    The people of Vancouver, BC, Canada would like to invite you to the first ever Terminal City Pinball Championships (TCPC)!

    The TCPC will be held on the first weekend of October 2019 (4th-6th) and will feature a “Super Stacked” 3 strike party tournament on the Friday night followed by a huge TCPC matchplay tournament on the Saturday, with a PAPA-style finals on the Sunday. All ages and skill levels welcome!

    12 Kings Pub will be the spot where it all goes down! We plan to bring in around 20 machines of all eras, to the huge back room where we will be able to play and compete to determine who the very first Terminal City Pinball Champion will be!

    Please see the details below and I hope to see you in Vancouver come October!
