NEWS: Best of ZapCon Returns!

ZapCon will be here this weekend! And so will the Best of ZapCon!
Once again, Firebird Pinball is proud to sponsor our annual competition, designed to honor those of you who bring the most awesome games down to share at the two-day pinball and arcade convention, April 21-22 at the Mesa Convention Center.
Drop by our booth to vote for your favorite games. A panel of expert judges will choose six more games to honor.
Winners will receive more of these cool plaques, made by our awesome friends at HJ Trophies & Awards, along with the envy of generally everyone else.

These are last year’s plaques, complete with working buttons and real balls!

Our expert judges this year:

Kathy Lovato, part of the brain trust behind StarFighters Arcade and a member of the Belles & Chimes pinball league.

Tim Stump, a longtime local collector who bought his first pin in 1982 and his first arcade game two years later.
