    Ever needed a good long drink during play of an epic ball?
    Where you needed to slake your thirst, but couldn't because your in the midst of playing one of your more memorable games?

    Aside from the obvious flipper trap, what pins give you enough time during play to get in a quick refreshment?

    I'll start off with Metallica after lighting up Sparky.
    Hell yeaahhhh, I could damn near mix a fresh drink with the time allowed during the Sparky electrocution graphic.

    Works on all pins - I like it.
    Do they make a half-gallon bourbon on one side and 2L Coke on the other?

    Path of the dead on lotr is when I take a sip of beer.

    Coin door ball save!

    TZ with home rom, catch ball in flipper, hit button. game pauses for 15 minutes

    #7 2 years ago

    There is no safe zone when playing manly EM's

    #8 2 years ago

    Addams, showtime. Metallica, sparky multiball sequences! I always drink when I lock a ball on getaway seems perfect for a gulp. Same w/ Pinbot, bk2k, taxi hmmm.... lol

    most games you can throw it up in the pops for a quick sip.
    3rd ball lock on Star Trek
    3rd ball lock on GOT when you pick 2 modes, let all the animations go for the modes and mb you can make a drink and a sandwhich.

    #12 2 years ago

    GOT: Mode selection + BW mb stack usually gives me enough time to down a 6-pack

    Lol you beat me by 22 secs

    Eveytime you get a SDTM drain on Ghostbusters. You can get drunk really fast like that!

    #15 2 years ago

    I'm gonna have to play GOT more often, sounds like a veritable drinkin' fest of a pin.

    #16 2 years ago

    Xmen when you get the last ball locked for Magneto multiball.

    LOL, my liver would take a SDTM hit.

    #18 2 years ago

    Oh yeah, another great time to take a drink is when you look down and see a ghosted insert or when your new cabinet splits down the seems and falls apart! You can just kind of step back and say. son of a B******.

    Haha ^^ Might be able to take a quick one during the Capt. Card pop out hole as it runs through the progression. Might be too fast though, I will test tonight for science.

    #20 2 years ago

    We just let one person take both flippers. I usually play the left flipper and her the right. We get lots of comments on location when we play other players. Kind of like one handed billiards.

    #21 2 years ago

    The hand thingy on JM

    I just do anything I need to do between balls while the ball "waits" in the shooter lane. With ball times that fast you're bound to not even get thirsty provided to take a nice big gulp before you start playing!

    Damn newer Sterns with ball auto launch (menu setting?).

    Recently played KISS on location at a barcade and after playing ball #1, left ball #2 in the shooter lane.

    Took a long drink & ball auto launches & I promptly spill on myself trying to get back to the controls.

    #24 2 years ago

    Defeating the power in TZ gives you a moment to swig a beer. Same goes for FGY when you complete stewies playfield.

    #25 2 years ago

    The countdown for release when multiball starts on Firepower is a good opportunity to take hands of the flippers in an otherwise busy game.

    That is called split flipper out here. There are tournaments where everyone teams up and must use right or left only and that same hand only to bump. Can hold a drink in other hand but ball times are often shorter - leading to more drinking pauses and possible yelling at your partner!

    As long as the beer is more expensive than the game, I suggest changing your priorities!

    The only time Tron slows down is sea of simulation, if you have them all ready apart from light cycles, you could drink two beers while that sucker freaks out counting up flynn, gem, clu, Zuse, quorra, disc......

    #30 2 years ago

    Video mode on Tommy. Just move the plane to the bottom and drink up.

    Hmmm ..... beer or pinball, beer or pinball ... I choose ... Beer!

    #32 2 years ago

    Cyclone Ferris Wheel. You could probably chug a 6 pack with some practice...

    Hitting Rudy is his fat mouth before multiball

    #36 2 years ago

    This is an easy one for me. Junkyard has many mini games. And dog levels. Multi ball break. And also outer space cut scene. I like to have the buds over, all of us get one beer. 4 person game and you have to try and chug your beer while playing. Beer goes inside the greatest pin mod of all time, the pingulp, for each players turn. Whoever can finish their beer first...they get 20mill points 2nt 10m and 3rd 5 mill 4th gets you nothing. Whoever finishes with the least points chugs a beer. Rinse and repeat 6 or 7 times

    #37 2 years ago

    I'll admit it.
    Ive purposely put off adjusting my GB leg levels a bit so I take extra swigs while the ball is hung up in the pops.

    #38 2 years ago

    After shooting both balls on the fourth face on Bride Of Pinbot.

    #39 2 years ago

    I can get shit faced with all the stops on RFM

    Just found a new way to play pin !
    A couple of buds & I play 'til the wee hours of the morning, but haven't tried that one before.

    #41 2 years ago

    Sometimes I do crappy on purpose!

    #42 2 years ago

    Let it drain. You can always start again. What's more important, a good drink or pushing a button (unless it's a really good game)

    #43 2 years ago

    I'm just going to install these on all my games.

    Aerosmith just before multiball

    Castle teardown in MM

    #46 2 years ago

    No Good Gofers after completing 9-holes before the special starts. Hmmm....just like on a real golf course!

    #47 2 years ago

    Ghostbusters left scoop with Tobin, extra ball and Librarian lit. You can take a drink, a piss and a selfie during that.

    #48 2 years ago

    Basically the whole time you're playing The Hobbit
