Thread: Just a pinball virgin looking for advice

    Default Just a pinball virgin looking for advice

    Hey there. I've never played pinball seriously, but I took a look at this game on Steam after reading a glowing review of the new Star Wars tables and I've gotten into it very quickly. I've already dropped about $40 and anticipate spending a lot more. It's very compelling, but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what exactly I'm supposed to be doing.

    I know the game has guides to the tables and that even the tables themselves give you instructions, but I'm encountering a lot of terminology I don't understand and there is still a lot that is left unexplained. When a specific item on the table is it, I usually don't know what it means. The feedback I get from the table seems simultaneously vague and overwhelming. I imagine that this mostly has to do with my inexperience, or maybe I'm just dense.

    Can anyone give me some pointers? I'm trying to learn the Spider-Man table, if that makes any difference.

    This site has a good list of the pinball terminology.

    I used to be very active on the forums but recently life has caught up with me so now I just occasionally pop in to take a look. Anyway, back in the day I had a lot to say and ended up pulling it all together in one thread:

    I have some suggestions for new players in there. Hope it helps and good luck with the game... it is still stealing using up loads of my time.
