Some schmoe installed posts like that in the Mystic I bought. I removed them and can still roll the game.

Training wheels, that's what these posts are... training wheels

Quoted from itshowtime:

I guess I should take these training wheels off my Star Trek that came from the factory already installed on it ...I don't get what the problem is ...if it makes the game more enjoyable to play for my family and I. .that's all that matters

By all means, do what you want to your game, but you're not playing it as the designer intended. You are making it easier than it should be, hence the training wheel comment.

ST has posts because it is designed as a longer playing game. 18 missions. 3 wizard modes. Long ball times needed. Steve knew that so he put the posts there, even on the kickback lane. Borg wanted TWD to be a quicker game like IM, so more brutal outlanes.

Learning to shoot and nudge to keep the ball away from the left outlane area is more satisfying for most people than designing add-on posts, but whatever floats your boat...

Quoted from Breadfan:

Hmm. I talked to Steve Ritchie about me adding star posts to my AC/DC BIB & he said "I don't blame ya"so what's that say about how the designer intended?

I think that Steve truly did not blame you for making the game more enjoyable for you and your guests.

I think that if Steve intended star posts to be on ACDC BIB it would have shipped with them installed.

BBH is especially brutal; the deer will occasionally escort the ball straight down the left outlane for you.
