The perfect time to stock up for the next game... I don't even have a use right now, but taking advantage of Comet's sale and Titan's to get common shop-out parts.

Me today : Ah ha ha. I am so smart. I have everything I need for my next machine, and I saved money!

Me in a couple months : WTF?! Who ever heard of a 3 1/13" rubber ring?!? Does Titan even make that?

haha. I didn't get any rubber - just random star posts, magnetic nut drivers ( honestly not sure why I've waited so long to get these), some other random stuff. New balls, and of course lights.

Trip Alert!
Saturday December 4, headed to Maryville MO. About 2 hours out of Des Moines or Kansas City.
Local picks ups going down need to occur by Friday evening. Deliveries back up in MN will occur Sunday.
PM with hauling needs…

Took a deep dive examining all of the features and ux design on wonka ce tonight. All of the strategy, and archievents and goals to make is truly inspiring on the pin game design side. As a someone once said, to paraphrase… I walk up and scr*w a stern, but I make l*ve to a JJP.

Also got my first play on Sterns Godzilla LE which is truly a great. Artwork, layout, game design, brand are all top notch and The Stern team brought their A game, plus some. My only critique is the gray powder coat. Love the silver fleck, but lacks base color contrast, plus, I would have chrome’d the f*cker from legs and trim to habitrails and ramps plus the toys need animatronics (which are probably to high risk when a bulk of the games need to be bulletproof on the op side. Can’t wait to see what the mod makers bring.

Love the building/elevator mech, and feel it’s implementation dramatically pushed the envelope forward, with respect to changing ramp directions and flow. My hat’s off to the team; and yeah, I called it with my criticism of Zeppelin and glad the answer was granted. (All game designers, innovators, and inventors, are as thick as thieves; don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, lol).

Thanks to my best and favorite supporter for the hospitality, conversation, and play this evening. I had a blast!

I've always been too afraid to ask, why are 2 player versions sometimes more desirable than 4 player versions? Are the rules different? Backglass?

#2248 28 days ago
Quoted from roffels:

Lighter heads and fewer score reels to clean is reason enough for me. Depending on the game (I believe) - there may be smaller/simpler mechanisms controlling the active player. Rules between 2 and 4 player games are typically the same (1 player games definitely get the advantage there.)

Edit for a more Surfer centric answer - compare the backglasses. In this particular case, the artwork is cooler with half the number of score reel windows eating into the art work.
