    I attended a pinball party last weekend. They had a a tournament where one person takes the right flipper, the other person takes the left. The game was Fireball Classic. Each ball came down the playfield hit the fireball spinner. Two balls out the right out lane and one out the left. We never got a chance to flip. Total game time about 30 seconds. The score keeper told me we did not have the low score.

    Long: LOTR
    Short: IM or Flash Gordon

    Short: SW from Stern. Launch the ball, hit the target, roll to the outlane, bye.

    (Consistently) Long:

    Scared Stiff
    Ripley's Believe It or Not!
    Tales of the Arabian Nights
    No Good Gofers
    Junk Yard
    Xenon , if I can make my shots

    (Consistently) Short:

    Class of 1812
    Cactus Jack's
    Black Knight
    Bram Stoker's Dracula
    Xenon , if I'm unable to hit the broad side of a barn.

    Wild Card: Theatre of Magic. My most consistent game. I've yet to even reach The Grand Finale, but I've seldom had a 1-minute game on it either (I'm looking at you Black Knight. Black Knight: HAA HAA HAA!).
