Personally I’m not a big selfie guy, but San Francisco now has a Super Selfie Pinball League!
What is a super selfie league?
The way this league works is that you have several weeks to compete and submit selfies/scores (each season may last a different amount of time). This means you can put in as many entries/selfies as you want while the tournament season is open.
This is to encourage more location play and help the operators out and show locations that pinball can bring people in and hopefully help support those businesses (so buy beer, food or go see a movie, depending on the location, tip well, and please let the business know that you came to play b/c of Super Selfie Pinball League too).
Also you will earn WPPRs (World Pinball Player Ranking Points) as this has been endorsed by the IFPA so if you aren’t already an internationally ranked pinball player, you will be afterwards!
Feb 9-16, 2018 @ Gestalt – This week long competition gives you the chance to beat Federation’s head brewer, Aram, at his third favorite thing: pinball. He has been playing all six machines at Gestalt and setting the score for you to best. Any person to beat Arams score on any given machine wins a free beer (limit one beer/game/person/day)! Whoever has the highest combined score wins the grand prize with all kinds of Federation loot.
No playoffs! You can submit scores here and up to six scores count!
It’s time to check out the latest Stern pinball machine – Guardians of the Galaxy! We’re having a launch party just before City Champ so warm up for the big PAPA Circuit Major the night before!
The Bay Area already has the top spot secured for the next Women’s World Championships but we’d love to see even more women make the cutoff. IFPA has expanded the field to 24 and if you don’t think you can make it but are in striking range this tournament will give you another shot as we’re working to make it full value!
The last time I played location pinball in Auburn, AL was at Foy Union on a Taxi machine in the 20th Century. While we still don’t have location pinball in town, we’re hosting a pinball tournament on Dec. 23rd, 2017!
So for Season 20 we’re throwing in a twist to mix things up a bit and celebrate 20 months and seasons of the SFSSL! Thanks to everyone who’s participated so far!
Everything else will be standard but the twists are:
Sunday October 15, 2017 @ 1pm at The Myriad
$10 entry – proceeds go to Andrew
drink specials and giveaways!
Ever wanted to test your limits of playing pinball? Or want to support a great children’s hospital? This tournament is open to all levels and is more focused as a fundraiser for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital where they already have one pinball machine in the “teen lounge” and have a pinball world champion on staff as well!
Help us raise some more funds as part of the Extra Life Gaming Marathon and have fun while you’re at it!
All the latest will be posted on the Facebook page here!
Thanks to everyone who came out! Congrats to Robin Lassonde who took first pressed closely by Terri Lynn Delk in 2nd, Daylene Langum in 3rd and Janel Valdez rounding out the top four!
Play pinball at the newest Stern Army location: The Myriad! And play in a really fun format: Critical Hit – combining some card play and pinball together in a chaotic, fun format!
Thanks to everyone who came out for the launch party! ANM won by using the force in one of his matches (see below). In second was Josh Lehan, followed by Brian O’Neill in 3rd and Janel Valdez in 4th! (Full results posted on the IFPA website)
Michael Jones had the best outfit and helped Han escape Cloud City while Julie sported her Empire Kicks Back Star Wars themed kickball league shirt! And of course Andrei had a stormtrooper on his shirt so I guess the Dark Side won! 🙂
