    Amusement Worx April May Mini League

    The format for this tournament at Amusement Worx is a Mini League.

    All the tournament information is on the IFPA calendar and also on the Amusement Worx Facebook page. I have also included the information below. Please read this carefully and note that selfies cannot be accepted for logging scores. Players must register scores with an official scorer.

    Basically, unlimited hours of qualifying will be available during Amusement Worx opening times (Monday to Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays from 10am-1pm) from Monday April sixteenth to Friday June first inclusive.

    Two machines will be set to $1 per play and players can have as many games as they want during the qualifying period.

    For qualifying, each playerís 2 highest scores on each of the 2 machines will be used to determine the finalist spots.

    PRIZE MONEY: half the money paid into the two machines during the qualifying period will go toward prize money for first, second and third places.

    Any questions at all let me know and I will get back to you asap.

    DATES:
    QUALIFYING: During business hours at Amusement Worx (Monday to Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays from 10am-1pm) from Monday April sixteenth to Friday June first inclusive.

    They haven't worked that out yet.

    They would like Devil King as one but have to check coin mechs etc.

    Yes!

    A short player like D King and a long player would be an ideal combo

    That is going to smash my rating. I donít think you even get my half point added to the pot because I didnít play half the qualifying games.
