All right, just like Matt Damon said about poker in Rounders, pinballers remember with excruciating detail all the bad beats they got over Pinburgh weekend and never the really good things that happened.
So, let’s hear your happy stories, keeping in mind with each happy story there is an unhappy story. Here are some of mine:
- Grinding out 2.9M after starting with 500K on ball 3 of Banzai Run. Not enough to catch @FunWithBonus and his 4.9M, but enough for 2nd without a working Cliff Jump that broke during Steve’s ball.
- Lucky bonus break on the very last game of qualifying. It didn’t really matter other than which group we wound up in, but I ended up beating Jorian by 4K on a 9M+ game of WOF.
- Personal best games that I remember being solidly happy with were 3M+ on Sorceror and 5.5M on HS. Any other game I won was probably more relief than happiness.
A happy memory for someone else, watching Jorian grind out 38M on Radical! was just absolutely nuts. Completely had that game nailed.
