It will not take a huge commitment, but it would be a tremendously fun way to challenge your friends and family to a pinball challenge while helping the patients and families of the Children’s Hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses!
How It Works:
You can select another player to challenge to a head to head match on a pinball machine for purpose of raising money for charity. The match can be 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 games to be played.
$5 dollars for each player donated to Project Pinball Charity, so the total would be $10 per match.
Player refusal to accept a challenge is asked to still donate $5.
Keep in mind that the Named Challenger should be to someone that you have an opportunity to play pinball against. You would not want to challenge another player that would be too difficult to arrange a meeting point, especially if they are located in another country, city, state or other areas. You might want to plan around a pinball show or tournament that would high in attendance to get a good positive response.
Due unpredictable nature of these challenges, please do not overload a player. Please be respectful of their schedule and participation level. We encourage you to reach out to your challenger and ask them if they are free to play for better success.
We will have a Players List and Achievement Award to track participation levels on our Project Pinball Charity’s website page.
Achievement Award Levels:
MatchPlay.Events will have a page to be able to track a player’s progress for their matches. This will include a win/loss chart and challenges faced.
