    Quoted from stevevt:

    What are the payouts?

    All entry fees are paid out to the participants minus any direct costs for running the event. Payouts are based on entries collected, which are impossible to predict since we do not require pre-registration and have a variable entry format.

    The only way to have a fixed payout would be to estimate participation and then pay out some portion less then that to avoid taking a loss, keeping the rest. I assume this is not an approach participants would prefer, but if for some reason someone thinks this is a good idea please send me a PM and we can discuss it.

    Quoted from ryansherwood:

    Will games be announced prior?

    Please keep in mind that these games are all brought to the tournament, and maintained once they get there, by our volunteers. We will do our best to publish a potential game list, but please don't come to the tournament based on any expectations of which machines will be there. All games are subject to change at any time.

    We are going to try extra hard to make sure we have a Centaur of course, since that's our theme! Other potential games currently include:

    White Water
    Mars God of War
    Future Spa
    Mata Hari
    Pink Panther
    Conquest 200

    If anyone is bringing a reliable machine they would like to have featured in the bank, please send me a PM.

    This is a family oriented show and we are gearing this event to be engaging for broad participation and fun, not building a large cash prize pool. For participants seeking big cash payouts I suggest events like PAPA or Pinburgh.

    The prize pool gets distributed to the top 4 finishers, in each category, each day (12 total spots per day). Based on prior years we should be looking at a $4k+ valuation on the prize pool including the trophies and the value of prizes to be donated by our sponsors.

    Direct costs last year were $311. As we try to raise the bar on the event and those participating in it, those costs are increasing but I expect they will stay under ~$400 for 2017.

    I hope this helps.
