    My father (86) celebrated with us yesterday our delayed Christmas party. His girl-friend (88, indeed eighty-eight played for the first time in her live with a pinball machine. I set my MM on 10 balls. She succeeded to destroy two castles, the third one almost.

    Isn't that awesome?

    Be prepared to enjoy pinball much longer than many might expect

    I like that you set it to 10 ball. Much friendlier . I feel like for most people that is the biggest turn off (when they get a short game). Very cool story

    Indeed ... in the nineties, arcade owners reduced the number down to three here in Switzerland, five balls became an exception. Maybe another reason why newbies got frustrated and stopped playing soon after having discovered pins.
