      Greetings pinball lovers.
      I am running 2 x tournaments + it also doubles up as a regular AA meet.
      Date: 30/12/2017

      I am located in Balwyn North and will PM people the address who are interested. This meet/comp is open to everyone

      Doors are open from 1pm and close at 11.30pm.

      ****************************************
      Tournament 1 - Flip Frenzy *IFPA APPROVED*
      Cost: $10
      Players: 32. Might be able to increase depending how machine I can get.
      Name: Chaos in Melbourne City - Flip Frenzy
      Date: 30/12/2017
      Format Description : 3.5 hour Flip Frenzy
      Time: 2 sharp to 5. 30pm

      Win as many head-to-head games as you can in 3.5 hours. Loser stays on until they lose two in a row.
      Players will be ranked by most wins, then fewest losses. If there is a tie for position 1~3, a tiebreaker game will be played.
      Extra balls will be off and machines will be set up fast.

      Cash/Trophies for the top 3 players.


      Machine list (subject to change)
      --------------
      Stern - Metallica LE
      Stern - Tron LE
      Stern - Sea Witch
      Stern - Simpsons Pinball Party

      ****************************************
      Tournament 2 - Heads Up *IFPA APPROVED*
      Cost : $15
      Players: 16. Might be able to increase depending how many double machines I can get.
      Name: Chaos in Melbourne City - Heads up
      Date: 30/12/2017
      Format Description : Heads-up!
      Time: 6.30pm until finished, estimating it will go until 10pm


      Players will be seeded into a best-of-3 elimination bracket based on their IFPA rank at the time of the event.

      The matches will consist of Head-to-Head Challenges being played out simultaneously on two different machines of the same title. Whichever player completes the challenge first is declared the winner for that game. Matches will be played on games chosen at random by tournament directors. If you win 2 games you advance to the next stage. If you lose your best of 3 you will be eliminated. Brackets will Round 1 - 16 players. Round 2 - 8 players. Round 3 - 4 players. And then the finals Between 1 vs 2, and 3 vs 4.

      For example. 2 people are playing Star Trek LE side by Side. The first person the gets to Warp 9.1 wins.
      I will provide a full list of possible objectives ASAP to ensure people can practice beforehand.
      Machines will be on 5 ball so you can use strategic draining if needed. If your game is over you can start again. If the game is not over within 10 minutes the objective will be lowered.

      Cash/Trophies for the top 3 players.

      Machine list (subject to change)
      --------------
      Stern - Star Trek LE
      JJP - Wizard of Oz LE

      If you have any of the other titles that you would like to lend for the day it would be greatly appreciated and help me increase the numbers, Prefer a new stern like Metallica Prem/LE or AC/DC prem/LE but open to anything. If you donate a machine entry is free obviously


      *******************************************


      Payment in advance, please PM me for details or email at ryancazz /-\t gmail dot com ! First in best dressed!

      My mission (if I choose to accept it ) is to find every TZ on the planet and get them corrected if their caps are in the wrong order. Hardest part will be getting the flyer corrected

      Um... if you need them (and can organise transport and don't get them mixed up ) I don't get your post. I was talking about the format description (sorry, didn't write 'format'). It says 3 hr flip frenzy for T2 (copy/paste from T1??) Unless I don't understand the format

      Has this heads up tournament with 2 of the same game side by side been done before??

      Couldn't one player be at an advantage/disadvantage as no two games are alike

      Shouldn't you do it on the same machine??

      It's been done once in the US recently. It's a new format and first time it's being done in Australia. Both those machines are huo and will be set up the same. Of course there will be tiny tiny differences but the objectives will be simple enough that it won't matter.

      Run on one machine? No. The fun of this format is that you are racing against the other person at the same time. Which leads to high amounts of stress since you can see the person and hear their game!
      Karl deangelo in the US lost the final by 1 tie fighter. 1 tie fighter more and he would have won a NIB stern machine
