Wednesday night! Special Hours 2-8pm! Sign up in person for a free to enter pinball tourney!
We're not professionals at pinball and we don't need you to be one either! We're testing the waters with a SUPER informal, VERY casual, FREE to enter, JUST for fun pinball tournament. The winner will receive a retro Terminator 2 action figure and a Game Card with 100 credits on it! We'll start with 8 participants on the Terminator 3 Pinball Machine, and if we get enough interest, we'll do another 8 participants on the Terminator 2 Pinball Machine. Sign up in person at 5:45 pm on Wednesday the 23rd and we'll start playing at 6 or close to it!
If you super-duper care about exactly how it works, you can bore yourself to tears reading the rules below. The short and sweet of it is you'll play at least 2 games and if your score is better than the other players, you'll keep playing until there's only one champion! Ben will be there to run the entire thing, all you need to do is show up and we'll walk you through it!
This will be a random draw knockout tournament, where 4 players will play the game at the same time (Group 1 would consist of Player 1, Player 2, Player 3, Player 4, Group 2 would consist of Player 5, Player 6, Player 7, Player 8)
This is a strike tournament, 3 strikes, and you're out!
First place in a Group of 4 receives 0 strikes, Second place receives 1 strike, 3rd place receives 2 strikes, 4th place receives 2 strikes.
First place in a Group of 3 receives 0 strikes, Second place receives 1 strike, 3rd place receives 2 strikes.
First place in a Group of 2 receives 0 strikes, Second place receives 2 strikes.
After both groups have played, a random draw will happen again and the new Groups 1 and 2 will play the game for a second time. Once a player reaches 3 strikes, they are knocked out of the tournament. This means no matter what all participants will play two full games.
After the second game is played, if there are still enough people to play in two groups, we will randomly draw again, first four names play together, then anyone else left over would be in the next group. If there are only 4 people left, only one group would be needed. Play continues until there is one player left as the winner as all other players have been eliminated by reaching 3 strikes.
Thursday (Thanksgiving Day!) Don't worry, we WANT to be at the arcade, so don't worry that some random employee is being made to work that day, it's the owner! 5pm-9pm special hours AND a fun random tournament!

Friday's hours are 3-8pm and we'll have free hot cocoa until it's gone! Also because it's Black Friday, we'll be offering 25% off any gift card purchased in person down at the arcade!
Saturday and Sunday we have our normal hours (12-9 and 12-8 respectively). We'll be having a high-score challenge on the skeeball machines ALL day. We'll set the score to zero on both machines Saturday and Sunday, and if you beat the one that's on the machine, just give us your email address and phone number and if you still have the high score at the end of the day, we'll inform you that you've won and that you've got a mini skeeball style game to pick up at the arcade!
