The Open IFPA World Championship & INDISC Tournaments

PLEASE NOTE: A valid INDISC/Festival of Fights pass must be purchased for admission to the convention center/tournament.

Quick Overview

With the exception of the Classics Target Match Play Championships, the It Never Drains in Southern California (INDISC) tournaments consist of open card-based qualifying and match play final rounds. 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 (3/2/1/0) (3/2/1 for 3 player groups) and added to a running total for the tournament. The first player to reach the target value of 30 points will be crowned INDISC Classics Target Match Play Champion for 2020 and end the tournament.

COVID Requirements

All INDISC and Festival of Fights attendees ages 12+ will be required to show proof of a full FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccination (with the final dose administered at least 14 days prior) to be admitted into the event hall.
