    Tournament rules are now available in the forum as well as on our FB page. It is likely to be a bit confusing. Post questions here and I will clarify them.

    Due to a decided lack of participation in my poll, I have decided on a different tournament format. The short version is as follows:
    Less than 30 entered by 1pm- one game on each of 8 tournament machines
    31-40 entered by 1pm- one game on 6 of the eight tournament machines as chosen by the player
    >40 entered by 1pm- one game on 4 of the 8 tournament machines as chosen by the player
    Top 8 qualifiers- A division single-elimination final
    9-16 qualifiers- B division "
    15-24 qualifiers- C division "
    I will post full rules soon and will select tournament games by early next week.
    I also hope to have trophies for 1st-3rd in each division.

    Hey I am gettin a shaker motor for the acdc premium. Should be awesome. Still deciding if I want to beef up the not so loud speakers. I really want to FEEL the game y know

    • Shawn L.

      Shaker is great on AC/DC. Some people swear by external subs. I haven't tried that. I'm quite satisfied with the sound as it is, but let us know how it works out!

    Entry fee will be $20 or $10 worth of non-perishable food items.

    Hey gang. I've decided to let you all choose the tournament format. There are two options. The first is a qualifying format similar to previous tournaments, with the change that there will only be one entry per machine, but you will play eight different machines. The second is a head-to-head, match play double elimination format with random machine assignments likely using a bank of eight machines.
    Go to the poll section and vote!

      Of course whatever we do, it will be great fun!

      November 13, 2013

    • Shawn L.

      It will be no more than double elimination. Any more than that would be much harder to manage and run too long. I do think 10 minutes per game is a bit too long and I would expect 5-7 min on average.

  • L.E. Talbott j.

    I will be there!
