It’s nice to see the Awesome Pinburgh Stories thread get resurrected. I had such an odd failure this year, I figured it might be interesting to hear some of the strangest things that happened to you or others in your bank.
For me, it was definitely Surf Champ. After 2 balls, had 18K and 9K in bonus built up. The ball power drains at one point and immediately goes to player 1. The game didn’t tilt, but it didn’t give me my bonus, and in fact the bonus STAYED for player 1, and the ball is in the shooter lane.
It’s almost like the ball power-drained through back into the plunger lane, and didn’t activate the outhole switch long enough for all of the logic to take place. I only even speculate this as a possibility because during 1st round finals last year on Doodle Bug, I had a case where the post was up and I was shooting at the 1 to build up the bug value. In that case, I barely hit the switch, and what happened is the post went down but it didn’t award me the “1”.
And then Hee Haw happened.
