    Die Hard Pinball League presents the third annual YEGPIN – 2018 Edmonton Pinball and Arcade Expo which will be held the weekend of May 4th-6th, 2018. The show is centrally located at the Edmonton Aviation Museum in Edmonton at 11410 Kingsway NW. This is an ALL AGES event!

    Are you a pinball buff, a collector or just have fun playing some pinball? Want to relive your younger days with some of the classic arcade games from your childhood, or introduce your family to the world of pinball and classic arcade games? Are you interested in seeing some of the latest game technology and what the resurgence in pinball and arcade is all about? Or maybe you're looking to buy a pin or arcade game for your home or office? If yes is the answer to any of these questions then come join us at YEGPIN!!!!!!

    We endeavor to fill the historic Alberta Aviation Museum hangar with more than 100 pinball machines and 50 classic video games, and other game room goodies set up on free play for everyone to enjoy the entire weekend. YEGPIN will strive to showcase the best pinball and arcade collections in the city and be able to provide you with three fun-filled days of playing pinball machines and arcade games.

    The event will also be hosting two IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association) backed pinball tournaments which you will receive WPPR (World Pinball Player Rankings). This will be a great, friendly competition that is open to novice and advanced players alike. We offer trophies and cash prizes to the winners in novice and A divisions.

    As if that weren’t enough, we will have a space for a designated licensed area, and our games rooms will be open late on Friday and Saturday. For our guests who are volunteers, those that contribute game(s), or advance purchase a VIP all access weekend pass will be invited to a special VIP party where music will be played and all free play machines can be played well past midnight on Friday night.

    New this year will be a Saturday night YEGPIN After Dark party, this will be a separate ticketed event. This will transform our facility into a retro style arcade for the night, blaring out 80's and 90's tunes. Feel free to bring out your best 80's or 90's theme costume for a fun filled night.

    Ticket pre-sales will start at 10:00AM on December 17, 2017 for VIP and Weekend Passes. VIP Passes are limited to 125 tickets and give you access to all of the activities for the entire weekend. All ticket information will be on our website http://www.yegpin.com.

    Much more information to be leaked as we get closer to the website launch date.

    Feel free to visit our facebook page:

    You guys are so funny like Mike and Tim putting tentitive on the Facebook event page to give me heartattacks...

    Quoted from Stretch7:

    #6 3 months ago

    Less than 29 days till our website is live. If you are a tournament player or want to be at the VIP party on Friday I would strongly suggest purchasing your passes as soon as they go on sale. The AB and SK pinball leagues have grown over the past year and I think these tickets are going to sellout pretty quickly again this year. I can’t tell you the number of people that came up to us last year asking if they could purchase VIP tickets for event and we had to say no. We have increased them to 125 this year but when they are gone they are gone!!!

    What’s the procedure for securing tournament entries for those of us bringing games and qualifying for the free VIP pass?

    #8 3 months ago

    Good question, tournament entries do not come with machine donations, you receive a free VIP pass but do not get all the VIP pass rewards, you get the donor rewards, which includes a chance to win your very own pinball machine and four other prizes of at least $250 value.

    You will be able to purchase tournament entries via the tournament desk.

    WCPC

    1 entry - $4
    3 entries - $10
    7 entries - $20

    Classics

    1 entry - $3
    4 entries - $11
    8 entries - $20

    Not much buzz yet about YEGPIN - 2018 Edmonton Pinball and Arcade Expo on May 4-6, 2018 so lets create some buzz. Three IFPA sanctioned tournaments will be held at YEGPIN 2018.

    - Three divisions (Main, Novice and Women's)

    2. 2018 DHPL Classics Tournament

    3. NEW!!!! Knockout Cancer Pinball Tournament - Friday Night

    Over $10,000 in cash and prizes, many trophies and plaques awarded to the winners, three chances at IFPA points, wowza...

    Remember tickets go on sale at http://www.yegpin.com on December 17, 2017 at 10:00AM, only 125 VIP tickets will be sold, so make sure you don't miss out.

    All I can say is are you ready!!!! Website will go live and tickets will go on sale at 10:00am MST sharp on Sunday. VIP and Weekend Passes will be on sale. All daily passes for the event will need to be purchased at the door. Due to popular demand and many people coming up to me and complaining they were not able to attend the Nitro Pinball - Friday Night VIP Party we have increase this number to 125 tickets this year. That means a bigger tournament, more food, and one kickass party so don't hesitiate to purchase your pass ASAP. Please note each passholder will need to be registered on the site. The first person to register will get their choice between the offical show shirt or the YEGPIN retro shirt. Yes, we will have two shirt designs this year, and will add the shirt designs to the website when finalized.

    #19 70 days ago

    I to will be there and I know a lot of people from saskatoon that are sapp members that will be there as well. But aren't very active on pinside. You guys did a great job last year no need to worry I'm sure it will be twice as busy as last year.

    Way to break the site Canada Got an email from our web host sharing that you crashed the server. The overwhelming support is appreciated! Site is back and we are pausing on content updates until traffic slows. Be sure to look tomorrow as we have lots of pictures from 2016/17 that we are digging up from the archives.

    #30 68 days ago

    I just filled out the information needed for donating a pinball for the weekend. It's a Street Fighter II.....maybe that's what crashed the site?

    Thanks for the donation! A polarizing pin, but I love the Gottlieb SFII personally, happy to see it at the show. And you are all but guaranteed a multi-ball so what's not to love.

    Thanks @thehuemanatee , @bcrage88 will be in touch for your FREE all access VIP weekend admission to YEGPIN! Your name also goes into the donor prize draw AND eligible for the Best In Show award.

    #33 68 days ago

    Got my VIP pass, a really good value. Just getting into the building an hour early each day makes it totally worth it for me.

    I will be heading straight for the Nitro Booth each morning!

    FYI, if someone is awesome enough to bring Total Nuclear Annihilation (PLEASE!), I will then be crazy-gluing myself to that machine.

    Thanks! Your 100% right, when you factor in the tournament tickets + hassle free pre-register + entry into the Friday night YEGPIN Nitro Pinball - VIP Pinball Party, VIP pass is a no-brainer. @bcrage88 worked really hard on this. Thanks!

    Total Nuclear Annihilation is confirmed for the event at this time, but this is subject change. We have word that there might even be two of this title at the event. You think that's good news check out the list of Arcade Machines! http://www.yegpin.com/arcade-machines/

    #35 68 days ago

    Can't wait for YEGPIN I've been wanting to try TNA for a while now

    #36 68 days ago

    Cool, just checked out the list of arcade games. It will be nice to play Arkanoid, APB and Toobin' again!
    Edit: Just noticed the MS-Pacman tournament! Yes! Hopefully its running the original ROMs, I might actually have a chance!

    #37 67 days ago

    I got my VIP pass and cannot wait! Last year was unreal I'm sure it's only going to be better this year.

    #38 67 days ago

    Lets hope so cause if there's only one it will probably be a tournament game

    Quoted from yegpin:
