    Anyone played the Episode I pinball game? I think it sucks. It's got a Jar Jar action figure in it as well as one of those really crappy dot matrix displays. Plus, it costs $.50 to play, what a rip-off.

    Discuss.

    game over

    Never played it. I hate pinball because I suck at it.

    Next order of business: thinking of sexual connotations dealing with pinball.

    I got 50 pionts for getting it in the hole. Does that help?

    Pinball is hard. I can never get the balls through the shaft. It's too long and the balls are too big. You need to bang on the thing hard to get them to shoot of the shaft. Eventually though, if you put enough thrust into it, they'll go shooting out and thats when it gets fun.

    Yeah, but $.50?! That's bull! I usually just get a cheap $.25 one and go to town on it, regardless of what it looks like. I get my points one way or another.

    Well you can get some for cheaper if you know where to look. Of course they're a little older and don't respond well enough and you have to give them a good bang to get them work and if the thing gets stuck on something.

    Not to knock the older ones, but when I play them my hands just get so greasy I need to bathe.

    You get what you pay for, really. The more expensive ones respond so much better to my subtle touches, I hardly get response out of the cheap ones. They're just no fun.

    Yeah, you can tell when they've been used a little too much.

    But doesn't experience count for anything?

    Think of it as a bell curve. You've got the brand new ones at one end, which aren't really good because they're stiff and not used to being played, then the ones with some experience in the middle, which are the best because they've loosened up a little but they're still high quality, then the older ones, which are cheap but don't give the same level of satisfaction.

    You also see the wear and tear in them when the slot where you put your money's worth is too wide and it has problems accepting your coins. A pity, really.

    MY coins always go in smoothly. Maybe it's you with the problem, Dan.

    You have to use the right size coins, a lot of pinball machines won't even recognise coins that are too small.

    NOW NOW THERES NOTHING WRONG WITH A SMALL COIN! ALL COINS ARE WORTH SOMETHING!

    Yes, but generally, bigger coins are worth more. You get more bang for your buck, so to speak.

    Is that why it's called the Kennedy half-dollar?


    Wait... what does that say about Sacagawea?!

    Honestly, it usually comes down to how you put the coins in the slot. Sure, sometimes it won't accept irregularly shaped coins, but sometimes you have to play around with it some before hand. Maybe stick your finger in the coin hole, jiggle it around some, perhaps but the coins in on an angle, you know what I mean.

    WELL EVEN A PENNY CAN GO A LONG WAY IF USED WELL ENOUGH.

    Sad thing is, most machines won't even give a penny a second look these days.

    And yes Dan, those kinds of pinball warm-ups and variations are all well and good, but they still can't come close to playing an actualy round of the classic game.

    But you can't argue against the fact that bigger coins give you more playtime.
