I am not sure why I ended up with an I500. I sold a game and was looking for a replacement. It was a title I hadn’t played and I was looking for something off the beaten path and with the production being relatively low at 2,249 I jumped when one came up locally(“local” in this hobby is usually a 20 hour driving radius). My game was living outside of Boone, NC so it was like a milk run for a pinhead.
Game had a couple of issues when I bought it. The game has targets with lit quadrants. One objective of the game is to light all four lights to increase scoring and the targets are prone to breaking. Mine had one of these but it was an easy fix and the game was good to go.
So here is the thing about I500, it is wickedly fast and hard. It hands me my ass almost every time I play it except on our league nights. I don’t know why but I have had some of the most fun groupings on it. Not sure if it is because I don’t play it as much as other tables, like AFM and BSD, so it is fresher and more fun to play or if I have just lucked into having decent games when I need one. Either way I always look forward to it on league night. This past round it didn’t make it into our list of 6 so was a bit disappointed.
And now to be humbled. Below is the recently released Bowen Kerins tutorial. I can’t stomach to watch Bowen’s tutorials as I frankly don’t want to know how much I suck but for anyone that actually wants to know how to destroy the table here you go….
