Format update for any future Flip Frenzy's at Netherworld mates. Reducing the amount of players slightly and adding a finals component.



New Format:

Quick Overview

  • Players compete in head to head matches over 3 hours.
  • The top 4 players at the completion of the 3 hours will play off in a best of 3 games, 4 player matchplay final

Format Details


  • First, each machine is randomly assigned two players. The remaining players are placed in one central queue
  • When a match is completed: - both players return to the tournament directors desk to record result - the loser stays on the machine they just played, unless he/she has lost twice consecutively, in which case the winner stays on - 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
  • At the end of 3 hours no more games may start. Ties will be broken by the most wins.
  • Extra balls turned off when possible
  • All rulings and malfunctions will be based on the rules for the IFPA World Pinball Championship
