    Stern epic/stern ˈepik/adjective/noun:

    An ambiguous advertising descriptive term designed to generate substantial amounts of additional income from non-informed consumers for a separate product, event, or service without possibility of refund prior to actual reveal that has has the same quality of other nearly identical items in the same category. The term may further be identified for confirmation when a product pre-production number is increased without justification prior to actual construction (before or after a reveal) and/or requirement for a buyer to apply for purchase and provide free marketing information to a company for future sales." Not to be confused with the term, "Epic Fail", which is a pure noun, and antonym. A "Stern Epic", is generally classified as an initial success, until initial consumers become self-aware based on information of repeated industry attempts at the same process.

    (See Stern BM66 SLE pinball machine for a qualifying example of this definition)

    Laundry Room.

    (Sorry for grainy pic, I couldn't find a clear closeup)

    It's the Future Spa version of The Beast's Lair on Paragon, but on the right side of the game. Nobody wants to be here because of the high chance of ball loss. While the Beasts Lair is dangerous, threatening and deadly, the Laundry Room is smelly, filthy and gross.

    Entering the BL will risk you being eaten alive by the lion/chicken beast on Paragon. Entering the LR is like risking your membership being cancelled from the juiced-up 70s fountain of youth called Future Spa. Stay away from here and you'll stay away from trouble!

    New Out of Box (NOoB)

    noun

    The latest replacement term for Home Use Only (HUO) by new owners when a game is attempting to sell a game with "under 200 plays". Usually, a statement of fabrication, or half truth due to removal of batteries, number of plays owner has played themselves, or prior to latest update of code in their home. Has no direct meaning of value in the market, whatsoever, similar to terms such as "mint" or "museum quality".

    "Hackmare"

    A machine in "just off route" condition fresh with all the 'repairs' performed 'in situ' that all have to be re-repaired just to get the game able to shoot, flip, drain, release 3 times.

    With all the water flow on the Future Spa playfield, I refer to a ball drain in that area as "peeing in the shower".

    Adamball

    Definition: a ball is plunged into play, hits minimal switches (sometimes none), then centre drains or drains through an outlane. This occurs after ball save has ended, and definately happens on a machine without any ball save.

    When this happens, the player at the machine calls out “Adamball” then others in on the joke echo the call out of “Adamball”. Best said in a tone similar to someone about to cannonball into a pool: “Cannon-ball”
