Who plays one player on a multi-player? You have to excercise the reels! If playing alone I always put 2-4 players up. Then I take the low scorer after the third ball, and now that players me, the underdog! Fighting for the big comeback!
*Snow Derby/Queen is a blast imo with one or two player. Getting on a roll with those spinners and 2" flippers isn't easy. Very satisfying when you get there.
