Todays event: Tacoma Showdown
Format: 3-Strike Knockout
IFPA points: yes
Please note that listed time is the START TIME. Registration closes approximately 10 minutes before listed time; earlier if it fills up.
Tonight: This will be the same knockout format as used in many of the local weekly and monthly tournaments, with one key exception. Once all players remaining have won packages, the tournament ends. Final placement is based on number of strikes each player has, with ties for equal strikes.
If there is more than one player with least number of strikes, then a ONE GAME final playoff game is made amongst those players, with final results of that game determining final position in the tournament.
If there is a tie for who wins a package and who doesn’t after multiple players get knocked out, it will be a ONE GAME tie breaker amongst those players.
