Re: Ottawa Show: list of games

The rules for Rolling Stones? Easy... 1- Spell ROCK with the lanes up top to get 2X, 3X and 5X multiplier. Also, the center target will light one of the ROCK letters when lit. When it isn't, just hit any 10pt switch (like a slingshot) to light it. 2- Hit targets 1 and 2 (upper left), 3 and 4 (upper ...

How far in advance do tournament games get revealed in advance? I will def try and lookup some basic rules this time, even if that means at 10am on the Saturday. :) We will announce a few days before the show what the machines will be. Don't worry. ;) Ideally, we want at least 6 machines... I would...

then the advantage goes to whomever has played it before, especially if they've owned the title. Not really true at all. Maybe a slight advantage in rules knowledge, but nothing that can't be learned in half an hour watching videos / reading rule sets. As you play more tournaments, you will see tha...

Murrsky lives in Greely. Judging by what I see when I go there, the place looks loaded with rednecks. You could probably shoot in his backyard and the neighbors would probably run out to join you. LOL
