Some more interesting info.

Getting to Albuquerque is valuable because you can sell souvenirs. If you have acquired the right one for each city visited, you get more points. This means you want to reach Albuquerque as late as possible, so you have had the chance to get the most valuable souvenirs.

Turns out that the longest trip you can make to Albuquerque is 8 stops (including Albuquerque). There are 10 ways to maximum the distance. Notice you need to go through Atlanta for this longest trip.

--> Miami --> Atlanta --> Ohio --> NewOrleans --> Chicago --> Dallas --> Minnesota --> Albuquerque
--> Miami --> Atlanta --> Ohio --> NewOrleans --> Chicago --> KanasaCity --> Minnesota --> Albuquerque

Nice, that's a worthwhile challenge. This is anything but a linear game.

Always loved cashing in but never realized there were proper souvenirs for ea city! When I show friends the cities and mention the various combos to get to the west coast they're amazed. Time to go to work...

#105 2 years ago

Oh yeah everyone's favorite thing in my family about the pin is the ability to continue to buy in 4 times. Once you're on the journey you just don't want it to end.

Cashing in on souvenirs with bonus multiplier at 6X is very lucrative!

That's why I don't sell.

Quoted from kevmad:

People keep complaining about the linear rules. Remember, there are a lot of other things going on that makes this game fun...completing the wheel, locking 3 balls to start multiball, shooting left and right ramps to max your bonus (for a boatload of points and extra ball), shooting the blast zone for extra balls and specials, left plunger for extra ball...wow! My RS is never leaving. Getting to the west coast has to be one of the most fun modes in all of pinball!

Roadshow is a great game with a lot of fantastic shots. I agree with whomever pointed out how satisfying the Bob's Bunker/Ball Lock shot is with that spinner. I've found the key to huge scores is pounding those ramps while having the corresponding souveniers with cities visited. Huge bonuses. Also, Color DMD with this game is outstanding. The animations really pop in color.

What does one of these cost?

$400

#115 2 years ago

it's a lot of scratch and people will argue that you don't really watch the DMD a lot when playing, but I still think it's worth it. The greatest mod out there by a country mile.

#116 2 years ago

Most games are linear.... You don't randomly get to a wizard mode, you have to grind through the same exact prereqs every single time... shuffled or not they are still basically linear.

#117 2 years ago

I want a nice roadshow so bad, it's been one I've wanted for a while now. Seems like the most underrated game out there.

#118 2 years ago

Grand Champion score tonight 3,419,140,100. Such a great game, especially Super Payday, great light show!

Oh man, Los Angeles cracking off into the ocean and the dozer flying out from Earth is awesome.

Road Show gives you a lot of good chances to watch the DMD.

Roadshow is getting pretty much constant play here at SFGE.

I was walking by and there were two guys having a ball. One was repeating the callouts and cracking up ("Where's my paycheck!" And others)!

Also saw a good player get around 1.3 billion, make way across the USA. No buy-ins here!

Glad people are enjoying it...

Bump because truth.

Get yourself a Roadshow.

#125 9 months ago

Hmmm
I had mine for a year and that was enough!

Such a shame that you have to travel across the map

#126 9 months ago

"It's FRIIIIDAY!"

#127 9 months ago

Even after several years of owning, its Joy to turn it on and do Battle with Red and Ted!

Sure, everything people dont like is there, but WHAT is there is Genius!

So cool that this game is affordable still!

Do not select longest path, and you will go straight and faster to the East.
So you will still start from the same city, but you will go straight instead.
Never tried, because i don't have one

#129 6 months ago

Great shots and combos in RS! Its got depth and multiple ways of playing it.

Quoted from DefaultGen:

Shhhhh! The music sucks or something! Keep it under wraps!
It's "totally" reasonable that Road Show is often <$3k when it's a Pat Lawlor 90s B/W game thats more loaded than any other game out there.

If you don't like the music, just get a pinsound board
