If you’re in or around the Seattle/Tacoma area this weekend, you might want to check out the Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show.

The event is happening this Friday, June 3 – Sunday, June 5.

If you’re interested in how-to, there are lots of speakers presenting on the hardware side. There’s also a tournament to show off your skills, tabletop games, loads of vendors, special guests Nolan Bushnell and David Thiel, and OF COURSE, tons and tons of pinball machines and arcade games to play — Over 400, to be semi-exact!

Tickets are sold out online, but they’re still available at the door. For more information, visit the Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show website.

And hey, if you see me on the floor, come over and say hey!
