Looks like we made it? Yep, 2 years of the Lower Playfield! It’s hard to believe, right? I mean, who knows how long this will keep going, so let’s celebrate with a pinball party!

Players should be ready to do a lot of ballin’, as we’re bringing back Flip Frenzy! Two players play on a random game of all the games at TLP head to head! Player 1 will log the results (who won/lost) at the central computer at the bar, then be told who their next opponent is! After playing 2 games, take a short break in the queue for a few minutes until your next game! At the conclusion, the top 16 will move on to a final, and the bottom 16 will also move on to a final! Ties will be broken by win differential, followed by most wins. Anyone tied in differential on the line between the two finals will play a tiebreaker on Meteor. If Meteor is unavailable, the TD will select a game for tiebreakers.

The top 16 players at the end of the frenzy will go on to a three game, random draw bank of 2 Classics, 1 Modern game scored 4-2-1-0. Highest Seed will have choice of order for all 3 games, followed by second highest seed, and so on. The top 2 players from each group will go on until we reach the final 4, and those 4 players will get cash prizes!

Not in the top 16? You also make a (non-IFPA results-changing) playoff! These players will compete in a head to head bracket where the higher seed will pick a game not in use from the other finals or play order. The winner of that game will progress on in the bracket. The top 3 players in the Not-Top16 bracket will ALSO get a cash prize!

We expect that the Frenzy will take roughly 3.75 hours, the tournaments for the top 16 to take 3.5 hours, and the not top 16 to take about 90 minutes.
