Despite what anyone might say about the current state of pinball, there are still many fans out there that love the game enough to get together and hold some excellent competitions. One such competition just saw it’s 12th installment, the Pinball World Championships in Carnegie, PA. Over 400 games were brought together under one 30,000 sq. ft. roof over four days for the playing enjoyment of more than 2000 people. With numbers like that, you can’t argue against it and on top of that, it looks like it was a lot of fun. One website, Crispy Gamer has a rundown of the competition, replete with photos like the one above.

UPDATE: I forgot that there was a topic on this very subject on our forums. Igo points out that Nick from PressStartComic made a video of the event.
