Scores and standings-week 4

Thanks to Chris for having everyone out to his place this week!  The central location meant a big turnout, so almost all of his games were in league play.  It’s also not often that a new pinball machine gets released these days, so the first chance at a new machine is always interesting.  While the version of the Walking Dead that we played will probably bear little resemblance to what the “final” game turns out to be, it was still a fun machine with steep ramps and a pretty nasty prison magnet.  While we couldn’t put everyone’s league group on the game (since we would have been there until midnight), at least just about everyone had a chance to get a shot at it in free play, and I’m also sure that this won’t be the last time we’re at Frolic’s.

Also, welcome to Mike, who made it out to his first TOPL night this week.  Hope to see you out again!

Another TOPL season is underway! Thanks to Jim for hosting a great kickoff week, and for having everyone out to play his great collection of machines, with some games that we don’t have the opportunity to play anywhere else. Also a welcome to Sam, who made it out to his first league night, and a welcome back to Bob and Jeff, who are back after taking a couple of seasons off.
