Thank you to everyone who participated in the April Super-Selfie League! We were up to 15 competitors this month over the nine we had the first month which was nice to see. Last night the finals took place with eight participants.
Matt, Tommy, Keith, and Tom in “A” Division battled it out for some tokens! Craig, Dan I., Dan S., and Chris in “B” division fighting for pride and reputation. Matt and Craig would be driving the bus for their respective groups on the night. Before the finals began we agreed to a slight point change from PAPA scoring 4,2,1,0 to Pinburgh scoring 3,2,1,0 so to insure that all three games on the night would carry weight. In the end the decision paid off and led to multiple tie-breaker games being played demonstrating the equal skill level of all the players involved.
In “A” group Matt would pick Game of Thrones, Metallica, and Harlem Globetrotters but only coming away with victory on GoT. Tommy would come up with the wins on Metallica and HG, while Keith and Matt traded out 2nd and 3rd place on those two, Tom had a rare “off” night for him and brought up the rear of the group. After the third game Tommy and Matt were dead even in points leading to a mandatory tie-breaker. Matt threw a curve and elected to be second player forcing Tommy to choose between Demolition Man and Captain Fantastic; he chose Demolition Man. Heading into ball three they were seperated by under a 100 million points. Tommy was able to start a multiball and capitalize on a few jackpots while Matt’s ball three took and unfortunate bounce while targeting the multiball start shot and headed down the drain. Final results for “A” Tommy 1st, Matt 2nd, Keith 3rd, and Tom 4th.
In “B” group Craig chose Harlem Globetrotters, Metallica, and Captain Fantastic. Dan I. came away with a clean victory on Harlem only take a quick fall into last place on the next two games. This allowed Chris and Craig to battle into a tie for 1st place, while Dan I. and Dan S. slid into a tie for 3rd. Both groups elected to play their tie-breaker on Game of Thrones. In the end Craig was able to edge out Chris in their tie-breaker, and Dan I. finally stopped his 2 game skid while clinching 3rd place from Dan S. Final restults for “B” Craig 1st, Chris 2nd, Dan I 3rd, Dan S. 4th.
