  • Registration:

    • $40.00, plus cost of games (prices are shown on the games list linked below).

    • Tournament will be capped at a maximum of 64 players.

    • Online pre-registration has ended.  If you'd like to register, please contact Adam L.

  • Format:

    • 3 rounds of Pinburgh/IFPA 4-player groups playing games from all eras for seeding into a head-to-head match play, double elimination bracket finals.  Note that groups will not be reseeded based upon results from the previous round, but rather randomly set up all 3 rounds ahead of time to ensure 9 unique opponents, 9 unique games and a reasonable WPPR-ranked distribution for all players.

      • Head-to-head finals: Matches on the losers side will be best 2-out-of-3 and matches on the winners side will be best   2-out-of-3 for the round of 32, and then best 3-out-of-5 from then on.  Higher seed will have choice of game or order for game 1, and from then on the loser of the previous game will have first choice.  The top 16 players from the group phase will earn a first round bye for finals, while the bottom 16 players from the group phase will start match play with one "loss" on the losers side of the bracket.

  • Pinball Games:

    • LCP public gameroom: Games change frequently, so check the list for up-to-date information.
