Blindseer - kids and nostalgic parents will go nuts over the cars and dinos. It is a good gateway drug into keeping pinball alive.
Good luck with the rental!

Quoted from Blindseer:

Had the game for two weeks and I have to say its probably the most fun game of 2020. I also purchased Wonka, Avenger and we already had TmnT. I have had a few problems that might be related to leveling and pitch. Air balls from the rpm targets, Overshooting saucers and not falling in. I have lowered the flipper coil strength by two and this seems to still be an issue. Should the game be 6 degrees? Weak plunger spring, it feels like even with a full plunge its not strong enough to go around the orbit after I save the ball on the right out lane. Is this issue resolved by flattening the game?
I am sad that this game didn't get the love it should have. I hope it does over time and hopefully as it gets rented more people enjoy it.

The air ball from the RPM targets is because the targets are too stiff and there still is too much energy hitting the RPM switches (same with the traffic lights). Try lowering flipper strength another 1 or 2. I lowered the table to factory recommended height and it has been okay. You still will get some air balls that will hit the glass but at least it won't knock over the car on the right hand side like it was doing for me (a little too much epic crashing ).

Plunging has not been a problem for me so not sure other than checking the plunger spring? Maybe the AP guys can offer suggestions on that.

More and more people are playing the game and I think it is going to have legs. It is getting the love that it should be getting - remember this is Pinside, the home of flash and sizzle and FOMO on the griddle so the next big thing knocks attention down the line. In the real world we will see what's what.
