DENVER — Hundreds of pinball, retro console and classic arcade video games are coming to Colorado for the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown and Gameroom Expo.

Attendees can play for fun or compete in pinball and arcade tournaments for all ages and skill levels. Participants can win trophies, cash and prizes.

Two world tournament pinball champions will also compete: Escher Lefkoff, winner of the 2017 PAPA World Championship, which makes him the best player in the world at age 13; and Helena Walter Higgins, the International Flipper Pinball Association 2017 women’s world pinball champion.

Other video game and pinball personalities will attend, including Warren Davis, who is the designer of the iconic game Q*Bert.
