Is there a way to get any part of the information in the tournament screen to blink or flash?

You can always use the old <marquee> tag.  You can also make the whole screen flash when an event is triggered.  It's one of the event Actions.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand, I've used the marquee for scrolling but could you please give me an example perhaps of how to make the 'Buy-In' Flash or something similar in context. Thanks.

In the Cell Properties, Property Set, you need 3 (bottom - Default ) (middle - Even Rounds ) (top - Blink)
Set your Content to all 3
In the Property Set of the Blink, click, Conditions click, Type, Condition use.    time % 2 = 0     
you may have to set your fonts to transparent in the Blink

Whoops, I think I meant the <blink> HTML tag.  It's deprecated but still works.

If you want a cell to flash, you could create a new Property Set with, say, inverse coloring.  Then edit the Conditions and set them to something like:

time % 4 < 2

Move the new Property Set to the top of the list.  This will make it use the Default property set for 2 seconds, then switch to the inverse color property set for 2 seconds, etc.  Of course, if there are other property sets, such as one for Even Rounds, Breaks, etc, it gets more complicated.
