When we set up Pinburgh 2011 back in October, we crossed our fingers and hoped players would want to attend a large-scale match-play tournament at PAPA. The prize pool was set for $13,000, in hopes that 130 players would register and play. The tournament will be held on 150 unique pinball machines in 50 groups of 3:
As of 8 am, there are 171 players registered for Pinburgh.
From now until 11 am, every new registration will increase the prize pool by $100 above its current $17,100. Get over here. If you’re still deciding whether or not to attend, ask someone who is…
We look forward to meeting almost three dozen players who have never played at a PAPA tournament before, and the more than ten dozen who have. We think the match play will help everyone meet new players from all over the world, then rejoice in a shared pinball experience like no other.
We’re making it happen today — big thanks to Kevin, Steve, and Mark for all they’ve contributed. We’re not sure, but we think Pinburgh 2011 is the largest match-play pinball tournament ever held. Join in, or circle August 11-14 2011 for the PAPA World Pinball Championships and maybe save some room for March 2012…
Thanks for playing.
