Hey hey, next weekend is the second annual Showdown at Slabtown!! It’s
a three day tournament, with big cash payouts to those who qualify for
the final day’s matches.

This style of tournament, though different from Portland’s weekly
tournaments and from the Ground Kontrol Pinbrawl, has a strong focus
on an individual’s skill and strategy. While you are trying to beat
other people’s scores, you’re also allowed the time and space to do
your best without having to worry about being eliminated after just a
couple bad games. Two days of casual flow qualifying on Friday and
Saturday! Hang out, watch the players, watch your placement go up and
down, and have fun!

But then on Sunday, things change! Once it’s down to 16, you’ll be
matched up against the other players, playing three 4-player games,
and then advancing (or not) from there.

A lot of people will be entering this tournament. It’s a good way to
check out the scene, get sorta serious about your game, TRY HARD, and
maybe win some money!
