So I'm rebuilding my 3rd set of pop bumpers in three weeks tonight. Got me thinking about buying my next project without pop bumpers.

So what are the best pins you can think of without pop bumpers. (or jet, or thumper etc.)

I thought of Shadow, Judge Dredd and Fire!.

#3 13 years ago

Definitely Fire! and don't forget No Fear.

#4 13 years ago

Yes, No Fear is rather underrated IMO

#5 13 years ago

Now that's a great game!

#6 13 years ago

No Fear, Lightning or Swords of Fury-pick your era!

When I got my SOF I didn't even think about it not having any pop bumpers, then I seen it had none and got upset. With all the trouble I see members have with them, I'm kinda glad it don't have them...

Quoted from pinmike:

Now that's a great game!

Yes, it is!

I was jut thinking about this tonight while playing Blackwater 100 ....thought it might be one of the only games without them .... then found this thread

#18 9 years ago

No Fear -It is ramp paradise!

#19 9 years ago

Solar Fire, Pharaoh, and Jungle Lord are all good games with no pops.

The shadow doesn't need any. it would ruin the flow. dunno about others.

#22 9 years ago

in the DMD era I like the Shadow best, followed by Dredd. Then Junkyard, No Fear, and Champion Pub are all kind of tied for third.

Swords of Fury is cool too though, and is my favorite non-DMD game with no pop bumpers. I'd then slot in Blackwater 100 followed by Fire to round out my favorite non-DMD games with no pop bumpers.

One really fun game without pops that has yet to be mentioned is Big Guns.

"Fire the cannon!"


#25 9 years ago

Won the thread on the first post

#26 9 years ago

SoF, Shadow, Dredd, Grand Lizard.

#27 9 years ago

Love me some ...Shadow.

#28 9 years ago

Grand Lizard! ~SpOoKy

Does Mystery Castle have any pop bumpers? On the IPDB it says 2 but I don't see them

#30 9 years ago

IMHO Shadow is the king of no pops. Other good games mentioned, but none of them are better to me than Shadow, which holds its own against some of the better pops games too.

#31 9 years ago

Maybe ToM--even if the ball goes into the pop area it very seldom ever hits one...

Yes, it does. Top/center of the playfield, kinda hidden.

Now you know... 8 years later, because someone bumped the thread.
