During qualifying, competitors will play on a bank of at least 10 machines. The machines will cover all major eras of pinball (electro-mechanical, solid state, and modern DMD).

The sum of all points will be used to determine a player’s overall ranking. Tournament cost; there is a mandatory $5 fee for all players that goes directly to PAPA to offset the cost of running the overall circuit. This fee will be collected as you register.
