Quoted from jonnyo:
If all the EBs were reserved until after regular play, the weaker player could be off playing another game (better for OPs) and not have to worry that his turn might come up at any moment.
I don't want to go off on an old man rant here, but I'm getting a little tired of younger folks wondering off in the middle of a two player game lately. It seems to be getting more acceptable these days. I don't like it for a couple of reasons.
First, it's just plain bad manners. Pinball is all about flow. Good or bad, when I'm done with my ball, I want the other player there ready to continue the game. I don't think that's a lot to ask. By the same token, I don't wander off when someone else is having a killer ball. Either way, it's rude on a number of levels.
Secondly, if someone is kicking your ass on a game, you should be watching them to learn what they are doing. Not wondering off to start another game. How are you ever gonna beat the guy if you don't watch what he's doing?
Long story short, EB's are fine as is. Watch and learn. AND STAY OFF MY LAWN, DAMMIT!!!
note: if you play on location more than me, this rule does not apply to you. play as many damb games at a time as you want.
