ready access to a TWD,  but have read about that mode. Sounds like a great challenge. Keep us posted!

Some of you would laugh at either my futility or my impossible dreams, but here goes. Keeps me busy on my games at home...

On Harley Davidson I want to see Milwaukee someday. And I refuse to use the post! Made it to 12 cities once with the help of a lot of extra balls. Getting 400 million would be nice, too.

On ACDC it would be great to get to 200 million again. Hit 150m today. It's reachable but I need to get more methodical during multiballs

Rolling Sinbad on a 3-ball game is truly the impossible dream when you can't even reliably get 400,000.

Could I ever roll Big Indian twice? With patience, who knows?

On Road Show I want to see how high I can get without extra balls. 1.5 billion isn't too bad, but I know I can do better.

On all games I am purposefully ignoring score sometimes and working on drop catches, dead flips and Shatzes. I am coming for you,  Stone!!

My goal is to be able to attend a few tournaments this year.  Family beats pinball every time.  I just wish there were a few times when the two did not clash.  In the interim, I am still looking to see Valinor or Encore multiball

Sounds like a good list to keep you occupied.  Never hurts to just practice skills on a game. The again if you shatz between the opposite flippers on Sinbad, that would not be so good ;)

Would love to see the original Mr Florida at more events, but I certainly understand the priority.

Good goals to work at. Encore is on my list to reach, but can’t say I have been actively seeking it out.  When I was on my Valinor quest, it was tunnel vision.  I basically was not playing anything else :)

Glad to know I’m not the only one who hasn’t gotten Encore. Man is it tough. I’ve only gotten 7 songs but the new software has me playing AC/DC a lot more. Time to finish some songs and ignore going for song jackpots.  I’m really digging the new software update hope Lyman keeps improving it. Stern just has to keep releasing vault AC/DC s editions and they will continue to tweak the code.

Ron you and Jeff are more than invited to the tourney at my house May 5th and 6th.  Would like to see your initials on my Ac/DC as encore champs!

Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.
