Battle Dome is "the game of rapid-fire action and lightning-quick reflexes!" It is a pinball-style game in which colored plastic marbles fall from a motorized dispenser down onto a dome, and then fall into one of four chutes. Players 2-4 control a set of flippers at their chute and try to shoot the falling balls into their opponent's goals while keeping marbles out of theirs. Any marbles in your goal count against you, with the black "stealth" marble counting extra. There are spinners and bells on the dome that the marbles hit - these can be rearranged, or replaced by a fence to block off one or two chutes if there are fewer than 4 players.
