Six Sticks is a game that wasn't made in great quantities and is difficult to find now.

The Pros:
A great asymmetrical PF design that makes you shoot all around the deck. Learning how to hit the 1-2-3 Blue mushroom bumper in sequence is what this game is all about. The kicker lane on the left propels the ball to the top of the PF from your left lane, if you ball goes out, you are awarded a special! Hmmm... an extra ball or a free game? What do I want?

The Cons:
Ball times are painfully short. A six player, 5 ball game may last an entire 2 minutes. The gameplay is absolutely linear for good scores. Zipper flippers would have been PERFECT on this game. They just hadn't been invented yet. No chimes. Was this just the deck I played?

The Takeaway:
A peek into the lopsided designs that were to come commonplace for Bally from this point on. Getting the balance right between challenging and punishing is not an easy thing to do. This game leans more towards the punishing side of pinball game personalities. Very simple, very hard!
