$6 BYP entry for -beginners, -female foosers, -those with beginner partners, (foos guru discount) (Beginner status at TD discretion), $5 entry for the DYP for those that go 0-2 in the bring.

-BYP matches will be given priority when the events are running concurrently - Singles will run no-conflict with the BYP at the time of sign-ups. - As Jimmy's closes at 1 am, I want to ensure we finish by 1 am, so shortened formats/race to 8 in the loser's bracket could occur in the draw as needed based on turnout and timing.

$1 of each entry fee goes to new balls/parts.

The Follow-up Formats:

No-Conflict Singles: This event is meant for those eliminated early from the bring or as a warm-up event for late arrivals for the dyp. It will run double elim (race to 7 in the loser's) if 8 players or less, otherwise single elim. MN Shuffle DYP This is a form of 'every player for themselves' hyper-draw invented by Tony Mason. The draw works as follows: The first round of the bracket is drawn up exactly like a standard DYP. As teams advance (in either side of the bracket), they have a coin toss to determine the new teams between the four players meeting at that point in the bracket. For example, if a team comprised of A and B wins its first match and meets up with C and D in the next round of the bracket, those four players then toss coins in a four-player mini-draw to determine the new teams for that match in the bracket. (You have a 1 in 3 chance of ending up with your most recent partner). The finals gives an advantage to king-seat only if the two players coming from the winner's bracket draw each other again in the coin toss (though there'd be another shuffle if it goes to a 2nd set, when all bets are off!).

(Txt by 7:30 to get entered in the draw if running late). Formats: Countdown DYP: My name for a basic timed foosball format. Matches will be 2/3 with a 5 minute game clock (standard shot clocks on the rods). The game-clock stops between points, timeouts, when the ball is unreachable (including leaving the the table), or a rule-violation is called. Time warnings will be given at final minute, and ten seconds. Players are always welcome to inquire of the gameclock during play stoppage. If tied when time expires: There is a stoppage of play upon the buzzer, the ball is put back in play on the rod on which it ended as time expired. - In the first two games: play out that last ball sudden-death with no game-clock. - In the third and deciding game: a 2:00 minute overtime begins. If tied after overtime, then the final ball is played out as in the early games. Time-keepers: All players that enter in the timed events must be willing to be a time-keeper for at least one match in that event (not too burdensome in the age of smartphones). Minute-to-Win-It Singles: As its name implies, this is a timed format played best 2-3 where each game has a 1 minute game clock. The game clock is stopped between points, when the ball is unreachable or goes out of play, or if there's an external distraction or rule violation. No other time-outs. The player with the most points at the end of the minute wins the game. Ties as time expires result in a sudden death ball (reserved after the buzzer). The shot clock is limited to five seconds on each rod, so it's fast-paced and a lot of fun! All players who sign up must be willing to act as timers as needed for at least one other match.
