Pingolf Scoring Suggestions

Pingolf is a pinball tournament format that requires a certain achievement on each machine played in the tournament.  The achievement could be a scoring achievement, a mode start a combination or something else. Like golf, low score wins.

A full set of rules can be found at Pins and Needles.  Some pages indicate that Pingolf originated at Pins and Needles.  Check out Pins and Needles.

I have been looking around, but have not been able to find scoring suggestions listed for many machines.

I am trying to figure out the best scoring for the following line up.  I am thinking about the following, but would like to hear any suggestions.

Grand Prix EM – par three – 350,000, light extra ball

Close Encounters – par three – 400,000, light spinner

Jungle Lord – par three – start double trouble scoring, two magnasave saves

Time Machine – par three – 500,000, score green bonus

Whirlwind – par three – three million plus shots

Fish Tales – par three – monster fish, video mode and rock the boat

World Cup Soccer 94 – par three – Boston tea party, start hit the goalie

Iron Man – par three – start bogey, collect iron man, start any two of whiplash, iron monger or war machine

  1. I’d love to try out pingolf. A couple of the achievements (e.g., 3 million shot on Whirlwind) are likely unreachable for me – I think I’d have a lot of “5”s on my scorecard.
    On Jungle Lord, it seems pretty subjective to count magnasave saves.

    For Fish Tales, how about a single multiball jackpot?
