Welcome to the Northwest Pinball Collective (NWPC). We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Seattle, Washington. Our mission is to provide a shared space to celebrate, nurture, and expand the pinball hobby, in all its forms, through education, service, and community.
NWPC operates a membership-based community space in north Seattle called The Sanctuary of the Silver Ball for showcasing, playing, and maintaining the pinball machines of our members. The Sanctuary is all-ages, all the time!
The Sanctuary hosts 20 free play pinball machines available for our members and their guests during regular member hours from 10am-1am every day. Limited public event times can be found on our events page.
Our next public event is our Flipper Skills Class (5:30pm) and Free Play IFPA Tournament (7:30pm) on Thu Aug 13th – come check out our space and enjoy 20 free play pinball machines. If you also want to grab a membership, you can complete your new member orientation on-the-spot and have ongoing full access to the Sanctuary every day!
Coming this weekend Sat Aug 13th 2-5pm: Pinball Playfields 101 with Bill Witzel – Come learn about playfield care & repair at this free public event. Bill will cover cleaning & maintenance, and how to remove damaged mylar. We’ll start with a presentation, followed by Q&A, and then some hands-on work on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
