I’m thinking about adding some EMs to my collection & I’m wondering whether add a ball machines can be used for tourneys? There’s an add a ball version of Lucky Strike up for sale here in Aus (Williams 1965) and it’s a machine I like a lot. Can the extra balls be turned off on these machines?
I have used add-a-ball games in tournaments and I think they can be really fun, as long as they aren’t setup too easy. I’d say go for it.
@echa uses a Melody for most of her tournaments at the location where the game is at. It has mini flippers so games are short even if you gets many added balls. I agree that Greg that if the games are not setup easy these games are fun and add something different
And if you decide to go with add-a-ball (I think you should!) make sure players are aware that they are able to play extra balls on it, in case they’re used to plunging their EBs.
Thanks, I’ll be taking the plunge thanks to your comments.
