Pacific Pinball League Season 3 Finals – Luke Baxter takes the win!

March 29, 2018

After 10 weeks of qualifying, 22 players competed in the PPM League 3 Season Finals, and what a Final it was!

The format was 3 strikes (lose three matches and you’re out) and the lower seeded player got to choose the era (Modern, Solid State or Electro-Mechanical) and the higher seeded player got to choose the game.

The tilts were mean and the action was fast, but in the end, Luke Baxter, one of the strongest new talents in the Bay Area defeated Phil Hellsten in the 11th Round to take the tournament.

Thanks to the players for making this an awesome season, and thanks to the Pacific Pinball Museum for all their support.



PPM League Week 9 – Time Attack!

March 15, 2018

THIS WEEK at the Pacific Pinball League, 23 players competed in Time Attack! Ten high-speed rounds of pinball action on electro-mechanical, Solid State and Modern games. Dexter Dong emerged victorious with 8 wins to take over as the season points leader, while Leslie Ruckman was our top woman player and 2nd overall with 7 wins.

Sean Reynolds won the history trivia contest by identifying a game in the Museum that uses Harry Williams original Tilt mechanism design, the ‘stool pigeon’, citing Genco’s “Kings”(1935). He earns a T shirt.

David Lee wins the Yellow Headband for being the player with the highest winning percentage. Congrats!

There’s only one more week of qualifying and while it’s too late to qualify for Finals, you can try out the league to see if next season might be for you. $10 for non-members (members always free), Wednesday 3/21 at 7pm. More info and full results at:
