    Hey everyone!

    As a few of you have seen, I've started streaming for SDTM pinball on Wednesday nights at 8 pm. Just wanted to start my own dedicated thread about this stream so I can send out info and get feedback from everyone.

    For those of you that haven't tuned in, each week I play a game and set a few challenging goals for myself and try to knock them out.

    I also do informal tutorials of the games I am playing, meaning I just kind of talk through the game while playing and explain why I'm doing the things in doing and also clarify anything from questions in the chat.

    Twitch.tv/sdtmpinball for the Wednesday streams.

    Twitch.tv/chuckwurt for my streams I do on my own other days of the week from time to time.

    Come hang out!!

    #2 8 months ago

    So first request of everyone:

    What game to stream this week 9/20 at 8 pm?

    Firepower
    Fire!
    Big Game
    Xenon

    #3 8 months ago

    oops... voted

    #4 8 months ago

    So far, it is Big Game going into turn 1.

    #5 8 months ago

    Great streams. Great fella. Great machines. Soon I'm ready to see the master take a seat at the Iron Throne!!!

    #6 8 months ago

    No love for tuuuuube shots? Haha

    #7 8 months ago

    Big game by fair. Obviously it's BIG and there's tons of thing on the PF & you don;t see it everyday.

    Fire is so bad. Xenon over rated as hell. Firepower great game but old news.

    EDIT: All games don't have a white & blue rubber on them do they?

    #8 8 months ago

    If it ends up being Big Game, I'll make a Pinside donation in your name.
    ( I really can't watch another Firepower video)

    I don't know why Big Game does not get the love. For me, Big Game kicks some serious ass. The casual played can have some fun banging the ball around; It is not a drain monster. And it is super fast. But to get the big points takes some pinball skills.

    #12 8 months ago

    Looks like Big Game is closing in! Would be a nice game to stream for sure because I'd like to learn more about the rule set.

    #13 8 months ago

    BIG fan of Big Game!
    As they say:
    "Go BIG or go home!"

    #14 8 months ago
    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Looks like Big Game is closing in! Would be a nice game to stream for sure because I'd like to learn more about the rule set.

    Big Game, like my other classic Sterns, has a simple rule set and two objectives.

    The SECONDARY objective is to light up inserts around play field that spell B-I-G-G-A-M-E. This action lights up your spinners and the kickout saucer at top of play field and sets you up to get big points with both spinners and the saucer.

    The PRIMARY objective is to light up all of the numbers in the "bingo cards" labeled "X", "Y" and "Z". You can set the game so two cards are always lighted at the same time. Or you can make it more difficult by only lighting one card at a time. If the "X" and "Y" are lit up and you hit the #1 drop target, the corresponding #1 inserts in cards "X" and "Y" will light up.

    There are three sets of drop targets for a total of nine targets numbered 1 thru 9. Repeat the above action for all nine drop targets and you will have lighted up all nine inserts in cards "X" and "Y". But you have to do the same to card "Z", too. How do you do that? Read on.

    There is one rollover switch in the middle of the play field and one pop bumper that switches which cards are in action as the ball moves around the play field. The card combos are "X-Y", X-Z", or "Y-Z". Or, as I said, you can make the game harder by setting up for only "X", or "Y" or "Z" to lighted up. You have little control over which card will be switched into action as it depends on how the ball is rolling. The best you can do is to try and target which targets to drop based on which cards are active.

    The more inserts you can light up inside the cards the bigger the points. Get all 27 inserts in all three bingo cards lighted up for the real big point countdown.

    The ruleset is easier to learn by watching than by reading what I just wrote. And while it is a simple rule set, getting all 27 inserts lighted up is not easy to do and does not happen all that often.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Some people do not like Big Game because they cannot figure out how to use the four flippers. There is a blocking bridge between the flippers so that the ball does not drain between the flippers as can happen on Gottlieb's Sinbad or Bally's Captain Fantastic; In other words, you cannot get "sissored" in Big Game ( there was one member here who posted pics of his Big Game and he removed those blocking bridges for some sort of different flipper challenge ). I get it but that is not the way Big Game was designed to be played.

    What you can do is trap the ball with any one of the four flippers; Each of the flippers is set up to aim for one of the drop target assemblies; Learning to do backhand flipper shots is a must. Learning to flipper pass is a nice skill to learn, as well.

    Big Game is fast and there is lots of pop bumper and drop target action. It is fun to play but it is not an easy game to master.

    #15 8 months ago

    Right on all accounts except for what lights the spinners

    Spell BIG in the top lanes to get the right spinner lit for rest of game.

    If the X card is lit, left spinner is lit.

    Big game looks like the winner as we're getting some good hype going here.

    Thanks for all the thoughts from everyone. Can't wait!

    #16 8 months ago

    can you post a link so we can tune in????

    #17 8 months ago

    https://www.twitch.tv/sdtmpinball For the Wednesday night streams. just tune in around 8.

    https://www.twitch.tv/chuckwurt For my personal stream. For this I suggest following it and set up notifications as there is no set schedule for when I go live from here.

    Okay so in case others haven't guessed, tonight's game is The Walking Dead Premium!!

    I have had this on loan from my friend @brazy and it will be leaving soon. So Brady is coming over tonight (hopefully) to play with me and we are going to get to Last Man Standing. This is the final wizard mode that requires 115 walker kills to start.

    We have never even sniffed this mode so we thought it would be fun to set the game to 10 ball and see if we can do it. haha.

    Anyway, should be fun.

    Come hang out at 8 pm eastern tonight on STDMpinball on twitch!!

    #44 7 months ago

    Thanks for watching last night! Man that TWD sesh was rough. Game set to 10 ball, and we didn't even get to Horde! Haha. Most kills we could muster was 55. Haha.

    Oh well. See everyone next week!

    We wanna see LMS! Repeat this week?

    That might work. Maybe playing solo might help. Brady's flowing locks are mesmerizing.

    #48 7 months ago

    Streaming tonight instead of tomorrow night people!! 8 pm eastern.

    Gonna give LMS another run for the money. 10 ball here we come!

    I am also going to test a theory that I think this TWD's flippers get sluggish after you have been playing the game on 10 ball for a while.
