Format:

Best Game format, a popular qualifying format for pinball tournaments. The tournament will have a bank of 14 designated machines. Each competitor may play each pinball machine as many times as desired during the qualifying period. Only a player’s single highest score on each machine will be counted. Player’s best scores on 10 different machines will be counted as a complete entry.  Their 10 best games will be compared to everyone else’s 10 best games and awarded points accordingly. Players will need to play a minimum of 10 out of the 14 pinball machines to be awarded a score.

 

NOTE: Players must play at least 10 different machines  by 6:30 p.m.on Saturday the 18th, so that all competitors can assess the current tournament standings, thus allowing them to strategize which scores they need to improve on to qualify for finals.

The rank of the player’s result on each machine will contribute points to their overall entry as follows:

1st place- 100 points
2nd place- 90 points
3rd place- 85 points
4th down to 87th place 84- down to 1 point
(Best Possible Score = 1000 points, for highest score on 10 different machines)

Advancing to the Finals on Sunday November 19th at 9:00am

The top 24 ranked players after the qualifying round will compete in a best-of-5 games, single elimination, tournament bracket. The top 8 players will get an automatic “bye” to the second round of play.

-Picking a pinball machine during the whole final round on Sunday will take that pinball machine out for the rest of the tournament, unless you have picked all your machines and are starting over.

– There will be no waiting on pinball machines. The group will need to decide what machine they are wanting to play once the round starts.

-In a situation where the only machine left to pick is being played by another group then that machine can be waited on to play

-If this event is broadcast on PAPATV or any other stream, the Tournament Director will make a decision on setting up the cameras for the machines picked for the final 2 rounds semi finals and finals.

-After each game, the players need to see the tournament director to verify the game and update each player’s machine selection list.

Consolation games after losses:

Players who are eliminated from head-to-head matches in the finals will be reseeded based on their qualifying scores, and then placed in a consolation bracket to determine each position  as follows:

Consolation Round #1: Groups of 4 players will play a single game, determined by the tournament director. The top 2 players in each group will advance, and the bottom two players in each group will play the bottom players in the other group. The results of these 2 groups will determine 17-24th place.

Consolation Round #2: Groups of 4 players will play a single game, determined by the tournament director. The top 2 players in each group will advance, and the bottom two players in each group will play the bottom players in the other group. The results of these 2 groups will determine 9-16th place.

Consolation Round #3: This will be a four player game picked by the Tournament Director where they will be playing for position #5, #6, #7, and #8.

Consolation Round #4: This will be a 2 player best of three to determine position #3 and #4
