Chronic Town to Host Pinball Tournament

If you’re looking to relive your childhood arcade days — or you just want to find something interesting to do this weekend — Penn State Pinball will be hosting a Pinball Tournament at Chronic Town (224 W. College Ave.) this Saturday, Oct. 4 at 12 p.m.

In the main tournament, players will face off against each other on classic pinball machines. Those with the highest scores will move on to the final rounds. There will also be a slightly less intensive side tournament for those who may be new to the pinball scene. Both competitions are open to players of all skill levels.

The tournament, which follows a surprisingly extensive rule book, will be regulated by the International Flipper Pinball Association (otherwise known as the IFPA — yes, it’s a thing).

It costs $15 to enter the main tournament, and $5 if you’d like to compete in the side tournament.
