Pacific Pinball Open Feb 21 2015

January 26, 2015


Where: Pacific Pinball Museum. When: 2/21/15

Hey folks, I’ve decided to get off my lazy ass and do a tournament.  Actually, there’ll be two. If you’ve played in the PPO in the past you know the basic format: play each game once and either get a top score or finish high enough overall to advance to the finals.  As always, this ‘main’ tournament is FREE with regular museum admission and this is a very beginner-friendly event.  Register and play your qualifier games starting at about 4 PM, but you can show up as late as 6 or 7 and still get in.

This year I’m adding a new format as well: Round Robin.  This tournament will cost $30 on top of regular admission but all money will be paid out.  It will be limited to 40 players.  This Round Robin has a twist I think you’ll really like!  Be sure to read the rules on the tournament page to see if this is for you.  Also, note the different, much earlier start time (around 11:30 AM) for the Round Robin event.

If you want to play in the Round Robin, email me at  I will send you my paypal address where you can send the $30 to reserve a spot.  If you don’t have/want paypal your best bet is to pay through someone who does.  Worst case I’ll take your name down, but paid spots will be filled before name reservations.

Both of these tournaments will award WPPR points but under the new IFPA rules will not be combined as a “main” and “side tournament” as was done previously.

I can always use volunteers, so if you can pitch in and help for an hour or two I’m eternally grateful (email me), and the next time Mads Kristensen is in town he’ll give you a free piggy back ride (no weight limit!).

    Authentic Danish comments!


    How Jon! It is men like you we need when tradition must be kept alive – and hoofed animals!

    Do not forget that the winner gets free lunch in Copenhagen with meatballs and herring! And what antler trophy? Is it alive? Is it engraved at last? I like to sponsor if we are to have new names! Is the tournament televised? What time in Denmark? Missing ELK’en not a leg? It’s so good to have you back as TD!

    Good luck with it all!

    thank you

    Sådan Jon! Det er mænd som dig vi har brug for når traditionerne skal holdes i hævd – og klovdyr!

    Glem ikke at vinderen får gratis frokost i København med kødboller og sild! Og hvad med gevir trofæet? Er det levende? Er det graveret fra sidst? Jeg sponserer gerne hvis vi skal have nye navne på! Bliver turneringen TV-transmitteret? Hvad tid i Danmark? Mangler ELK’en ikke et ben? Hvor er det godt at have dig tilbage som TD!

    God vind med det hele!
