    Saw it in some US comps, can't remember which ones but definitely a couple of times.
    Maybe it's just a modern equaliser.

    I agree. Pretty much all the American tournaments have given it the flick. Besides the unbalanced scoring, there are also a lot of issues around playfield validation. Apparently, it's possible to start a multi-ball without having validated the playfield.

    May the pinballs tumble in your direction!

    Hello everyone!

    BRISBANE PINBALL CLUB RESULTS - 13/2/2018
    Tuesday's meet was smack bang in the middle of a very busy 9-day pinball extravanganza (in particular for those that took the trek to Adelaide), and we still ended up with a wonderful 39 players in attendance.* Despite the busy calendar, the potential of storms and some players suffering illness, this was a great turn out, which got to see Rob McIntyre come away with his first ever tournament win.* Rob defeated high ranking players in Peter Watt, Chris Jennings and myself (not in that order) to jump to the top.* There were also some great results for Scott Piper and Emily Smith - both of whom reached the finals for any event to date for the first time!* A special shout out (with possibly some bias) goes to my brother Aaron, who narrowly missed his first-ever finals by just 1 point!

    Here are the final results from the night, which have been submitted to the IFPA this evening:

    1 Rob McIntyre
    2 Chris Jennings
    3 Jonathan Chabowski
    4 Peter Watt
    5 Jason Lambert
    6 Thibaut Allender
    7 Michi Henning
    8 Michael Saunders
    9 Chris Wade
    10 Jacob Paint
    11 Scott Piper
    12 Tony Woods
    13 David Clarke
    14 Matt Mullen
    15 Russell Dagger
    16 Emily Jane Smith
    17 Aaron Lambert
    18 Hollie Mills
    19 James Angliss
    20 Dan Olejniczak
    21 Nick Rusis
    22 Adam Wilson
    23 Steven Riding
    24 Dirk Booy
    25 Lucas Wheeler
    26 David Irving
    27 Gino Thimios
    28 David Stavleu
    29 Joe Groth
    30 Rob Burnes
    31 Gareth Hall

    35 Sean Davis AUS
    36 Ross Pattison

    Sorry for the late post. Brisbane Pinball Club will be on again tomorrow night at Netherworld. Qualifying starts from 4pm, and all games MUST be completed by 9pm. $15 entry, pay on arrival.

    Tomorrow night's machines will be done via a random drawing. It is possible that Dialed In may not be included in that line up, due to the fact that it is a long playing game. There will also be another side comp tomorrow night as well, which will also be chosen at random late tomorrow.

    See you there tomorrow night!

    Good morning all!

    Sorry for the really REALLY late email. It has been a VERY busy weekend.

    This is a friendly reminder that the next Brisbane Pinball Club meet is on tonight. All details remain the same:
    * Qualifying starts from 4pm. Players will be permitted to join up to 7.30pm.
    * All qualifying games must be started by no later than 9pm. After this time, no new games may be started.
    * Once qualifying has started, no warm-up games on the competition machines are allowed, however you are welcome to play other games to warm-up.
    * Entry fee is $15 per person. The Bring-a-friend promotion is still in place - new players can play for free if they invited by a BPC player.
    * If we end up with 32 qualifiers or more, the Top 16 will advance to finals. Any less than that, only the Top 8 players will go through.
    * Netherworld will have their Burger & chips deal available all evening for Brisbane Pinball players.

    Due to the delayed email, the machines for tonight's meet will again be selected at random. There will be no side comp on tonight, however I will sort out the previous 2 side comp winners prizes tonight (if you are there).

    The time has finally come for the 2nd demoralising, demonic endurance hell they call 'Death By Pinball'. The Netherworld will be closed to the public on this day to make way for the truly terrifying, torturous ritual - A 24 hour pinball marathon, not for the feint of heart. A ‘match play’ event, you’ll be pitted against Netherworld’s gnarliest denizens over many, many, many rounds until the early hours of the following day. In between rounds, you’ll be free to play Netherworld’s many machines, compete in a side comp or have a quick rest on the ‘stage pit of shame’.

    Special rewards will be given to those that actually survive the night. Each survivor will get a special Death By Pinball patch.

    When: Bad Saturday the 31st of March from 9am until 9am the following morning.

    Tickets: $100 each – comes with entry, a limited edition pin, limited edition t-shirt, 3 meals and 2 drinks. BYO snacks. Cash prizes for the top places!

    The bar will be open, though alcohol service will cease at 3am. The bar will be closed to the public for this event - Only those with tickets will be permitted entry. Tickets are limited!

    PINCADIA 'BELLES & CHIMES'
    Taken from the Pincadia Facebook page:

    "Pincadia proudly acknowledges International Women’s Day today. We are an equal rights, equal pay employer and have gender balance and equity with our staff. Currently however, there is an imbalance in pinball players – especially in competition. We want to encourage more women to play more pinball and we want them to be more empowered to compete in open pinball competitions if they choose.

    We are therefore excited to announce that Tanya Lowe is the Organiser and Pincadia is the patron of the first Australian Chapter of Belles and Chimes – Belles and Chimes Brisbane. Our mission is to provide a fun, social environment for women to play pinball together.

    We will be launching a series of “girls only” events every second Monday night – next meet is Monday the 26th of March at 7:00 pm. The night will open with a short coaching session that will cover basic skills of pinball play. We will also explain the rule sets of various games and possible strategies to get the best scores. Selected machines will be set on free play for the coaching and competition event and it promises to be a great social event where you can have fun and win prizes. The cost is just $10. Pre-register now and bring a group of friends!"

    Well done to Tanya and everyone involved for starting up Brisbane's Belles & Chimes for the ladies. We hope everything goes well!

    COOLY CLASSIC & BRISBANE MASTERS
    Both Flip Frenzies at the Brisbane Masters are now confirmed to be full. Thank you to everyone for their continued support of the bigger scale events in South East QLD! We are officially taking reserves for both of those events, in case of possible last-minute drop outs. We suggest to put forward your payment for these events when you can, in particular for the Brisbane Masters event, to secure your spot in the players listing.

    There is still plenty of space available for the other Brisbane Masters and for all Cooly Classic events if you would like to register for those as well.

    This year, both the Cooly Classic and Brisbane Masters go international, with players from New Zealand and the U.S. already registering! And for the ladies out there, don't forget that the Cooly Classic also includes the 2nd Annual Australian Women's Championship to be held on Friday 18th May from 6.30pm. This is open to ANY female players, no matter your skill level or number of previous competitions played.
