The Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show.
Your ticket buys you all the pinball you can play, on tens
(hundreds?) of pinball machines. So Andrew, Don, and I dropped by Sunday
morning to try it out.
My favorite machine gave six balls per game, but differed from
other machines in that it let the player decide when to put the balls into
play. The launcher wasn't strong enough to fire all at once, but with
some kinematics and several launches you could play all the balls at once.
And then the flippers weren't strong enough to fling several balls at once,
but it was easily the most fun machine for me. (Sadly, I didn't think to
get a photo of all the balls in play until a little later that day.)
We followed up pinball with a trip to an amazing-sounding crepe place,
but found it closed for renovations. So instead, Chinese food and boba
tea followed pinballs.
