    What's the opinion on using a power ball? Is it noticable in play and worth the money? Got joker poker at almost 7°, like it to be faster

    #2 3 months ago

    I have a power ball in Centigrade 37 and have tried it in a few other games such as Paragon. It definitely changes the game play and makes things interesting on an old familiar game. Not a ton, but enough to change up the shots just a little bit and make the game faster too. For Centigrade 37 it makes the game tougher. I haven't kept stats but it sure seems to keep my scores down a little. I was thinking about moving it to another game. My Joker Poker is hard enough already! I might try Volley.

    All of those games have their own power balls. We love fast and furious.

    What is a power ball? Besides the lottery, haha. Is it a lighter ball?

    Ceramic ball.
    Most notably used in Twilight Zone.
    Lighter and plays faster.

    Have one in Tag Team and occasionally throw one in TNA

    i have them in a few of my old games and it makes them more challenging. i used to have them in all my old games but my problem is people liked them when they played my games and i gave them away. i still have them in 8 ball deluxe and superman - i keep meaning to buy more and this time not give them away.

    it's worth the money

    #16 3 months ago

    Do they last as long or longer than standard ones?

    #17 3 months ago

    That's great. Guess I'll b ordering a few

    I bought one from pinball life and what a difference it made in jp. Plus it looks so dang cool. Steel ball weighs 81 gm, super ball 62, so almost 25% lighter, or 2.2 oz compared to 2.8 oz
