Come out and join us for a quick and fun pinball tournament to benefit a great cause! If you’ve never played competitive pinball before, this is a great opportunity to see what it’s all about. Here are the details:
Where: Pocketeer Billiards and Bar, 2444 Clinton St., Buffalo, NY 14224
Format: Format: 9 hole pin-golf tournament. Players strive to achieve a target score on each machine. For example, if the target score is reached on the 1st ball, the player gets a “1” for that machine. The 2nd ball, a “2”. The 3rd, a “3”. If the player fails to achieve the target score, he/she gets a “4” for that machine. 9 machines will be played in total and the player with the lowest score total for the tournament will be the winner.
If a player achieves the target score on a machine in less than 3 balls, the player does not have to play the rest of the balls. That player is done with the machine and will move onto the next machine (with his/her group).
If 3 balls are played and the target score is not reached, the player is then finished with that machine and moves on to the next machine (with his/her group).
Total time of tournament is expected to be less than 2 hours. No playoffs, only tie-breakers.
– A Division for players ranked 1-5,000 in the IFPA or open to anyone who wants to earn IFPA World Pinball Player Ranking points.
– B Division for casual players.
Half of all money collected will benefit the Pinball Outreach Project, which shares the joy of pinball with children in need.
Cost: $15 for A Division, $10 for B Division. Games will be on coin drop so be sure to bring money to play the games as well.
OPEN TO ALL!
