@markmon maybe you can try to set the playfield steeper if you feel like the ball takes forever going down.

good EMs are fun to play, and as posted numerous times require a different skillset.
28 here, so i never saw them on location
i dig the art ( think canadadry, abracadabra, etc )
parallel with cars is spot on i think. you get the "classic" feel

try playing a 60s against someone who knows what he is at, you 'll feel the pain of seeing your ball going down the drain making 10 pts whereas his just racks up as he nudges and hit the thing.

disclaimer ** if you want to enjoy Ems don't play them after playing a DMD.**

should try 70s it's not so different from what you can be used to on DMDs
60s is somethin else
to each their own...but i like all of 'em

I mean , it's written on the freaking thing : "a game of SKILL" "It's more fun to compete"
that says it all

if anyone wants to give me his fireball please do i'll probably find some space left in the house ^^
