    TOURNAMENT FORMATS


    Best Game Card.

    1. Friday 12th of April 2019. 4pm-11pm - Qualifying, 7 hour period. Unlimited number of 7 game cards.
    2. Saturday 13th of April 3pm-6:30pm - Finals for top 50%, or top 16 players, whichever is the lesser. Top qualifiers may get a bye depending on numbers.
    3. Format Type: Papa Style Card Based qualifying (7 games per card, 7 hours of qualifying). Single Elimination finals (best of 5 games).
    4. For Each Card you nominate 7 of the available Arenas (machines), and record your score for One Game (one attempt) at each of your nominated Arenas.
    5. Upon completing their game all players must request a scorekeeper to have their result verified, it is then registered and entered into Matchplay.
    6. Once a Card is completed, it is submitted. The player can then nominate a new card.
    7. "Selfies" are not acceptable for verification of game scores.
    8. Entry fee includes unlimited number of cards. Only the players highest scoring Card will be counted.


    Group Knockout.

    1. Information and questions from players 9:50am.
    2. Tournament: Saturday 10am-2:30pm.
    3. 7-strike group knockout tournament.
    4. For each round you will be placed in a group of four (or three if odd number of entrants) and allocated a machine to play one game on. In 4 player matches, whoever finshes Second and Third will receive 1 strike, whoever finishes Fourth receives 2 strikes. In 3 player matches, whoever finshes Second will receive 1 strike, whoever finishes Third receives 2 strikes. You stay in the comp until you receive Seven Strikes. Last player standing is the winner.


    Flip Frenzy.

    1. Saturday evening - 8.00-11.00pm.
    2. Once all players have registered, the number of players will be divided by 2.4 to determine how many machines will be used for the tournament.
    3. As soon as we go through all the info each machine is randomly assigned 2 players. The remaining players are placed in a queue.
    4. We press the start button on the stop watch and away we go (in this case 3 hours).
    5. When a match is completed:
    - the players circle the winner on the score card and the loser stays on the machine, unless he/she has lost twice consecutively, in which case the winner stays on.
    - the person leaving the machine hands the score card to the scorer at the computer. That person then heads to the rear of the queue. When waiting in the queue, the player grabs a score card and fills in their name in player 2 position so it is ready to go.
    - THE PLAYER STAYING ON THE MACHINE PLAYS IN POSITION 1.
    - the player at the front of the queue moves up to play the player staying on the machine.
    6. At the end of 3 hours no more games may start. Whoever wins the most games in that time is declared the winner. Ties will be broken by the fewest losses and if still tied, by a single game playoff on a machine chosen at random. Ties will only be broken for first, second and third places.



    Group Matchplay.

    1. Sunday from 10am-3pm.
    2. There will be 6 rounds of 2 matches (12 games per player).
    3. In each round players will be placed in groups of 4 (or 3 if odd numbers).
    4. In each round each group will play a single game on two different machines and allocated points according to their finishing position; 7/5/3/1 for four player groups and 7/4/1 for three players groups. This is the IFPA system of scoring.
    5. For the first round, groupings will be random.
    6. After the first round, groupings will be balanced.
    7. At the close of the sixth round, the player with the highest points score will be declared the tournament winner.
    8. Ties will be broken by the number of first place finishes, then by the number of second place finishes and finally, if necessary, a single game play-off. Ties will only be broken for first, second and third places.

    There will be Trophies for each event as well as cash prizes. There will be special custom made trophies for the Flip Frenzy!

    Entry at the door, or in the last two weeks prior to the event, will be $40 per event or $120 for all four over the weekend.

    Entries paid/finalised before close of business on Friday 29th March 2019 will be discounted; $30 per event or $90 for all four.



    After the 2018 Federal event it is easier to estimate how many entrants the venue can comfortably accommodate. We are looking at a cap of about 48 players.

    I believe Mark is planning to have a wider range of food available for those not wanting to eat out elsewhere.



    Here is the facebook page for the venue :

    Some games might be modified from their original specification. Any modifications will be highlighted.



    From the outset I will state that if you do need accommodation book it as early as possible or risk facing No Vacancy! .... Do Not underestimate the capacity for Spontaneous Nyrstar Furnace Shutdowns (or any other unexpected events) to occupy All Available Accommodation in town for A Month Or More, at the bat of an eyelid!!. .... BOOK NOW!, you can easily cancel if it turns out you can not make it.

    Here are some accommodation options....

          Once a few more requests for registration come in a Registration list will be started, along with the Tournament Details being finalised and written up.

          Custom trophies will be a new design for 2019, development is still in infancy but they will be revealed in the weeks leading up to the event
