The players will distributed among the groups according to their skill level of the IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association). Players that are not listed in the IFPA are assigned randomly.
Within each main group (blue, yellow, red, green) groups of 4 players will be drawn per round. These four players contest two matches, each on a different pinball machine per round. There are 5 rounds to be played. I.e. each tournament player disputed in the main round 10 games. In the matches only the rank is crucial. I.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place in each match, the score earned is irrelevant.
After completion of the main round the best eight players of each group (blue, yellow, red, green) will enter the end round. The end round is played in a simple ko-system, two players on one pinball machine. A match is played best of three sets.
