      What a fun tournament! Thanks @Dedrok and @genex

      There were a few people there who had never played in a tournament before, but I think it was probably one of the best formats for a newbie. After we got our cards and played the first round, it wasn't long until people started using the cards and causing havoc.

      Great example was our groups game on Spiderman. All 4 players play the first ball with scores at 10mil, 120mil, 3mil and 2mil. FORTUNE Card gets played to switch scores with the highest score. Player blocks that attempt with a SHATTER card. Then another player uses the BOMBA card to restart entire game. After starting the next game, after 2 balls the scores are similar to the first round but then a player uses the MEGA FORTUNE card to steal the points from highest scoring player.

      Some of the other cards played were covering up the displays, changing players from one group to another and forcing a player to use a random card. Having rounds where extra cards could be awarded was a bonus, so that people could win more cards if they had used them all up.

      The friend I brought along had never played in a pinball comp before but still managed a top 10 finish (out of 16 and said he had a great time. Would come along to some more comps (if there were any more in Newy) I guess it was more of a social meet rather than a serious comp, and each player got to play the same amount of games. Wasn't a harsh comp for beginners like a knockout tournament.

      Would be good to have some more events like that happening. I know Tez has the cards now so if anyone wants to try out this format let him know.

      Thanks to the organizers & to all that came to make it a great night. Nice twist with the card format. It took away the seriousness that often goes with comp

      In case anyone wanted to know the final standings (and doesn't have a MatchPlay account)

      I felt bad for Pat with the Spiderman game.... In one game all 4 players played a card and other than his attempt to save himself, they were all against him... Unfortunately Pat never beat his own score from his first two balls of the restarted game that was stolen from him with the last ball he was given from Darryl's game. Pat did manage a second place though.

      Brett wasn't able to put himself back in the lead after a good first ball on CSI was stolen by William.

      These two games with cards being played were a big part of William finishing 2nd place, Pat not finishing in second and Brett not being higher than 4 on the leader board.

      I want to thank everybody for a fun night.

      And Brett. Especially Brett. I was saving the card for Eddy but what can you do.
