The Pinburgh Match-Play Championship, a PAPA event sponsored by pair Networks Inc., is the largest pinball tournament in the world, featuring 280 pinball machines and 700 players battling the silverball over three days (Thurs – Sat) of competition. Pinburgh will offer plaques for all of the top finishers in each division and a guaranteed $100,000 prize pool.

Pinburgh’s match-play format offers a social experience as players from all over the world compare skills during a series of multiplayer matches spanning the first two days. On Thursday, each player will compete in five rounds, each consisting of four, four-player matches to determine the appropriate skill division for all players. Divisions will be marked as A / B / C / D, with Division A being the most skilled. On Friday, players will compete against other players solely within their own skill division in order to determine seeding for the final rounds. On Saturday, the top 40 in each division will compete in separate divisional finals. As an added bonus, any players who do not qualify for one of the four main divisional finals will be eligible to compete in a consolation tournament, complete with its own set of plaques and non-cash prizes for the top four finishers.

Pinburgh competitors must pay a $100 tournament registration fee in addition to general admission, making the total cost for Pinburgh and a full event pass $194.99. Refund requests for general admission tickets will be honored until July 21, 2016. Players requesting a refund for the additional tournament registration fee between December 1, 2015 and March 15, 2016 will receive a full 100% refund. Players requesting a similar refund between March 16, 2016 and June 30, 2016 will receive a 50% refund. Players requesting a refund for the tournament fee between July 1, 2016 and July 21, 2016 will receive a 25% refund. No Pinburgh registration refunds will be given after July 21, 2016 for any reason. All games used in the Pinburgh tournament will remain on free-play, keeping the overall cost of the event in-line with previous years.

All 160 divisional finalists receive prize money!

Intergalactic Championship

Intergalactic Pinball Championship

OVERVIEW:
In lieu of a consolation tournament for Pinburgh, ReplayFX will now include a second WPPR-eligible pinball tournament open to all players. This tournament has been structured in a way to give anyone who desires more competitive pinball during the ReplayFX weekend a chance to continue playing, and also as a way to solicit donations for a group of charities hand-picked by the Replay Foundation staff. The tournament format will be Limited Best Game.

In exchange for a $10 donation toward one of the charities listed below, each player will receive 10 tickets, with each ticket representing one game on a qualifying machine. Players may not purchase additional tickets, which makes this tournament “limited” when compared to other Best Game or “Herb”-style pinball tournaments. The available qualifying bank will consist of 12 pinball machines drawn from all eras.

Qualifying scoring will follow standard PAPA World Championship procedures:
1st place on a qualifying machine will equal 100 points, 2nd will equal 90 points, 3rd will equal 85 points, 4th will equal 84 points, and so on. The sum of points from the player’s best scores on 4 games will be used to rank players throughout the qualifying portion of the tournament. Only a player’s best score on each machine will be counted.

This is an IFPA endorsed tournament; anyone is eligible to play.

SCHEDULE:

Saturday
10:00am – Open qualifying and registration.
10:00am – 5:00pm – Qualifying open.
5:00pm – 9:00pm – Qualifying closed. Go watch Pinburgh finals.
9:00pm – 1:30am – Qualifying re-opens.
1:30am – Qualifying ends.

Sunday
9:00 – 9:30am – Check-In for Finals
9:30am – Finals Begin

COST:
$10 donation to any of the following charities at registration: Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, RAINN, Replay Foundation, Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, or Wounded Warrior Project.

FINALS:
At the end of qualifying on Saturday, the top 40 players will qualify for finals on Sunday.

Finals will be conducted as a 3 strike knockout tournament. Players will be grouped in 3 or 4 player groups and play one randomly assigned game. Players will record the results and return the scoresheet to the registration desk. The players who finish 3rd and 4th (or 2nd and 3rd in 3 player groups) will receive strikes.

After all results are recorded groups will be drawn again. Players will be grouped with other players with a similar number of strikes. Once a player has received 3 strikes they are eliminated from the event.

Play continues until there is only 1 player remaining. That player will be crowned the Intergalactic Pinball Champion.

PRIZES:
All prizes consist of ReplayFX store credit. All credit won must be redeemed before the end of the show Sunday at 5pm.

  • 1st: $150 +Trophy
  • 2nd: $100 +medal
  • 3rd: $70 +medal
  • 4th: $50 +medal
  • 5th-10th: $30
  • 11th-20th: $25
  • 21st-30th: $20

Any ties in final standings will be decided by initial qualifying seed.
