    #53 5 months ago

    Got my vip, hotel and flight all booked. Can’t wait for the show! You guys are fantastic.

    #54 5 months ago

    Work booked off cant wait!! Wife notified she has the kids herself all weekend. Gotta remember when there to get a sermon at St. Petes!!

    Is there no Retro arcade VIP party on the Saturday?

    #55 5 months ago

    That is correct, we extended out the women’s and Pro Pinball Tournament due to demand of those tournaments so if you want the party experience Friday night is your night. Saturday can party but won’t be full music and stuff like the VIP party.

    Hey all, just dialed in a Weekend Pass.
    But not to go all weird on you weirdos, Im looking to hang out and crush beers and play pinball all weekend, but I’m coming by myself as zero if my buds are pinheads. Already chatted with my messaging buddy sixtyfourbits that I’m looking to meet some folks and have good times! The wife and kids are not interested, so, please don’t be shy to message me, find me, grab my cell # and let’s get at ‘er for a weekend!!

    #57 5 months ago

    i like beer, and i guess pinball too...

    #58 5 months ago

    Looks like there will be one less spot available in the playoffs for everyone because after a 2 year Friday only appearance, The Diggler is returning for a full weekend of Yegpin pinball madness

    Is that same tournement with 2x6s under the legs to make the games more enjoyable to play?

    #73 4 months ago

    The short answer is yes, the long answer is we try to maintain the following slope ratings on all of our games as follows:

    Modern: 7.5 - 8.0
    Solid States: 7.0 - 7.5
    EM: 6.5 - 7.0

    There are occasions where it makes sense to physically increase the height of the machine. Games with too short of legs that cannot be increased or machines that need further help to meet our standards. All of this is in an effort to give a consistent play across machines. Increase the slope can make the machine harder or easier depending on the specific title. More of a concern for hardness would be the sensitive slings, reducing of multiball ball save timers, no ball saves, changing of flippers to lightning flippers and open or advanced outlanes.

    Enjoy!!!!

    they like them steeper than factory recommenced settings. It makes them loads of fun to play..lol

    Hey folks, I was reading up on the YEGpin tournaments.

    Couple of Q's for you (tournament) regulars.

    OK I see this info taken from website.

    ""Top 16 scores will qualify for main draw. The next 4 scores will qualify for B Division (must be at least 1000 or greater in IFPA ranking to qualify). The next 4 will qualify for Novice Division (must be at least 2500 or greater in IFPA ranking to qualify)""

    OK, I am a novice (casual) pinball player, and I play at my house regularly, I am not ranked, I don't have access to other pins or league nights or fuck all because of my location.
    BUT, now my question--- say I luck out and I end up in the novice division because I had the day of my life in qualifying. Does this mean, I am done for tourney and cannot go farther anyway?

    I want to come, dip my toes into some competitive pinball, the cancer tourney looks fun, mostly for the experience and good times, probly gonna be drunk. But is it worth it? the tournament I mean, not the beer, that IS going to happen.

    edit- ok, I mis-understood, 2500 or greater. I read it as better, it should read as 2500 and worse-ly ranked. LOL

    #80 4 months ago

    Top 16 are top 16 regardless of rank. The higher ranked players can’t qualify for B or novice divisions. They are A restricted.

    If you land in the B or novice playoffs, not in the top 16, you can only win that respective playoff. You can’t win B for example and re join the A playoffs. Still worth playing for b and novice cuz there’s usually cash and or plaques.

    Some updates on the show:

    - We are almost 90% sold for YEGPIN VIP tickets, only have 18 left (6 Hardcore & 12 Ultimate VIP tickets).

    Ticket can be purchased here:

    https://www.yegpin.com/product-category/all_items/

    - There are currently 169 competitors (VIP, Full-Time Volunteers, Donors) registered for the Canadian Pinball Championships and Classics Tournament.

    https://www.yegpin.com/tournament-participants/

    - We have 92 pinball machines and 28 arcade games so far donated for the weekend and we still have another three months to acquire many more!!!! If you would like to bring a game to the event please use the following link:

    https://www.yegpin.com/bring-a-game/

    - We have received a number of great donations of goods from pinball companies and local companies for our silent auction prizes

    - We have our art finalized and are close to printing all of the shirts, hoodies, passes, lanyards and other goodies for the show.

    Please note:

    - VIP ticket sales will be cutoff on March 1st, 2020 or when they are sold out.

    - Weekend passes for YEGPIN will increase from $55 to $60 on same day so if you want a discount on a weekend pass don't hesitate to purchase before the cutoff.

    The great thing about YEGPIN tournaments is that they are truly for all skill levels so it doesn't matter if you think you suck you can actually have a chance for the playoffs in your skill level.

    We have trophies, plaques and cash for each division (Main, B and Novice) for the Canadian Pinball Championship and Classics Pinball Tournament.

    To answer your question:

    In the Main, the top 24 overall qualify. Then we take the next best 8 that have an IFPA ranking of 1000 or higher for B Division, then we take the next four that have an IFPA ranking of 2500 or higher for Novice. There is no restrictions in that if you play really well you can qualify for the main, however, you have extra chances to qualify for trophies, plaques and cash if you qualify in the lower divisions instead.

    In the Classics, it is the same except that the top 16 advance (unless we reach over 160 participants which we may very well do).

    Quoted from northerndude:

    ""Top 16 scores will qualify for main draw. The next 4 scores will qualify for B Division (must be at least 1000 or greater in IFPA ranking to qualify). The next 4 will qualify for Novice Division (must be at least 2500 or greater in IFPA ranking to qualify)""

    We have updated the website again thanks to a collector and vendor community for supporting this event the lineup for the show is simply outstanding so far.

    If you are on the fence to donate don't hesitate bring your machine to the show and share it with the community for the weekend!!!

    A reminder that we are one of the only show that offers the collector community a chance to win your very own pinball machine valued at close to $8000!!! It is also a great way to get into the show for free!!!

    As of right now there are a total of 132 entries to win the NIB pinball machine that will be announced on the Friday night.

    You get:

    1 entry for a EM/Solid State pinball machine
    2 entries for a Modern/LCD pinball machine
    3 entries for Premium or LE pinball machines

    1 extra entry is you deliver and pickup your machine
    1 extra entry if we use it in any of our pinball tournaments.

    So for certain machines you can get up to 5 entries per machine!!!!

    If you would like to donate your machine for the event please use the following form.

    Tickets sales have been fast and furious over the past couple of days, there are only 10 VIP tickets in total left for this event, there are a total of 189 people registered (VIP's, Volunteers and Donors) for the Canadian Pinball Championship and Classic Pinball Tournament which I believe would make this the biggest tournament ever held in Canada. Be a part of Canadian pinball history and ensure you get your VIP ticket for the show!!!

    Once these VIP tickets are sold out there will be no more, however, you will still be able to purchase a weekend pass online or day tickets at the door.
