Quoted from sataneatscheese:
I really want to like this game and am thinking about trading my AFM SE for one this summer. However, after finally getting some time on the game I am completely lost. Does anybody have a particular walkthrough or video they would recommend above the others that does a good job of explaining the pin? It seems like a really deep pin that would hold up well in a small lineup... but I gotta understand the rules.
Version 3.4 of the manual on the JJP website explains every mode and includes the super useful game flowchart.
