GLEN ELLYN, IL -- Big Buck Hunter, coin-op's popular bar videogame, will begin its qualifier tournament this month. The top 64 players, those who achieve top scores on each of the five animal adventures in the game, will compete in the international championships in Minneapolis.

Play Mechanix, the videogame developer that created the game with Raw Thrills, has posted a list 1,687 locations with online games that are participating in the tournament. Click here to view them. The qualifying matches begin Aug. 18 and end Sept. 28.

Players can track their progress on the qualifier leaderboard at bigbuckhd.com.

Top shooters will compete in the seventh annual Big Buck Hunter World Championship, which takes place Oct. 24-25 at The Pourhouse in downtown Minneapolis. The best virtual hunters from around the world will vie for a $15,000 grand prize. In all, $67,000 will be awarded to the finalists, including a $5,000 prize for the winner in the fourth annual Big Buck Ladies Tournament. If one lucky lady wins both tournaments, she will take home a record $20,000 prize. | SEE STORY

In addition to the Big Buck Hunter line, Play Mechanix has developed a variety of games with wide appeal, including Deal or No Deal. It merged with Raw Thrills, a longtime collaborator in game design, eight years ago.
