Pinholics Anonymous proudly presents the Pinabler Tour, a two month long tournament held at ten location(s) in the Washington, D.C. / Baltimore Metro area. The Pinabler Tour is a Selfie tournament, which is the hottest thing in pinball since the invention of the super league.

What is a Selfie tournament???  It's simple.  Play any of the selected games at a location and if you get a good score you want to keep, take a selfie on your phone and post it on the MatchPlay.events page, or email the director.  Improve your score?  Take another selfie and repost.  Your best score on each machine is the only one that counts.

Points are awarded for each game based on how good it is versus all other players' best scores within each location.  The total of the best 3 games out of the 4 selected games in the tournament is your final score.  The top 32 players based on weighted point system, which is determined by how many players participate at each location, are automatically qualified for the playoffs.  Additional players will qualify for the playoffs based on factors listed in the official rules.
