Get Ready for the Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show

It looks like we have a few arcade and pinball fans here so I wanted to let you know that on June 3rd – 5th the local pinball and arcade collectors are putting on the Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show in Seattle Washington and if any of you are in the area I hope you will be able to join us.

The show has been held annually for the last four years and has grown quite a bit since 2008. We have more space this year than the previous years and we are shooting for 350 pins and vids out on the floor all set on free play. Admission is $20 to get in for the day and the weekend pass are $50 at the door ($40 earlybird from the website). We also have been very fortunate to get some great people from the industry to give seminars and vendors if you are looking for parts for your games.

This is my third year contributing my time and games to the show and I really have a lot of fun being a part of it. It’s a lot of work getting them ready, I’m bringing 18 this year, but seeing people playing and enjoying them is really cool and makes it worth it. I’ll be there a good portion of all three days so if you are able to make it to the show stop by and say hi. Anyone in the arcade repair area should know me by my handle blinddog or my actual name Matt Griffin.

For all the details please visit the website and here’s the teaser video the show put out for this year.

Hope you can make it.


I'm a kid of the 70's and 80's. Grew up on Saturday morning cartoons, Atari and Music Videos. My current hobby is repairing arcade games, mostly from the 70's and trying to find space to put them.

    @Blinddog –

    First – Kudos to your video guy, that was very well produced; high quality stuff.

    Second – Hooray for people like you risking their meticulously cared-for machines out there with the general public.

    Third – I will make every attempt to be there. It’s about 50-50 right now, but if I had to, I would drive up for the day.

    I agree, Mike did a great job on the video and it has definitely helped sell the show. I’m glad he is on the team.

    Like I said its great to see so many people enjoy playing the games and also introducing them to the younger kids that didn’t get to play them in the arcade. Everyone seems pretty respective and grateful for the games that we bring so it is a good experience.

    Hope you can make it. I’ll treat you to a game of Sea Wolf if you do.
