** As pinball champion Keith Elwin points out in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghtDxTljex8 his tutorial for the game]], all modes run on the same timer (similar to ''Pinball/TheSimpsonsPinballParty''). Furthermore, starting a new timed mode when others are active will reset the timer for all modes currently in play. The timed Continent modes, Road Trip, and 2X Playfield fall under this rule.
