8-strike group knockout. Fair strikes scoring, swiss pairing. Rounds alternate between classic and modern machines.
Each round, you'll be placed in a four or three player group. Groups play a single multi-player game on an assigned machine. For four-player groups, the player with the lowest score gets 2 strikes, while those who finished second and third get 1 strike each. In three-player groups, last place gets 2 strikes and second place gets 1 strike. After the first round, you'll be paired with players who have a similar number of strikes as you.
Once you have 8 strikes, you're out. Last player standing is the winnner!
$5 entry plus coin drop.
