    Creating this thread as a place to discuss the thriving pinball scene in the DMV. We've seen a huge explosion of locations and events in the last few years, to the point that you can play in an event almost every night of the week.

    FSPA leagues: www.fspazone.org

    If you are on Twitter, I try to post content relevant to DC/MD/VA area, and not just FSPA league stuff. I auto-post updates to PinballMap's DC and Balt regions. A good way to keep track of new location games in the region.

    We have just started a group here in Southern Maryland. We created a FB Group, just search SoMD Pinball on FB and you will find us there.

    If you are close to Alexandria or Arlington, VA shoot me a PM as I like to have the locals over occasionally and play/talk pinball. Always looking to meet more locals.

    Thanks for starting this thread. It’s great not to have to feel guilty anymore about posting location info in the local sale thread!

    Knockout tournament tonight at VUK in Bethesda @ 7!

    Brand new Iron Maiden Premium in the lineup, good pizza, beer and ice cream.

    I know that this would be a major drive for most of you, but I thought I would throw it out there anyway: our fourth season will be starting up again in September, so even if you are in the Morgantown/Fairmont, WV area on a Tuesday night and just want to play one night in the League, it would be great to have you stop by!

    You've won your IFPA State Championship on Saturday, celebrated all night, and slept all day. It's time defend your title with the debut of Sunday Night Pinball at VUK in beautiful downtown Bethesda, MD!

    https://www.facebook.com/events/2229259134021609/

    Current lineup:

    Addams Family
    Aerosmith Pro
    Attack from Mars remake
    Deadpool Pro
    F-14 Tomcat
    Game of Thrones Pro
    Hot Tip (EM)
    Iron Maiden Premium
    Metallica Premium
    Monster Bash remake
    Star Trek Pro
    Walking Dead Pro

    The adrenaline-fuelled, IFPA-sanctioned weekly two-strike pinball tournament will start at 7 PM sharp, right after the FSPA league finishes.

    The tournament will be played in matches of four player groups, in which the 3rd and 4th place scores will take a strike. In the event of an uneven split and we have three player groups, only the 3rd place score will take a strike. Two strikes and you're out, and the last person standing wins!

    Buy-in is $5, with one dollar of the entry fee going to the IFPA as a fee. The remaining pot will be paid out to the top four in a 40-30-20-10 distribution.There will be an optional $5 extra side pot for those who would like to enter. All extra balls earned must be plunged.

    We will play every Sunday from January 20th to March 31st, with the exception of February 3 (Super Bowl Sunday).

    We welcome all players, not just those playing in the FSPA league, so come on out, eat some pizza and ice cream, and play some pinball!

    Get there early to practice the MBr kickout and register!
