BAMPAM 2018 includes:
- Pinball Wizard Contest from 10AM to 1PM – Play against fellow pinball wizards for high scores, bragging rights, prizes and trophies in this first of it’s kind competition at The Starcade. PLEASE NOTE: We are looking for serious players who want to compete! Entry to the contest is $25. Official rules to follow. The contest will be managed by tournament software and official score keepers. This is a Best Game format that will determine the Top 8 Players who will compete for the title of BAMPAM PINBALL WIZARD 2018.
Best Game Format OVERVIEW: There are currently 22 pinball games, called ARENAS, in the contest. The total number of arenas used for the contest will be determined by the number of players. The more challengers, the more arenas in play. Each challenger will play each arena one or more times and their best game is ranked against the best game of all opponents. The total number of challengers will determine how many times a player can play an arena and how many of those results counts towards the player’s point total.
