Pachinko Fever

05/19/17; 10:00 AM – 11:00 PM

DFW AB; Hyatt Regency O’Hare

Back in 2009, we bought our first pachinko machine for engaging fans at our convention table. The rest is history, as we now own 19 machines, in various stages of restoration. Pachinko is Japanese pinball, Japan’s favorite pastime. It’s been one of their most popular leisure activities for nearly a hundred years. We set up an interactive parlor that works just like it does in Japan (minus the Yakuza, of course), where you buy balls to play with, and redeem your winnings for prizes much like an American arcade. Our machines represent the history and evolution of pachinko over the last 60 years with machines dating from 1951 up to 2010, so we have a machine for everyone! Come try your hand at some great prizes and experience this really fun part of Japanese culture first hand with Pachinko Fever!
