    Re: Flippin’ with the Greats - Win a Brand New Pinball Machi

    How does the Stern giveaway work? Is it a raffle/draw type thing, or is it based on scores between other locations, or... ?

    So the winner of this tournament in Toronto will be invited to a Grand Final in Las Vegas, NV to be held at the Pinball Hall of Fame.

    If you then win the Grand Finale, you will win a new Stern Pinball Machine.

    Rats. I had more of a chance to win it if it was luck-based. :p

    Sunday's are super tough for me to get off, but I'll try to make it out.

    Re: Flippin’ with the Greats - Win a Brand New Pinball Machi

    It's funny to see the life cycle of tournament players, there was a time when I was exactly like you, I would drag my ass down to MI for every tournament possible long before they ever became available locally.

    Now, I wouldn't make the trip :mrgreen: unless there was some real value, the format is good in the sense that at least you get to play all day regardless of if you screw up or not.

    But I look forward to next year hopefully getting into some multi day tournaments to really add some value for out of towners.

    If a free place to sleep would help in your decision, I have a spare room.

    6 PAINTED Gridiron Greats NFL Star Medallions with matching serial numbers, featuring 2 color epoxy paint fill matching the players team colors
