Three Drop Target questions for you:

1. What post-EM pins have at least THREE sets of drops and have at least NINE drop targets? (NOT COUNTING INLINE DROPS -- Please don't include Centaur/EBD here...)

2. Which post-EM pin has the most drop targets of all (not including inline drops)?

3. What is your favorite post-EM drop target pin of all time?

(Please thumbs up a favorite drop target pin if you agree with the selection being "best drop target pin of all time" -- if the thread is interesting enough, I'll scrape the top 10 pins with the most thumbs up and conduct a poll from it for the Grand Champion...)

thanks!

1. I am loving my Seawitch right now. It's such a pure drop target game. It has 3 sets of drop targets to bash down over and over. There's a bank of 3, 4, and 4 targets for 11 total.

2. Black Hole has a LOT of drops with 16.

3. I think Black Hole might be the best Drop Target game ever.

I wish I had one locally to play.

drop targets are great.

LOL, I'm looking to improve my short list, and if you love BH and dislike CBW -- no chance in hell I can add that one !

Black Knight is a great one with 12, and that one is in my collection.

I only recently played a Stern Meteor for the first time and loved it. 3x 3 bank drop targets and 1x 6 bank of targets. So 15 in total.
Gtb Sinbad is another favorite of mine, at 10 targets other games have more of them but this game is just so much fun.

#10 5 years ago

Farfalla by Zaccaria has 17 drop targets.
How many on WPT ?

#11 5 years ago

Medusa. Metamorphic drop targets!

WPT has 16.

#13 5 years ago

Gotta have catacomb! 4 sets of three, baby.

#14 5 years ago

Maverick has 17

#15 5 years ago

Count-Down : four banks of four = 16
Joker Poker : one each bank of 1,2,3,4,5 = 15

#16 5 years ago

YES! Poker hands that are utilized with a fabulous ruleset.

#17 5 years ago

I LOVE drops, BK2K!

Only when they drop correctly.

#19 5 years ago

Nice thread. Drop targets are and have always been my favorite feature on a pinball machine. Classic Sterns are full of 'em. Gotta mention Big Game. Nine drops (3x3) that tie in nicely to the end of ball bonus.

#20 5 years ago

I almost forgot my favorite drop target game.

#21 5 years ago

Gottlieb Joker Poker. SS version of course

#22 5 years ago

El Dorado has 15 drop targets .. But it's another mediocre game.

#23 5 years ago

I really enjoy my WPT and its' 3 sets of drop targets totally 16. Just shy of other drop target kings.

#24 5 years ago

I REALLY like inline drop targets. i really like them on metallica, centaur and flash gordon. The one thing i don't like about the ones on metallica is that they break easily. My buddy has had to replace his twice and his game probably has less than 500 plays on it.

#25 5 years ago

The only thing I don't like about drop targets is when you hit them on edge and it sends the ball towards a bad place

#26 5 years ago

i forget to mention that i hate the drop target in front of the ball lock on fishtales. It's so frustrating when it sends the ball screaming SDTM

#27 5 years ago

I also like the way the drops are integrated into JD. The bad impersonator mode as well as opening the VUK shot for collecting the jackpots.

#28 5 years ago

What are the games that only have 1-2 drops? The first one that comes to mind is T2. I believe that only has one drop target.

#29 5 years ago

My Jungle lord has 3 sets of drop targets, 11 targets in total. I think the other Wms Sys 7 would all be similar.

YES! Love drops. Any drops. All drops. Gum drops.

jurassic park lost world has one

#32 5 years ago

Solar Fire is one of my favorites, it has 4 banks and a total of 13 drops. another of my favorites would be Nine Ball, 3 banks of drops (or 5 if you count the left bank as 2, since it has a post in the middle and the single non-standard drop target at the horseshoe) and 15 total drops!

#33 5 years ago

Bally mystic has 9. (3 x 3)

I love drop targets, their a great visual representation tool for accomplished goals.

#34 5 years ago

Safe Cracker with 12, in a very tight area!

STTNG has one drop target, and you can't even see it -- it's under the Borg ship.

#36 5 years ago

Nexttopin, where did you get those awesome targets for BK2K? Would love a set for my own machine.

Shadow has 1 drop and so does WOZ.

I can't think of a better place to put these, compliments of Vid1900

I am wondering how well the drops in THLE will integrate into gameplay. They've been hyping them to the point where that seems to be the main feature of the game. Talk about a bad drop effecting how a game plays!

#47 5 years ago

Flash Gordon -11.

Drop targets are great. In-line drop targets are the best.

#48 5 years ago

Williams Defender is also a unique game with lots of drops. while it only has two banks of drops, it has 2 inline, two in the middle of the playfield (!), and one in front of the lock shot. For a total of 15 drops.

And I think the 10 drops in the two banks are individually controlled by the mpu. I could be wrong though.

#49 5 years ago

You guys are good at this. I had no idea about all the drops in the following pins:

* safe cracker
* hot shots
* maverick
* world poker tour
