First off, congrats to the Region Rats on an epic victory in Team League 2019! They rose up from their second place regular season placement to win the championship by 1 point over Pindemonium Zwei! with the final game being decided on Stars! THE CUP will soon be emblazoned with their team name an individual members names as well. Thank you to everyone who came out and played in Team League. The time is now to start prepping for 2020! Get your teams ready!
Secondly congrats to Travis Kearney on winning the February Selfie Tournament last night! The battle was closely contested as it came down to all players having 3 strikes heading into the last couple of games. Travis finished at the top, Casey Taylor in 2nd, Tom Vandenberg in 3rd, and Michael Alexander in 4th. Thanks to all 17 players who put up scores for the month of February. Look to play Split Second and World Cup Soccer for March! Both games are still having some gremlins sorted out but are playable currently and will only get better throughout the month. You can now post your scores to Matchplay, you can write them down on the official score sheets that are attached to the games with magnetic clipboards, or you can just text them to me 574-596-2668. You have until the end of March to get those scores in. Below are the current standings for March.
Third, we start our new individual season on Thursday night at 8:30 PM. We will still be using pinballportal.com to enter our scores each night. The season will last 8 weeks, and your two lowest weeks will be dropped from the standings for your season total. The top finishers from the season will get to compete in the Hoosier Open Pinball Super-League Finals event at a date and time to be determined. They will face off against the top players from other leagues located around the state to determine an overall champion.
Lastly, don’t forget about the Indianapolis Lafayette Circuit Series. This Sunday the tournament is held at Tappers in Indianapolis. The 17th will be at Main Street Amusements in Lafayette, and the 24th will be at North End Pub. Each tournament just has a $1 entry fee plus coin drop.

And as always FREE PLAY WEDNESDAY will be here TOMORROW! A great night to get those scores entered for the selfie tournament!
Hey guys and gals, we had another great turnout and some average play as the games seemed to be kicking everyone’s butt last night haha. Hopefully everyone still had a pretty good time. MVP on the night goes to Mr. Dan St. John bringing home 16.5 points, followed up closely by Andy and Rick each scoring 15. Full results and standings are below.
With that being said there are no games to announce for week 7 or 8 yet because at this point in the season we have now played every game at MSA at least once during the course of our season. It is up to the players now to choose what games you most want to play for weeks 7 & 8. I have made a survey using Google Forms, simply select the 10 games you would like to play the most over the next two weeks and that is what we will play. The survey also contains a questions about what format you would like our finals to be in on May 23rd. The last several years we have just done one bracket, but with so many players this season I thought it may be better to go back to splitting into two divisions like we have in some previous seasons, anyway I will leave it up to a vote. Survey can be completed directly below, or you can click here. You can also view the results when you complete the survey to see what games it looks like we will be playing.
As always any questions or concerns just let me know. I’ll announce the game choices on Monday morning so anyone who wants to get down to MSA for some practice on Monday will still have time. See you all next week!
We had an awesome turnout last night, probably our biggest group in a few seasons. Thanks to all the new members this season who have come out, I hope you are enjoying the league. Newest members to join up last night were Alyssa, Rick, and Joe…that makes 8 new members to the league this season! I think at this point we are going to have to give out a Rookie of the Season award. Below are the full results from last night. Group winners on the evening were Matt, Keith, Andy, Terry, and Rick. Overall standings are up, and since we are halfway through the season now your two lowest weeks will be dropped from your scores at this point on through the rest of the season. Also remember you must participate in 4 out of 8 weeks to play in the finals at the end of the season. If our numbers stay up I think we will split into an A & B division for the league championships. We can discuss that in the weeks to come.
Below are the games for next week, 4/11/2017, Star Trek, The Walking Dead, Tron Le, Captain Fantastic, and Harlem Globetrotters.
Selfie League Finals for March were also played last night since we had all participants in attendance. Keith claimed the top spot, followed up by Tom, then Dan St. John, and Matt.

If you aren’t sure about selfie league, have questions, or just don’t know how to play please contact me and I can get you all set up. Our Selfie League Page has a lot of info, but I know that a new format can always be a bit confusing so don’t hesitate to reach out.
Week 4 is in the books! Matt, Keith, and Terry all had dominating nights within their groups each coming away with solid victories. Below are the full results from last night.
And with those results in all of the Selfie League standings have been updated as well.

Finals will be next Wednesday at 7:30 PM.

Thank you and congrats to everyone who made it out to participate in the Fall 2016 Lafayette Pinball League Finals last night at Main Street Amusements! As always thank you to Dan St. John for allowing us to use his amazing location to host our league events. A big congratulations goes out to our new Champion Matt Peace as well as to the repeat Runner-Up Tom Vandenberg! Darcy Thomas made a very strong showing with a 3rd place finish and Dan St. John rounded out our final four coming in 4th.

I also tried to take some pictures of everyone playing in the early rounds, I apologize if I missed anyone, but I feel like league is important to all of us for a variety of reasons and it was nice to try to capture the fun moments. Plus you know this means there is a Winter Season hype video coming…
Reminder that next week will be the Monthly 3-strikes tournament. I will be gone on vacation, but the tournament will still be run through Brackelope as usual. Still starts at 8PM and is 3 strikes format with a $5 entry fee.
Our winter league starts back up November 1st at 7:30 PM. View the calendar here.
Lastly I’ve contacted Double Danger Pinball who did our logo and shirts for Main Street Mayhem, as well as the newest batch of Main Street Amusement shirts about designing a league logo for us that we could use on a shirt and custom awards in the future. I’m including a brief poll, a simple yes or no response.
Hey guys, nice attendance last night and some very close games across the board. Here are the results from last evening and the current league standings with two weeks of regular season play left! The two amigos had huge nights with Dan I. posting up 18.5 points and Craig just behind with 17 points both winning their respective groups. Ron and Tommy were the other group winners on the night all with close totals. Matt and Keith remain at the top of the heap, but with two weeks left it’s still anyone’s season to win!
Next week is the 3rd Tuesday of the month so that means it’s time for the monthly 3 strikes tournament! Remember this tournament starts at 8:00 PM sharp, and cost $5 to play in! Last player without 3 strikes (loses) is the champion, and all entry fee money is paid back to the top 4 finishers!
Lastly, Saturday and Sunday is Main Street Mayhem! It is a two day matchplay tournament. Over the two days you will play 10 rounds of competitive pinball, 3 games per round! That means 30 games of pinball over 2 days! Playing in the tournament gets you a sweet shirt, custom sticker, and a chance to win cash prizes and awesome custom plaques all designed for us by Double Danger Pinball! Signing up for the tournament only takes a few minutes and the format is guaranteed to be fun for all who attend! REGISTER HERE! Below are the tournament banks that will be used and a picture of the official tournament logo that will be featured on the shirts, stickers, and awards!
Okay, last night we had a lower attendance rate than usual but that was expected for the post holiday date, next week I’m sure we will see a few more faces back at MSA!
For week 5 Tom Vandenburg and Brian Bauer come away as the MVPs both posting 17.5 points and winning their respective groups! They were closely trailed by Keith Alyea and Darcy Thomas who were nipping at their heels with 17 points each. Tom was the winner in Group 1, Darcy in Group 2, and Brian in Group 3!
As far as overall standings go Matt and Keith are at the top with Matt edging Keith out by just a 1/2 point right now! Here are the full week 5 results and overall standings for Fall Season!
Games for week 6 are Avatar LE, Eight Ball Deluxe, Star Wars Episode 1, Transformers LE, and Spanish Eyes! Since Eight Ball Deluxe and Transformers LE are featured in the Selfie League for September we will go ahead and play extra balls on those two games!
See everyone next week! Also remember next Saturday and Sunday, September 17th-18th is Main Street Mayhem! If you haven’t signed up to play I strongly encourage you to as it will be a very fun two days of pinball. If you really don’t want to play, but still want to check it out I am sure we could use some volunteers to help during the tournament to help report stuck balls, game malfunctions, and other useful contributions. Let me know if you are interested in volunteering, or if you need help getting registered for the tournament!
Hey everyone, had another good turnout last night and some highly competitive games, hope everyone had a good time. Here are the standings after two weeks! Matt sits at the top of the heap, followed closely by Tom, Tommy and Craig.
Games for week 3 (8/23/2016) are Game of Thrones Premium, Medieval Madness, Monopoly, Power Play, and Spanish Eyes.

Remember that next week is the monthly tournament. As always it will start at 8:00PM, cost is $5 to enter, and the format is 3-strikes elimination. You will be pitted against a random opponent on a random game, everyone continues playing until there is only one person left without 3 strikes. Hope everyone can make it!
Hey guys! Just wanted to send a big thanks out to everyone who showed up for week 1! It was awesome to see everyone again and hopefully we can keep our numbers growing so feel free to bring a friend tomorrow for week 2. Jeff thanks for making the drive and checking out league, glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you coming back more and more.
Below are the standings after week 1. Matt Peace was 1/2 point shy of completing a perfect week which has not happened since we began keeping our stats via PinPortal! Also Joe had to leave due to an emergency, he had not completed Family Guy or Spider-Man when he left, he went back and played those games on Thursday and I will get those scores entered asap, it should only have a mild impact on overall standings.
The games for week 2 are as follows Eight Ball Deluxe, Avatar LE, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Demolition Man, and Harlem Globetrotters!
Here are tutorials for the games in case anyone needs some pointers before tomorrow night!
Lastly here are the updated standings for Super-Selfie League for August! Matt is sitting at the top right now with some dominant scores, who can knock him off?!
