Registration Link: Register Now!

Tournament Details

  • August 12th, 2023 at the Lower Playfield in Goffstown NH.
  • Doors at 11 AM, Tournament starts promptly at noon.
  • 32 player limit
  • This event is IFPA sanctioned
  • Registration begins June 23rd at noon Eastern time.
  • $25 per player ($15 prize pool, $9 house fee for free play, electricity offset, snacks and drinks, $1 IFPA Endorsement fee) is due via Paypal/Venmo within 72h of registration. Cash at door accepted for players who have played 2 tournaments in the last year here — you must contact Derek or Jordan to make arrangements if you’re paying cash at door or some other way.

Target Matchplay using IFPA Scoring (7/5/3/1 or 7/4/1), on alternating banks of “longer playing” and “shorter playing” games. Groups will be randomly assigned to start, then fully swissed — keeping everyone in the game the whole way through. Players will break on through to the finals side after hitting 45 points — and the tournament proper doesn’t end until 4 players hit the 45 point target (or 3 rounds after the first player hits the target — whichever comes first). Those top 4 players will play a 4 game final to determine the ultimate winner. Players 5-8 will play a single game to win a small prize. Will your mojo be risin’? Will you light a fire? Can you break on through?

We anticipate, based on past tournaments, the Matchplay portion to take roughly 4-5 hours, and the finals to take an additional hour. We have similar formats before and feel reasonably confident in these time estimates.
