A few friends and I did a casual tournament on MatchPlay while at Pinburgh this year. We did it so that Player 1 got to pick the game. At first, I said each round had to be a specific type of machine (EM, SS, DMD), but after a few rounds someone suggested that it should be a theme.
We did a few rounds, like “Animals”, “Sports”, “Space”, etc.
In a casual event, and at show which has a large variety of machines, we found this to be a lot of fun.
Some others I’ve thought of after a quick brainstorm:
Based on a Movie
With that many machines at your disposal, what other “themes” could be fun?
