We’re stoked to kick off a brand new, casual pinball league at one of the hottest spots in Buffalo, Misuta Chow’s! Here’s the info:
Where: Misuta Chow’s, 521 Main St., Buffalo
When: 6-10 p.m. on Sept 11, Oct. 9, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11 (show up at any time to play the three games for the month)
How it works: Intended to be a casual league, just show up any time between 6-10 p.m. to play the three games selected for that month.
Each player will have two attempts per machine with their highest score counting towards that month’s standings. Scores will be ranked using linear scoring (100, 99, 98, 97, 96…and so on)
Overall standings will be tabulated after each meetup and used to determine final playoff seedings (best three months out of four).
Cost is $5 to enter each month (+ coindrop) and the top three players of each month will be paid out accordingly (percentage of overall entry fees):
- 3-7 players: 50/40/10
- 8-12 players: 40/30/20/10
- 13-16 players: 30/25/15/15/10 + 5 paid to a random winner
- 17+ players 25/22/18/15/10/5 + 5 paid to a random winner
Note: $5 each month + $1 collected only ONCE per season for IFPA submission
To encourage new players to come out and give pinball a try, there will be a random award (Miusta Chow’s ‘swag’/bar tab) given away.
All rules and other pertinent information (standings, rules, etc.) about the league are available on the new Misuta Chow’s League page.
