The Pinhead Cup is the premier open tournament in Manitoba. It predates the creation of the Manitoba Pinball League. Starting in 2011, the Pinhead Cup is the longest-running pinball tournament in Manitoba. The event has also been the longest to compete in, besides the provincial championship series.
For this Major tournament, the stakes have been raised. Entry fee is $10. There will be an exciting playoff format. 8 rounds of match play will be played. After the 8 rounds, the person in first will get a bye to the finals. Second and third will play a best of 3 games, where the winner will go on the final. The person who does not win the 2 vs 3 match will face off in the third-place match against the winner of the fourth vs fifth match which is also a best of three.
The champion will get their name on the Pinhead Cup, as well as a plaque. Second and third will each get a plaque for their placement.
