On Sunday, November 24 we will crown a winner of the league playoffs. Later that night there is a different league crowing a winner. To help everyone watch the Grey Cup we are hoping to complete as many rounds as possible on Friday, November 22.
The Pinhead Cup will have a new name engraved on it, & it is Ian G’s name that will grace the trophy for 2019! Ian defeated Mike M from Fargo ND, who has driven up to Winnipeg to play in several past tournaments, & earned his 2nd ever podium finish in Manitoba, matching a 2nd place finish from May 2018. Derek W beat Jay W to take 3rd place in the deciding game of Monster Bash which involved both players scoring well over 100 million!
The 9th Annual Pinhead Cup is on the line Saturday November 9th at 6pm! She has been removed from my shelf & returned to the NEW Lightning Arcade, which is at a new address. If you do not have the new address, contact David Morris. Cost is $2. See you there…
Back on October 26th, the MPL Climb The Ladder Spectacular took place at The Forks. Congratulations to Drew S again, who won! Drew has now won 4 IFPA Manitoba 2019 tournaments, which is more than anyone else. David Morris placed 2nd, & Lance W was 3rd. The remaining top 6 were Jay W, Kevin P, & Mike R. Congrats to all!
The playoff bracket seeding might need to be updated as Jody and Lance are tied with 193 points. In order to break the tie there will be a best of 3 match at the Pinhead Cup. Next league season Manitoba Pinball League will have a set way to break ties. To offer input into how ties should be broken send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The playoffs for the league are best of 7. The highest seed has choice of game or position. The person who does not win gets the choice for the next game.
Season 3 of the Manitoba Pinball League is heading into the postseason. Playoffs are right around the corner, once we have a date set we will let everyone know. The playoffs are best of seven so it might be broken up over multiple days.
Here is how the bracket looks for the playoffs. Seeding might change if people are unable to attend.
