    It’s your game do what you want.

    I don't. Everyone has had that killer ball that seems to last forever. Besides I think it just makes it more challenging when you have a bad first ball.

    Religiously.

    Of course!

    No way I can afford to do that . That would be like paying 3 dollars a game or in my case 6 dollars per minute .

    Quoted from skquinn:

    On location recently: a fellow competitor and I found a (Stern) TMNT with a two player game, with ball 1 of player 1 having already been played/plunged. He takes player 2, I take player 1. I put up a new grand champion score with only two balls in play.

    Crossing my fingers it wasn't the TMNT @ Einstein's in Richmond

    Restarts are common in my gameroom. Especially when it comes to WOZ.

    I would never restart.
    Now I own TZ with L-3 code. I am considering it.

    So many times I've had an awesome ball 1. Then drain drain drain. (Yep extra ball too). And I've put some of my best scores ever up on a great ball 3 run with bad first couple balls. I do not restart. Sometimes if it's a really bad game though I will just practice a specific shot or try a different strategy than i usually do.

    I wish it was. This was after (an attempt at) a tournament at Speedy's on Hempstead Road.

    I look forward to eventually putting up a GC on TMNT at EinStein's in Richmond though. Great collection, but it's a bit of a drive.

    Never...but definitely get discouraged when ball 1 drains quick. Every ball counts is my motto - always time for a comeback!!!

    Quoted from idealjoker:

    Here's an example of a really excellent game beginning with a disastrous ball 1 and a mediocre ball 2. It felt very satisfying kicking the machine's butt after those first two balls...

    I had a Deadpool game, 25 Million after 2 balls, final score 2.4 Billion.

    Yeah, but imagine how much higher your score would’ve been if you had started over after ball 2?

    I say that because I have/had grand champion on it. Not a monster score, only like 33.5 million, but a gentleman that goes by "SPC WES" has been destroying high scores there so I don't have grand champ on as many machines anymore. I need to get back over there.
