If you happen to be in the Seattle Washington area between June 8th and the 10th a group of arcade and pinball collectors will be putting on a show that is open to the public. We should have over 300 pinball and arcade games on the floor all on free play and nice lineup of speakers from the industry. There will also be a raffle for a Centipede, a Galaga, new Wizard of OZ pin and a 2nd still to be determined pin. The admission prices are $20 for the day on Friday and Saturday and $15 on Sunday. A weekend pass is $40 if you preorder and $50 at the door. Please see the website for all the details, http://www.nwpinballshow.com.
This is my fourth year contributing to the show. It’s a lot of work but it’s also a lot of fun. I love see my games being played and enjoyed by all the people that show up. A few of the ones I’ll be bringing with me this year will be Sea Wolf, Night Driver, Drag Race and Stunt Cycle.
Hopefully some of you will be able to stop by and if you do be sure to track me down and say hi. If you ask for the vid guy with the handle blinddog they should be able to find me.
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 www.nwpinballshow.com and here’s the teaser video the show put out for this year.
Hope you can make it.
I always wondered what happened to the suit from the Greatest American Hero. Well, it looks like ClaymationWerewolf has tracked it down, probably as research for one of his Alt Pop History pieces.
