    Haha, watching now-wait till I tell Billy, lol, I bet he's over here next weekend!
    I imagine you noticed, the previous high score was at my house, on my setup, but was my buddy Billy, not me, I ain't no good at pinballs...
    Did you see/hear of my run on this where I got the friggin ball stuck bouncing back and forth between the two bumpers?
    That was funny!
    Big score, 'grats in advance!!!
    So they say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh, oh, oh

    I do remember seeing your ball-stuck video. Saw it quite awhile ago LOL! That was hilarious heh heh. Haven't had a chance to watch Billy's video yet, though. ;-)

    Just gabbing-
    He's my first drummer, is amazing, loves games and I got him to sign up here a few years ago, he's sporadic paying attention, but he DOES ask me if anyone has beat his score on this yet occasionally!
    :D
    He's also way better at Metroid Pinball than his current scores indicate, and in general is just a fantastic pinball player, he introduced me to Visual Pinball and Pinmame years ago(which I am probably not smart enough to get set up and running now, those are a *****...).
    I convinced him to give this a shot, and his run was after one short practice run-PISSED me off, lol, I think I may be going "seriously?" in the video, he really didn't know the particular game, and to me it just seemed like he was toying with it, not struggling at all, lol, was crazy!

    I don't know this to be an actual fact, but based on his general hand-eye on the pinball in particular, it's in my head that any really good drummer could almost automatically be better at pinball than "average Joe".

    Yeah...why wasn't my score accepted...wasn't my friggin fault...
    :P
    So they say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh, oh, oh

    Hahahaha! Yes, this is one of those games that seems to me like it doesn't take much to get a good score, even with no experience playing it. This was the first time I played the game. The fast variation (Game 1) is pretty challenging though.

    Well, not taking away from either of your scores(and disputing "doesn't take much", lol, I am sooo bad at this!!!), but I was saying just the fact that he understood pinball angles and stuff prior to playing the game, plus the left/right coordination required to drum well was a "natural advantage" on these.

    I can definitely see a professional drummer having inherently superior hand-eye coordination. I never really though of that skill transfer to pinball - great observation! For the record, I'm pretty sure I suck at drumming LOL!
