For Season Six we are going to have two periods to play your games and due to its popularity we’re again having the B-Division/expanded playoffs with special prizes for new players!  One location, Gestalt, will be available for play all season to make things easier for folks and because of the amount of machines there and their long hours.

Also continuing this season is that coaching is allowed during play so you can help each other out and say what’s lit and what to go for.  This is primarily to encourage new folks who are learning pinball and since it is a selfie league it’s hard to police it anyhow so coach away!


You can play any time during the periods listed below starting on September 4th, 2016.

You also must submit scores within 48-hours of playing  and at the end of the season the deadline for submitting is an hour after the season closes so if you don’t submit by then, your score may not be counted (this pertains only to games you might be playing up until 11:59pm on September 30th). Note: Your game must FINISH before midnight so if you start a game at 11:55pm and it goes past midnight when you can finally take your selfie, that will not count for that week.

Finals we are still finalizing the location but will post it here shortly.  The top 20 (unless we have less than 20-players in total) will make finals again this season!

Depending on the actual # of players in the season, the finals format will vary but the top four seeds will likely get a bye unless we have player restrictions that affect that (we will update the info here before the end of the season).

We will play PAPA style in groups of four with 7-5-3-1 scoring (3-games per round).  The top two will advance each round of play until there is only one group of four left.  There will be an elimination round first but more details about that will be revealed closer to the end of the season.

As far as rules of play, we will follow the joint IFPA/PAPA ruleset.  Full rules are posted at this link – all players are responsible to know the rules so if you are unsure about something, check that rules page as rules updates may occur which you will be responsible for…  Also Eric Wagensonner is also an official so you can consult him for rulings as well.

Locations will vary across the weeks of open play (use PinballMap to see what machines are there and to report issues) so check the schedule above.
