Season 12 was our biggest yet – thanks to everyone who played! Congrats to PER for winning! There was a tie for second between Brian O’Neill and Gene X Hwang with Aaron Nelson finishing in fourth. In the B-Division, Gen Egea beat out Alex Marks to take the title – congrats!
Welcome to Season 12! All locations are available for play all month long and are listed below. Players with 50% or more of qualifying games that count will count in the tournament. So this month six (6) machines count so you have to play three (3) or else you won’t be counted in the tournament results submission at all.
Coaching is again 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 starting on March 1st, 2017.
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 March 31st, 2017). 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.
Everyone who plays at least 3-games will make playoffs this 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.
