Our CHAMPION PUB tourney has 3 days left to run and it’s hotting up at the top as my early lead on 50million approx has been eclipsed with fresh scores ranging from 65M to 130M! @Meppi64 expectedly leads the pack. Still time to post a score, so get on it everyone.

@masterleon Noticed you had a HUGE score on TIME MACHINE in ZACCARIA PINBALL. That table is one of our monthly tables for April, along with GHOSTBUSTERS and TX-SECTOR. Do you fancy entering an official score for @corneel ‘s custom leaderboards?

THE CHAMPION PUB tourney in PINBALL FX3 has now ended. Here are the final rankings:

We also had an entry from SpringheelGreg playing on PS4 which secured 6th place: Untitled

Well done to all those who took part, including several new faces and bravo for some truly astounding scores that would rank high-up even in the global leaderboards for this table.

@tatanak You now have the honour of selecting the next table from PINBALL FX 3 and creating the tourney in-game. Any questions please ask, and please share the password with us here once it’s ready.

@tatanak For your reference, any table in PBFX3 is fair game but the remaining Williams/Bally tables we’ve yet to do tourneys on are THE PARTY ZONE, THE GETAWAY: HIGH SPEED II, ATTACK FROM MARS and SAFE CRACKER.

Cheers buddy. So come one, come all, join us in THE PARTY ZONE!

Untitled

[from Wikipedia] The Party Zone is a solid-state pinball machine released in 1991 by Midway (under Bally) designed by Dennis Nordman and programmed by Jim Strompolis. It is in a single playfield format and collaborates characters from previous pinball machines. It is the second pinball machine released after the Bally-Midway division was sold, yet still operated under the "Bally" name.

Untitled

The backglass as well as the playfield contain characters from previous games (who all meet up on this game at the Cosmic Cottage):

  • The Party Animal from Bally Midway's 1987 Party Animal
  • The Party Monsters from Midway's 1989 Elvira and the Party Monsters
  • The Party Dude from Midway's 1990 Dr. Dude And His Excellent Ray

Note: If you need any help to join this tournament, let me know. If you are playing on PS4, just post a pic of your score here. Remember to use classic/arcade 3-ball physics and settings. Good luck and party on!

@Tatanak Joined the new PARTY ZONE tourney last night and had a few runs. Noticed you’d already put down a pretty impressive score. Well played. Any tips for this table?

THE PARTY ZONE! Tournament Results:

Thank you to all who took part and warm welcome to the new faces making their PBFX3 Tourney Debuts with us here. If you are reading this, please do come introduce yourselves.

Huge congrats to our winner @TUTE_PRIMUS whose winning score would rank him about 4th in the Global Leaderboards for this table. Another outstanding display from @OO1OO1OO and @Tatanak @Stuzz @summerwind achieved impressive scores too.

Apologies once again to those that featured at the bottom of the screen. On this occasion @Corneel PBFX3 has a bug whereby the last person’s score often disappears and it also does this for the top position. Often I have to take a screenshot just prior to the tourney ending to ensure I get all players scores. Wish they would bloody patch it. Hence why your score is separate and alone and enlarged 😉

@corneel Many thanks buddy. Hopefully, we can get a healthy number of folks to participate and post a score. It is a great way to learn how to improve on the chosen table during these fun friendly tourneys.

And the three tables for the May tournament are:

AC/DC | available in the Pinball Arcade and Stern Pinball Arcade

AC/DC perfectly captures the head banging vibe of one of the most legendary rock bands in the world, AC/DC. Designed by Steve Ritchie, the gameplay centers around 12 unique song modes based on the band's biggest hits, including Back in Black, Thunderstruck and Highway to Hell. Complete them all to play the spectacular Encore wizard mode. Tour, Album and Jam Multi-Ball modes can be played separately or combined for huge scoring! The playfield is packed full of features including the Hell's Bell swinging newton ball pendulum, a molded Rock 'n Roll train, the Underworld lower mini-playfield, a TNT Detonator, a moving band members diorama and a rotating ball cannon.

Untitled

TEE'D OFF | availble in the Pinball Arcade

Designed by Ray Tanzer and Jon Norris, this Gottlieb table features a humorous golf theme and a mischievous gopher, reminiscent of the movie Caddyshack. Players are challenged with completing rounds of golf in order to activate high scoring multi-ball modes. It has an extensive set of rules and great features such as the roulette Gopher Wheel, a Volcano up-kicker on the playfield and the animated gopher named Gunther, who sits on top of the back glass and shrugs his shoulders in sync with audio that taunts the player. 3,500 units of the table were produced.

SPOOKY (2017 remake) | availble in Zaccaria Pinball

Untitled

You can post screenshots of your highscore here and you will be added to the leaderboards (see links in my signature) Have fun!!

@Corneel We’re doing AC/DC Premium model. There’s like three or four different versions of this table across STERN PINBALL and THE PINBALL ARCADE. Assume there are scoring differences so wherever possible I’d advise players to play on the Premium version of this table.

UPDATE: We’re using our usual set-up for ZACCARIA. So the SPOOKY (remake) table is 3-ball, simulation physics.

Just a heads-up that for anyone with access to the USA eShop. You can currently purchase the AC/DC table at 50% off discount. That’s $4.99 as a stand-alone table purchase for STERN PINBALL.

Or you can buy the entire Stern Table Pack 1 as dlc for THE PINBALL ARCADE at 50% off discount. $9.99 This pack has 6 tables and some crackers like AC/DC and STAR TREK.

Hi all and sorry for late reply!

Ranked 16? Aaaargh! I thinked to have done better but I have played only one match on Xbox since I play almost on Switch and on it I don't have that table. Anyway, I have PFX3 on all platforms and the largest library on PS4 since the first Zen Pinball.

Lroy if is my turn, i will create the tourney and post in the next reply. There are particular rules?

Happy to enjoy the party!
