Midwest Gaming Classic weekend, play pinball, arcade games & more!

It's that time of year again, The Midwest Gaming Classic comes to Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc this Saturday, March 21st, 10am to 8pm, and Sunday, March 22nd, 10am to 5pm. This year attendees have a chance to win a PLAYSTATION 3 or tickets to Six Flags Great America. Check out Midwest's website for details on the Gaming Classic weekend.

Pay one admission price and play all day: $15 on Saturday, $10 on Sunday, kids under 12 with a paying adult are FREE.

There are special events, tournaments, vendors, seminars & speakers. Some of the seminars are geared to helping the hobbyist restore and learn about caring for their video and pinball machines.

Area vendors, collectors and hobbyists bring their games to the show for play and for sale. Some of them are quite old and unusual--fun to just look at.

This year my son is bringing his Simpsons Bowling video game, which I heard will be part of the tournament.

Maybe not as glamorous as when gaming champ Billy Mitchel (pictured right)

set the world record on my son's Donkey Kong machine, (pictured left) but fun, none the less.

There is also a Computing Museum section, where you can see and PLAY old computer game systems. Everything from A to Z: Apple II, Atari, Commodore, Sega, Tandy, to Zodiac/2!

So if you are looking for something fun this weekend, go out and play at the Midwest Gaming Classic.
