Placeholder for now but most likely will be a tourney there as the newest Stern Army location… It’s likely we’ll do a Critical Hit tournament which you can find out more about below…
placeholder for now – more to come!
Congrats to Per who won in exciting fashion as Jared pushed him and was just 5 million points away from overtaking him on the final match on Twilight Zone! Robin Lassonde took third and Allison O’Neill continues her hot streak placing fourth! So great to see everyone there!
Welcome to Season 16! 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). Again 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 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 July 1st, 2017.
You also must submit scores within 48-hours of playing and at the end of the season the deadline for submitting is a half-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 July 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!
Season 16: 7/1/17 – 7/31/17 – Top 6 scores/games included – choose from:
- Alamo Drafthouse: Jonny Mnemonic, The Big Lebowski, Pinball Magic, Scared Stiff
- Brewcade: Demolition Man, Spider-Man
- Buzzworks: America’s Most Haunted, Ghostbusters, Indy 500

PLAYOFFS: August 13th @ Gestalt @ 1pm (the Star Wars launch party will coincide with this) – everyone who submits scores on three different machines is eligible for the playoffs. Like Season 15 we will have an initial round to break down the players into A and B Divisions and the top four will get a bye.
Live standings will always be available on the MatchPlay.events website here!
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.
