    FLIP FRENZY EVENT DETAILS

    Quick Overview

    Players compete in head to head matches over 3 hours. The player with the most wins and least losses at the end of the allotted time is declared the winner.

    • Doors at 8am with machines on free play for warm up
    • Briefing at 8:45
    • Start at 9am


    Tickets will be available via eventbrite.com.au two weeks prior to the event. Watch Aussie Arcade and the venue facebook page for ticket release times.

    Format Details
    1. First, each machine is randomly assigned two players. Playing order is determined by Barber's software. The remaining players are placed in one central queue

    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

    Boring year coming up. Hardly any pinball at all…

    I think I'll be requiring a subscription fee for access to the bloody Upcoming Competitions list…

    May the pinballs tumble in your direction!

    Yeh @Jimmi Nails , you need to organise a pinball comp for every week of the year, just so @Michi doesn't get bored playing Game of Thrones at Corey's place all the time. Forget the arcade/beer/pop culture events and stick to the important stuff. . . lol
