I got lucky at work and my company has decided to do a team building party that involves pinball. We will be going to Joystix here in Houston http://www.joystixamusements.com/. There’s going to be a mix of a few older folks (like me) and a bunch of younger folks that may have never seen or played pinball before. I’m looking for some easy 2 player team and 4 player team competitions. It’s going to be a fun, non-serious night that might even get some new people interested in pinball.
Some of the friendly competitions I’m thinking about are:
One handed pinball – everyone plays 3 balls on the same machine using only one hand and records the score. High score wins.
Team flippers – 2 player teams are picked at random and one person plays the left flipper and the other plays the right flipper. High score on the same machine wins.
Tommy pinball – 2 player teams are picked at random. One person is blindfolded and the other has to tell them when to flip. High score on the same machine wins.
What other fun contests can you guys think of? Take a look at the game lineup at Joystix and let me know what games would be good candidates for these kind of competitions (not excessively long ball times, straight forward rules etc). The grand prize will probably be a cheap, party store trophy, some free drink tickets but best of all, bragging rights.
Thanks for your help.
