Like to play pinball and arcade games? How about vintage computer games? Well, the Midwest Gaming Classic it just the place for you.

Pay your admission and play all day for free. Private collectors and those in the biz bring their own machines for you to play; some games are for sale. There are also special events, tournaments, and speakers plus you can shop the vendors.
Plus, this year you have a chance to win a Nintendo Wii or family pack of Six Flags tickets.
My guys go every year and have a great time. One year my son won a vintage AJAX arcade game.
Another time, Billy Mitchell (pictured above) played the Donkey Kong game my son brought.
(Too bad we did not have a Sharpie handy for Billy to autograph that game!)
