    Quoted from Goronic:

    CrazyLevi, we know you hate the hobbit, but ... you need to play the hobbit with:
    1. A properly set up pitch
    2. In a controlled sound room with the exact sound settings
    3. Complete and total understanding of all the complex modes, locks, and ring functionality.
    4. Appreciation for a fan layout on a pinball machine with heavy drop target usage
    5. Love and appreciation of a LCD screen with enough instrumentation to make NASA engineers heads spin.
    6. Tolkien fan - to a fault
    Then, and only then, can you appreciate that the machine is not floaty, slow, or boring.

    This made me LOL. It is comical how you almost need an instruction card on how to best enjoy The Hobbit. Pinball should be immediately gratifying and not require a ton of conditions to be ideal in order to enjoy the game. Personally I think the The Hobbit is beautiful but lacks interesting shots. I can only imagine how much better it would have been if the shots were as exciting as the code. JJP#3 and JJP#4 will learn from these mistakes. My two cents.

    Quoted from pinballer0415:

    I'm not saying it took me 500 games to learn the rules. The rules are actually quite easy and the display tells you everything you need to know. But it has taken me time to figure out exactly what I want to stack. When you have 31 modes, it is hard to initially know where each mode is located on the hexagon. Certain modes stack well with multiballs, while others are great for single ball play. Being able to change mode via the left ramp helps me choose certain modes and specific points in the game.

    This feels like WAY TOO much work for pinball enjoyment. Memorizing 31 modes and their "stack-a-bility"? I can't. Do. That. Ever.
