Pinville 2


For two days of pintastic pinball action, June 22nd – 23rd, we recreate a mini Pinburgh style tournament, one of the most beloved tournaments ever known to the pinball universe! This is an IFPA sanctioned event!

PINBALL FRIENDLY – Saturday includes 5 rounds of play to determine which group you’ll play in the next day. So you’ll compete with similarly skilled players. Even if you don’t make the finals, you will play 36 games of pinball!

Each round will be a group of 4 players playing a bank of 4 machines from different eras of pinball – Electro-mechanical, Early Solid State, DMD, and LCD. You are awarded 3 points on a machine for first place, 2 for second, 1 for third, and 0 for fourth.

Day One of the competition will determine if you’re in the Top Half or Bottom Half of players. In Day Two, you’ll compete with your half in the same manner for 4 rounds, after which the highest ranked players will compete in finals in the afternoon. The tournament should be completed by 5PM Sunday.

PEOPLE FRIENDLY – Free dry camping is available, just click here to let us know your plan. It also happens to be where many pinball machines are available to play ;). Also, for a more posh experience, reserve a room at Susanville’s finest hotel at a discounted rate. Call Comfort Suites @ (530) 257-3450 and ask for a Pinville rate. It even includes hot breakfast!

On Sunday, BBQ lunch will be provided for all players.
