Wednesday is still FREE PLAY all night long!
A big reminder that there is NO TEAM LEAGUE THIS THURSDAY, Feb. 14th! Spend Valentine’s Day with someone special, or your local pinball location, both are equally important 😉 !
Sunday, Feb. 17th there is a 4-Strikes tournament at Main Street Amusements at 7:30 PM! $1 entry fee to play in the tournament.
The following Thursday, Feb. 21st, all teams will play doubleheaders for Team League, and the then Feb. 28th we will have finals night where the teams will battle for The Cup!
Sunday, Feb. 24th we will have our Monthly 4-Strikes Tournament at 4PM at North End Pub, and the Indiana Matchplay Championship will be on the line! The winner of the tournament takes home the belt! $1 entry fee to play in the tournament.
Then we will kick off a new individual season Thursday, March 7th at 8 PM. Our new season we are teaming up with locations around the state to form the Hoosier Open Pinball Super-League (HOPS). That means when playing at North End Pub not only are you earning points against your friends there, but you are competing with players from Fort Wayne, The Region, and Evansville as well. The season lasts 8 weeks and at the end, the top players from each location get invited to play in a tournament of champions. I will update everyone with more information in the coming weeks!
Here are the current Team League standings!
First Place is Pindemonium Zwei with three wins and 21 total points. Second place are the Region Rats with 2 wins and 16 points, and trailing just behind them is RIP Tommy B also with 2 wins, but only 15 team points. Currently in fourth are the reigning champions Super Jackpots with 1 win and 13 points, closely followed by The Doom Room who hold a head to head victory over the Super Jackpots but only have 11 points to currently go with their 1 win. Coming up in the rear are the Pull & Pray team currently with no wins and 5 points on the season. We have two games left for each team.
Due to Valentines Day next Thursday we are going to cancel team league and instead hold a doubleheader night the following week on February 21st so please make sure that all teams can show up that night and we will wrap up the regular season. Finals night will take place on February 28th where the top 2 teams will face off to win the Team League Cup! The next two teams battle for 3rd, and the bottom two teams fight to not claim the shame of the season.
Also as a reminder, the selfie games for this month are The Shadow and Monster Bash, you have all month long to get scores entered on those games. Here are the current standings for that tournament.
Lastly, there is a big tournament at Tappers in Indianapolis this Sunday. The Indiana Matchplay State Championship title belt is being defended by current Champion Scott Elliott. Everyone is obviously encouraged to come and take a shot at winning the title! Tournament starts at 5PM, be there or be square!
It’s that time of the week again, get down to North End Pub tonight for some free pinball! We will be dropping off a new game that will only be visiting for a few weeks called Wild Fyre, way cheaper, more fun, and more real than the FYRE Festival ever was!
Also, remember FREE PLAY WEDNESDAY is a great time to get your scores entered on The Shadow and Monster Bash for this month’s Selfie Tournament. Take a picture of your score and submit it online or feel free to text it to me or post it to our Facebook Page to get it entered for your chance to play in the finals!
Tomorrow night we also have Team League so a great chance to get in some practice with your friends this evening!
Just a quick update to the February Selfie Tournament, the games are now The Shadow and Monster Bash!
Stingray won’t be able to make it down for a few more days so we wanted everyone to be able to get this month in gear especially since it is a short month.
Here is a tutorial on The Shadow from world Champion Bowen Kerins.
Remember you can enter scores at any time throughout the month, and the finals will be at 6PM the first Monday of March.
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.
