    Pinball, Pinball, Pinball sounds like a really fun format to me!

    I was just thinking that too! I totally want to try it for one of my events now.

    Yeah, it was super fun. Waiting in line to get to play again was even interesting, as you're hoping fast playing games that you're good at open up first.

    Quoted from ifpapinball:

    I'm insanely confused by this one

    I would say the qualifying round does not count, since it sounds like all the players are simply getting seeded for the actual tournament. From there, it would most likely come down to counting the actual number of matches played by the players (including the bye as a game played), and taking the player with the most games played as the count for TGP.

    That's probably about five games, then. It's a really odd format, but they run tournaments with it six times a year so they must like it...

    Quoted from ifpapinball:

    I have been in touch with Harry. 3 months left to make sure everything is communicated as clearly as possible . . . and I may need most of that time to get him used to all the changes (calendar and results submission process as well).

    Let me know if I can help with that somehow. I can act as an intermediary or whatever if that's helpful.

    At the local tournament all the best games are reserved for the tournament and the less popular games are for everyone else to use.

    Quoted from PinballHelp:

    As others have said, some games are "one trick ponies" in tournament play. The way to score big points is to play a very specific way, often avoiding a majority of the game's features and ruleset (i.e. Fish Tales, where you can shoot the boat ramps over and over scoring more points more easily than getting multi-ball)

    Don't try that against Keith Elwin or any other player who can make the super jackpot in multiball with any regularity.

    For real. Damn those people. Just makes me want to play better.
