    Thanks! The scoop uses wood screws, right? I would think, if there was room, just drilling out and bolting it to the playfield would solve it. IIRC the Tortuga screws go into threaded metal sockets (T-Nuts I am guessing.) I think smaller holes on the scoop would allow for less play. However, the chance of aiming it right would decrease...because there's less play. Pinball is hard!

    Pinball innovation idea, multiple rulesets. Post #8 in topic

    Posted 22 months ago by jawjaw – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply 22 months ago

    I think it would be cool to have alternative game modes. Maybe a tutorial mode to help explain rules more as you play. That said, the average person has a hard time with any rules and is really just trying to keep ball from draining. Also, pinball is hard and it seems to take years to get just one ruleset mostly done.

    Pinball is hard. The true art isn't the engineering or illustrating or sound design, it's the accounting. It's refreshing to see a more honest approach to starting a pinball company. They could have over promised and under delivered while also stealing peoples' money. Kudos to Team Pinball if they pull this off and bring us more games in the future!
