Bigger, better and more tournaments for Pintastic New England!
We are back for 2023 with even more tournaments and have expanded all our tournaments and improved the whole show in many aspects including our new venue with better amenities and more rooms.
This year The Silverball Rumble will have a few changes to improve everyone’s experience. These changes will make this an IFPA certified + event and should be worth 240% WPPRs compared to last year. First change is qualifying will now start Thursday evening for any player who doesn’t get in or choose to play in The Plunge, our 3 strike knockout. 20 hours in all. Up from the 14 hours in years past. We will now have 40 players qualifying for finals with 24 in A division and 16 in an added B division. Up from just 24 A division players only. Pintastic New England is sponsoring the tournament with a contribution to the prize pool as well. All 40 qualifiers will earn cash payouts with first place guaranteed at least $1000. The tournament bank this year will increase to 14 games over the 12 from last year. The last change to The Silverball Rumble from previous years is finals will now be a best of 7 head to head instead of a best of 5. And as always Backhand Pinball will be streaming all the action at twitch.tv/backhandpinball
Our Thursday night tournament in the Western Mass Pinball Club and Southern New Hampshire Pinball Club rooms, The Plunge will run the same as last year but with a new cap of 96 players. Registration for that will be on the Pintastic website.

When you step out of the room dedicated to the Silverball Rumble, you will see several other major improvements to the show. There will be four Club Rooms instead of one, a new room just for custom and homebrew games, a more comfortable Seminar Theatre, and better accommodations for our friends in the pinball media. There will be live entertainment, better food offerings, plus the vendors and kids events you’ve loved in the past. And being in the heart of “Boston MetroWest” gives us more access to shopping and entertainment alternatives for your traveling companions who want a break from pinball
