Just your friendly reminder that the January Selfie Tournament finals will be tonight at about 8:30 PM. Top 8 get to play in finals, but we already know Matt Peace can’t make it and neither can Kim Coghill so that makes Tom Vandenberg the 8th seed and John Hawxby the first alternate. 4 strike tournament, 2 strikes per group.
Here are the current Team League Standings as well after two weeks. This week the Region Rats and the Doom Room will face each other in a make-up match from last week having both teams play doubleheaders this week.
Pindemonium Zwei will face the Doom Room, the Region Rats battle Pull & Pray, and RIP Tommy B looks to return to winning form against the Super Jackpots.
This is just your friendly reminder that you have until Thursday night to get in scores for the January Selfie Tournament on Royal Rumble and Stars. The top 8 qualifiers are invited to play in the 4-strikes tournament the following Monday night. Below are the current standings. If anyone in the top 8 can’t make it we will move down the list of names.
February Selfie Tournament will start on Friday! The games for February will be the brand new Monster Bash Remake that is featured out in the bowling alley, it is $.75 per game, or buy 3 get 1 free. There is a nice tutorial video below.
The second game for February will be the Classic Stern Stingray!
A beautiful machine.
A huge thank you to everyone who made the trek down to North End Pub yesterday for our first monthly tournament. I personally really appreciate you taking your time to travel and play pinball at the bar, and hope everyone had a great event. Congratulations to Keith Alyea on winning the 4-Strikes tournament with huge back to back wins on Indy 500 and Prospector to clinch the victory. We also had a few first-time players in Chris Dean and Kaleb Wilken who put up great performances and hope to see you both playing in more tournaments in the near future.
Remember next week’s tournament for the Indianapolis/Lafayette Super Circuit will be at Fountain Square Brewery in Indianapolis. Details can be found here.
Congrats to David Linder on drawing #30 and winning the Royal Rumble Elimination Challenge as well.
Don’t forget that Wednesday is FREE PLAY night at North End Pub and you have until Thursday night to get your selfie scores submitted for Royal Rumble and Stars, the selfie finals will be next Monday night.
And don’t forget that Thursday night is Team League night, see everyone there!
Get down to North End Pub tonight for FREE PLAY Wednesday and your last chance at getting in practice before tomorrow night when TEAM LEAGUE returns! As of right now, I believe we have at least 6 teams that are playing for the cup this year.
- Super Jackpots – Tommy, Kaleb, Josh, John, and Alyssa
- Casey’s Team – Casey, Ed, and Carla
- Region Rats – Phil Mowers, Travis Lancaster, Mark Uncapher, Matt Tozcek, Brad Smith, & Nick Beach
- Sam’s Team – I’m assuming Sam has assembled a team
- Keith’s Team – Keith, Janet, Danielle, and Michael
- Doom Room – I’m assuming the Doom Room will assemble a force to be reckoned with by Thursday.
If anyone else wants in we can place you on other teams or still arrange for a new team to be scheduled into the league. We will play on Thursday nights starting a bit after 8:00 PM. As always players are encouraged to eat, drink, and be cheer on your teammates. This league is designed to be relaxing and fun.

Here are the updated standings for the January Selfie Tournament! Remember today is FREE PLAY WEDNESDAY! A great night to get down to North End Pub and play some free pinball, east some amazing pizza, and get those scores in for the selfie tournament on Stars and Royal Rumble. Finals will be the first Monday night in February, you have two more weeks to improve those scores!
Also, a reminder that this coming Sunday there is the 7th Anniversary Party and Pinball Tournament at Main Street Amusements, the tourney will start at 7:30 PM.
The following Sunday, January 27th, there will be two pinball tournaments at North End Pub as well as a watch party for the WWE Royal Rumble! The tournament will start at 4PM on Sunday, and be 4 strikes knockout. Then during the Royal Rumble, we will host our own version of that on Royal Rumble Pinball Machine as well using a ladder knockout format. Won’t be worth a lot of points but should be pretty damn fun, going to take a bit of luck to win that one. Feel free to bring some food to share that night as we usually do a bit of a pot luck style dinner for the event. Hope to see everyone there!
A reminder that Team League is just two weeks away! We start on January 24th. A team needs to have a minimum of 3 players but can expand up to 6 players so you have subs or just take turns playing. So far we have two registered teams.

The team includes Phil Mowers, Travis Lancaster, Mark Uncapher, Matt Tozcek, Brad Smith, & Jim Francus. Welcome to the league guys and we look forward to playing with you.
The Double Super Jackpots! This team is composed of a few of your returning Team League champions including Josh Burton and Tommy Skinner, they will be joined by Kaleb Wilken this season with the possibility of more teammates to come.
