    Withdrawal has been hard after a very succesful Dutch Pinball Open 2017 in the Evoluon. But fortunately, a year goes by quickly and it's time to anticipate the next edition.

    DPO is the biggest pinball event in The Netherlands, if you are in any way involved in pinball it's a must-visit event. What to expect?

    About 150 games, all on free play
    Main tournament (open entry, anyone can join)
    Various 'side-games', such as the classics match
    Lectures
    Vendors
    The location is familiar to those who were at DPO 2013, 2014 or 2015. But after intensive reconstruction in the summer of 2018, the venue is bigger and more contemporary. The relaxed atmosphere is the same though!

    Of course, no DPO without tournaments. After the Danish victory in 2017 we are vey eager to get this trophy back in Dutch hands. You can try to stop us, you will not succeed .

    The next months the details will be set. So, follow https://www.nfvpinball.nl/dpo and our NFV-Facebookpage (https://www.facebook.com/nfvpinball) to stay up to date.

    Want to see how DPO EXPO 2014&2015 at the same venue looked like? See http://www.pinballnews.com/shows/dpo2014/index.html
    http://www.pinballnews.com/shows/dpo2015/index.html

    The succestory of DPO EXPO 2017 (held at a different venue with an unparalleled 474 pinballs) can be seen here.

    With only 2 months to go till DPO EXPO 2018 in Drunen we are proud to announce today our second special guest: Paul Faris.

    Paul started his pinball career at Bally where he worked also together with our other special guest Jim Patla on pinballs like Centaur and Space Invaders.

    Paul later worked with Data East and Sega. Known titles like Paragon, Golden eye and Twister were also designed by him.

    He was active as a pinball designer till mid nineties. But Paul is coming back as he joined recently the design team of Deeproot Pinball. Paul has great stories to tell in regard to his time with Bally, Data East and Sega and who knows? Perhaps he will even tell something on what he is currently working on with Deeproot.

    Good question. You will need an extra playfield cam with stand. If that’s there why not? Interesting stream this would be
