I don't average 300 on this game. [tongue]  I'm up to 222, and I've got medals for all the tournaments.  The only thing stopping me is that North Pole Invitational.  That one qualifier with 8 games, I've been at it for a while now and I cannot qualify and score high enough.  Its the shark pattern which I've typically used the Grindstone on and done ok.  I cannot get it to work here....maybe the lane is extra slick because its ice. [tongue]  I've tried the Grab Bag ball with the best shot at it, but always lose it in the last game.

Any suggestions on how to get over the hump on this one?

Just to laugh, and update, I beat the qualifier.  I tried something radical...I used the red house ball and averaged 240 with it.  Got me 3rd place. [biggrin]

Nicely done! I stuggled with that tournament, took me a few tries to get it done. Environment is cool though...

Not sure if anyone is still playing this, but the PBA is adding real life bowling balls into the game now. They've been adding 1 per week for a while now, and have hit all the major brands at this point with the exception of Track, and the newly registered 900 Global. I've been playing constantly to save up enough tickets to buy them when they are released. I also finally got that ToC challenge done after like a year of playing. Made it to level 129 before I completed it!

I still do play it on occasion.  I keep making sure to do that spin-the-wheel thing.  How else would I get gold pins? [tongue]

Current stats:

Level 298
Game progress 89.3%
Lifetime average: 227

Multiplayer average: 237.4
Multiplayer wins: 335
Multiplayer losses: 258
Multiplayer ties: 19

My go-to ball is the red Grab-Bag ball.  I also got some red-white-blue ball around July 4th that explodes every now and then that I like.  I've never seen anyone else use it.
