Steven Bowden wins the Brooklyn Pinball League!

After 8 weeks of plays in 2 machines (World Cup Soccer and Avatar) in Williamsburgh at 4th down sports and bar, 4 players made it to the final: Steven Bowden, Frank Romero, Alberto Santana and Francesco La Roccaorganizer of the league.

The  format used  during the season was that you had to play 2 times each machine and then get the best score  where high score of week would have get 25 points, 2nd place 20 pts, 3rd 15 then 14 etc. For the final both machines where played 4 times! Last games were played on Avatar and everyone still had chance to win but Steven Bowden defended his lead by finish 2nd with a total of 84 points for the night (out of possibly 100 ) and so was crowned as winner of the league.

Thanks to his great score on last game Frank was able to finish 2nd ending with 73 points, while Alberto beated Francesco by 1 point (70 points vs 69 ). Eddie Cramer finish 5th and Steve Marsh 6th! The top 4 players got plaques and PAPA 15 entries. Great going all!

Brooklyn Pingolf League week 5

Hey everyone . A little blog about what happened in the past weeks .

Week 4 was the week of 3 machines down with Sean Grant managing to get a 9 (!!) and Robert Sovatsky 13 and lots of people showed up to play .

Week 5 saw the arrive of a new machine(Scared Stiff with a target score of 6,600,000)  that replaced Iron Man (sigh) and was the little celebration of Steven Bowden’s birthday thanks to Vito and Patricia, Eddie and Dahlia.Steven B. also managed to win the week with 19. This also was the week that we started to play on wednesday for make ups and 2 players decide to not coming anymore for personal motifs (Ben and Will ) .Watch the video that Eddie made 🙂

Last week (very busy also )  Sean Grant won again the week . Frank Romero was able to put Grand Champion on Family Guy and beat Sean ‘s record from the afternoon.

We also decide to move the last week (number 10 ) from the 23rd of june (we will play for make ups on wednesday the 22nd)  to the 30th and make sure everyone will be there because of time needed to make t-shirts .

Thank you all

Goodbye World Poker Tour – Results from week 3

I’ve managed to install a table manager for word press so the results will look different from now on AND Francesco can update the website so you’ll see the results much sooner!

This week was a little different having World Poker Tour out of commission so we only had 8 holes this week. We are up to 26 people and we are just about at capacity! .. Hopefully everyone can come a little earlier so we can finish by 11pm this Thursday. We are implementing a 9pm practice cap .. that means that after 9pm you can’t practice, everyone needs to be playing a hole!

For week 4 we have a new addition! .. Iron Man! .. goodbye World Poker Tour. Francesco and I played a bunch of games to determine the target score for the new table and our average was 8,300,000 .. not too hard if you get multiball going. The table is really bouncy so! .. come early to get some practice in.

This week it was Steven Bowden on top with 14! .. Nice job Steve.
