    The game of the week for March 3-9 is Pirates of the Caribbean.   It was chosen by Scotty VH, since Bob Albright won the previous week’s GOTW.  Please play on the latest version (1.1) from Sliderpoint available on VPinball.com.

    To keep the “playfield even” for people with different amounts of time to play, there is a 50 game per week limit.

    Please post your scores this week by replying to this post.

    I have a couple games to play to reach the 20, but I’ll post this now, because I doubt that I will improve upon it.

    Good question, Bob.  I had to drop off for a few weeks, and it looks like the new posts didn’t quite happen.  I’m happy to restart it, but this shows that we really do need a self-sustaining method for this to continue without requiring a single administrator (me) to make a new post every Sunday morning.  Any ideas??

    Over at VPF we used to manage it on our own, but, that thread died out eventually. I personally love to compete playing pinball. But, when ever anyone beats me I keep wondering if they are playing like @wob76 trying to catch as many frames as possible from the game for the color creators or something else. I’m really a bad looser to be perfectly honest, for some odd reason, more so when it comes to pinball than anything else :wacko: I enjoy seeing what scores the other guys are at and if they beat me, I shrug it off by telling myself that they cheated or doesn’t have the tilt bob adjusted well enough yet. :whistle:   In short, I would would miss it if it isn’t continued, but, if we are not enough people caring/participating to be able to administer it ourselves, then you surely should not have to keep it up. That is my opinion on the matter.

    Oh yes. I almost forgot. There is one thing that has been great with you being the admin. You’ve had me laughing more than a few times being as the head admin and decision maker. :good:

    @thalamus I think that was a complement 😂 I can play like that when not doing dumps ;) I must say I’ve tried to get my tilt realistic (just via analogue nudge as I don’t have a tilt bob yet), but it’s still a little more generous than my real pin.

    I was doing some comps, not this one in particular, when I am motivated they are great fun and push you gameplay, I get super frustrated at older tables :)

    Yes. It was meant as a compliment but, also as an example to why gameplay can’t be fair from install to install. I can’t move the ball at all by buttons. And my tilt bob is very sensitive. Small shake and I’m done for. And btw. I once again want to thank you for the huge effort you’ve put down in getting as many scenes as possible out of these games. :rose:

    I’m sure I could automate this somehow but I would miss the witty comments but Scottyvh.  But I do understand it’s work :(

    I love these comps.. love playing new games and learning more about the rules of each one. It’s just a busy time of year for me. Older kid playing softball about everynight. Spring time means yard work, garden prep and outside till dark. Then younger kids bedtime routines and before you know it is 11pm..  Thank you Scotty for keeping up with it as long as you have. <!–more–>
