Well we are one week into the month of May for Super-Selfie League and here are the standings as of Monday afternoon! A bit of a shake up in the top 4 from the previous two months, get in to MSA and take some pictures of those scores! Reminder games are Spider-Man, The Walking Dead, Funhouse, Medieval Madness and Eight Ball Deluxe.
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.
Results have been submitted and approved by the IFPA, I may have made a mistake in submitting the value of the tournament but won’t be able to tell until they have posted the points, if I did I will get that corrected.
Hey guys, great turnout last night and some really competitive games! Dan St. John came away with the most points on the night at 17 leading the way in group 2. Tommy Skinner eked out the lead in group 1 where every player was separated by just one point putting up 14 points on the night. Terry Vandervate led the way in group 3 with 15 points and clean victories on Funhouse, Monopoly, and Power Play. Keith Alyea claimed victory in group 4 with 15 points as well just missing out on a grand champion score on Medieval Madness and almost breaking a million on Eight Ball Deluxe! Games for week 4 are Family Guy, Revenge from Mars, South Park, Spanish Eyes, and Strikes and Spares!
Reminder that tonight is the Super-Selfie League Finals at 7:30. You will play in groups of 4, and 3 games will be played so it should take roughly an hour. Top seed in each group gets to have choice of either game or position all night. Scoring is 4/2/1/0 for each game in order of finish. Last month this was worth more points than our typical monthly tournament due to the format of the tournament so anyone interested in making the state finals at the end of the year is strongly encouraged to attend the finals for Super-Selfie League. Hope to see all of you there! Approximate matchups below if everyone attends.
Reminder for everyone that we have Week 3 tonight at 7:30 down at Main Street Amusements. Games are Medieval Madness, Monopoly, Funhouse, Eight Ball Deluxe, and Bobby Orr Power Play. Medieval Madness, Funhouse, and Eight Ball Deluxe are all in Super-Selfie league for May so go ahead and play those extra balls and we will include those scores into both leagues for everyone.
Also tomorrow night, 5/4/2016, we have the finals for April Super-Selfie League! Remember the format is a bit different for this as we play PAPA Style in groups of 4. The top seed in each division gets to drive the bus and choose which games the group plays for the night from the 5 that were available in April. The group plays 3 games and scoring is 4/2/1/0….we may discuss changing the scoring format to Pinburgh style 3/2/1/0 if players are interested. I will also take a roll call tonight to see who will be showing up tomorrow night so we can adjust groups as necessary. See you all tonight!
Get down to MSA, play some games and snap some pictures! Qualifying lasts until closing time on Saturday, finals will be next Wednesday evening. Remember everyone who plays qualifies for finals and you will just play in groups of 4 across 3 games. High seed gets game selection or position choice on all 3 games so you are shooting for 1st,5th,9th,13th place to be driving the bus for your group. Can anyone knock Matt from atop the heap? Standings below.
Just a reminder to everyone you can play in the Super-Selfie League at anytime down at Main Street Amusements. What’s that? You don’t feel comfortable taking a selfie. Oh no big deal, you don’t have to! It’s just a name for the tournament, if you don’t want to take a selfie you can simply include a thumbs up or thumbs down with you picture. What’s that? You have oddly shaped thumps and that makes you uncomfortable too. Oh no big deal, just include a timestamp on your photo, you know like photos used to have anyway. Here are a few apps that can let you do that all for free! Remember scores can be submitted on your own to Match Play, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or texted to Tommy 574-596-2668. Lets see some scores this weekend!
Hey Everyone! Here is an update on the standings for the always running Super-Selfie League! There have been some huge scores put up already, but you still have 17 days to improve upon them. Remember we are broken down into groups of 4 for the finals night, and prize money is given in tokens to the top 3 finishers overall from finals night. Also a simple picture of your score is enough to submit a score, you don’t need your face included if you aren’t comfortable with that. Hope to see more scores coming in soon, and contact me with any questions.
