    Drainsplosion:
    When 3 or more balls collide during multiball and all of them go directly to a drain.

    #18 4 years ago

    Deplungesion:
    When you score less than the score of a player whose ball was being plunged off.

    That word isn't the smoothest, though, so maybe someone else can think of something better.

    Around me we call that the "Crook Drain", but I'm sure someone out there could come up with something more clever.

    Quoted from FunWithBonus:

    Is that inspired by someone named "Crook" to whom this happens often?
    OH WAIT! You mean the crook of your arm? That's not bad.

    Yup, because it hits the "crook" between the flipper and the guide.

    That might be able to get a catchy nickname, like "getting crooked".

    Quoted from atariaction:

    Commentating drain: when you are too busy commentating your own game play (often bragging about something ) that you lose control and drain.
    Back seat driver commentating drain: when your friend that is watching you play is commentating on your game play and causes you to lose the ball.

    Inspired me to think of the Dot Draintrix, when you think you have the ball trapped and look up at the DMD, just to find out that the ball wasn't entirely under control and rolls off the flipper and drains.
