Format: Double Elimination.
Games: All PINBALL Games at Pinball Hall of Fame can be used in the tournament. See this link for a list of games:
(no bingo games, or arcade video games, it must be a PINBALL machine that keeps score)
How it works: Players are randomly matched up for one-on-one rounds, by drawing names out of a hat. Each round is best 2 out of 3.
Each round will begin with a coin flip. Ultimately the coin flip will result in what player will pick “A and what player will pick “B”. The winner of the coin flip will have first choice of A,B, or C; Loser gets second leftover choice of A or B.
A= what machine will be played,
B= order of play (going first or second),
C=pass your choice to the other person. (to have your opponent make first choice)
The LOSER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round, gets first choice of again, A,B, or C. The WINNER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round gets second leftover choice of again A or B.
Throughout the tournament players can not pick the same machine twice, and players have to pick an open machine to play.
Example: If Tom chooses to play Attack From Mars, Tom can not CHOOSE Attack From Mars for the remainder of the tournament. Tom could end up playing Attack From Mars later in the tournament if Toms opponent were to choose Attack From Mars.
If it takes 3 rounds to determine a winner of the round at least one EM game must be selected (you can pick 5 ball stern games for every round, this will help keep the tournament moving along more quickly)
Extra Balls: Will be plunged and not played.
Final Round: During the final round the winner of the losers bracket will play the winner of the winners bracket. The winner of the losers bracket must beat the winner of the winners bracket TWICE (must win 2 whole ROUNDS) to win 1st place in the tournament.
In this format, even if you loose every time you step up to a machine you will at very least get to play 4 times in the tournament.
First place – 70% payout of the prize pot (based on number of entries but at very least $100) plus trophy.
Second place – 20% payout plus trophy.
Third place – 10% payout plus trophy.
During tournament play for purposes of Player Conduct, Machine Malfunction, Stuck Balls, Errors, or Rulings, all final decisions will be made on a case by case basis by Tournament director and host Trailer Tom (Tom Miller).
Example of tournament play:
Ffej and Tom are matched for a one-on-one round. Ffej Flips a coin, Tom calls Tails. It is Tails. Tom wins the coin flip.
Game One: Tom gets first choice and chooses to play on Attack From Mars. Ffej gets choice of order of play and Ffej chooses to go second. Tom is player one and Ffej is Player two on a 2 player game on AFM. After ball 3, Ffej has a higher score than Tom on AFM.
Game Two: Tom gets first choice, and chooses to play Adams Family. Ffej gets choice of order of play and again Ffej chooses to go second on AF. Tom is player one and Ffej is Player two on a 2 player game on AF. After ball 3, Tom has a higher score than FFej on AF.
Game Three: Ffej gets first choice, and chooses to play Star Wars. Tom gets choice of order of play and chooses to go second on SW. Ffej is player one and Tom is Player two on a 2 player game on SW. After ball 3, Ffej has a higher score than Tom on SW.
Ffej wins the Round. Tom Loses the Round. Ffej advances to the next round, Tom gets bumped to the loser’s bracket if its Toms first loss, or is eliminated form the tournament if its Tom’s second loss.
