Quoted from decktard:
I'm eventually planning on buying pinball #2 but I'd be interested in a game that had at least 1 easily attainable multiball mode. Right now I have a FT, however; most casual players don't get a chance at multiball. All casual players seem to love getting some multiball action easily or stumbling into multiball.
JP sticks out as an example as I believe you can use the smart missile to start mutliball at least once a game.
Bonus points for suggesting a pin in the $1500-$2000 range... but any example would work.
Not sure if how easy you want it, but with these games you are almost certain to stumble into multiball. However these games will be hard to find in your "bonus price range"-
S-M: 2 shots to start first Doc Ock mb Mode
POTC: 4 shots to the ship right in the center of the pf. Can be hit with either flipper
BDK: in first wave-One shot to get crane swinging out and then it is BEGGING to be hit to start mb
X-Men: Wolverine mb is easy to start and is in the center of the pf. Even stray balls will hit it.
Totally switching gears:
How about early EM games with lift mechanisms? Add as many balls as you want in play. Once they drain you are done though.
