    Why is it that so many wife's DON'T play. Is it because they THINK they are no good at it or they KNOW they are no good at it. Reminds me of an old GF, she loved to ride in my Mustang and one time I asked her if she would like to drive it and she said no. Every once in a while I'd ask her and every time she would say no. I finally asked her why she kept saying no and she said "what if I'm really bad at it and I wreck your car". Long story short, she got to be a pretty good "hard" driver of that car and loved every minute behind the wheel goin thru the gears.

    Quoted from blondetall:

    A lot of my female friends find it intimidating, worried that they will look stupid because they dont know what they are doing, or wont be good at it so they dont bother to try. Once I tell them that I own the darn things and I am not good either, because a lot of it is luck, then they are more open to trying. I show them how to flip each flipper seperate, how to use the ball launch since all of mine are different, and then give them something simple to shoot for instead of trying to explain the whole game at once. Then, once they get that (like feeding the T Rex on JP) a few times they usually ask more questions or want another goal. I like to start them out on RFM since it is the easiest rule-wise for beginners (shoot the aliens that pop up) before moving on to hard ones, and I wiped the scores on MSF recently and turned the knocker hits way up, so them getting on the board was a big loud deal. They loved it.

    Great plan.
