Register for the Spring 2018 Buffalo Pinball Team League

UPDATE: Team League is officially full! See you in February!

It’s that time again! The spring 2018 Buffalo Pinball Team League will kick off on Wednesday, Feb. 7. This is a casual, self-officiating league that will run for eight weeks. Teams will be composed of 4-6 players.

This is a traveling league around the greater Buffalo area.  Each team will select a “home” location, where they will play at least three of their matches during the season. Locations need a minimum of three pinball machines, and the following locations are available for a team to choose (number denotes max number of teams that can choose that location):

  1. GameOn LAN:  3 teams
    3660 Delaware Ave., Tonawanda
    Claimed by: Glass Off All Stars, Double Danger Zone, Skill Shot Sharks
  2. Buffalo Riverworks:  3 teams
    359 Ganson St., Buffalo
  3. Misuta Chows*:  2 teams
    521 Main St., Buffalo
    Claimed by: Pin Brawlers, 4V2C
  4. Lafayette Brewing Company:  1 team
    391 Washington St., Buffalo
  5. Electric Ave.:  1 team
    300 Ellicott St., Buffalo
  6. Thin Man Brewery:  1 team
    492 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo
    Claimed by: Pin Pin Ain’t Easy

*Misuta Chows is expected to open in February/March. If it’s not open at the the start of league, teams that choose this location will be randomly assigned to other locations until Misuta Chows opens.

Location selection is determined by a first-come, first-served basis.  In other words, register your team and select your location as soon as possible to secure your ideal spot.

The league is limited to 10 teams, and needs an even number to run.  For example, if we only get 9 teams, then the last team that registered (the 9th team), would be out and it would be an 8 team season.

This league is free, minus the money to coin-up the machines.

To register, please email kaydeross716@gmail.com with your team name, captain, players, and preferred team location by Feb. 1.

Support the Buffalo Pinball Patreon

Buffalo Pinball has been sharing live pinball gameplay, tutorials, and knowledge since February 2015.  We’re streaming pinball live on Twitch five days of week.  We also have a successful pinball podcast, “Bro, do you even talk pinball?”, that we create each month.  And if that’s not enough, we run all the pinball tournaments and leagues in Buffalo.  Sometimes, we even sleep.

Several of our fans asked that we create a Patreon page and we’re happy to oblige.  Creating all this content is meaningful for us, but it can also be expensive and exhausting.

That’s why we’d like to ask you to consider supporting us by donating monthly to the cause.  Donations are a way of thanking us.  It shows that you value what we do and want us to continue.

When we reach a minimum of 200 patrons a month, we’ll fly out to the 2017 Pinball Expo and will do a panel discussion (provided we’re given the opportunity).
