Saturday, 11. February 2017, Renton, IFPA WA State Pinball Championships and Match Play Tourney

The IFPA Washington State Pinball Championships return to 8-Bit Arcade, with a Match Play tournament for all, and the Championships for the top 16 players in the state for 2016!

This year, the 2017 Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show is sponsoring the event with boosted prizes in both tournaments. $100 will be added to the Match Play Tournament pool, while $200 will be added to a side-pot of the State Championships. NWPAS T-shirts and other prizes will also be part of the prizes given out during the event.

The state championships begin at Noon. Invitations will be sent out in January to qualified players and alternates. Entry is $30 which includes an optional $10 side-pot contribution, to be eligible for the added $200 in prizes. Without that contribution, players are eligible for the standard IFPA payout of 100/70/50. If at least 12 players join the side pot, the payouts for those players will be at least 250/150/100/50. Format is same as prior years, a single-elimination bracket, with best-of-7 head-to-head matches each round. The winner also receives a trophy and invitation to play in the IFPA National Championships. Lunch and games for state finalists will also be provided, courtesy of 8-Bit Arcade!

The match-play tournament will begin approx 2:30pm, and consist of 7 rounds of 3 or 4-player matches for qualifying, with top 8 making it to semi-finals (additional playoff spots if more than 48 players). The semi-finals and finals will both be 2-game rounds of 4-player match play (with 3rd game for tie-breaking only), with top two moving on to next round. Guaranteed $150 for the winner. And since the top players will likely be focused on the state championship tourney, even more opportunity for everyone else to gain those top prizes!
