New format for this year!
Unlimited qualifying on “classics” games only. The Museum of Pinball represents a unique opportunity for a tournament consisting of some of the greatest pinball machines ever made and games that are often not seen out on location or in tournaments. Come help us celebrate classic pinball and the skill in playing of some of the greatest pins history has to offer.
Also, for the first time at ArcadeExpo, we will have IE Pinball streaming the tournament live on Twitch!
You will need a ticket for ArcadeExpo to participate in the tournament! Registration will take place at the tournament area on the morning of the event. Once registered, players may start playing immediately.
