Day 2 of the 2015 Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show

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…

    Sorry to hear your favorite machine was on the fritz.
    So many other second-bests to choose from, though.

    Again, the many marquees light up my gamer life-memories.
    Wish I could set some of those up as a table lamp.
    And maybe add some attract mode sfx to the switch.
    Okay, maybe replace the switch with a 1Up button.
    eh…joystick lamp base?
    Alright, what it’d really need is a small display and ROM setup.
    Maybe a bigger lamp then.
    Add large boards on either sides, for original art, of course.
    What theh heck, just go full-CRT on the monitor.
    That lamp is gonna fall to the side, let’s nail it all together with a backboard.

    yeah, just a simple lamp/cabinet

    These arcade pics are inspiring.

    One last thing – I thought the Tattoo Mystique pinball was a Zoltar Speaks machine.
    Woulda had to seek that one out.
    Though, “I wish I was small, again” could severely backfire.

      You design the best lamps AAS.

      That Tattoo Pinball was very interesting. Slow play and simple playfield, but a nice change of pace from some of the newer high octane pins.
