Alright, I am back from Day 2 of the 2015 Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show and I am still in a bit of a daze. Mr. Do! broke today, which was a bummer, but it is amazing that so many games were kept running. It really is a testament to the talent of the amazing volunteers who make this show a reality year after year.
I met with Matt again today (and of course indulged in some oh his games) and Tom from I grew up Star Wars was also there. Several games were played multi-player, but I cannot say that I was a great competitor today. Even when losing, it was still a great time.
I am not sure if I can muster the energy to return for a third day. I have played A LOT of arcade games in the last two days, but I will see how I feel in the morning. Who knows, maybe they will fix that Mr. Do!
Here is a gallery of just some of the games I played. Mostly video games shots, I didn’t even make a dent in the pinball machines this year…
