    I think I'm done with my efforts to improve my Jaws score. I can't do more than 35-40 million now. What a tough table.

    I can see our friendship beginning to sour Mr Zoo! This is not on!

    Im counting down the clock to finally be singe with this Jaws table. I absolutely loath it. I can see what they were going for, but it is void of entertainment and winds me up. I can't beat my 25 million. I'm still hitting the immediate brick wall presented to me when I first stated playing it.

    Tomorrow night I will dig out my old Jaws VHS, set it on fire and throw it out the living room window into the dirty street below, where it'll be run over by that annoying man who rides his annoyingly loud bike up and down our street 4 times a night. I officially hate Jaws.

    I may just go to the aquarium and punch a shark!

    Hope you don't mind me joining in! Used to play FX2 quite a lot, but had forgotten all about this. Nice to see that all purchased tables are transfering over on Steam.

    I concur that Jaws is well hard. Should be, really! Bob's Burgers is really nice so I hope you join us for that one next week.

    You've still got some better scores than me. I just can't beat your El Dorado score, and not for want of trying.

    I currently have 1 billion points in Sorceror's Lair. Started yesterday and had to pause it to go to bed, did the same today and will have to continue tomorrow night. I must have gotten 5 extra balls. I'm getting a bit bored of it tbh!

    I ended up with 1.3 billion on Sorceror's Lair. I basically completed it 4 times.

    @rice_sandwich That is a super commitment. Well played. Ill have another stab at it sometime, but I know how long that would have taken!

    Ive downloaded the Fox TV pack, so I'm ready to jump in to the next tournament.

    About 80-90 minutes maybe. I only played for 10 minutes when I got home and soon got a game over. You can get 250 million from a decent Midnight Madness.

    I'll kick off the third tournament on Monday so you have the weekend to practice. I reckon Jono will take the honours though.

    Just scored 116 million on Bob's Burgers, not that the leaderboard wants to update, so I may have to screen capture that one.

    It seems like a decent table. Much, much better than Jaws. However, my run came from one ball that just didn't want to go out of play. It always makes me suspicious when that happens. Especially when all my other games, including 2 35 million runs, were over in minutes. It felt like a quick play table up until then.

    Good score. I'm well off the pace. I can only manage 40 million or so.

    Anyone having trouble connecting online? I can't see any friend scores or the last tournament result.

    Well my Superhub died yesterday, so I've no internet until Wednesday, earliest. :/

    Edit - I think the servers went funny on Friday night. It never posted my Bob's Burger score.

    Might be an influx of users after the Steam sale?

    Must be, I can't see the score boards either.

    Also, I bought way more tables than I should have in the sale. Really enjoying the Aliens-themed ones.

    Pretty nice table! I haven't seen the show so I wasn't that keen on it at first but it's growing on me.

    ...and rice_sandwich taking a comfortable lead again! (I'm mrWizard on Steam )

    Hoping my Superhub is replaced before the deadline. I'm practicing offline until then. Good luck, all!

    @DangerousDave_87

    If you can do more than 50 million you'll probably beat me. The ball goes out so easily on the left and right drains and nudging doesn't help much.

    edit:

    You can always post a screenshot if you don't manage to get back online in time.

    I've just managed to beat your score, Rice. Always feel I'm about to get a massive score, then balls 2 and 3 sink quickly. Was getting around the 49 million mark everytime which meant one more go! It's way past my bedtime.

    Well done. I don't see myself doing too well on this one but I'll keep trying.

    I do like the table, but it can be infuriating. Night time is great!

    @Jono62

    Is night time triggered by the player or the game? The guide suggested its player triggered but I can't see how.

    @rice_sandwich It's both. You can wait for it to happen in game or you press the launch button for 3 seconds and it changes.
