I need to do a pick at random X amount of times, but I don't see a condition in the object properties. Doing a Peggle style game and I need to find a way to generate 10 random colored orbs.
Not sure I get what you need exactly, but you should probably create a loop that runs 10 times and into this loop you pick a random instance and do whatever you want to do with it.
I don't see the option to create a loop (unless it's paid option only). I'm using the free version. The only thing I see as a loop is "Stop Loop" in the actions.
Add an event.
Double click 'System'.
Start typing 'f-o-r' to narrow the choices; you will see For loop is an option.
Are you using Pick Random Instance?

Yeah, I'm using Pick Random Instance. I found it. I was looking in the wrong place.
System > Loops
There are 5 methods for creating loops. In your case I guess the best one is For. Give a name to your loop and use the default settings (1 to 10) which will already give you 10 loop iteractions.
