The Open IFPA World Championship & INDISC Tournaments
PLEASE NOTE: A valid INDISC pass must be purchased for admission to the convention center/tournament.
INDISC 2023 Tournaments Quick Overview
With the exception of the Classics Target Match Play Championships and High Stakes, the It Never Drains in Southern California (INDISC) tournaments consist of open card-based qualifying and match play final rounds and are open to all players attending the event. During open qualifying, each player may purchase as many cards as they like to attempt to qualify for the final rounds. A point system is used to rank each player’s score on each machine. Those who possess the highest ranking cards at the end of qualifying will participate in the match play final rounds.
In the final rounds, qualifying players play against each other in multiplayer games. A [different] point system is used to determine who advances to the next round and, ultimately, who wins the division.
The Classics Target Match Play Championships is a separate, single day event limited to 120 players. Players will be placed into four-player groups (occasionally three-player) to compete on an individual, randomly selected machine. Points will be awarded based upon performance on that machine (7/5/3/1) (7/4/1 for 3 player groups) and added to a running total for the tournament. The first player to reach the target value of 70 points will be crowned INDISC Classics Target Match Play Champion for 2023 and end the tournament.
