If you’ve never been to a pinball and arcade convention, here is your chance. Tickets went on sale last night for the 2014 Northwest Pinball show. The show is taking place on June 6 – 8th and tickets are only $65 for the entire weekend.
The show’s hours will be Noon – 11:30pm on Friday June 6th, 10am – 11:30pm on Saturday the 7th and 9am – 3pm on June 8th. That’s 32 hours to squeeze in over 400 games. If you spend more than 20 minutes on any one machine, you’ll miss out on the other. I recommend comfortable shows and a lot of coffee.
Last year’s show attracted over 3,000 guest and with even more space to work with, I would expect to see a higher turnout this year. The details on this year’s tournament haven’t been announced just yet, so pinheads will have to hold off on zoning in their zen until they can figure out which games they need to master over the next few months. It should be interesting to see what game they go with.
