Quoted from Groo:
After passing it over for Star Trek, and then GOT, I'm finally getting TWD. Would love to have the Premium but budget had me settle for the Pro. Any quick tips when I get my machine or should I just pour through the forums?
Quick set up tips: Rotating the prison magnet is reported to help if you're getting SDtM drains from it often. Double flip during the animation to release the ball early. Some people use a larger rubber on the post where the ball exits the pops to avoid SDtM without effort. This also makes your Tunnel shot tougher. A timely nudge is a better solution (i.e. PLAY BETTER).

The drop target bank is crucial for big scores. Pay attention to which light is lit when you drop the first target, that's the item you'll collect for completing the bank. Collect all three items then drop the bank again for Blood Bath multi-ball. The lights strobe through all three items even if you've collected one or more already. Completing the bank on a completed item only gives progress towards lighting the "Dead Features" (modes), meaning you'll have to complete the bank an additional time before you can start Blood Bath.
Other multi-balls are Prison and Well-Walker. Starting them is pretty straighforward.
Double playfield - complete the stab targets on either side of the prison, then hit the tower by making a Riot shot.
Master the Left ramp (CDC mode) Riot shot (2x playfield) and the Woodbury shot (extra ball, Horde mode).
