These are the basic rules of the tournament.

Just a couple of notes.

I gave these to Marcel to post to the APE website and Facebook.  Also, because of the new IFPA point rules started in 2015 each tournament is judged on its own merit.  Previously a there was a Main Tournament worth 25 points and the "side" tournament was worth 12.5 points.  In this case both of the tournaments at APE should carry very similar points, so a player who places well in both tournaments will make a nice weekend worth of points!  So if you were thinking about concentrating on the Main and not the Classics, you might want to think again.

I really wanted to get a chance to post the tournament games.  Dan and I both have been working on machines to get them right and there have been last minute swap outs.

I already hinted that Atlantis (EM) will be there.  That game is running nicely and will be in the lineup.  I also have my BSD tuned up and playing wicked.  No need to bastardize that game, it still has ball saver on too.  It's running the tournament software that makes Mystery worth 500,000 each time instead of random.  Target Alpha and Quick Draw will be in Classics or Main.  There will be a couple other familiar Williams 90s machines and a newer Stern too.
