Default MIDWEST GAMING CLASSIC 2018

04-14-2018 08:00 AM
This weekend is the Midwest Gaming Classic show in downtown Milwaukee, in its new home at the Wisconsin Center at 400 W.Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee.

The Wisconsin CenterThe show is held on Saturday April 14th and Sunday April 15th, but there was a pre-show ticket available for Friday night, April 13th.

Almost every new pinball machine title is at the show, plus rows of older pins.

It was easy to play all the new and older pins. I was told that on Saturday the place gets very crowded with gamers.
