    I find I constantly am in a state of nudging frenzy to keep the ball out of the two side of flipper drains and also rebounding off the flippers center post on North Star. It's not Peloton by any means but for me there is no close 2nd machine I've played. Got me to wondering what pin others might see in a similar way?

    Top Card. Typical game lasts about 15 minutes plus it’s a joy to play.

    Central Park is a nudging workout that leaves your palms with indents from the lockdown bar. I have a sample Ice Revue that has a similar playfield to Ice Show. It's impossible to not shake that machine!

    Very nice! Fills the bill for me. North Star has a green and a yellow rollover one each almost directly above the flipper drain rollovers. I'm shaking the bejeeze out of the game as the ball even gets close as it constantly does. Anything to encourage the ball to contact the slingshot! If there's a heavenly ledger of swear word accounting I'm on the edge due to this infuriating fall of the ball. Haven't played either Top Card or Ice Revue. Need to do so.

    Revenge from mars. You ever try to lift that damn thing?

    If it's nudging you want, there is no game that demands it more than Majorettes!!

    agree 100% there is no other game that requires nudging more than majorettes, slick chick a distant 2nd

    I've got a Slick Chick next to North Star. My money's on NS.

    Good game on Deadpool is half an hour, good game on the Hobbit is double that. Deadpool makes me sweat like crazy on a good game, Hobbit makes my heart thump.

    Edit, sorry this came up in my feed and i didn't see it was in an EM section.

    Agreed on Majorettes. So much so I put a mid 70's lockdown bar on mine so as not to kill the palms of my hands.

    Possibly even more of a nudge monster is Big Casino with three outlanes between the flippers that has you nudging constantly.

    My biggest excercise is my footwork. Somehow I mentally think I can direct the ball by kicking one leg behind another as I’m playing any pin, and I try not to get twisted into a knot.

    I had a North Star..she was a good nudger. Currently, it’s my royal guard. I like to give her a nudge once the ball hits the big slings as well..

    At a show years ago they had a Majorettes on the floor, it was very nice and playable because the tilt was correctly set, then they removed it for awhile to be a
    tournament game, when they brought it back it was unplayable, they had set the tilt so tight for the tourney that you could barely touch it without tilting, nudging was non-existant. Always bothers me when you get these older games set up poorly at shows, people tyr to play them and are given a very bad impression.

    And Slick Chick is definitely up there in the workout department!!

    Bowling queen for me. I've only ever got all the balls down in the head once!
    And I like North Stars centre roll over for special, being set amongst those pop bumpers gives the knocker a workout if nothing else!
