    I'd like to add my sincere thanks to Todd and Lisa for their hospitality and generosity in having us all into their home. I very much enjoyed yesterday's event with a fantastic collection of games, a great group of people, and delicious food. I look forward to the next event wherever it is and I'll keep an eye out for everyone at Slingshots/Cactus Jacks.

    Thanks to Todd and Lisa for welcoming us into your home, for grinding out the awesome food, and for hosting an awesome pinball event! Thanks to Shawn for all the hard work that goes into leading this organization. For all the time he spends on the tournaments while the rest of us get to keep playing pinball.

    Thanks to all of our members who make this an enjoyable hobby. It was great to meet some new faces.

    The OPE is truly beyond anything I had expected, and I'm happy, and grateful to be a part of it.

    Now to find this mystical pinball palace that may be hiding under my nose in Tulsa. LOL!

    Thanks again Todd. Had a lot of fun! Dinner was great, atmosphere was great, total good time was had by all. You collection is fantastic; so many great titles, several I'd never gotten a chance to play yet. Great choice for the tournament games; I think the tournament play was outstanding by all.

    Todd and your wife and family, such great generosity, such great hospitality. Thank you for having me and others to your home. It just kept getting better and better. Getting to play your pinball machines with others, and the dinner. Shishkabobs, chicken, hamburgers. And then chocolate chip cookies too! Prizes!
    Thanks also to Shawn working the tourny. Enjoyed the meetup.

    Tales of the Arabian Nights: A great sound effect pinball, with plenty to shoot for. The main objective is to rescue the princess. As with many pinball there are several objectives, you start them by hitting the Genie, followed by the instructions given by the machine. Once you have completed all the different events, you battle the Genie and his army to rescue her. It can be difficult but can be done, and no I have not beat the Genie. Corvette: It is a pretty fast paced pinball, with your objectives being to collect all the different year corvettes to unlock a future corvette. There are plenty of other stuff going on while ball is in play: One of them is actually racing corvettes side by side, you being one of corvettes while the computer is the other, sometimes you may shoot for the flashing arrows or you may have to hit your flippers fast over and over to out run the computer's corvette. Once again these are just brief overviews.

    I look foward to it

    No Fear: its pretty self explaining, acutally the talking skull will tell you what you need to do. There are a serious of extreme sports you must complete, then No Limits, Fear Fest and the final challenge "Meet Your Maker", a very high scoring pinball, it is a blast to play.

    The Flinstones: like most pins, there are a serious of events you must complete, all the while there are various other shots as well. The outer ramps are a series of 1 2 3, and will alot you to shoot in that order, sometimes 1 on the right ramp, 2 on the left and back to the 3rd shot on the right ramp, it varies every time. You get to bowl when the shot allows, you either get a strike, spare or gutter. The Machine is a shot for multi-ball and the pin will telll you when to go for The Machine. Very fun pinball!!

    I am really pumped there is an organized pinball community in Okc. Cant wait till the tournament. I would be more than happy to bring whatever may still be needed. Just let me know

    April 5, 2013

    Hello eveyone, looking forward to the tournament. Getting the games cleaned up, you just don't realize how dirty they get, especially in the garage. I am going to try and give a few tips for each game, one might google for more info on the games as well.

    Back to the Future, for multi-ball, you are knocking down the 3 center drop targets to light up BACK IN TIME, when you light up a word you send the ball to the vuk into the wire ramp on the left and so forth. When all three are locked it's multi-ball. If you complete it once, then the next time is a little more difficult, you have to light BACK IN TIME in order followed by the ball in order. Also you have the two outside ramps that converge into the singe middle ramp (also known as the FLUX CAPACITOR), each time you send the ball either side it lights a letter of DELOREAN, when complete you will have so many seconds to send the ball up either ramp again for a million points each time.

    question: as an IFPA tournament, is there anything that I need to do to register for that? I haven't ever competed in any tournament.

    March 4, 2013

    • Shawn L.

      You don't have to do anything but participate. After the tournament, I will submit the results to the IFPA. They will enter your name into the database and award you the points that you have earned at which point you will have a ranking. I submitted a photo and some demographic information which they added to my profile.
