    Also 1UP Arcade, but their pinball selection is in fairly average shape, save for a few machines. Great arcade lineup though.

    It also would have been good if they'd marked them as DISCONTINUED on their website so I knew to buy a lot more of them before they started running out!!!

    2. When a match is completed:
    - both players return to the tournament directors desk and record result
    - the loser returns to the machine they just come from, unless he/she has lost twice consecutively, in which case the winner returns
    - the other player goes to the rear of the queue
    - the player at the front of the queue moves up to compete against the player staying on the machine
    - Scott's software determines playing order at all times

    3. At the end of 3 hours no more games may start

    4. All attempts will be made for extra balls to be disabled for all machines

    5. All rulings and malfunctions will be based on the rules for the IFPA World Pinball Championship
