Well guys I think last night was one of the most enjoyable pinball night of .... the last decade! :o

The organization and thoughts that went into the "tournament" was, IMHO, the way to go!

Basically, Mark wrote "cha-langes" ( :lol: ) for each games and you had to pick one and bid on it with poker chips. Teams were made for 45 minutes and the switched.

exemple:
on STTNG, the one who has the highest score on Q's Challenge. (of course I ran ALL modes EXCEPT Q's challenge! :FP: )

the highest race position on Indy 500 or the lowest score without draining in the middle ...

end of the night, the 4 with the most chips run a 4 player games, last one out, 3 player game, last one out ... and 2 player game for the finale.

All of this made it so everyone could play all night, everyone could meet and talk with everyone and playing the game with "that angle" made it very different and "leveled" everybody.


yeah sure I may have won the tournament but Mark, this one is for you:

Merci tout le monde.

More than 5 years ago, I was a noob and felt a bit intimidated to go to meetings. This was long overdue. Hosting was a new experience.

The best way for our community to grow is to open up our caves/garages/insane game-rooms to others as there are very few places to play in Montreal.

This meeting really helped me to put real names to your MAACA names. I do find it easier to say Alain than Chnillapoil ...

I look forward to the next meeting, and plenty of more Pinball Talk.
