New Pinball Dictionary: Ace/Aced/Aced Out

Ace

1. To reach the target score of a game in a PinGolf entry in one ball. This is also known as a Hole-in-One.

2. To win on the last ball by less than 1% of your score, especially if it takes bonus count to do it.

Aced; Aced Out

To be defeated on the last ball by less than 1% of your score, especially if it takes bonus count to do it. You can tell if someone got “Aced” when players and bystanders are talking about how close the game was and then they start taking pictures of the final score.

Note that only the latter player can Ace someone out. If the latter player fails to make a comeback and loses to the former player by less than 1%, that is a “Heartbreaker“.

 

In this example, Francesco was aced by Alberto.

A difference of 0.24%.
