MELBOURNE: Good Beer Week Pinball Extravaganza


Good Beer Week Pinball Extravaganza

Back for the second year running, Jimmy Nails, LCM, Cashbox Amusements, Mountain Goat Brewing and the Peacock Inn Hotel bring you the 2016 Good Beer Week Pinball Extravaganza.

Three awesome events across three days. There will be 12 machines on site from the 16th for people to practice on. It was a cracking week last year so don't hesitate in securing your spots for pin-golf on the Saturday.

Thursday the 19th of May from 7pm FREE ENTRY - No need to pre-register, just be early - max 32 players
Format Type: Three Strikes
Players are randomly drawn to play 2-player single match games. Loser gets a strike, three strikes and you're out, last player standing wins.

Mountain Goat beers and merch for the winners.

Friday the 20th from 7pm FREE ENTRY No need to pre-register, just be early - max 32 players
Format Type: "Pinball! Pinball! Pinball!" (as used in the annual tournament at Neverland in Tokyo)
Head-to-head match play on few enough machines that there's 5 or 6 players waiting in a queue to play. At the end of each game, the winner gets one point. The loser stays at the game unless they've lost twice in a row, in which case the winner stays. The player staying on the game plays in the same position (1up/2up) as they were already. First person from the queue comes and plays that player, the person that left the game goes to the back of the queue and records the win and loss on a master list. At the end of 3 hours, no more games may start. Most wins wins, ties broken by fewest losses.

Mountain Goat beers and merch for the winners.

Saturday the 21st from 10am - $50 INCLUDES T-SHIRT - max 48 players
Format Type: Pin-Golf

12 holes of pin-golf, on 12 different machines. Top 16 advance to finals. Finals consist of 4-player groups playing 3 holes, with 2 players advancing from each group (lowest total pin-score from 3 holes). Ties broken by qualifying score, then countback (lowest score on highest-numbered hole).
Players must pre-pay and pre-register with Jimmy or Luke via AA or jimmynailspinball@gmail.com
Big cash prizes plus Mountain Goat beers and merch for the winners.

Location: The Peacock Inn Hotel ? 210 High St Northcote Victoria. Home of the mighty Peacock Inn Pinball All Stars.

Great weekend to be in Melbourne as GABS is running, one of the world great beer festivals. The Peacock will be an amazing host as usual with well-priced meals and Mountain Goat cans on special all weekend. I think last year we knocked off over 30 cases .
