Am I right in thinking that there are two separate arcade machine/pinball events on, on 16th April?

I have emails from Play Expo in Leeds on 16th and one for 8 bit flip which is at Arcade Club 15th and 16th?

If there is a clash, any idea as to which will be the better one to go to I.e. which will have best selection? I'm guessing that a lot of people on here will be taking machines to one or the other.

Cheers

Andy

Seems odd that both events are running on the same days, are there not enough weeks in the year to separate them?

Both will have lots of pinballs and vids, the only real difference prob being is that Play Expo will have more traders and lots of modern stuff and cosplay, if you just want Pinballs & vids go to Arcade Club...

Bury and Leeds are well connected with the M62 and no more than an hour apart, you could do both.

What makes a visit to Arcade Club different for the average punter when 8 bit flip is there? Honest question.

I think there is more pinball machines, and also 2 different pinball tournaments running on the Saturday and Sunday.

I think the amount of arcade cabinets/pinballs will be considerably higher at Arcade Club than Play expo.

Play expo more for console/computer stuff I would imagine, but with the bonus of some arcade cabs/pinballs.
