World record high score attempts have become an important part of the NW Pinball & Arcade Show over the past few years. Every year multiple world records on pinball and arcade games are set at the show. If you are interested in a record attempt this year, Video Game Scoreboard will be arranging and overseeing the attempts, please email records@videogamescoreboard.com with the details so we can line up the game ahead of time for you.

Thanks to all the awesome Pacific Northwest game collectors for accommodating games requests, and good luck to everyone who will be going for record scores at the show.
