So far....spent two hours with them last night on it.....

I got this pin from Pinitration and you wouldn't know it's ever been played before and looks it came right out of the box..my WPT from Brannon looks almost as good too...

Those that have it, the call outs and old 90's players really bring me back and I wish someone would make an updated version of the teams and player software...that would be cool

I really like it. I've had it for one week now, and my high score has been 136.

I'm starting to get in touch with the rules, and I suspect I'll be winning a ring soon..

#3 7 years ago

I'm currently shopping 2 of these for a local operator.

I find the game quite fun - has that "just one more game" feeling when a game is over.

Remember to try the midnight mode!

Dont like the exit from below the pop-bumpers - results in a drain too often!

#4 7 years ago

First night I had it I waited up for Midnight Madness mode...

I was too drunk to fully appreciate it, but I did play through it, and even in my altered state, I thought it was pretty cool...

Haven't seen the midnight mode? What the heck is it!

That's really good, I've got about a dozen games on it, my kids are hogging it, and 85 is my high score so far...

Start a game around midnight. Lose the first ball after midnight, and the next ball will start a 'midnight madness' multiball round...

Seems to be a Gomez specialty...

Just set the time and play the game around midnight, and you'll see!
(Or set the time 2 minutes before midnight and start a game)

I didn't know it had the Midnight Madness mode when I bought it and one of my first games on it happened to be at midnight so it was a pleasant surprise.
I nudge the machine to the right just as the ball drops out of the pops. Problem is when the ball comes out of their too fast to nudge.

Great family game, just got it a couple of weeks ago too for the kids. A surprise feature for us was that the game keeps the high score for each team (29 total). This results in the kids trying to own all their favorite teams and really try to get their initials up on the list. With so many teams, there is more opportunity to "get your initials into the game". The boys are always checking to see if someone took one of their teams. With us living in Indiana, the Pacers is the most coveted team.

Lots of fun. I too have been trying to adjust something so the exit from the pops is not a drain. We have been averaging about 50 pts per game and have a top score of 125.

I know, the kids love this, one of my daughters is out there right now trying to set the high score on different teams, I know she is serious when she pulls up the bar stool and takes a seat to play!

We miss the RS, but having a new game has been fun.

Thanks!

NBAFB is completely underrated. Should be a top 100 pin.

Put some beer foam on the left side of the exit from the pops, right under the bottom pop bumper on the ball guide, it makes a world of difference! See placement here:

Hmm. I'll have to try this. Thanks for the tip.

As a beer lover what is "beer foam".....the only kind I know is from a beer tap!

#20 7 years ago

Wow, ok something for me to shoot for now! Nice job....I do have an advantage over my kids because I can add 10 points for getting all those trivia questions right, haven't stumped me yet...

It's funny to see Jason Kidd in a Suns uniform, Detlef Schrempf, Penny Hardaway on the trans lite....great call outs for me too
