    This is the eighth game of 8 total games to be played in VPGL12.

    TOURNEY RULES

    - 8 games played for 2 weeks each, Games that have multiple nominations will be posted first, then the rest drawn at random from the pool of nominations.
    - VP10 version only. No user-modded tables unless purely graphical/lighting preferences. No tweaking of flipper strengths, changing table slope, etc.
    - High Score must be from game played at time of competition - ie don't post your already existing high score
    - play desktop on a PC or full screen in a vpin
    - This is an honour system and purely for fun. Submit a score by screen dump or take a pic and post in this thread. New picture for each new score please.

    Points system:

    1: 20
    2: 19
    3: 18

    and so on.

    NEW RULE: BALL 1 HERO

    Bonus point (1) for the best Ball 1 score. Take a pic at the end of Ball 1 and post at any time
    NB: the player currently leading the tournament cannot claim the Ball 1 Hero points. They can still be the Ball 1 Hero, though

    Let the flipping commence!

    I remembered this story from when this table previously came up in a VPGL as soon as I saw the randomizer spit it out.
