  • New Tournament - Game Galaxy Smyrna Grand Opening
    To celebrate the opening of the new Game Galaxy location in Smyrna we will have a tournament on Saturday, September 17th at 6pm. This one will be a little different than the ones we've had in the past. This will be the 'knockout' format. It's a very casual structure. We'll play 3 player games and the two players who don't finish first get a 'strike'. 3 strikes and you're eliminated from the tournament. Last man standing wins. Number of strikes and players per game to be determined based on attendance, but likely to be 3 player games with 3 strikes.

    This will be a very casual tournament, so if you have any friends who are interested in pinball please spread the word. Each game will be randomly drawn so you'll play with a lot of different players. $5 entry fee, all entries fees paid back out for prizes (1st, 2nd, 3rd). Game Galaxy admission required.

    Address is 3 S Lowry St, Smyrna, TN 37167 (Old Regal Furniture Building).

  • Inaugural Selfie League!
    The league has been on a bit of a break lately, but we're ramping things back up with a selfie league. The concept behind this is you can qualify any time during the month. Take a selfie with the score in the background and send it in. The top qualifiers will meet for a playoff finals. If this takes off look for it to continue.

    Here are the details, courtesy of your tournament director Will Krusa.

    I'm trying to get the monthly tournaments going again and I know one of the biggest issues was finding a way to get everyone together at one time. A solution to this problem is running a selfie tournament. If you're unfamiliar with what a selfie tournament is then I'll try to elaborate here. Basically for the entire month of July you are trying to qualify to get into the finals. If you go to https://matchplay.events/
    then click on the I'm playing in a tournament button and then search for Middle Tennessee Selfie League, you will be able to view the tournament, the current players, and the current standings on all the games. The 5 games in the tournament are as follows:

    1. Banzai Run
    2. Fathom
    3. Walking Dead
    4. Game of Thrones
    5. Star Trek

    All these games are located at Game Galaxy in Antioch and where the tournament will be held. We will cycle locations from month to month but the 1st one is here. So any time you have in the month of July, roll into Game Galaxy and play one of these 5 games, take a picture of your end score(hence the name selfie), and email it to myself at wckrusa@gmail.com. I will record the score on the website and you will be able to view where you stand on each individual game vs everyone else. Top score on a game gets 100 points, second gets 90, third gets 85 etc...

    The advantage to doing it this way is you can go to Game Galaxy and attempt to qualify anytime you want. You can try an unlimited number of times and play as many extra balls as you want.

    At the end of the month the top 3, or top 4 if we get enough players, will go to the finals where we will play 4 of the 5 games. The finals will be done in person so I'll contact the top players personally and will work out a time for everyone to meet.

    To make it interesting we will do a $5 buy in to post scores so at the door to Game Galaxy leave them $5 for the tournament and we will split 100% of the buy-ins on the finals. Just so we are clear you will only pay a max of 5$ to enter the tournament and post scores as many times as you want in the month of July.

    If you are interested in participating or you have questions pm me or email me at wckrusa@gmail.com

  • Win a Pinball Machine - December 12th at Game Galaxy
    Game Galaxy is running another tournament where the grand prize is a project pinball machine. This will occur at the Antioch location on Saturday, December 12th at 2:00 pm. The cost is $20 plus an additional $10 that goes to entry at Game Galaxy. The tournament is being run by Game Galaxy and will take the place of our normal monthly tournament. This tournament will be on the IFPA calendar.

    The format is slightly different.

    - Two qualifying games on 3 machines (Kiss, Game of Thrones, Iron Man, Stern Star Trek as an alternate). Best score on each kept. Scores ranked 100-90-85-84, etc. No extra balls.
    - The top four qualifiers will play a one game final on a mystery machine to be unveiled at the final.

    The project machine is a Gottlieb Totem described as a "technically complete almost working project". The prize is located at the Game Galaxy Rivergate location about 30 minutes away but will be available to be picked up after the tournament.
