    Does anybody do this? I'm looking at an apartment right now in a basement location with roughly 850sq/ft and I'm like "I really like Pinball and that Pinball machine would really tie the room together".

    Actually, I have 7!

    I live in a 740 sq/ft open plan apartment and have two machines in the corner of the living area. It is useful to have a dad who lives nearby, has more room, and is also into pinball for overflow storage though!

    Sure, just be a nice neighbor and don't play the machines at odd hours, they can get pretty loud

    I've got six machines and a bed in the bedroom of my apartment. Plus the one the roommate likes in the living room

    No noise complaints in 3 years of pin ownership for me.

    Though, it's an old concrete building and I don't play after 10 PM, unless it's the weekend.

    I put a few of these down under my pin to stop it from sliding around on the hardwood floor, but it's awesome for reducing noise as well.

    I've got three cocktails and one full sized pin in my bedroom, and a full sized machine squeezed into my living room. I'm in a one bedroom 2nd floor apartment. I previously had no complaints, but when I got my Xenon machine, which is the one in the living room, the bi*ch upstairs started banging on the floor.

    The same one who thinks she lives in Planet fitness. She exercises, runs, jumps and stomps all day long, and her and her significant other frequently make me jump out of my sleep as they usually come in after midnight and stomp and drop things hard on the floor, not to mention the rabbit sex they have.

    I generally do not play after 9 PM, but sometime on Friday or Saturday I will play until 10. I live in a co-op, and this apartment was bought outright, no mortgage. What are my rights? I generally don't complain about noise as I'm from the "live and let live" school. But it really pissed me off that the "See You Next Tuesday" upstairs had the balls to get mad and bang bang bang because I was playing my Xenon.
