      What an annoying pinball game! You hit a bunch of stuff and your score is crap low. I haven't gotten to 25,000,00 to get a free game yet but I keep hitting things, going up ramps, etc. and the score is so damn low. I think my high is around 12,000,000.

          Yeah, I'm in the same boat with this one........and it's that one sitting on the sand down by the lagoon with two bloody great holes in its side!

              I'll have a game at some stage later and see if I can give you a strategy.... it's something like collect all the stuff, hit the ramp and collect a jackpot.

                I was browsing through my tables and thought how apt for our current situation, I could not resist submitting it. Just think, the highest of low scoring wins 100 points

                  trust MrB to nominate something obscure ! i didn't even know this table existed.

                  but it's possibly because of the sweet memory of Ginger from Gilligan's Island...

                  You've just laid out the strategy for most DMD games

                    Sounds interesting... how do we decide whats the highest of the low?

                      I first played this at Pinfest a couple of years ago with my wife and quite enjoyed it. The VPX version is really nice, but the rules lack any depth. Still..... it's a bit of fun.

                        Same scoring system but since it seems a mean game on first play, our perceived scores might be lower than what we want.

                            71,932,850 - I've managed to get the big jackpot twice now......... unfortunately in two different games. The first jackpot game score was 71,182,760, so this is another contender for "least improved".
