    I also overheard the announcement at SFGE. But, I didn't hear the details. I will say it is huge and it involves Pinburgh. And remember, Pinburgh next year is July 30th - Aug.2nd, not in March as it has been. Better go ahead and plan your vacation around this event!

    Quoted from Chet:

    Oh man, the winter is going to be even longer without Pinburgh in March. I luv watching the Pinburgh broadcasts..

    Yes, but PAPA Champs will be in March!

    Just hours away now. I'll be in church when the announcement is made, but I will find out all the details soon enough.

    Quoted from Skulz:

    Cool announcement. Any other details on what the other tournament is all about for 3 entries for $10 I think it is?
    Now that we are only about 6 weeks away from Papa17, can someone in the know post up where they think pre-papa tournaments will be so that some of us can make travel plans and accommodations?

    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?

    Quoted from DutchTommy:

    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

    Roy, they would not put 4 players on each game because that would be 16 players on a set of 4 games and there would be a lot of waiting. However, I did notice that they added time to make each session last 2:15 instead of just 2 hours. Maybe 3 groups to a bank of 5 pins? As you stated, I'm sure Bowen can fill us in on the math part!

    Thanks Mark. Makes more sense to me now. Start with an open machine upstream of the higher seeded group, to allow for possible longer game times from them?

    It's always interesting to see what Greg G. or Justin B. will be up to in the PAPA lot.
