    Quoted from Wizcat:

    Coming from the UK. Can't wait.
    Just hope I'm not the only Pinburgh player from the UK?! There are soo many good UK players.. but I'm just not one of them sadly.

    If you get bored, you can compare the IFPA UK rankings to the pinburgh sign up page, and see all the brits! I did the top 7 for you, then got bored myself. David Mainwaring was the first name that was on both lists, so he will be the "highest ranked" player from your country.

    2 questions after reading

    "...players in the top 500 of the IFPA’s World Pinball Player Rankings as of July 1, 2015 are restricted to A, B, and C Division."
    Anybody have a guestimation on how many of these players are attending? Lets say 250 or so? So 250 out of the ~525 spots in A/B/C already spoken for? Dang!

    "During each session, all players will be assigned to a group. A set of four games...... Sessions are scheduled for 2 hours and 15 minutes"
    We have 2 hours and 15 minutes to play 3, four player games? Dang thats quite a wait if your group goes quicker than some others. I believe I remember there being mention of a cash bar...............

    Quoted from TaylorVA:

    Last year the allotted time was 2 hrs and there were some groups that went longer which is why the time was extended. There will be plenty to do IMO between rounds so not too worried about the wait, it goes a lot quicker than you can imagine.

    Yes i see now, 4, four player games per 2 hour 15 minute block = ~34 minutes for each 4 player game. I can see how some games could go that far, especially with malfunction or a ruling needed

    Quoted from GravitaR:

    Use downtime wisely is the best tip for Pinburgh. Rest your feet, get something to eat, refresh yourself for the next round. Your body will thank you for it.

    Thanks Grav. Sometimes easy to forget, when you are in the zone, that this is a 20 hour tournament, even before finals!
    Good practice for a 24 hours tournament i will be competing in outside of Hartford, CT in October
