Tournament at Kimballs, 7pm, Tuesday 10/9

October 8, 2012

Kimballs Carnival, 522 2nd Street in Oakland. $5 entry, plus coin drop.  The current lineup is: Medieval Madness, Scared Stiff, Simpsons Pinball Party, Twilight Zone, ACDC and White Water.

Tomorrow night’s tournament will award World Pinball Player Ranking Points (http://pinballrankings.com).

Additionally, all entrants will receive two coupons good for $5 off entry to Pacific Pinball Museum and Playland-not-at-the-Beach.  I also have some Playland passes to raffle off.

The format is Double-Elimination Time Attack.

Double-elimination means you must lose two matches in order to be knocked out of the tournament.

In each Match, two players are assigned two games.  The clock is started and the players try to achieve the best score possible, write down their scores for their opponent to see, and then switch games.  They then play a second 2-minute game.

The winner either wins both games outright, or if each player wins one game then the winner is the player whose winning game was better.

Example: 

Nina wins the match because her winning game was better than Zoe’s winning game.

The calculation is 1 – (lowerscore/higherscore).  If you’re not math-inclined we’ll help you out.

Reminder: No outside food or drinks at Kimballs (I recommend the $5 pizza or the Quesadilla)
