4 Queens has that one more game quality that is hard to define. For such a simple layout I find myself trying to play it different ways to bump that score up and get more queens. The T-Rex flippers may be tiny but when well tuned deliver a wicked backhand sending the ball back to the saucer for a lit "Spot a letter" or to the lanes if you are not.

The combo of the slings are the Zipper-Flipper releases right above them make side to side motion almost certain death and a feeling of satisfaction if you live.

A "Zipper Flipper" EM. 4 Queens is a challenging game that can certainly be taken advantage of is the playfield conditions are setup to do so. Once you get the flippers zipped, being able to reliably and consistently put the ball back into the center hole is the key to big scores.

Beware of the HUGE outlanes on the game; anything to the left or right basically gets vacuumed out and drained with no remorse.

4 Queens is a great example of what you can do with zipper flippers and a challenging layout/ruleset.

The Pros:
This game is HARD. I played it a dozen times and never got more than 2 out of the 4 queens lit. Completing the 4 queens is a real pinball challenge. The A-B-C-D sequence requires shots to be made all over the PF. Hitting the saucer when the insert is lit will help you out quite a bit. The Christian Marche art package is awesome all around!

The Cons:
Randomness and big points from the center saucer mean that this game can definitely "luck you" for better or for worse. The trick with this is not only this is where the table's biggest points are, but it also activates the zipper flippers! The targets on either side of the saucer are death shots

The Takeaway:
Find a nice one if you can and play away. Expect many frustrating moments that will keep you coming back for more. What can I say? I like hard games.

This game still makes me look silly with a high frequency. Humbling and hungry outlanes keep game times as short as they can be. Operators must have loved it, until the players didn't.
