Round 7

60 members and 3 guests came to play in this round. Flor and Richard came by with their newborn too! A handful of members were away in Pittsburgh competing in PAPA 20, and we wish them the best of luck!

Round 6

73 players joined the fun! From now on the standings will be based on your adjusted score, meaning that the 2 worst scores are dropped. Good luck everyone!

Round 5

81 players graced the concrete floors of FGW on an evening where one guest came all the way from New Jersey! Jersey Jack brought his newest creation, Dialed In, designed by Pat Lawlor, to California. It’ll be operated by Sammy, and we’re most grateful for the opportunity to play this fun looking game.

Next round will be played on March 22nd.

Round 4

Another night, another record. 83 pinball playing folks showed up for league this time around!

We gave Tony’s Slice House a shot, and except for GrubHubs botching of instructions to bring plates and napkins, it was a hit according to many members.

Next round will be on March 8th. See you!

 

Wanna bring your pooch with you when you shop for groceries? Not a problem, here’s a cart just for that! (Airfare to Italy not included.)

Round 3

Round 3 saw 77 players come through the door to FGW. Unfortunately I missed the round due to a pizza eating tour, but I’m sure plenty of fun was had!

Human is regulation size.

 

See you for round 4 on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd!

Round 2

A new attendance record for the SFPD was set with 81 people coming to have fun at FGW! Thank you to all participants for making this such a fun event.

Long time members Eric and Louise were nice enough to come by with the newest member of the pinball family: Daniel!

 

The new playoff format is now decided upon, and it’s visible under the Rules tab.

Next round is on February 8th!

Round 1

78 players came out for the season 9 opener! It was great fun to see so many new faces (we have 11 rookies this season) and to have a fun time playing pinball again. The big news for the season is that we now don’t use a random draw anymore. Instead, the setting on the MatchPlay software is “balanced”, which means that it tries to pair you with people that you have not previously played before during the season. In theory, you could play 30 different players (10 rounds x 3 players) during the season! Thanks to Andreas for implementing this in MP. I think it’ll make the league better.

I’m still working on the playoff format, but it’s coming together. For a sneak preview, go to the rules tab and scroll down.

If you are curious as to when pizza will be served, go to the schedule tab!

See you on Jan 25th!
