The River City Pinball league will kick off our Spring Season April 5th, 2018 at 7:00pm with a dedicated night for league orientation. If you're new to competitive pinball, or just want to see what we're all about, we'd love for you to join us for a no commitment night of pinball.

The league officially starts April 12th, 2018 at 7:00pm. The league runs for a total of 9 weeks, 8 weeks of regular play followed by a finals week. We follow the FSPA rule set and use the PAPA online scoring system. This is an IFPA registered league.

Registration fee is $25 for returning players and $20 for new players. Bring a friend and we'll take $5 off your registration fee for each friend you refer.

We play all of our games at the River City Blues Club, located at 819 South Cameron Street, Harrisburg PA 17104. 100% of the registration fees are returned in the form of trophies and cash prizes.

You can visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/rivercitypinball or find us on the web at http://www.rivercitypinball.com

I can be reached via email at director@rivercitypinball.com if you have any questions.

The current lineup is Guardians of the Galaxy, Walking Dead, Star Wars (Stern), Theatre of Magic, Rolling Stones and GhostBusters. There *might* be a new game coming, but I'm going to keep that a secret so it's a surprise if things pan out.

Last I heard, the operator was calling Cointaker to check on availability.

I play there are three times a month. I always see the scores. I think about joining but I travel for work and don't know if I could make it every time.

jgel, No worries! The League allows for pre-plays, so if you miss you can still have scores on the night you miss.

Wow, I feel like we already have every new stern - does this mean we are getting Aerosmith (Pro)

To follow up on what Grimes posted, we allow for a total of 3 weeks of preplays. It's more fun when everyone is there, but we understand that people have lives outside of pinball. Well, at least some people do.

Anyway, they are undated preplays, so you preplay at the beginning of the season and if for some reason you get called out of town, we just use your scores from your preplay.

We have a few people that are either on-call for their jobs, or travel for work a lot. You should really come check it out, I think you'd have a great time.

I'm not going to say what game , but last I heard the operator was on the phone with Melissa placing the order. We'll be trading in Guardians for TZ and the new game. So there will be 7 to play this season.

I have a pre-play question:

Me and a friend (another new league member) just completed 2 rounds of pre-play to submit this Thursday.
With the Twilight Zone machine being down, can I add two scores for that machine once it's online to play
at a later date, or am I S.O.L.?

League starts tonight!

Please try and be there by 6:45pm so we can get everyone registered and assigned to a group.

#23 3 months ago

We had a turnout of 26 people. I played terrible, but I had a lot going on with trying to meet the new members and keep thing rolling. Well, at least that's the excuse I'm using.

I only had a chance to grab two pictures. There is an AFM over to the side that I wasn't able to get in the picture.

You played terrible? Hell, I came in last place with only 3 points. But same as you was too busy chatting with all the new people and catching up with the regulars so didn't have my head in the game. Next week I'm shooting for 6 (out of 20) points!
Just in case anyone is still on the fence about joining up. You can still join up next week or the week after that and still have chance to make the seasonal playoffs. Actually you can join any time you want but the later you join the more it effects your chance to make the playoffs.
Nice touch posting a few pictures of the group. Also like to mention we now have about 25% female players and growing.

I had a blast last night & am looking forward to more. My only regret is not having done this much sooner.

Nathan, thanks again. Your passion for the game is obvious & efforts are much appreciated.

Scott, great to meet you last night. I did check out your collection, it gave me flashbacks reading the list.
I couldn't imagine having Flash, Playboy, Gorgar, Firepower, Xenon, Black Knight, & Eight Ball Deluxe all in one room.

I did the same thing. Waited over a year to join because I never considered my self a competition player. Or even a good player. Also thought it would be to hard to make the commitment to be there. I've onlyt had to miss a couple nights and wish I would have joined up sooner. It really is a blast playing with so many other that enjoy the hobby,
Was nice meeting you also. See ya Thursday night.

Some bonehead (might have been me) forgot to update the website until this morning.

Did you receive the email I sent out? If not, PM me your name / email address and I'll get you on the list.
