Tonight at 7:00 p.m. is the traditional post-season Zen Tourney. This is a split flipper tournament in which each partner may only touch one of the flipper buttons. The tournament is usually handicapped by pairing the top finishing player with the bottom, the second with the second-to-last, and so on. Because it’s impossible to know exactly who will show up, the teams are anyone’s guess until the tournament starts. Unless Matt P. makes any rules changes this time around, it will be double elimination, best two of three, with every team playing the same three games.
The Zen Tourney is just for fun and has no effect on the season’s rankings. No one takes it too seriously; it’s really just a chance to unwind at the end of the season, drink some beer, and enjoy each others’ company. I always have a great time. I hope to see everyone there!
