Beast's Lair Annual Open House Pinball Tournament 10.21.17
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:22:20 PM »
Hello All:

I am starting to solidify plans for the Open House, and this year's tournament will once again be registered on the IFPA calendar, and will be an official IFPA event.  This will not be a big issue or those who are not interested in IFPA point, you can play and ignore the points if you like.

There will be no charge for entering, and there will be 48 slots available.  I will provide trophies for the main tournament, and also for various side tournaments, just like usual.

The format will be the three strikes format that we have been using lately,  The size of the crowd puts some limits on what we can manage, and 3 strikes is a pretty straightforward format, with limited score keeping responsibility.  I will open the doors at noon, and start the tournament around 1:30 - 2 pm.  That should give some time for free play, both before and after the tournament.

Format:

3 strikes, Best-of-1 Matches (4 player matches – 3rd/4th place get strikes). Groupings, play order, and games will be randomly generated.

In the event that a grouping of 2 or 3 players occurs, 1 strike will be awarded only to the last player.

Play continues each round until one player remains.

More details to follow, particularly about the rest of the event.

Ron

The game lineup will be finalized once we get a little closer to the event.  There will be 16-20 games in the bank, and there will be a mix of games, including games from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s and (maybe) 10's.  With a three strikes tournament, you could play any type of game in any given round.  I will post all games available a couple of weeks prior to event, and then will select the tournament games based on spacing, as things get tight with 40+ players.  If you look at the posting for last year's evemt, you will see a pretty good indication of what is in my collection.
