About this Episode

Scott and Dudders visit the PAPA (Professional & Amateur Pinball Association) warehouse to chat with Special Events Director of ReplayFX, Fred Cochran. The warehouse contains 506 pinball and 300 video games from the 1950s to today.

Fred, Scott, and Dudders discuss how their love of arcade games began at Showbiz Pizza Place, Pizza Hut, and the Century III mall. Fred explains how the PAPA tournaments ended up in Pittsburgh and the creation of ReplayFX as a way to share their love of arcade games with future generations of gamers. He also lets us in on what it takes to bring some of these games back to life, what they do for fun at work, and the strangest and most unusual games in the warehouse.

Friday, May 13th, ReplayFX will have several pinball games at the Heinz History Center Pinball Game Night

This July, they're bringing every pinball and video game to ReplayFX at the David L. Lawrence Convention. The event also includes bands, tournaments for cast prizes, unlimited freeplay, and cosplay contests. For more information or to buy tickets visit ReplayFX

The warehouse (and all of those magical games) are available for corporate event rentals. Forget boring team building retreats in the woods. Battle, we mean, bond with you coworkers with video games.
