Belles & Chimes is a national network of women’s pinball leagues started in 2013 in Oakland, CA. Belles & Chimes Denver is gearing up for their third season as an established chapter. We’re hosting a kickoff party at 7pm on Thursday, June 28 at The 1up Colfax to meet-and-greet, practice, share insights on new things in the works for the coming season, enjoy some snacks, and most importantly have some fun! We’re looking forward to seeing familiar faces as well as welcoming newcomers.
A total of seven league night matches will be held every other Thursday at 7pm at The 1up Colfax, beginning July 12. The cost to join is $10 for the season plus the cost of games. We’ll play seven rounds each night — games and opponents are randomly selected. Players must attend four of the seven matches in order to qualify for the “Belles” finals tournament, which will be held on Saturday, October 13 at 3pm. (In previous seasons, there were enough players who competed in only three or less league nights, so we were able to hold a side finals tournament, “Chimes”, as well).
Belles & Chimes Denver is more than just competition though. We’re all about further growing our amazing community of women pinball players in Colorado. Newcomers can expect to get tips and tricks from their fellow players, as we encourage everyone to help each other learn new skills to master the art of pinball wizardry. That said, we’re excited to host several non-compete events this season! We have two training sessions scheduled, as well as field trips to arcades in the areas surrounding Denver (carpools to be coordinated).
