Federation and Gestalt’s “Balls of Steel” SF Beer Week Pinball Tournament


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!


24-Hour Pinball Battle of San Francisco


pinball2015_1053fEver 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!

Stern Star Wars pinball launch party!


Thanks to everyone who came out for the launch party!   ANM won by using the force in one of his matches (see below).  In second was Josh Lehan, followed by Brian O’Neill in 3rd and Janel Valdez in 4th! (Full results posted on the IFPA website)pinball2017_0525pinball2017_0517pinball2017_0514

Michael Jones had the best outfit and helped Han escape Cloud City while Julie sported her Empire Kicks Back Star Wars themed kickball league shirt!  And of course Andrei had a stormtrooper on his shirt so I guess the Dark Side won! 🙂
