Best Game format:
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.

The rank of the player’s result on each machine contributes the following points to the score for that entry:
1st place 100 points
2nd place 90 points
3rd place 85 points
4th down to 87th place 84- down to 1 point

Finals Round: Sunday November 20th 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.

On Sunday, there will also be a "B" Tournament for players seeded 25- 40. These 16 Players will have a Double Elimination Tournament. Trophies and Prizes will be awarded for the Winners similar to past Tournaments.
