Randy's Pin Bin Four Strike Tournament - April 27th
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:47:35 AM »
Tournament time!

After nearly five years, it is time to hold another event at my house.  Randy's Pin Bin, Acme Arcade, Randy Cheese....  whatever you want to call it is proud
to present a 4 strikes tournament for IFPA points.  Typical rules will apply -  Finish 1st or 2nd in your group and you are safe.   Otherwise you get a strike.
Four strikes and you are out of the tournament.  We play until we have a sole survivor.

Since this tourney will be held in my house where there are more pinballs than seats, I will have to ask that anyone who comes must play.  I will be providing pizza,
my usual mountain of chips/salsa/queso, and soft drinks/water/tea.  Please bring any dessert, snacks, etc. that you may want. BYOB if so desired :-)  Also please RSVP
to my email address (compran@yahoo.com) that you would like to attend as I will need to cap the number of players at 25 or so.  Once it gets closer to tournament time,
I will send an email with my address and any other information that may be needed.

Cool way to end Passover.  :D

I'll have to see what I have going on, but I'm definitely interested.
How many points is "TILT"?

It would be great to see you Chris!   The pinball dark side has taken over around here and pushed the remaining arcade machines to the garage.  Hope to create a garcade type situation for them someday :-)

i know how it goes...i still want your mat mania...lol.

i had 12 arcades in the gameroom, with 1 pinball.

now, gameroom is 9 pinballs with 4 arcades, 6 arcades in the living room, 4 pinballs in my office, with excessive overflow in the garage...

it's a rough hobby. :P

Hey everyone!   Because of the enormous response, I will start adding names to a waitlist for anyone else who may be interested (so keep sending those requests in).  I will continue to respond to any and all messages.

Thanks everybody!

Hello everyone! First of all - thanks for the unbelievable response.  It is extremely humbling that so many people have shown an interest.  Because of the interest, I have decided to expand the tournament to 32 (good news).  This is a hard limit and I am sorry that there is just no way to take everyone (bad news).  For the ones that are "in", I will be communicating information regarding the tournament in the upcoming weeks (address, etc).  For the waitlist people, I will keep you in mind if there are any cancellations.  Thanks again for the support!
