  • Pinburgh III here we come!!!

    Finally got round to booking flights and will be leaving on the 5th of April. The first event is a PAPA style event on Monday the 8th, with events running on Tuesday and Wednesday with Pinburgh stating on the Friday. 40 rounds without getting knocked out and the chance to play with some 150+ people that I have never meet. Let the madness begin!

    I will again be taking a laptop and will cover the entire trip as I did with the IFPA9 thread. The PAPA complex has wifi so I will be doing updates from there as well.

            It looks like this would be amazing. They have done a fantastic job putting it altogether. All those games on free play .. I wouldn't leave for a month .
            Good luck mate, I hope you go really well and bring home the big prize. Regardless, you are going to have a ball no matter what I bet.
            Cheers and enjoy.

                      HOLY CR*P ...... it's like Pinball Nirvana.
                      I'd be going straight for the Wizard I think (don't laugh).
                      What an amazing mix of vintage and modern .. not to mention the comp which looks like it's been organised fantastically.
                      Can't wait for the updates or any pics you might take.
                      Again good luck .. may the balls be with you

                          I don't know much about tournaments but after watching that video you put up, you could just tell they have thought about everything and structured it so well.
                          It's nice too I think that they've made it accessible and interesting and interactive for anyone who wants to come along and play and learn about pinball .. and to watch people play competitively.
                          Full credit to the organisers, competitors and visitors ... Could be the trip of a lifetime I reckon

                            "Pinburgh features guaranteed match play for two full days for each and every participating player, regardless of skill level. As a player, you will spend Friday competing in a series of four-player groups (occasionally three-player). For each session, you will be seeded based on your performance up to that point. Expect to spend approximately ten hours playing pinball competitively on Friday.

                            On Saturday, you will be assigned to the A, B, C, or D Division based on your play up to that point. Some players will have pre-existing restrictions which may require them to be in the A or B Division, regardless of how well they play on Friday. You will then spend another ten hours playing in another series of four-player groups, which will determine whether or not you qualify for finals play on Sunday. In the C and D Divisions, your record from Friday will be discarded, but for A and B Divisions, your record is cumulative over both days.

                            On Sunday, there is a double-elimination consolation tournament for players who didn't make it into the finals. The Pinburgh finals are similar to the finals of the PAPA World Pinball Championships.

                            $150 gets you into the tournament and guarantees you 20 or more hours of pinball! Tokens are sold in rolls of $10, and token proceeds go towards charity. Each roll of tokens will include an ultra-rare token only available at Pinburgh, and you should expect to spend a minimum of $20 (two rolls) while competing.

                            Yes, the facility will be open to spectators, with no admission fee! There will be over 200 pinball machines available for token play. Come on out! Bring your friends! "

                              Do you have a preferred bank of 4 games that you know you'd do well on?.
