Had a good night at Modern Pinball Superleague tonight.
Started at 630, Greg, Eric, Arthur and I snuck next door to the pub for a few drinks beforehand. Danni and I stayed there for a meal too, I recommend the place. The local guys were all playing in the weekly league, so we had an hour and a half to fill before the Superleague finals started.
They run the finals a little like Pingolf .. First to start a multiball wins. If you both start a multiball on say Ball 2, the higher score wins. If nobody starts a multiball, the highest score wins at the end of the game. Best of 3 games.
I was seeded tenth so I got first game choice .. Went with Mustang and won that one. Then I played a higher seed and they chose SWE1 and we had a great matchup, first game was a very close loss, second game I got 80m and cleaned up, third game was 36m to 35m to him. Close!! First loss.
Then you go on the loser side of the draw, you have 1 game. Lose and you're done. I got a win on Fish Tales and Striker Extreme, then lost to Francesco on SWE1 again. I think I finished up 7th or 8th? Not bad for my first attempt I guess, there were 270 entrants this month.
Danni got top 20 I think, I haven't seen the results. She got knocked out by Steve Bowden.
Lots of nice guys there, NYC has a great scene happening. Thanks to everyone for making us welcome!
Last day in NYC today ... Off to Six Flags Great Adventure to do some coasters tomorrow!!
