Solid score Crakkers. Have you made the figure 8 shot?  It has eluded me soo far. I think this might be a aboard reproduction so I’d assume you already had this game.

Yep, this one is a fairly recent addition to my Bord collection, so I haven't played it much yet. I haven't actually read the rules, so I'm not sure what the figure 8 shot is..... though I could've got it without knowing what I was doing! I love those "last chance" flippers at the bottom - they're a really nice touch.

The figure 8 shot is made off the bottom flippers. The ball literally traverses the the table in a figure 8. I like the concept of collecting stuff while three bad pink dudes are trying to steal it and you have to keep them at bay. 😁I really like how Bord lights his tables. I wonder if he is related to the Bord name associated with some pinball games coming out of Chicago? You know a long term family connection.

2,189,280 I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but really dig this game because of the flipper configuration. Managed the figure 8 shot and lit the 3 pink villains for the extra ball (not sure if I got it. ) they must have recorded the sounds backwards. 😆 The raspberry QBert blows at the end of the attract is crack up. Only thing I’d like would be a bit more response to a nudge.

Weird game.  For some reason I have to upload all of my pictures upside down to get them to show the right way up on this forum.  Was never like that before!

I just noticed in the first post that this is a 5 ball game. Mine is 3 balls by default. The score I posted is also a 3 ball score. What about the rest of you, are all your scores 3 ball scores too?

I just read the first post again and it says 3 balls.  Am I going crazy or did you change it RusstyT?

Im a bit young to be losing the marbles!!

No mate. You are sharp as ever. I changed it. 😁 writing and spelling are a bit tricky for me and it’s not uncommon that I miss spell or don’t read what I write properly. It’s good you pointed out the issue. It’s an ongoing family joke that the spelling police have to correct me. By the way I like your approach to practice shots critical to a game.  Your in stellar form and It’s funny how much I want to win this quirky game. I got to 1,600,000ish last night. Who knows? Crakkers might storm us on his late night beer run. 😂

About that upside down screen for your pics. That’s weird. And I don’t have that issue. You could try copy and paste instead of add file. I do that for the 1st post picture. 

Also was the soprano games different to the version you had?

1,563,690.....a crappy little upgrade.

Still a good game crackers.  have you worked out the extra ball   I think you have to nail the pink villain while it’s on the no 1 light for the villain to light the pink villain icon. If anyone knows I’d like to know.  in my best game I worked out that if I slapped the side of the table in the direction the ball was going it stops the ball centre draining . Otherwise the table is very unresponsive to a nudge. Also I worked on the opening shot to get get the top rollover to get 20 k bonus lit.  It’s very handy  opening shot.

I haven't managed to get the extra ball yet, but I've got that opening shot sussed. I reckon I get it maybe 8 times out of 10

Game 6 is now closed &  RusstyT got his wish to be the big raspberry blower ahead of Legin 2nd who set a very high bench mark in a world of weirdness and what on earth is going on in this game. 😁 Crakkers  ran out of beer to finish 3rd with notable control of the opening shot. 8 out of 10 hits for the opening shot is impressive. To all who participated thank you for making this a fun game to be part of
