    Set your calendar for this Saturday!! Texas Pinball Festival 2019 Wizards tournament tickets will go on sale this Saturday, October 6th, at 12pm CDT.

    They sold out quickly last year, and we anticipate they will sell out even quicker for 2019.

    • The popular Wizards tournament format will remain the same: limited entry, multi-era, capped at 160 players, with A, B, Women's and Novice division finals.
    • The Wizards tournament entry purchase will include show admission at the early bird rate. For simplicity, you'll purchase both in one transaction. $80 for the Wizards tourney. $50 for the TPF show pass at the early bird rate. $130 in total. (We have a plan for players who are also game exhibitors to refund the show pass amount)
    • The Wizards tournament prize purse will be bigger than any in TPF history thanks to a very generous sponsorship by deeproot Pinball.
    • The Classics tournament will return with more pins than 2018.
    • The Kids and Parent/Child tournaments will run on their own machines.
    • Similar qualifying and finals schedule as 2018: qualifying all-day Friday and half-day Saturday, Classics finals Saturday morning, Kids finals Saturday afternoon, and Wizards finals Saturday evening.
    • Access to one of the best pinball festivals in the world and a 40,000 square feet game room / exhibition hall!
    • A full lineup of industry and hobby seminars.

    We are still hammering out a few last details and will announce them on updated tournament pages before October 6th.

    Looking forward to seeing many of you March 22-24, 2019, at TPF 2019!

    Bumping this, so that more people see it prior to Saturday.

    Stoked. I might actually get to play this year, (because I'm a glutton for punishment and don't lose to snailman enough here at home!)
    Also, BUMP...

    Final reminder: 160 tickets go on sale tomorrow, Oct 6 at 12pm noon, US central time.
    Don’t miss TPF, and don’t miss out on this awesome Stern Pro Circuit event.

    We’re excited to announce that through a generous sponsorship from deeproot Pinball that the TPF Wizards total prize package of cash and trophies is estimated to be over $19,000!! (assuming full 160-player participation)
    The winner for TPF A Division will win an estimated $4,400, plus an awesome custom molded trophy from Double Danger pinball.

    The Classics unlimited entry tourney is open to all TPF show attendees, and last year’s total cash and prize package for the Classics was over $2,600.

    Full details can be found at:

    The TPF Wizards and Classics finals will be streamed on Twitch, compliments of a new wireless mobile camera rig that spraynard is building.

    See you all the weekend of March 22-24 at TPF 2019!

    Two hours and counting!

    only 6 left!

    #7 2 years ago

    160 all gone in <1 hr. Sheesh. Waiting list for me.

    If you want to be put on the waitlist, you need to “purchase” a waitlist marker. Don’t worry, it costs $0. The waitlist marker is available in the store.

    Doh! That sold out fast! Any way to find out where we are on the waitlist?

    Sorry, that won’t be available right away, as we go through processing all the transactions. Thanks for your interest. I hope you get a ticket eventually.

    #11 2 years ago

    There are currently 44 on the waitlist, but I don’t have a compiled list of who’s in what spot.

    #12 2 years ago

    Just purchased my ticket and got on the wait list. Will be my first year attending, psyched! The question is, what machine will I want to buy?

    #13 2 years ago

    Glad to see the growing demand for people enjoying competitive pinball. For those on the waitlist, there is also the Classics tourney available to all TPF attendees — no pre registration required.

    I'm hoping for an EM or early SS.

    Chad, if you are on pinside and see this, you know that 300 would look great at my house
