Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show

He may not be a pinball wizard or be deaf, dumb, and blind, but true to The Who, Steve Wiebe sure does have a supple wrist. Star of The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, in which he displayed record-smashing Donkey Kong skills, Redmond gamer Wiebe will be on hand for the Northwest Pinball and Gameroom Show (through Sunday, June 8). Ballers can button-mash alongside the now-famous schoolteacher on more than 100 arcade and pinball games like kids let loose at Chuck E. Cheese’s with unlimited tokens. (Leave your quarters at home; game play is included in admission cost.) Self-proclaimed wizards can nudge it out for cash prizes in either the novice or open tournament. No slam-tilts allowed. Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St., 360-929-1198, www.nwpinballshow.com. $7–$15 (daily), $25 (weekend pass). 4 p.m.–midnight. JOSHUA LYNCH

Fri., June 6, 4 p.m., 2008
