I finally beat my long standing R&M score, more than doubled it! Also reached Morty's choice where you choose your own adventure from the default starting stamps of 4.
3 balls and 2 extras. Sadly there was an extra ball lit but not collected when the game finally ended, I hate leaving an extra ball on the playfield.

Was in Horde and down to last ball, it killed flippers so ball drained then said continue and put another ball in shooter lane but Horde finished. Don’t know where I was in Horde, thought you had to shoot Woodbury to get out? Only my second time in Horde.
Edit: Maybe I got bit but didn’t notice?

The best mode in pinball bar none. I still get shivers down my spine when the crickets start churpping .

I love my Rocky and Bullwinkle but it‘s been an annoyance that despite owning the game for ages I haven’t had my name as the WABAC Machine champ.

That all changed today with my going back 900 years (9 shots) which was frustratingly 1 shot short of an extra 50m points for going back 1000 years, but at least it now shows my initials :clap:

Had a few games on GoTG as my daughter was round and she loves the music (said it didn't feel like Guardians with the @myPinballs mix on it, which I kind of agree with) so put the old card back in with stock settings. Couple of rubbish games and then this one, which wasn't that popular in a three player game, until she realised I might beat her brother...

Took three attempts to finish the last mode, Santuary, as progress doesn't carry over (bloody annoying).

So, I finally, for the first time, managed to qualify Save Xandar and I'm getting close to Josh's #4 score. Of course, then I missed the scoop three times before draining. I was slightly annoyed.

Rubbish photo as this didn't even get on the board

That’s a great score though. I also think the stock music is the best way to go but with all the movie dialogue turned off. Otherwise you just hear the same songs over & over.
I’ve only just about broken 1 billion - looks like I’ve got some practise due.

It's not stock, Ive been using the Cleland mix from Day 1 as it has more of the film soundtrack songs and real voices. Probably the machine I've played most by some margin.

Immolation is a huge score boost. Once you've got the four modes for Cherry Bomb, don't replay any modes you didn't complete if you made it halfway as that's all you need for Immolation.

No idea if this is good or not but I was playing for ages and was good enough for the GC at geeks and gamers in Falkirk. Which seems to have the toughest scoop shot known to man I might add!

Connected up the 15” sub and had a few games to tune it in, Avatar‘s sound quality is much better than the other SAM’s I have and found out it drops lower too.
Had 4 of the modes flashing on ball one with 84 mil then messed it up.

Was wondering why I hadn’t RTU and noticed 5 way combo wasn’t lit, doh!
