IFPA Tennessee State Pinball Championship for 2022 – Nashville, TN
January 21 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm CST
The top 24 IFPA point earners in 2022 will be invited to play for the TN State Championship title and the winner (or alternate) will earn an invite to the North American Pinball Championship (NACS). This tournament will be a head to head single elimination bracket with best of 7 matches. Players will be seeded according to IFPA TN state standings. Top 8 in the field of 24 will get a first round bye.
Each match will be a best-of-seven. The higher seeded player will have choice of machine or position for the 1st game, with the loser of each subsequent game having choice of machine or order, until someone has won 4 games. A machine may not be played more than once in the same match unless there are less than 7 machines available. If that is the case, only after all machines have been chosen can either player select that game to be played for a second time within the same match. Once a player verbally announces their game choice, or chooses position, that decision will be locked in and cannot be changed.
Each player will have the opportunity for 30 seconds of practice time before starting every game of every match. This is to ensure that both players have a chance to get familiar with the machine.
The winner of the match advances to the next round, while the loser is eliminated.
The 3rd/4th place Consolation Final will be played as a best-of-three instead of a best-of-seven like all other rounds, using the same rules. It is up to the IFPA State Representative as to whether matches will be played out to determine 5th through 24th place.
