More about the Magnets from Josh Kugler on the Head 2 Head Interview: “The game has four magnets. On the lower sides kind of lower down on the playfield are two banks of stand up targets, Oktober on one side and Fest on the other. There is a magnet around those to help get some action on those targets.
