Quoted from LOTR_breath:
The 4/$10 entry tournament is a PAPA style qualifying on VIDEO GAMES. It is not pinball related. Having just been to the SFGE in Atlanta, I look forward to taking in the whole event. But with SFGE, it was a PAPA Circuit event, which took place in a small section of one room. How in the world are they gonna pull off Pinburgh in the midst of a full fledged expo? What I am most confused about is the # of pins vs. # of players. In last years Pinburgh there were 200 machines = 50 sets. There were two groups(eight players) on each set of pins simultaneously, which was 400 players. Now they are saying 280 pins and 700 players. 280 pins = 70 sets. For 70 sets to support 700 players they would have to put 10 players simultaneously on each set. That is 2.5 groups/set? It doesn't add up unless they are going to a different format of some kind. Can anyone make this a little more clear?
as far as my math goes is that with 280 pins (4 players on each machine) makes 1120 people all on the games at once maximum. and how they divide it among the sets. is for the tournament director to solve, but i have faith as 1 of them is an master of math so he will probably figure this out how to roll 700 players
