    So, I decided to set the machines up like they were during the tournament and make one run through all the games. I managed to beat my competition score by 18 strokes! More proof that I am a major choke artist:)

      Sometimes it's tough to wait on your rotation and keep consistency.

      September 25, 2013

    • Arthur

      Or you're right and totally choked!

    I did not play in the tourney, but still had a great time. Thanks Shawn for having the group over to play your machines and visit.
    Anyone out there think they know CreatureFTBL? I think Shawn is tops so far. Thanks for the tips, I enjoy playing this pin at CJ/SS Arcade.

    Great get together. Good company and awesome gameroom.

    Thanks everyone for making last night such a fun time! Once again everyone was so pleasant, fun, and gracious. I'm very grateful to be apart of this fantastic group!
    I do want to apologize for the difficulty of the goals. It his was my first time, and I definitely misjudged the difficulty balancing. I failed to factor in the "competition nerves" in my own play, so obviously I was ill-prepared to judge how hard it would be for most everyone else. Anyway, I hope it didn't sour anyone to the event or cause undue frustration. I'll try to do better next time:)

      I don't think anyone had complaints. It was very fun! Plus it pushes us all to get better. Nothing wrong with that.

    Always a ton of fun at your house Shawn! Thanks again for hosting, I really enjoyed playing with all of the members that came out and good to meet some new folks in the group!

    Very nicely kept machines with A LOT of unique and tasteful modifications and custom lighting. High quality is an understatement. Every pin felt and looked super clean and the rubbers are obviously changed regularly. As far as the social aspect, everyone was incredibly nice as usual. Shawn is a very gracious host and was more than willing to assist people with rule sets and techniques. I was in the middle of a game every time his wife came around, but from what I overheard/saw she was a very nice host and openly welcomed everyone into their home. (As we all know, the wife's permission is key to hosting meetups. xP) Highly recommend attending future meetups and I will be going out of my way to attend future meetups as well.

    To clarify, the tournament will start around 6ish. This will give stragglers time to get there and early-birds time to practice:)

    September 20, 2013

    • Arthur

      I'm straggling, be there about 430

    Small change to the CFTBL scoring: if you start multiball, but fail to make the whirlpool ramp and drain, you will still finish the hole, but with a one shot penalty. Thus, if you started multiball on ball 2, then were unable to make the ramp before draining, your score on that hole would be 3. I wanted to avoid the aggravation of getting so close, but then having to start completely over. It would be like losing your ball on the green and having to back to the tee box.

      I will definitely host a meetup when we get a bigger place. It's already a stretch having pinball machines in our house. lol We could maybe invite 5 people over. We will definitely be moving into a bigger house relatively soon. When that day comes, Jenn and I host all the time. x) Plus I need to get more high quality machines to make it worth your time. xD Looking forward to Leslie's meetup!

      Thanks for the videos! Most of these I have played only once... and it hasn't been recently, so this will help!

      2 · September 17, 2013

    Re posted rules, continued from below:

    Your score on each "hole" will be equal to the number of balls needed to achieve the objective. Once the objective is completed, the player will let their ball drain and record their score for that hole. the player will plunge any remaining balls. If the objective is not achieved after ball 5, the player will receive a score of 6 on that hole.
    Players will be in "pairings" of at least 3 players and will verify their playing partners scores on the scorecard.
    After all "holes" are played, the winner will be the player with the lowest cumulative score. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by playoff on NGG in which the player(s) with the fewest holes completed after each ball is played are eliminated until only one player remains.

    Please leave any comments/suggestions you have and feel free to ask any questions.

  • Shawn L.

    OK, here are the preliminary rules for the Pin-golf tournament. I might tweak them if the difficulty seems too extreme in either direction. There will be seven "holes" which include BoP, CFTBL, MB, STTNG, TSPP, NGG, and AC/DC.
    All games will be set to 5 balls on tournament settings. "Hole" completion will be objective based as follows:
    Bride of Pinbot- start multiball
    Creature- shoot the whirlpool ramp
    Monster Bash- light 3 monsters
    Star Trek- earn an artifact
    Simpsons- start 3 TV modes
    No Good Gofers- complete 4 holes
    AC/DC- change the song

    Perfect planning!... No Sooners Football this weekend!

    2 · September 12, 2013

    • Shawn L.

      Or OSU, I believe. Actually a fairly lousy game line-up overall that day. Everything revolves around college football for me in the fall, so this was a fortunate scenario to allow me to host.

      2 · September 12, 2013

  • Leslie P.

    Anyone want me to bring a veggie tray.....for healthy snacking?! :)

    September 10, 2013

    • Shawn L.

      You're welcome to bring any drinks or munchies that you prefer. I will likely have pizza and limited varieties of beer and soda.
