Man, this team play feature is so cool! I can see it being useful in party settings too. Occasionally a group of our pinball friends will gather at someone's house and we'll have a "Wife Swap Tournament." Basically, we divide into male/female teams, but you can't be on the same team as your significant other. I can see this working well in that environment, as you're both accomplishing goals together. Also, my wife and I have cooperative games we'll play (mostly board games) when we don't feel like being competitive. I can see this working well in a couple's home environment too (just two people on a single team) playing a cooperative game of pinball! Man...I love it.
Keep it comin', Gerry!
