Gameplay will start promptly at 12:30PM on both days and end once all rounds are completed. Competitors must be 21+ to participate.

On-site registration will be available if there is room, a waitlist will also be put into place if necessary.

When competitors arrive for registration please bring a valid ID (21+), ticket purchase confirmation number (if ticket was purchased online) and IFPA number (if applicable).

All machines will be on freeplay for the entirety of the tournament and tournament games will be blocked off from public play. The Q-Lounge will serve as headquarters for NorthWest Pin Fest and will be private to tournament staff and competitors only. “Pinball Alley” in the Q-Lab will be formatted specially for this tournament to allow maximum space for players, the rest of the Q-Lab will be open to the public to encourage spectators to come and enjoy the fun.

We will have coffee and water available for free in the Q-Lounge and all other food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be available for purchase at both the bars in the venue beginning at 12:00PM. There will be a scheduled 1 hour lunch break each day, times TBA.

The first day of tournament play will consist of 128 players (max) competing in 10 rounds of match play format in groups of 4. The first match drawn will be random, the proceeding rounds will be balanced pairings where players will be placed in a group with opponents they haven’t faced previously. 7/5/3/1 scoring will be used for all 10 rounds on Saturday.

The top half of players based on match play points from the previous day will be placed in A Division and the remaining players in B Division. Players will be paired together in groups of 4, the first and second finishers advance in the bracket, while the 3rd and 4th players receive one strike. A and B Division matchups will be determined by fold pairing, where the highest seeded players will be paired against the lowest seeded players and will continue as such through the finals. This is a two strike knockout bracket.

This tournament is IFPA Endorsed.
