Gene X and Andrei Massenkoff present The 24 Hour Pinball Battle for the Kids at The Myriad. It’s a similar format as The Sanctum event. Check out the custom prize you get for completing the entire 24 Hours!
As part of the Extra Life Gaming Marathon we’re teaming up with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals to support them (World pinball champion Andrei Massenkoff teaches at this hospital). They actually have a Star Trek pinball in the kids lounge already and a world pinball champion, Andrei Massenkoff is a teacher there too. We’re looking to help raise funds to support them and want you to join in!
If you haven’t played pinball in years (or ever!) feel free to join in and support this great cause. You don’t have to play for 24-hours straight but many of us will be doing so!
This is an IFPA endorsed tournament and will award World Pinball Player Ranking points (aka you will become a world ranked pinball player if you choose to compete 🙂
To donate right now you can go to either of these links:
Gene’s fundraising: https://
Andrei’s fundraising: https://
– When – starts at 8am but you can join in any time – ends at 7am on Sunday b/c this is the ‘fall back’ time change night
– Who – anyone who wants to play pinball and/or support UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in Oakland and San Francisco
– How much? We recommend a minimum donation of $10 but if you have a hardship please let us know as we will have a sliding scale. You can also set up your own fundraising page on the Extra Life website too
If you play the entire 24-hours you’ll get a commemorative playing card with your photo on it (delivered a few weeks after the event – yes this is an actual trading card like an old school baseball card)
Fun With Bonus is the home of the semi-coherent, misguided ramblings of professional and amateur pinball players.
