Congrats to Brian O’Neill who beat out Per in a tiebreaker on Ghostbusters to become the S13 champion!  B-Division was won by Tim Juchinski and thanks to all the venues for hosting pinball and donating prizes for our players!

Welcome to Season 13!  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 (and for IFPA ranking purposes).  This month six (6) machines count so you have to play a minimum of 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!

When?

You can play any time starting on April 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 April 30th, 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!

Season 13: 4/1/17 – 4/30/17 – Top 6 scores/games included – choose from:

  • Alamo Drafthouse: Mousin’ Around, The Big Lebowski, Johhn Mnemonic
  • Brewcade: Demolition Man, The Addams Family, Spider-Man
  • Buzzworks: Black Rose, Guns’n’Roses, Star Trek TNG
  • Free Gold Watch: Iron Man, Stars, Royal Rumble
  • Gestalt: The Walking Dead, Can Crusher, Aerosmith, Dr. Who
  • The Myriad: Theatre of Magic, Twilight Zone, Creature from the Black Lagoon

PLAYOFFS:  Sunday May 14th @ 1 pm @ Gestalt – everyone who submits scores on three different machines is eligible for the playoffs.  Like Season 12 we will have an initial round to break down the players into A and B Divisions and the top four will get a bye.


Standings

Live standings will always be available on the MatchPlay.events website here!


How?
