Slideshow: The Scene At The Rocky Mtn. Pinball Showdown
Denver has been doing its best to keep arcade classics alive. Fans, collectors, and pinball wizards gathered at the Rocky Mtn. Pinball Showdown, all minus one thing. No quarters necessary.
In its tenth year, the Rocky Mtn. Pinball Showdown is a dream for classic game players and aficionados. The showdown not only brings together vendors and their machines, it also crowdsources many of the games from the very appreciative audience they attract.
That's why it's a reserved date on many a pinball player's calendar, and another reason Denver has its nerd cred.

- King of Diamonds (1967)
