    Payment for tourney tickets due at registration. Link posted above is correct.
    Tickets will go very fast, highly recommend buying at Noon otherwise you have a great chance of being on the waitlist.

    Discount codes for rooms once tickets go on sale per a tilt forum reply.

    Waiting like many others to see a waitlist / player list update. Perhaps after the first refund period expires at the end of March.

    Quoted from Eightball88:

    I noticed today that there was a little movement on the wait list.

    6-8 spots, looks like the plan to delay ticket sales has paid off in less work for the staff handling cancellations.

    #293 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinzap:

    I was thinking about this... and then I wondered how much revenue they made last year from cancellations that they might potentially lose this year. The cancellations get anywhere from 75% to 25% refund. Maybe the additional revenue from cancellations doesn’t offset the added work and headaches of having to contact waitlisters and shuffle down the list.

    Good point, extra revenue from partial refunds likely to be much lower.

    Just 5 spots. Dang. Almost 200 to go.

    #304 1 year ago
    Quoted from BoJo:

    What also helped the wait list before was you could get a full refund up until a certain cut off point. Pinball people are cheap and now that you can only get a partial refund they will be less likely to cancel.

    Fully agree on this. I'd look on it this way too, if have to get a refund think of it as a donation to the ReplayFX foundation.

    Quoted from Gexchange:

    Where is everyone Staying? Trying to decide where to do the Suite at again this year! Looks like the Omni wants $500 a night for a suite! So I'm leaning towards the Drury or the Westin

    I would think the Westin is the best choice as it is close by. Easy to walk to/from ReplayFX

    Ouch! I was looking towards playing in it this year too.

    Wait list moved a bit recently as 13 more people are off from it or cancelled since I last checked.

    Quoted from Tigger64:

    On the day of the event - is there a place where people on the waitlist should go to help facilitate filling in for the no shows?

    Last year an announcement was made for those wishing to participate to report to the tourney desk. I believe those on wait list were giving priority over the walk ins.

    Quoted from desertT1:

    If the top 130 or so could drop out on the wait list, that would be great.

    I’ll be there and if I don’t get in I will play games and help those local players who are going for the first time.

    I did that last year and had a great time helping out the Michigan players. Gave out game tips and answered questions. Will likely do the same this year.

    Quoted from flynnibus:

    You missed the point.

    As a reader, you don't know if the list hasn't changed because there are no changes... or simply because they've been slow to update the page. Putting a update status on it, even if there are no changes, resolves that quandary.

    Especially since the folks involved don't like setting expectations of frequency or deadlines... just 'it will be done before its needed'

    I believe the posting of a last updated DATE was the request so could get an idea when the list was last changed.

    #465 1 year ago
    Quoted from DaveH:

    So do we get any chance to see how the game is setup before we play it? Just to see how tight the tilt is, and any setting changes. I don't want to have to tilt out the first ball in competition just to find out the tilt is crazy sensitive.

    No practice on banks during the tourney allowed. So step right up and give it a shot. Of course if not player #1 you may want to watch and see if settings can be determined by what you can see happen. If lucky you can ask a friend if played the bank earlier to give you hints.

    The restaurant on the 2nd floor of the Westin (By the convention center) serves great breakfast and very generous portion sizes. The breakfast entree's are very tasty. I haven't sampled the lunch or dinner menu's though.

    #580 1 year ago

    People on the waitlist may not show up or checkin Thursday morning thus moving people up more. But at 300 that is a very tall order. I'd say no chance. Heck I'm in the 150's and thinking no chance as well to play.

    I'll be wearing a PinSide lanyard if I can find it. Hope to see and meet a few more of you there.

    Also will be wearing easy to spot VFW (Vintage Flipper World) T-shirt's Thursday and Friday.

    i really enjoyed playing dollar games called "stall ball" that was a blast.
    basically you have to put the ball somewhere where its "stalls" like a saucer or scoop then get out of the way and the next person jumps in. last one standing wins the dollars.</blockquote

    Sounds like a fun group activity. Will try it out.

    Quoted from Eric_S:

    Out of curiosity, where did the ten cents come from? I'd figure the gross would be a whole number.

    Accumulated interest

    0.0 for me, shrug.

    definitely makes winning feel like a chore but c'est la vie

    sadly true
