General Show Information / Re: The Show Must Go On Coronavirus or Not!

Right now the team is evaluating options and has not made a definitive call as to what we'll be able to do this year. There are a few ideas being discussed, but we're looking to official sources for the best information about public gatherings and the risks therein. We want to have fun; we need to be safe. We'll see what we can make happen!

Stand by, it's still being actively discussed. The official statement is on our home page.

All we know is that California's official "Shelter in Place" date has been extended to May 1st, 2020. The event itself is basically less than 3 months away by the time that shelter in place is over. I do expect that heightened safety measures will gradually relax as the case curve flattens.

Hope the organizers behind this would respond for any updates and let them know soon whether to cancel this year or put restricted measures.

I also discovered that Exa Arcadia has cancelled their physical presence out of safety:

We can only hope and pray that California keeps up as leader of "Shelter in Place" as other states have lagged behind on safety measures.

So, now that stinkin' Santa Clara county has banned gatherings of 1,000 or more because of the coronavirus, are you going to continue planning in the hopes things will be resolved by showtime?  Or just maybe sell "only" 1,000 tickets?

General Show Information / California Extreme 2020!

We are very pleased to officially announce the dates for this year's California Extreme Arcade and Pinball Show.  It will be held on July 25-26, 2020 at the same fantastic location - the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. Please join us for our 24th show with hundreds of your favorite arcade and pinball games, both past and present, all gathered for another fun-filled weekend of arcade excitement for everyone!

We are working on this yearís lineup of seminars, guest speakers, and other arcade-themed events that make the show so much fun each year. On that note, we are looking to you (as we have before), the arcade community, for suggestions for topics and speakers.  Is there something you would like to see presented (or even to present yourself)? This is your chance to let us know what you would like to see! Send us an e-mail at and let us know. We welcome all suggestions and will consider each one carefully.

Start making your plans, requesting time off work, making reservations by planes, trains, automobiles, and especially trucks to come out and join us for another crazy, arcade-filled weekend! And be sure to let us know if you're interested in bringing games and/or volunteering to help us out by contacting us at  Both are most welcome (and can be worth free admission and/or other goodies!).

Thanks to all our previous exhibitors and volunteers. We hope we can count on you again, and if you've never brought games or volunteered before, why not give it a try this year?  Even bringing one or two games is very much appreciated, and we have lots of space in two halls that we want to fill up as much as possible.  If you have more games you're considering bringing, contact us for more details.   Sure, it may be a little work, but you may be pleasantly surprised at how much more fun you may have in the end.  We promise!

We will announce later when the hotel will be accepting reservations (please donít contact the hotel as the block is not set up yet) and when show tickets will be on sale.

Yesterday, I looked into the website and found out that it is happening July 25 and 26, 2020.

However, pre-order tickets are not available yet at this time, despite wanting to get one so soon.

If any of the tilt switches have a capacitor across the lugs, it may be bad - try clipping it off to see if that helps.
