The Pittsburgh Gaming Expo is set to take place this weekend at the Monroeville Convention Center, offering a vibrant celebration of gaming culture. From arcade games and pinball to video games and live music, this event has something for everyone.
One of the highlights of the expo is the chance to explore the world of board games. According to showrunner Brian Wissner, there is a free board game area featuring 400 to 600 unique titles. Attendees can check out a board game just like borrowing a book from the library, sit down at one of the free tables, and enjoy playing a game they may have never experienced before.
For those who have a soft spot for nostalgia, the expo offers a range of vintage video games that will transport them back to their childhood. Colt Dalmaso, another showrunner, mentions that attendees can sit and play classic PC games like The Oregon Trail or Myst – perfect for those who grew up during the Windows 95 era.
While pinball enthusiasts will have a field day with multiple options to choose from, the expo is not limited to any specific type of game. It attracts industry guests from various gaming fields, including tabletop gaming like Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, as well as video game developers and arcade and pinball enthusiasts. This diverse range of guests ensures there is something for every kind of gamer.
Tickets for the event are still available, and with the purchase of an adult ticket, two children under the age of 12 can enter for free. Once inside, children can enjoy playing arcade and pinball games at no additional charge.
The Pittsburgh Gaming Expo promises to be an exciting weekend for gamers of all ages. Whether you're looking to rediscover old favorites, try your hand at new board games, or immerse yourself in the world of arcade and pinball, this event is not to be missed.
