Just a little reminder that if you want to play in Indiana’s largest pinball tournament that takes place on September 16th & 17th right here in Lafayette that tickets go on sale next WEDNESDAY AT 12:00PM (AKA Noon)! Cost is $75 and that includes your entry fee, custom sticker, and t-shirt.
The tournament features two days of matchplay format competition, 10 rounds, 30 games of pinball! Awesome stickers, shirts, and plaques all custom designed for our tournament by the great people over at Double Danger Pinball! Makers of the coolest pinball clothing and accessories around! Be sure to check out their site and show them some love.
Summer, Summer, Summer Time! Oh, you thought just because we finished our Spring Season last night that we wouldn’t be organized and ready to go with some Summer Season fun so soon? Well you are WRONG! Our Summer Season will start-up on June 27th and stick to our typical Tuesday nights at 7:30PM down at Main Street Amusements!
Thinking about a mild change to the format where instead of playing the same games each week, each group could choose their own games each night, with each player picking one game per week in the group. Anyway looking forward to seeing everyone down there again. We do have an extra week off as we won’t be playing the week of the 4th of July. As always feel free to tell friends, family, neighbors, etc…. to come down and join us. I made up a few flyers as well, feel free to share them with anyone you would like.
Hey everyone! Thanks to all that turned out for finals last night down at Main Street Amusements. It was an awesome season. Tommy was able to walk out with the season championship last night, Tom came in second, and Dan St. John in third. Full results are posted below!
TONIGHT IS FINALS NIGHT!!!!!
Remember try to show up a little early so I can get our brackets all organized, and we can still get started at a decent time. See you all there tonight!
Just a quick reminder to everyone that we have league finals tomorrow night. There is a $10 entry fee for the tournament, and as usual all money is awarded back out in prizes for the top two finishers, this time it will be in both A & B division. All entry fee money stays with their division as well, equal splits. If we end up with an odd number of players the extra player will be in B division. We will use the point total from regular season for seeding.
Each match is a best of three series, higher seed has choice of game or position for game one, then lower seed has choice for game two, and if there is a game three choice goes back to higher seed. The tournament is double elimination so an early loss does not stop you from coming all the way back to claim victory.
Trophies will also be made up for the champion of each division. If anyone has questions get ahold of me. We will start right at 7:30, and I recommend getting there a few minutes early so we can get bracket organized and start play right away as finals night can sometimes run a bit longer with the different format. Hope to see all of you there tomorrow night!
Matt Peace successfully outlasted the field of nine players including our friend from Germany, Torsten, to claim the May Championship!
Torsten played in a monthly tournament with us last year while visiting the United States on business, it was his first competitive pinball event. He went on to place 8th out of 208 players at the German Pinball Open Classics Division, and then again this year he managed to place 13th out of 174 at the same event. Needless to say from a person having never played he has quickly moved up in the rankings to 848th in the world in just one year of competition. It was great to have him back for another visit, and Torsten finished in 5th at our event.
In the final match of the evening Matt defeated Bob Skinner, who made his 2017 debut in the Lafayette Pinball scene, and finished his night with only 1-strike. He squeaked by Tommy on Captain Fantastic by 160 points to hand him his second strike, before stomping him into the ground on Black Knight by tallying up nearly 3 million points knocking Tommy out in a third place finish. Ron would come in 4th on the evening to round out the top 4.
Due to some slight miscommunication on my part, I forgot to go pick up the donated prizes from our official sponsor the Lafayette Brewing Company (sorry everyone, my fault), but we have rectified everything and we will be right back on schedule for next month’s tournament which takes place on June 20th at 8PM. I’ve made up a few flyers that you can feel free to share with friends for the event and/or via social media.
Also don’t forget our Spring Season concludes with our Finals event next Tuesday, May 23rd, with our double elimination format tournament. See you all there at 7PM!
It’s the 3rd Tuesday of the month and that means 3-Strikes Tournament down at Main Street Amusements at 8:00 PM! There is a $5 entry fee, and all money is paid back out to the top 4 finishers. Doors open at 7:00 so come on down early and get in some practice games or maybe even play some Selfie League games and get some scores entered for that tournament as well! You keep playing until you lose three games, last person standing is champion for May! Any questions just shoot me a message, hope to see everyone tonight!
