It is our first tournament of 2020 down at North End Pub this Sunday! 4-Strikes format, no entry fee just coin drop on the machines. The tournament will be followed by the WWE Royal Rumble and the typical North End Pub feast/pot luck dinner! Bring something to share if you want or just bring your appetite and get ready to eat well!
We also installed the new Stern Stranger Things pinball over in the bowling alley last night. I closed the outlanes a bit and increased the ball save time. The way the code sits right now you are better off playing for modes and multiball and ignoring the Demogorgon up the middle, but if you do feel the need to battle him just know killing it by shooting it into the mouth is difficult. Our launch party will be on February 16th for that game!
Also if you are looking to play any Bram Stoker’s Dracula get down to the bar and do it before Saturday because on Saturday BSD is leaving, and Demolition Man is coming in!
Demolition Man was one of the first games I learned to play back in the day and has some of the coolest features in pinball, plus it is loaded with great shots and tons of different multiball modes!
Check out this video tutorial in case you are unfamiliar with it as it will most likely be in the tournament on Sunday!
Tonight get ready to have the time of your life…
Team League at North End Pub 8:30!!!!
Get ready to battle it out for league supremacy! The NFL season may be coming to a close, but North End Pub’s Team Pinball League season is just starting up! Thursday night at 8:30 get ready to face off in the most fun pinball format around! Compete for 6 weeks and at the end of the season have your name engraved on The Cup forever!
It is with a heavy heart that we have a special benefit tonight at North End Pub and Market Square Lanes.
The Gephart family recently lost their infant son Aiden after battling several illnesses in his short life. I can’t possibly imagine what it would be like to go through something like this. Come down and bowl from 6-9 PM and all money will go towards their cause, and if bowling isn’t your thing we will also be donating all the coin drop from our pinball machines tonight to the cause. So come down and donate whatever you can, however you can as every bit will help.
You can read more details about Aiden’s battle on their Go Fund Me page if you would like, and if you can’t attend in person you can still make donations there. Aiden was laid to rest on December 31st, 2019. We are incredibly sorry for your loss, and we hope our small contribution can help.
The countdown has begun! Only 10 days away from kicking off Team Pinball League at North End Pub!
Team League is back for the 3rd year and starts January 16th at 8:30 PM! We have expanded our line up of machines to 20+ at the location and should be bringing in our brand new Stranger Things machine just in time for the start of the season. Your team just needs to have at least 3 players but can really accommodate as many as you want to split time with.
The whole idea for team league is to hang out with friends and have some fun playing pinball! The reigning champion Region Rats are coming back to defend their title! We will, of course, start the season with the presentation of The Cup from last year.
If you have a team ready to go let me know ASAP so I can start to get an idea of numbers and scheduling matches. If you still need a team let me know that too and we can start pairing people together to form some random teams. Looking very forward to the return of Team League, see everyone soon!
Also, the selfie games for January are Fish Tales, Godzilla, and WWF Royal Rumble!
Welcome to 2020 everyone! We will keep hosting our monthly 4-Strikes tournament on the 4th Sunday of every month in 2020, tournaments will always start at 1 PM now, looking forward to seeing everyone come on down the bar to compete!
On that note we’d also like to announce some new Pinquest challenges that are starting today! Right now Brett Maxwell is the current NEP Champion but how long that will last no one knows as he faces challenges from Kim Coghill, Kerri Donohue, Tommy Skinner, and Max Senesac in the coming days. With that being said we have updated the Title Shot Challenge on Pinquest which now features WWF Royal Rumble, Jurassic Park and Flash Gordon. As per usual anyone who completes this quest gets a title shot in a best of 5 format where you will play these three machines to start, and then game 4 if necessary is picked by the challenger, and game 5 if necessary is picked by the champion. Anyone who has previously completed the title shot challenge can again complete this one for another shot at the champion.
We have also created another path to a title shot called the Billionaire’s Club. This quest proves to be quite challenging but as your reward you not only get a title shot but you get to name the terms of the match, the only rule is that it takes place at North End Pub. You must score 1,000,000,000 points on World Cup Soccer, The Flintstones, and Star Wars to complete this quest.
Congrats on surviving 2019, hope everyone has a wonderful 2020! We are looking forward to bringing you more Pinquest challenges throughout the year! Team League is back January 16th so start getting those teams ready, and HOPS League returns in March!
Get down to North End Pub while we wrap up our year of competitive pinball! The last 4-Strikes tournament of the year starts at 1 PM today! Tomorrow night we have our December Selfie Tournament finals, and that is it for 2019!
In January of 2020 we bring back Team League! Thursday nights grab a group of friends and come play in the most entertaining for of pinball we bring you all year! Winning team gets your names engraved on the Championship Cup at the end of the season. It is the best way to spend a Thursday evening! League starts January 16th at 8:30 PM!
