If you have the skills, you can compete in the official tournaments for cash prizes up to $1,000. More casual fans can play a few free, friendly games on one of more than a hundred pinball machines, from Depression-era relics to the latest and greatest in the pinball world. And in case you get tired of smacking balls around, the expo will also feature vintage arcade and console games, tabletop gaming, guest speakers and more.
The fun starts at 11 a.m. today and runs through Sunday evening at the Sheraton DTC, 7007 South Clinton Street in Greenwood Village. Weekend passes are $65 and day passes are $25, with $15 tickets for kids ages seven to twelve (those six and under get in free). For more info, visit www.pinballshowdown.com.
