It’s well past us but there was the Texas Pinball Festival last month and now we have plenty of video-graphic evidence of what was there. We have covered this festival before which takes place annually in March, but I have to admit that I forgot about the most recent one until a tweet shared a Slashdot story about it(thanks to @MiGaOh for the tip). With 400+ games that leaves plenty to talk about. I checked Youtube and sure enough there are plenty of videos about the event, here are a couple of extensive ones.
Further North in Michigan and a little closer to the present time was the Michigan Pinball Expo 2013. It had fewer games than the Texas Festival but still plenty to keep fans busy and entertained.
