The Bat City Open 2019


Got mine! Thanks for all the hard work. We all appreciate it!


Here is the full player list for this years Bat City Open.
We reached 84 players at around Midnight last night.
Due to available games we are unfortunately going to cap this years event at this number.
The wait list submission form is now up and running on the Buffalo Billiards web page under Bat City Open.

Wow, congrats on another fast sell-out!


The Wrecking Crew is…uh, I mean the Poster is here!


OK folks so the slow roll of the games list begins now…
Highspeed, Iron Maiden, Deadpool, Police Force, Bram Stokers Dracula, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.
More to come, soonish…


Game list continued…
Robocop, Demolition Man, POTC (Stern) Addams Family, Kiss (pro), Star Trek (pro), Congo.


Is their any way at all to turn off the super skill shot on POTC? That shot is so lopsided that I saw several people win their rounds last year with just that one shot once. See that happening at the monthly as well :frowning: IMHO it’s worse than the secret skill shots on Maiden as it’s still a luck shot (first shot is skill but getting it to the other side is luck) and is way more points lopsided than the 20 Million you get in Maiden.

Looking forward to Congo. That game kicks my butt but for some reason I love it!


Pretty sure there is no software option to disable that, if there is I’ve overlooked it. I don’t know if the one they used at any of the PAPA event’s had it disabled (maybe @PAPA_Doug can chime in on that) . I have a few ideas in mind about what to do about it though…:wink:


Disable ball save. This adds more risk to putting the ball on a horizontal trajectory right out the gate.


That’s not a bad suggestion. Take the risk and lose it all or win big. At least their is some skin in the game. As it stands now everybody shoots for it and then collects the ball and plays the game.

I don’t know the game well enough to know if that switch gets you anything more valuable then some small bonus. If not, maybe just disconnecting that right switch would help. Still get the 3 million skill shot but can’t get the extra 10 for the full loop.

Or, if you have enough games. Pull it and make it a side event. Put it on 5 balls and charge a buck a game. You get one shot per ball to shoot for the skill shots. High score wins the pot :slight_smile: It’s fun playing casually and going for it in a group but in Match Play it’s a real nut buster especially for the lower skilled players.


@spraynard, what ball save…


I can confirm at pinburgh you can hit it. Hitting it on ball one and two was one of my greatest pinburgh moments. No ball save, so high risk, high reward.


Can someone explain the Super Skill shot? I’m not very familiar with the game and there’s nothing on Pintips.



More games!
Flash Gordon, Meteor, Judge Dredd, Twilight Zone, Earthshaker, Lexy Lightspeed:Escape From Earth, and Star Wars (Premium)


The last few games; Grand Lizard, Team One, Barracora, Taxi, F-14, Breakshot, Jokerz, and Joker Poker.
This list could change at any time cause stuff breaks.


And the waitlist triples in size
