    One of the highlights of the Northwest show is no games will be pulled from the show floor early and all games will be on free play. This is a player's show, even if you come down Sunday afternoon, you will find all 400-500 games still there and still on freeplay. We have a huge volunteer tech team that work the entire show to assure as many games as possible stay up and running. Please report any game problems to the tech desk in the middle of the venue and we will get a ticket started on it, the repair techs should be easy to spot in bright orange Medic shirts. Most games are repaired within an hour or two of a problem report!

    Quoted from HighVoltage:

    Take note, earlier dates than usual... For me, I can celebrate my birthday there now!
    Looking forward to it - always a highlight of the summer!

    Awesome! Yeah, the show used to always be the first weekend in June, but we were unable to get the venue the last two years that weekend, so pushed it back a week. Which was unfortunate, because it ended up falling on the same weekend as Southern Fried and the Colorado show. This year none of us are on the second weekend in June and we have moved back permanently to doing the Northwest Show in the first weekend in June!

    Check out this fantastic poster for the 2019 Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show! Artwork is by Zombie Yeti, who's artwork can be found on pinball games like Ghostbusters, Iron Maiden, Primus and Deadpool.

    Upcoming local pinball and arcade game repair parties! As always, bring manuals, parts and be prepared to work on your own game, with help from a community of people. And if you give us a head's up ahead of time what games/parts you need help with, that really helps people know the right parts and testing equipment to bring, you don't want to hear "If I only knew you were bringing ___, I would have brought the exact part you need to get it running, but I left it at home."

    What: Repair Party at James' House
    When: Sunday, February 24th, 1pm-8pm
    Where: Milton, WA 98354 (PM me for address)
    Details: NWPAS is just around the corner. If you have games, boards, or parts you want to work on bring them out; there will be people on hand to help you get things working. I have some volt meters, soldering irons, some tools but no arcade game diagnostic tools or testers. I have work tables and chairs and will have snacks and nonalcoholic drinks. I have plenty of hand trucks. Will have a few pinball machines set up for play , mostly EMs and 80’s solid state pins.

    What: Repair Party at Tik Tok’s Workshop
    When: Saturday, March 23, 12pm-until everythings is fixed!
    Where: 1216 Sylvan Way, Bremerton, WA 98311
    Details: This is a 21+ location, so no kids. On the plus side I have bathrooms, food, and drinks on location. We will start at noon and continue until we have nothing else to work on.

    The Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show once again is happy to offer the opportunity to buy new Stern Pinball games at this year's show! Marco Specialties is working with Nitro Pinball to give you the opportunity to pre-purchase a discounted Stern Pinball machine that will be delivered directly to the show. Games will be played throughout the show at the Marco and Nitro booths, then can be taken home by the new owners. This is a popular deal available on any new Stern. If interested, feel free to PM me or contact Rachel Bess (rbess@marcospec.com) directly.

    Quoted from rkahr:

    Not only that, KAHR.US Circuits is coming this year! Thanks to a good amount of encouragement from highvoltage , 2019 NWPAS will be my first coast-to-coast trek for a show. I will have a single vendor space somewhere in vendor-land, so please try not to overlook this small Northern Virginia-based visitor. Of course I'll bring my complete product lines - the WPC Power Fix, Pinball 2000 H+V Video Sync Combiners, Skee Score sets, Williams sound board potentiometers, the Pinball Pyramid, and likely a few copies of a new product that I'm targeting for release on Kickstarter soon. Really excited for the opportunity to be a part of this year's fun.
    -visit http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or my replacement LED display boards for model H and model S Skee Ball

    Sweet! I'm already planning on buying some stuff from you! I think you will do quite well at our show, we had and attendance of about 4,000 people over 3 days last year and Seattle and Portland have the most pinball games per capita, vendors do quite well at this show. And I'll hype you coming on our Facebook invite, local collector groups and social media.
