    Quoted from Hwawonyu:

    Underwear? What is this the 90s?

    Quoted from Stack15:

    They weigh 300ish... so just doing the front would be about a 100-120 pound powerlift.

    Lifting the front of a machine is very simple. There's probably some sciences about it and the back legs being the fulcrum.

    Once you got bang backs down they aren't super hard...but I havn't done one in years and have no interest. I sure wouldn't want people doing it to my machines. POlus usally it's gunna be some dufus and they'll end up slam tilting it and blowing everyone's fun. probably the only rule I would have. These machines can take a ton of tilting and shaking.

    Quoted from Frax:

    kwiKimart said:No tilting and no bang-backs.

    No tilting...bwa! What a joke.

    Quoted from wbradley:

    First thing I teach a newbie is to try to avoid regularly hitting both flippers simultaneously as it reduces your odds of saving the ball. It is in Pinball 101.

    If I had a nickle for everytime I've explained this also.

    Quoted from the96stang:

    Call me a loser, Im prepared to be killed for this. But all my games are 5 balls. I never played in an arcade, my first game was a klondike set on 5 balls. Never played anything else.

    Your machines your rules! Nothing to get flamed about unless your spouting off high scores or saying wizard modes are "too easy," which you're not so play on playa!
