The Addams Family 20 Million, No-Flip Challenge!

taf20millarcadia

Your mission is to score 20,000,000 points on The Addams Family without using the flipper buttons once. It sounds logically impossible. However, it is possible if you allow your logical thinking to go a little wibbly-wobbly. WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!

Is it a YouTube rite of passage to do a challenge video? Because this was a challenge on which I recorded a video. In the current year, it’s no longer “pics or it didn’t happen”, it’s more like “video or it didn’t happen”. And even then …

Massive spoilerific video below:

 

 

 

One pinballer has taken the challenge and will try to do it on Twitch.

From Jeff Parsons on Facebook:

Sunday, November 27 at 6PM, Dave Aceto will take the Bowen Kerins 20 Million Point Addams Family No-Flip Challenge live on Twitch at Arcadia National Bar. Can he score 20 million points on a game of The Addams Family without flipping? Watch at http://twitch.tv/mepinball and find out!

This is the mission plan: (Massive spoilers below. Highlight the blank looking area to reveal them.)

  • Begin Ball One.
  • Plunge skill shot for 2 Million and one G-R-E-E-D letter.
  • Landing in saucer awards 100,000.
    • Total: 2,1000,000
  • TILT the game before the ball ends.
    • This gives you an extra G-R-E-E-D letter.
    • You know have two G-R-E-E-D letters.
  • Begin Ball Two.
  • Plunge skill shot for 3 Million and one G-R-E-E-D letter.
    • Landing in saucer awards 100,000.
    • Total 5,200,000.
  • TILT the game before the ball ends.
    • This gives you an extra G-R-E-E-D letter.
    • You know have four G-R-E-E-D letters.
  • Begin Ball Three.
  • Plunge skill shot for 4 Million and one G-R-E-E-D letter.
    • Landing in saucer awards 100,000.
    • Since you have all five G-R-E-E-D letters, Thing will lock the ball.
    • Total 9,300,000
      • However, you will score more points (“X”) as the ball goes through the subway and stops at the lock.
    • Total is now 9,300,000 + X 
      • Your total will be more than 10,000,000 because of X
  • It’s still ball three, and another ball is served out to the plunger lane.
  • Plunge skill shot for 5 Million.
    • Landing in the saucer awards 100,000.
    • Since the lock is lit, Thing will lock the ball.
    • Total 14,400,000 + X
      • However, you will score more points again (“Y”) as the ball goes through the subway and stops at the lock.
    • Total is 14,400,000 + X + Y
      • Your total will be more than 15, 000,000 because of X and Y.
  • It’s still ball three, and another ball is served out to the plunger lane.
  • Plunge skill shot for 5 Million. (You have passed 20,000,000!)
    • Landing in the saucer awards 100,000.
  • Celebrate as the ball drains, because you have passed the challenge!
