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 regular season may last a different amount of time, but typically is for a calendar month). 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!
Apparently in Chicago if you aren’t in the private home league and aside from Expo, there aren’t a ton of WPPRs up for grabs. BEK is in town and has a hunger for fresh 2019 WPPRs. Help her out – or prevent her from stealing our organic, free-range California WPPRs – and harvest your own and enjoy some pinball!
Exact format, etc will be finalized later.
WPPR v5.5 is in effect starting on New Years Day and we’re gonna have a tournament to celebrate! Get a head start on the California State Championship Series, or just come out for some fun and learn how to play. Open to players of all skill levels and ages. $5 entry and cash paid out for top A and B-Division players.
Preliminary rounds will likely be a Flipper Frenzy format which means you’ll get in a lot of games and then we’ll do a group match play playoff but it will depend on the number of players, etc.
Sunday July 8th we’re hosting a tournament at Logan – more details to come!
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

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!
