    If you can get fairly close to completing the table you should have 150 million or so quite easily. There are many multiball and ball save opportunities.

    I haven't had a go yet, but my current high score is around 25m with various cheating bastard upgrades. I don't suppose I'll get close to a decent score, but I'll give it a shot later.

    Here's the EG Pinball Hall of Fame - all time high scores for each table. These are based on my Switch friend list so chip in if you've beaten any of these scores. A lot of my scores should be easily beatable and often no one else on my friend list has played them.

    A screenshot or verification from another user on your platform of choice would be good to secure bragging rights. Let me know about your scores for Marvel and Star Wars tables and I'll add those in. Classic mode only, please!

    I'm going backwards this evening. Another hour of attempts and I couldn't get beyond 40 million. I just can't keep the ball in play long enough to do anything substantial. I guess I'm generally not anywhere near as good as I thought I was.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Hit the ball nearer the edge of the flippers. You'll get more orbit shots, combos and gods. The ball most often drains down the centre so learn to nudge.

    @Wesbish

    Pretty close! Another 10 or 20 seconds and you'd have beaten me.

    @rice_sandwich I actually find the ball is more likely to be lost to the gutters than between the flippers. Perhaps I'm just better prepared for that, I suppose. The gutterballs, however, I just can't deal with. Nudging seems to have zero impact, compared to the Bob's Burgers table. My timing is probably miles off.

    Anyway, I'll keep stabbing away it. It's a great table (minus the annoying and constant chatter).

    Hey thanks for setting up the tournament it's helpimh me to refund my love of pinball. Useful to just focus on one table instead of jumping around.

    65 million so far, although it's showing I have two entries for some reason, one at 44 million under my name and the 65 million is listed as xtra on my leaderboard, what's that all about?

    Hey! I'm doing good thanks! Very rarely get involved in the forum anymore but still read regularly!

    Those Mario Kart days were golden days indeed, a blast! Is JuanKerr still around?

    Managed to take third spot just now with a really lucky game! Somewhere just over 100 mil I think. I'm sure I'll be overtaken soon but I will enjoy this taste of victory while I can! :-D

    I'm going to put down Pinball FX for a bit. Not really been enjoying it these past few weeks. I've playing much more heavily than I usually would, but I'm not really making any kind of progression on any of the tables. It just feels like a constant grind, waiting for that one lucky ball to grant me a score I'd otherwise come nowhere close to. I'm really just repeating the same short experience over and over again and it begins to feel a little unfair and pointless.

    Good luck too everyone, though. Some crazy good scores in here. The competition is closing in!

    I'm thinking of making the next season ten tries for each table rather than unlimited so that might suit you more.

    Don't do that! I'm not suggesting folk are getting lucky. That's just my approach. That's how it works out for me at the moment. I'm clearly not playing in the right frame of mind, so I'm just going to put it aside until the cravings come back!

    I'll leave it up to others to decide. I tend to play 10-12 games each tournament and leave it at that, whatever score I've had. As you say it is quite frustrating to play for ages and not improve your score. I'm sure you'll get your pinball mojo back at some point.

    There isn't one. The all time high score list is just scores that I've logged from my friend list on the Switch.

    Ah, ok. I thought there might be one given the Son of Zeus leaderboard had a password.
