    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I will sponsor Scott for his $10 and add $10 of my own (bet on Scott) to make this a $20 game between thenotrashcougar and dirtbag66
    I normally suggest everyone not feed into the obvious trolling from dirtbag (he is feeding off of and enjoying the responses he's getting), but heck, let's make some bucks and get this challenge game underway. Where are we doing this?

    I got $20 on scott.

    Quoted from DrScoops:

    Was there a tournament at expo? I have looked for results/ a stream an have come up empty.

    No stream. Elwin, z Sharpe, and J replogle were the top three.

    Do any shows post etiquette signs anywhere? Just something simple.

    "One player games unless playing with others. Always check to see if someone is waiting after you're finished. "

    Quoted from DrScoops:

    Wow that would have been great to watch. I wish I had the money/time/skill set/ connections to make tournament broadcasts a regular thing. Just think pinball tourney finals broadcast once or twice a month with quality commentary (Bowen, Bowden, Shivers, Teolis, Jack Danger, Nick and Kevin, etc etc.) there is a lot of potential broadcast talent in the hobby right now. And great players with interesting backgrounds.

    Agreed. I'm hoping the stern circuit series does something about this. I would've loved to see this too.

    Quoted from goatdan:

    Yes, but it's not that simple. While we all know how to start one game a new player walking up has no idea.

    That's what the signs are for. To give them an idea. They can also get a flyer with that same info on it when they get their wristband. Registration people can be told to verbally confirm the two simple rules as well. Most important being the make sure no one is waiting. Accidentally playing a multiplayer game is understandable.

    Quoted from frolic:

    People don't read. I'd boil down to 1 or 2 of the most important bullet points, and perhaps an audible one as wrist bands go on.

    My point exactly:


    1. When finished with a game, look behind you to see if others are waiting to play.

    2. Have fun!!

    Have stand up signs at either side of each isle at each end of the isle. Have them on the doors to go into the event, and pass them out on cheap card stock when people buy their wristbands, and tell them this as you put the wrist band on them.
