Players will be put into random groups of 4 and then play on a random machine. The players with the two lowest scores get a strike, in 3 player groups only the lowest score gets a strike. Once you have two strikes you are out.

The tournament features a survivor style with 2 strikes so everyone can enjoy multiple games! You don't need to be the highest score in your group to advance and players with strikes will be grouped together in following rounds to help balance group skill levels.
1st = 40%
2nd = 30%
3rd = 20%
4th = 10%
Plus a mystery translite to be given away via random draw

Built on player feedback
We have a weekly pinball league that meets THURSDAY nights at 7:30P. The format is simple: spend your evening playing 5 different games along with others grouped within your skill level! Eat, Drink, and Flip Out!
We offer 3 sessions throughout the year: fall, winter, and spring. Feel free to join any league at ANY TIME!
A $20 per session entry fee is collected at the beginning of the season that is used for the FUN Tournament at the end of the season. 100% of this is paid back into the league.
$5 or less depending on which games you play that week.
What if I can't commit every week?
Worried about a 10 week commitment? Need to miss a week? Don't fret! Our league offer 1 DROP WEEK, allowing you to drop your lowest score. Giving this flexibility helps YOU in the event real life interferes with pinball! All that we ask is that you notify us if you will be unable to make it in.
