    I was raised on 5 balls ---- we were stupid back then, and that hasn't changed. Now, with better players and deeper rules, I wish we could set games for MORE than 5 balls, at least for awhile. When I read the debates about wizard modes, I have only Bowen's videos, glass off with the rulesheet in hand, or socks in the outlanes like I do for the little kids. My machines complain "It's not beautiful being easy" and wonder why the second half of the programming is so neglected. Maybe a buyin button on freeplay ROMs or a way to start near wizard level would help. Share the beauty of the games with the rest of us!
