The ball hanging in the bar entry is a frequent occurrence on my OK, NIB in June, and is easily resolved by a firm bump or two. Gets a tilt warning but that beats waiting for the programmed door closure designed to resolve this specific hang up. The only down side is the ball has NEVER dropped back into the bar for a stein choice. It always pops back out onto the playing surface requiring me to utilize my three flippers and limited German vocabulary to earn that elusive stein! Prost!
