also we have updated the location and travel info page of the site with more information.

Including new airport route to a regional airport north of Seattle 15 minutes from our location:

"…There is also new cheap and direct flights to the Everett (PAE) airport

unfortunately it is very difficult logistically speaking for me to keep up with everyone social media decision. If you send me you email in a private msg i can try to email you when i post a new clue.

Amazing support from @GeekGamerTV this year! We are looking at supporting streaming from the 2 different rooms to stream qualifying and finals of all our 4 divisions!


We are looking at supporting streaming from the 2 different rooms to stream qualifying and finals of all our 4 divisions!

This is probably one of my biggest challenges ever when it comes to video because of the two detached locations for coverage (Open and Women’s/Classic/High Stakes) :slight_smile:

If it all works out (and if we have the bandwidth) - we could have 2 simultaneous streams!
1 Main Stream (that will have commentary, analysis and coverage of all machines in both rooms) and 1 Women’s/Classic Stream (no commentary, just gameplay).

The Main Stream will be on Twitch
The Classic Stream will be TBD*

*Not sure where I want to broadcast the second stream yet…:slight_smile:

Just trying to give these top tournaments the coverage they deserve with high quality (1080p60), good sound, graphics, commentary, interviews and more! (by the way if you want to help, please let me know!)

I’m hoping that after this event, I can expand to do more events in the PNW! I really truly feel that pinball can be the next “eSport” or cool competitive thing to watch online. I mean hell, if you can watch corn-hole, darts and bowling on TV, why not competitive pinball?


Thanks Chase. Love what you did with this event last year and can’t wait to see how it turns out this time.

Hi all, we are nearly a week before the start of our event, there is still plenty to do.

In effort to be more efficient at the event, we have opened pre-registration where players can sign up in advance. That will help speed up registration at the desk.

Please visit the link below and check that you receive the confirmation email.

The email will also include event related information and schedule.

You will still need to activate your account at the event when you arrive before being able to use but it would be greatly appreciated if you could take the time to pre-registered to expedite the process.

Thank you!


Will game setup options be documented somewhere (either online or on signage)? For example, it would be useful to know whether Flash Gordon bonus multipliers carry over from ball to ball.

I know you’ll make a lot of game setup decisions right before the tournament, but are there any setup decisions you can share already? For example, will there be custom ROMs on Radical! or Star Trek (Bally)?


The final game adjustments will be posted on the machine. Though since it is an unlimited format there is plenty of possibility to observe game settings.

Happy to answer some questions before but we reserve the right to change any settings at any time. Both Radical and Star Trek Bally will have custom ROM. ST bonus collect is resetting bonus.

Anyone free TOMORROW to help me setup stream equipment at the NW Pinball Championships?

Really could use the help! So much to setup!

Thursday starting at 10am - Lynnwood Bowl and Skate!

(and you can earn free entries into the tournament!)

Please let me know!

Good Morning :sun_with_face:!

Broadcast update from the #NWPC. Last night - I ran into some major computer issues with the main broadcast machine. Working on making repairs, but the start time might be delayed.

Will keep you posted. Still shooting for 2pm PT but it might be pushed back.
