Birthday Pinball Rules
When: Saturday, August 24, 2019 (12:00pm - 2:00pm) for qualifying rounds. Playoffs begin at 2:30 pm.
Qualifying: Every player can play as often as they would like during the qualifying time. To enter, a participant must place their name on the list with a scorekeeper and are asked to queue and be ready to play when it is their turn. After playing, score is recorded by the Tournament Director or designated scorekeeper and verified by the player. All Queues WILL BE CAPPED at 2:00pm, meaning no further names may be added to the queue after 2:00pm. Players will be scored based on their finishing position across ALL games (i.e. 100 points for highest score per machine). Top 8 qualifiers at the end of qualifying will be used to determine the final positions (Top 8 will advance to playoffs). All players must be present in the tournament area at 2:25pm for finals. Any qualifier who is not present in the tournament area at 2:25pm will forfeit their position, and the next highest eligible qualifier will advance to finals.
The eight (8) players who score the top score during the qualifying period will advance to finals. Finals will be a three-strike knockout with four player groups, where the third and fourth-place player will receive strikes. In a three player group, only the third place player will receive a strike. Players with three strikes will be eliminated from the tournament, until one player remains.
All final decisions are that of the tournament director.
