Over the River

I've started playing in a new league over on the Missouri side of the river, hosted by Third Rail Bar and Grill. Not a bad change of pace, I can get dinner on location (try the Train Wreck burger, very tasty, but be hungry - it's 3/4 lb of hamburger and beef brisket!), and new players to meet and compete with is always nice...not that the old ones were bad! :p

Apparently even a change of venue isn't enough to get me out of my streak of mediocrity though - 11 points out of 20 this week. But since I've never played these particular machines before, I'll take it and run! :D

Another shock for me - these machines actually require coins to operate. (The machines at CP Pinball, my usual haunt, are all on free play.) Of course, I left my quarters at home like a noob. Thankfully management had thoughtfully provided a change machine!

What we're playing this season:

AC/DC Premium
Avengers LE (Hulk)
Playboy (Bally)
Evel Knievel
Iron Man
Mystic
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Silver Slugger
Tron Legacy LE (and no, despite having played it, I have no idea why people are paying $15,000 for this machine! - I mean, it's very nice, but not $15K nice.)
Wheel of Fortune
X-Men LE (Wolverine)

I guess I better get more practice in on modern Sterns...sigh...

I like AC/DC but it is so complicated! I need a TPA-style rule explanation which I guess would be like 500 pages long. What do you think of Avengers?

It looks like it's going to rain all weekend here, so maybe I'll take a break from the TZ and do a forum write-up for AC/DC. It won't be complete...as you say, AC/DC makes TZ look like an EM!...but I think I can explain enough that you can step up to the machine with reasonable confidence.

Avengers, like X-Men, is not growing on me, but several other players like it.
