Being the first of its kind in Massachuetts, the Pintastic Pinball and Game Room Expo has 30,000 square feet of free play pinball and family friendly attractions. Taking place from June 28 to July 1, over 200 machines will be set to free play. The arcade cabinets are set to vary each year thanks to the hobbyists and vendors who volunteer their machines for the show.
The headlining tournamnet, the Silverball Rumble is an IFPA endorsed event with unlimited PAPA -style qualifying. For $10 per entry, the top 24 players will enter an elimination round for the chance to win cash prizes and trophies. A side tournament for charity will also take place in the same area, with the winner getting half the accumulated entry fees. The other half of the entry fees will go to the Andrea Ritz Clinics in Paraguay. This charity dedicates funds for the building supply, staffing and maintaining of rural health clinics. A third tournament; the Pingolf tournament is more casual, with a small entry fee to create a prize pool. The event also includes a Saturday game auction and seminar presentations.
The organisers of the event are hosting a Friday night party for staff, special guests and people who brought games to socialise. For more information, please visit Pinball News.
