Hello Asylum Inmates and League Players:

ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, we open the 3rd Season of The Asylum Inmates Pinball League!

Here are the first dates for the season-- all fall on the 2nd Thursday on the month:
January 11, February 8, March 8, April 12, May 10, June 7, etc.

A few changes for the 2018 Season:

Cost: $80.00 for the season, which includes entry to 12 Matches, a T-shirt, and cost for the trophies.  If necessary, you may divide this into two payments of $40.00.  First payment is due on or before next Thursday, January 11.  Second payment due on or before March 8th. And yes, you can pay at the match Thursday night with cash or check. Or PayPal to:

Hours and Starting Times: As last year, doors open at 6:30. Final Check-In is at 7:00. When you arrive, please check-in with David or Matt B. Matches will start promptly at 7:15. If you text or call telling us you will be late, we will put you into a group, but the first game may start without you-- i.e. you may have your ball(s) plunged, and/or miss a round(s). If you miss two complete rounds you will forfeit the match.

Guests and Guest Players: As last year, we encourage out-of-towners, guests, and guest players at any match and event. The policy is that each non-league member pays $10.00 to enter The Pinball Asylum, which entitles them to play in a league match. Exceptions: Those 12 and under can enter free, but should still pay $10.00 if they wish to play in a league match. Another exception to the required entry fee is for "Major Donors" and their families-- i.e. if you have donated/contributed to The Pinball Asylum in the previous year, either as a volunteer or monetarily, you probably qualify.

More About Costs: We anticipate some players may be unhappy about the increase in the league fees for this season.  Please consider the following: Where else can you play virtually unlimited pinball on 80+ machines for 4-5 hours, participate in a sanctioned IFPA league, eat for free (our generous Inmates very typically bring food to share), get a T-Shirt, and a chance at one of 8 really cool trophies for less than $7.00 a month?  (In addition, The Pinball Asylum is including the newly implemented $1.00 IFPA reporting fee per player.)

If you wish to join this season, PLEASE respond to the email sent to you today, with a simple, "YES, Please include me." This way we can get our roster for the new season set before the first match! If you did not receive an email, or are new to the Asylum, please email us at

We look forward to hearing from everyone, and seeing you all on Thursday, January 11th, at 6:30pm.
