Foo Fighters LAUNCH PARTY!


I/O Arcade Bar

924 Williamson St

Madison, WI 53703

When: Saturday, May 6 (12-4pm) qualifying with playoffs immediately following. 


NOTE: This is preliminary at this time and the details WILL change but for the time being the format is as follows

Qualify: Every player can play as often as time allows at the Launch party.  In order to play, a participant must place their name on the list and are asked to cue and be ready to play when it is their turn.  Your score is recorded after playing by another participant and verified by you.  If all participants in attendance/in cue at any given time have already played once, then they are allowed to play additional qualifying attempts  (Players responsibility to Void/cross out any score that is lower; players should place name on 2nd attempts list in order to re-cue and please only place name on 2nd attempts after you complete your current attempt is complete).  Priority of play is given to any players that have not yet played their 1st attempt, so they will be bumped to the front of the line for all players waiting to play their 2nd+ attempts.  Highest score for each player at the end of qualifying is used to determine the final 1-8 Seeds, or your final position.

Playoff format:

Qualifiers 1-3-5-7 and 2-4-6-8 will play PAPA style 4-player games / match play across 2 pre-selected games with Launch game as 1 of the games. 4, 2, 1, 0 scoring based on finishing position for each game and combined total used to determine whom advances.  Player position on all games for playoff round selected with priority given to higher seed to lower seed.  Play position will be maintained for the entire playoff match. When games are open and available for play, each playoff group is required to efficiently play through all games (i.e. multiple games being played simultaneously). Top 2 players from each group advance to finals round.  If there is a tie after all games, the player with the higher score on the Launch game in that playoff round advances.

Finals round: The remaining 4 players will play one 4-player game on Foo Fighters as the final game for final position.


1st place will receive a Grand Champion plaque, with runner up receiving a Translite thanks to Stern Pinball.  Additional prizes provided by Madison Pinball
