I’m going to just combine most of these into one post, with light commentary about the noteworthy games. Because if you’ve been by Poison Girl and/or looked at the Facebook page, you’ve seen evidence of a noteworthy game (or three) on Whirlwind.
But, first things first. February 15, Poison Girl. Nothing really noteworthy, decent scores but I wouldn’t count on this level of play to win a tournament.
February 20, Poison Girl. The first of many high scores on Whirlwind. 25.9M+ is up in the range of tournament worthy, though keep in mind true tournament games would be played without extra balls. Either way, I feel this was an accomplishment.
February 21, Continental Club. Not a whole lot to comment on here, as this was just me playing BurgerTime. I was never that great at this game but I am slowly improving.
February 22, Big Top Lounge. Just a quick game each of Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man.
February 27, Poison Girl. Not a whole lot out of the ordinary but the score on Iron Maiden is pretty nice.
March 6, Poison Girl. Finally we get to a true highlight, a personal best on Whirlwind that will probably stay on top for a good long while. This game was the first time I have ever maxed out the skyway tolls (you get a nice “Skyway Paid For / 200,000” display and a unique sound effect for each ramp shot). At least three (full) multiballs, at least a couple of quick multballs, and two Super Door bonuses.
March 13, Poison Girl. High scores on both Wheel of Fortune and Whirlwind. This particular high score is noteworthy for being the first time I have ever made multiple Million Plus shots in one multiball. I just squeaked by JNM’s score once again to push him/her down to third.
There will be two more posts about events/outings before Texas Pinball Festival. The following post to go live tomorrow will be about how to follow my progress at that event.
