Oct 5-6th: Pin-Brawl 2018 & "Knock-Out-Before-The-Brawl"
« on: September 04, 2018, 05:18:43 PM »
Hello Florida Pinball Fans & Fellow Asylum Inmates!

The Pinball Asylum officially opens TODAY registration for our 5th Annual Asylum Pin-Brawl Tournament and "The Knock-Out Before The Brawl."

If you did not receive the email link to register, please send an email to

The "Knock-Out Before-The-Brawl" is an IFPA-Sanctioned tournament on Friday night, October 5th, and our Saturday, October 6th PIN-BRAWL is a fun and popular format that consists of two-person TEAMS of players who will battle it out through five (5) rounds of three (3) games to become "The Pinball Asylum PIN-BRAWL Champions."

To promote fairness and fun, teams for PIN-BRAWL will be created the day of the tournament based on A and B groupings-- i.e. each team will consist of an A-Level Player who will be teamed with a B-Level Player.

Unique and fun stuff about PIN-BRAWL:
1. Players get to name their teams (G, PG, or R-Rated only, please!)
2. Coaching is allowed-- i.e. you can instruct your partner what to shoot for real-time as he/she plays.
3. Trash-talking is encouraged! Call your rival team-member a "Yellow-bellied, double-flipping, banana fingered, swamp-rat" if you want to!

We know you will really enjoy this FUN tournament no matter what skill level you are at, as PIN-BRAWL is really all about camaraderie, friendly rivalries, and good-natured trash-talking!

Cost to join a team and play in the PIN-BRAWL is only $30.00, which includes your admission into The Pinball Asylum. Friday night's "The Knock-Out Before The Brawl" is just $15.00.

PIN-BRAWL Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Place Teams, with the winners each year having their names engraved on "The Pinball Asylum PLAQUE OF CHAMPIONS!" The "Knock-Out Before The Brawl" winners will receive prizes to be determined.

As always, participation in any of our tournaments is optional.  If you just want to hangout and play pinball that's fine by us.  $15.00 admission gets you in the door for both Friday and Saturday, and 60+ pinball machines will be set to Free Play. Kids under 12-years old are free. (If you are playing in one of the tournaments, your admission is included in the tournament fee.)

Let the trash-talking begin!  The Pinball Asylum PIN-BRAWL 2018 is just around the corner!
