    2017 Brisbane Pinball Club

    Info for the 2017 season will be released shortly.
    Based on feedback from the players, we will be reverting back to holding monthly events, and the format has been changed.

    Full information will be posted once IFPA approval comes through.

    Cheers,
    Lambo

    I think Netherworld could be worth pursuing. Opens this Saturday. 15 pins. Located in the valley.

    This may not come as much of a surprise to you all, but the Brisbane Pinball Club will be moving to the wonderful Netherworld at Fortitude Valley in 2017. For those that don't know, Netherworld can be found on the corner of Brunswick St & St Pauls Tce and has 15 pinballs, 25 arcades, board games, consoles and more! 2017 is shaping up to be huge!

    We will be changing to the 3rd Tuesday of every month, starting in February (2nd Tues in September to avoid school holidays). Our first meet at the Barcade will be on Tuesday 21st February.

    We will also reverting back to monthly tournaments, which means that results will be submitted to IFPA after each month's meet. This should help grow participants at each meet.

    2017 also sees the return of the Bring a friend offer. New players to the BPC introduced by an existing player will receive their first meet for FREE. If the new player returns for a 2nd meet, you will receive your next meet for FREE. Feel free to ask if you have any questions in regards to this offer.

    FORMAT: (subject to change each month to suit timing)

    Qualifying...
    * 4pm-8.30pm approx.
    * Play 8 games in Herb style qualifying.
    * Comp. games to be chosen by players (see below)
    * Top 8 players advance to NRL/AFL finals format.

    Final...
    * Top 8 players advance to best of 3 head to head matches according to NRL finals format.
    * Ties for seedings will be broken the player with the highest ranked machine.
    * Top 4 players receive double chance in first round.
    * Highest seed chooses which game to play, other player chooses play order. All games in that match are played on the same machine and play order alternates each game.
    * Winner is the last remaining player.

    There will be cash and prizes to be won at each meet, plus the winner will also pick up a bonus award (to be revealed soon).

    Cost for each meet has not changed for 2017 and will remain at $15 per player.

    The machines used for each meet will be chosen by the players before each meet (similar to Pinball HQ meets). With 15 machines to choose from, nominations for machines will open the day before each monthly meet. Players will be able to choose one machine to add to the competition via email, Facebook, or this thread, until we have 8 machines confirmed.

    The current machine list at Netherworld is as follows:
    * Tales from the crypt
    * Batman: Dark knight
    * Pin*bot
    * Flash Gordon
    * Revenge from mars
    * Funhouse
    * Tommy
    * Metallica Pro
    * Whirlwind
    * Magic Castle
    * Space Invaders
    * The Addams Family
    * The Twilight Zone
    * Ghostbusters Pro
    * Trident

    We are really looking forward to this year of pinball. We hope you are too and hope to see you on the 21st Feb. Feel free to message or call me anytime if you have any questions.

    P.S. I'm still working on the shirts from the 2016 season. I hope to keep everyone posted with updates as soon as i can. Sorry for the delays.

    Cheers,
    Lambo

    Aww yiss!

    Dates locked in early, including the September variance. Love the earlier starting time.

    Who owns the machines?

    Do they have a tech on site?
