    Great table, just beat the final scene and look forward to improving my score

    Here's the Wizard Mode if anyone's interested:
    That's great man.
    Nice save at around 1:25.
    I can never manage saves like that during wizard mode. Especially with 2 other balls at the flippers.
    Thanks for posting.

    You look to be an experienced player, so I need to ask: is the semi-frantic flipper hitting during wizard mode the best strategy during a multiball like that, or is there method to the madness that I'm not seeing? I tend to choke when I have a multiball. Most of the time the balls just hit in-between lanes a lot and I feel I'm not utilizing by bonus time enough.

    The flame thrower trooper is hilarious in my opinion

    That's quite impressive.
    Very carefully. Like not ch checking back here until I saw the movie. Saw it last night. Loved it. Funny thing though, my main motivation for going last night was that I really wanted to play the new tables.

    BTW, I was the only one in the theatre. Must not be a very popular movie.

    I know it looks like flipper spamming but I was playing each ball as best I could, when there's that many balls round the flippers the flippers do need to be used A LOT! There are some multiballs where it's best to go for controlled shots, even cradling a ball or 2 on 1 flipper while hitting accurate shots with the other. This MB doesn't really require that though.

    My advice would be to watch some videos, TY-24 is a master at big scores during MB and has some great vids on his channel on YouTube.

    Have fun!

    Thanks! Good to know that this is more of "shoot first" kind of multiball despite having some control too.

    Just for info- I think to win mission 12 the wizard Multiball - u need like 25-30 shots down lit lanes and u CAN lose the Multiball and still win with just 1 ball left. I got there and down to 2 shots for the win. Lost Multiball but mode continued finished off last 2 shots with 1 ball.

    This is a very forgiving table.

    I've liked American Dad for this aspect as well, since you can reach Wizard mode without actually "winning" the missions the first time around.

    Default New update for star wars on Fire TV - Game doesn't start

    Been waiting for Amazon to get the update for the new Star Wars tables but now when I run the Zen Pinball app it just starts and then closes straight away. I Don't even see the table menu. Tried uninstalling and re-installing but it still does the same thing.

    Yes, the balls only multiply the millions for a hit so they worth to be kept in game

    We've submitted a fix for it, so as soon as Amazon approves it, it will be released

    Are you still having this issue on Mac today? Let me know if the shopping cart icon or clicking the table icon still doesn't work.

    Here's the first of 2 Skill shots on Star Wars™ Pinball: Might of the First Order table:

    Launch the ball with the right power to hit the Tractor Beam magnet at the back of the playfield for 3 million, then hit the left ramp off the top right flipper straightaway for a further 6 million and a Double Super Skill Shot.

    ...and here's another

    Secret Skill Shot from Ty-24, you get 8 seconds to make a decision: the choices alternate each time you move your flipper between a points reward (I've seen as much as 3 million and as little as a single point lol!) or light one of the modes (very handy, especially if you get Ability Test!)

    As a little tip I've found that the best way to get the correct power is to ignore the launch ball area and the Tie Fighter which moves up and down. Instead, look at the left of the screen and pull the plunger back until the tops of the Docking Bay (where you lock balls for Pushing the Frontiers) are just visible. Then hit that left ramp!




    Love these skill shots!

    Wow nice find! That ability test mode is my kryptonite. It is the only mode that keeps me for Master the Universe.

    Great table. My favorite of the 2. Not to say the Force awakens is dull or anything one of deep's best but I love the fact that you have to control where your shots go in MB. You have to learn how the hold a ball (or 2) on a flipper release and shoot for the jackpots, which are pretty high when your start raising the jackpots.

    The only gripe I have (and It's minor and still distracting) is the differentiation of the balls in the lower field and the upper field. I can't even tell which ball is the lower field. Is there any possible way that you can light it up somehow like Black hole in TPA?

    I manged to get 4 of the 5 extra balls possible.

    Just got a PS4 as an early birthday present and the first thing I did was import my pinball tables. I thought Star Wars pinball looked fantastic already on my PlayStation Vita but they look amazing on PS4! The clarity and definition is fantastic.

    Thanks . My actual birthday is still a week away, but my wife wanted it to be completely unexpected (mission:accomplished). Might add some more tables with the 20% off code I got in the PS4, although it's hard for me to part from The Force Awakens table, I love it so much.

    I'm a fan of this universe, films, and games. Waiting for the new chapter on the 2020 year. But this game is disappointed me(
