Wizard Mode: A Pinball Tournament – Results!

September 18, 2017


58 players, 46 playing in their first pinball tournament ever, competed in the Chabot Space and Science Pinball Tournament!  It was a showcase of the Pacific Pinball Museum’s exhibit of nearly 40 games at Chabot, and a collaboration I’ve long hoped would come together between these two great local museums.  Gravity ultimately ruled the day (it always does), but not before these players put up a ton of points and had a great time.

The pinball exhibit still runs through September 24, so check it out if you can.  And if you attended the event and you want more, consider joining the Pacific Pinball League Wednesdays in Alameda.  It’s a fun, friendly league for all ages and skill levels.  You can also check out the next Pinball Show at the Golden State Pinball Festival in May.
