Welcome to the Die Hard Pinball League

Welcome to Die Hard Pinball.

Die Hard Pinball League is a non-profit society and a group of Edmonton pinball enthusiasts that get together to celebrate the great hobby of Pinball. We also have members that travel the world to PAPA pinball events. It is a fun way to share our love for Pinball! If you are interested in competing in an Edmonton event or are looking for a group of pinheads drop us a line at diehardpinball@gmail.com

Three are four main groups that are associated with Die Hard Pinball.

1. Is our league night group at Lucky’s Lounge, this is open to the general public this group. The league runs every three weeks and plays for the league championship. It is a competitive pinball league from seasoned tournament players to novice players as is has both A, B, C, D and E division play, cash, prizes and IFPA world ranking points are awarded at the end of the season for all divisions. Points are accumulated and the top 16 players are eligible to play for the Alberta Provincial Championship. The winner goes on to represent the province in the US National Championships each year.


2. Major Alberta pinball tournaments which are open to the general public, these are generally held at Lucky’s Lounge. We plan on having these three times a year, hopefully to expand these number of participants in the future. Each tournament in the year will have a different format and IFPA world ranking points are provided to those who participate.
