Anyone know what the proper replay score cards would read for 5 ball play? Mine only came with 1 instruction card and 1 score card. The instruction card says 3 Balls per game and the score card says 1 replay for 60,000, 74,000 and 82,000. Or is this a 5 ball replay card? The guy had the game set on 3 ball but I’ve switched it to 5 ball.

Just wondering if those replay numbers are for 3 ball or 5 ball play. If they are are for 3 ball, maybe someone could send a pic of a 5 ball score replay card. I know they usually make multiple cards in a range for both but I’m just trying to get a general idea what the 5 ball range is. Thanks!

Download a full set of score cards here - http://www.pinballrebel.com/pinball/cards/

There are adjustment pins in the backbox (usually) so you can choose your reward levels, the score cards you can download are indicated for conservative / recommended / liberal for both 3 ball and 5 ball

Thank Jude, that’s exactly what I was needing before I adjust the pins. I wasn’t aware of that site.

It's awesome, I threw something in the tip jar when I found it.

I'm fairly new to pinball ownership and learning about / understanding award settings, differences in play 3 ball vs. 5 ball, and conservative / liberal settings for these old EM games was interesting. After playing for years, seeing the rules / cards, playing machines that were set up harder or easier but not really understanding how it was all adjustable, being able to set up a game to ones liking was really fun.

Whatever card you need, just ask me.
I don't know if I have them, but I do have a lot.

After many years I switched my Fast Draw from 5 ball to 3 ball and adjusted the side drains to be liberal, for me it has made it much more enjoyable. You can get the ABC 2X bonus multiplier on every ball instead of only ball 5, plus can get up to 3x bonus on last ball. Games end up lasting about as long as 5 ball but each ball lasts longer and the side drains are no longer at aggravation level. I've never used 3 ball before that or since but for this game it worked for me.

It's the only way I ever want to play that game. Makes it so much more interesting.

I wouldn’t mind trying that. Is it a post adjustment that you did to make the side drains more liberal or are you talking about moving the outside lane guides? Thanks

I used the existing 'liberal' post playfield screw holes for the posts above both side drains (the posts that have standard screws that don't go thru the plastics) to move them inward a bit, reduces the number of drains and gives you better chance at completing the drop targets. You can also move the ones between the upper targets to make them a little easier/harder. The posts for the upper B lane can be made harder by raising them up higher than the A and C but I left them even. Inner flipper lanes can be moved one position also.

3 ball is the only way to play QD/FD.

I think I’ll take you guys’ advice. Thanks for all the input.

Thanks for letting me know about the post adjustments next to the outlanes. That 1/8-1/16” makes a big difference. I also solved an issue with the ‘C’ rollover relay not firing due to the metal plate getting dislodged over the armature.

Incredible game and thrilled I bought it.
