Chicago Pinball Tournaments
I'm Anna, and I like pinball. This space is for me to announce different Sunday tournaments in the Chicago area.
Summer Selfie League - Pinball Chicago 2019
Pinball Chicago's Team League  has finished their 2019 Spring Season, but we all want to play more pinball! I've setup a Selfie League to get us out and playing (as if we need the push.)
  • Please visit https://matchplay.events/live/ykejq to register, submit scores and to follow the standings and look at game score info. A player can qualify at any of the arenas listed on Match Play by submitting a selfie (picture of their score).
  • You must play at the location of the machine listed in the arena list on Match Play. Each machine has a different location.
  • The best 5 games at count for your total score. 
  • The qualifying scoring will be 100-90-85-84-83... such that the best possible score is 500.
  • The top 4 players will earn an extra strike for the Final except the top seed will get 2 extra strikes.
  • In the case of an exact tie for the top four spots, a one game playoff at finals will be utilized.
  • Finals format will be a group strikes tournament held at the Pinball Chicago Season Opener in early Fall. (Possibly August 26th).
  • The final discretion on qualifying submissions and rulings during qualifying and finals is that of the tournament director. The finals will use the official IFPA/PAPA ruleset
  • Play all your extra balls tho.
Anyone caught maliciously cheating during qualifying will have their scores voided and possibly excluded from the finals.
Don't:  
  • Post scores that aren't yours
  • Egregiously withhold achieved scores to gain an advantage
  • Post scores that were achieved with death saves and/or bangbacks
  • Submit scores that were achieved before the Selfie League started: May 20th 2019
  • Submit scores that were not achieved at the specified location
Finals Information:
  • The Finals for this Selfie League will happen at the Pinball Chicago Season Opener.
  • It will be a three strike, Fair Strikes Knockout.  (0 strikes for 1st, 1 strike for 2nd/3rd, 2 strikes for 4th)
  • First Place in the Selfie League will get 2 extra strikes, giving them 5 strikes.
  • Second, Third and Fourth place in Selfie League will get 1 extra strike, giving them 4 strikes each.

Summertime Pinball Day
Ladies! Lets do this!
We just had a long weekend, lets top it off with a day of pinball just with the girls (and Jack Danger.)

Jack Danger will be in the secret location with us and has agreed to stream the event! I think this is super exciting as it's very rare to have a woman's event streamed like this. Thank you Jack!

For those of you that are weary of the internet and/or being on camera, please reach out to me directly and we can try and accommodate you. This is a event for us, so I want us all to be comfortable!

This will be a charity event for Chicago Period Project.

I went to Jack's Studio yesterday and it is awesome!
There is a restroom and a fridge. I'll probably bring some lawn chairs and a table for the back but it's a pretty big place.

Tentative Machine List:
Bank 1:
Tic Tac Toe (EM)
Batman 66

Bank 2:
Flame of Athen's (Sitdown)
Iron Maiden

Bank 3:
JackBot
Munsters

Bank 4:
Sharpshooter
Gaurdians of the Galaxy

Bank 5:
Breakshot
Deadpool

Bank 6:
Star Wars
(Maybe) Tic Tac Toe Again
(Maybe) Blackout
(Maybe) Tommy

 If you are currently in the going list you are gauranteed a spot. If we actually get more than 24 ladies then we'll figure something out (Currently limited by banks.)

For people who care about TGP, this will be a 100% event.
For people who do not care, this will be a 100% awesome event.

I love you all.
