    No one-handed death saves? Tut tut!

    Anyway, you gotta love how fickle pinball is. Total domination with the first ball, then a quick succession of disasters.

    That 100K standup is one satisfying light to have flashing. It indicates a strong ball.

    Just recently sold my Whirlwind. Shame on me. Awesome game.

    BTW, Whirlwind rolls at 100M.

    Whirlwind’s display rolls at 100M, but the game’s memory knows what the total score is, and will record the score on the high score table correctly.

    What, no three way combo? 😉

    I was hoping to see you pull off three or four of them, I love to hear that siren.

    Hey Bowen, my wife and I just played this machine at Pinball Wizard in Pelham, NH and we saw your initials on it with the high score! Awesome!
