    I sometimes wonder if it would be better if extra balls were played after all regular balls because it's often the case where one player clearly outclasses another, so the weaker player is just waiting and waiting. 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.

    Quoted from DaveD:

    I know my wife would love it! She hates waiting her turn when I am doing well.

    That's what got me thinking about it. If I get a 15 minute ball going, you can bet there's an EB or two stacked behind it. My girlfriend likes watching/playing pinball but not for half an hour. So usually she'll go off with a friend. Then it's her turn and she's gone. So to avoid that I'll just play casual with her, but that's kind of weak.

    Quoted from Slaymetender:

    king pin does this with bonus games after the regular game ends. the bonus game has different rules too. i find it pretty cool.

    Kingpin, Black Knight and others do this but they are basically timed rounds for bonus points. NBA is basically earning an EB (which is cool, don't care for the game in general, though).
