Interesting. I usually don't give R&W games a second glance, but this sounds like it might deserve one.

I probably haven't played pinball since my teens, but this review made me feel like tracking down a local pinball machine. This does sound like a clever game design, but playing probably pales in comparison to actually playing a pinball machine. Back in the day, my two favorite pinball machines were XENON and Black Knight.

XENON:



Black Knight:

I bought this one at an estate sale. Did it work? Guy said it did but he flat-out lied. Fixed it myself for big handyman cred.



My brother checked, "Owns Eight-Ball Deluxe" off his bucket list.

It seems so counterintuitive that the weird kinetic pantheism of a pinball table could be translated to anything as static as a boardgame, but if you say so I think I need to check it out.

My favourite table has got to be Tales of the Arabian Nights. The only pin I've ever triggered end-game on. And that sultry narration? Phwoar.

I used to play Black Knight at a 7-11 in Parlier, CA. The night clerk was a black dude named Fred. We called him the Black Knight. He was mostly glad for the company and sometimes comped us free Slurpees.

Soccer, Firepower III, High Speed, Earthshaker. I still love pinball.

If the concept is sound you could sell dozens of different machine renditions for this, mock ups of old or entirely new.

Does each play have a theoretical limit in score? Do the targets pop back up when you clear the set or are they one and done? At some point it would seem you’d run out of goals to go after.

Don't forget-- Mr. Engelstein offered a sample pdf of one of the boards to try for free. I had a lot of fun with it.

There are actually two out of the four tables available now as a PNP from Wizkids website.

To answer Sag's questions, there is not theoretical maximum high score. You can bounce around the bumpers forever, although it becomes increasing unlikely.

Targets are grouped into 'Sets'. When a set is completed, you erase them all and typically get a bonus of some type.
