    Pretty important piece popped up on the frontpage of Kotaku a major gaming website and Lifehacker a nerdy website: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-win-at-pinball-1828489783

    That is cool they featured it but... that might literally be the worst article I’ve read all week. To summarize: “read the scorecard. LOOK at the display for your score. Try not to drain.”
    And that’s about as long as the article is!

    How about a link to IPDB or pinball map?

    Lol...

    “Follow three principles:

    1. Survey the board before you play.
    2. Trap and aim the ball.
    3. Point the ball at the blinking lights.
    4. Watch the digital display for objectives.
    5. Read the rule card.
    6. Go for the multiball.”

    Three, huh?

    Not to mention that this is a overly-simplistic synopsis of the Vox video that came out earlier this week. Great journalism, Lifehacker!
