Kicking up the ol' PinCrossing thread to promote the Holiday League. We're running a three-week match-play session in December where you can use your Fall bank scores (or log new ones)!

Quoted from djreddog:

Can someone please confirm or deny that the next monthly Pincrossing is set for 1/14?

PinCrossing's going to be switching to a Quarterly Tournament format (as opposed to Monthly). We're still working out the details, but we envision the first one is going to take place in February.

Winter Pinball is Coming! PinCrossing's Winter League starts on Jan 4 with Orientation & Bank Score Night, and League Play starting on Jan 11.

#53 3 years ago
Quoted from djreddog:

Please explain what the hidden flipper game is. Thanks!

Basically, we throw a sheet of cardboard over the bottom portion of the glass so that you kind of know where it's going but you can't be sure. Jay did it on Joker Poker for the event. It covered up until right before the lane divider, so you had an idea if the ball went outlane or if you should take a guess on when to hit it because it went inlane.

It makes for a fun side game that people can do if they're waiting for the next round to start. I've attached a picture.

A few items to share:

We have a Rob Zombie's Spookshow International on site:

Winter League Session #2 starts tonight at 7pm. The points reset, so come on out and join us!

Session #1 Results:
Congrats to those who won their group match-ups during Session 1 and are in the running for end-of-season prizes: Brian Service (2 wins), Mike Kalinowski (2 wins), Michael Reimer, Daniel Gilbert, Joe Miller, John DeOliveira, Dennis Gilbert, David Bartholomew, Billy Gilbert, and Ryan Boyle.

Session #1 Top 5:
1. Nathaniel Gibson - 64pts
2. Pete Tsipouras - 62pts
3. Corey Hulse - 60pts
4. Jay Robinson - 58pts
5. Billy Gilbert - 56pts

#58 3 years ago
Quoted from VectorGamer:

Does the tournament on the 25th start at 11 AM sharp? I'm guessing the rules are different than how we played at the December tournament. Can someone post the rules for the tournament? I'm a newb and don't know what "limited entry qualifying" is.

We'll have eight machines designated for the tournament. Your best four games will count towards the standings, but the limited part is that you can only play up to 12 games. This is as opposed to unlimited entry tournaments, where you can keep buying as many entries and play as many times as you want during the qualifying. We limit it to prevent the lines for the games from backing up, and because we do everything in a day. Other tournaments may choose to do unlimited, and I've seen that where there is a much longer qualifying period.

Entries are two for $5, so if you buy four entries and put up mega scores, you don't need to pay for any more qualifying games. If you don't like your scores, you can buy entries two at the time, either until you're happy with the scores or until hit 12 entries. This also maxes out the entry you'd pay to $30.

Aside from the main tournament, we'll have the Selfie League and some other side games to play.

Let me know if there is any other clarification needed!

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to announce that we're going to be having a Progressive Strikes Tournament at PinCrossing on Wednesday, June 20 at 7:00pm.

This is a Progressive Strikes event. You will be paired in groups of three or four people and play a single game.

1st - 0 Strikes
2nd - 1 Strike
3rd - 2 Strikes
4th - 3 Strikes

Once you have seven strikes, you are out of the event.

When the tournament has just two participants left, the number of strikes will be reset to put the person with the most strikes in a "must win" situation. For example, let's say the last two players have 3 and 4 strikes, respectively. We will manually give both players 2 each so they now have 5 and 6. This will maintain the competitive advantage earned by the better player, but allow for the event to conclude in a quicker fashion.

Top Three will receive prizes.

#122 2 years ago

We now have a Firepower at PinCrossing, and we've modded it to include drop targets like the original prototypes!

We also have two events this week:

We are very excited for the Summer Classic this weekend! Weather pending, we're going to open up the patio and put some extra games out there. We've also got some cool Firepower-themed shirts for sale, and the event should be a lot of fun! We've upped the amount of the machines in the event and the number of tickets that you can purchase. More details can be found on the Facebook page.

We'll also be streaming the event thanks to RAGE TILT PINBALL:

WE ARE LOOKING FOR SCOREKEEPING VOLUNTEERS! Anyone who volunteers for an hour will receive 4 free tournament tickets (a $10 value). If you are interested, please drop me a line at and I'll provide access to the sign-up sheet.

We just wanted to share a few quick notes about the Summer Classic!

If you're interested to help with scorekeeping, please drop a line to and we'll send you a link to the sign-up document. We'll provide four free entries for every hour volunteered.

Qualifying is 11:30am to 4:30pm
Limited Best Game

Max 16 Tickets

We will use the same Best Game scoring that was present at PinFest (modified 97.5% Decay Rate) that offers a greater points reward for achieving a Top 12 position.

We are planning to have an expanded bank of available games in the pool (12 to 14), which is larger than at prior Summer Classics. The exact games will be announced the morning-of after we finish our final tech inspections. We will be using NeverDrains and are planning on using the self-queuing portion of the software.

Finals Start at 5:00pm

Top 16 make A Finals
Next 8 make B Finals
Next 8 make C Finals

A Division - PAPA-Style Finals on Three-Game Banks
B & C Division - Group Knockout 4-Strike Aussie Format (0/1/1/2)

With this format, we will evaluate to 100% TGP.

Finally, the t-shirts are in! We'll be selling them at the event.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend! Let us know if you have any questions.

Kicking up an old thread to mention two upcoming events:

Flip Frenzy Tournament on Wednesday, August 21 ->

We're also revitalizing the League format to be different than what has been run the past few years. ->

The regular season will run across five different one-night sessions. Your best three nights count towards the season standings, and a Finals Night will be held among all competitors split into A, B, and C Divisions.

It's still a match-play format where you will play four different machines and be grouped with various players. You will earn points based on your performance which will contribute to your placement in the end-of-season playoffs.

Session Dates:
September 4
September 11
September 25
October 2
October 9
Your best three of five nights will count towards your playoff standings.

Finals - October 23

League Nights start at 7:20pm

Cost for League Participation is $20 (plus venue coin drop) which will go to fund the end-of-season trophies, prize pool, and IFPA fees. Guests are allowed (and encouraged!) and will not have to pay the league fee until their second night of participation.

Full Rules document will be shared as we get closer to the season.
