Quoted from Whysnow:

Is there a tournament and any details on that?

There will be an IFPA tournament that takes place during PinFest as has been done in prior years.

We are in the planning process at the moment, and when we have information to share I will be sure to post it here and start a PinFest thread dedicated to the tournament.

Hello everyone! I know this thread (and the other PinFest one) are mainly about the show and games, but we have just made some announcements about the Tournaments at the event, so I am cross-posting here and encouraging you to check out this other thread:

Additionally, if you are interested to have your game be part of the Tournament, we have set the goal of having 20 games available to be used for the event. So far, we have a handful secured but we are looking for more. Please check out this page for incentives and how to get one of your games into the event:

Thank you to everyone!

Hey everyone! We've still got lots of volunteer spots open for the Tournament! We need help with set-up, breakdown, tech, and scorekeeping during the IFPA event being held there.

Sign-up is here:
You can read all about the incentives here:

We're also getting closer with machines that will be in the tournament, but are in search of a few additional machines to help round out the lineup. If you're interested to include your machine in the Tournament area (especially if you're bring machines to the event anyway), you can read more about incentives here:

Hey everyone! We're getting closer to PinFest and have about half the volunteer spots filled up so far. If you're interested in free ticket entries to the Main tournament, we're short on help for scorekeeping, teching, and registration desk. We also also opened up some more spots on Thursday for pre-event set-up.

Sign-up is here:
You can read all about the incentives here:

Also, a final call if you have a machine that you would like to bring for use in the tournament in exchange for free entry to PinFest (both days) and free tickets to the Main tournament. You can read more about incentives here:

Hello Everyone! Tournament Update!

We are still looking for volunteers during the event on both Friday and Saturday in the areas of scorekeeping. Anyone who volunteers time during the tournament hours will be given free entries for the Main Tournament.

Sign-Up Link is here:
Current Volunteer Status (as of April 30 at 8:30pm EDT) is here:

I am sharing a link to the rules document in the main tournament thread for anyone who wants some light bedtime reading. There are no fundamental changes to what has been previously announced about the event format, but we have shared more details about things like:

* Ruleset being used (Combined IFPA/PAPA Ruleset)
* Sharing the Points System being used for the Main Event Best Game Qualifying
* Contingency plans on Finals format should the event exceed expected attendance so as still to comply with IFPA rules for TGP.

Main Thread Here:

Looking forward to seeing people this weekend.
