I broke ground on my backyard arcade today.......and I only have 2 pins!......So here is my thoughts (justification).
I have spent the last few years passing up potential deals, because I have no room in my gameroom inside, and don't just want to "store" good games in the garage. I have cathedral ceilings in my gameroom, and cannot fit anymore machines, because the knee walls are only 4'. I have no more "spare" rooms in my house, because I have 10 kids.
I am only 46, so I figured I could spend the rest of my life filling it up. I am making it 20x40 with a room over. It is going to look like an old western jailhouse. I will do almost all the work myself, so it will not be very expensive....it will probably take me all this winter.
I have been hearing everybody talk for years about how they want more machines, but run out of space. So I am taking an opposite approach....I figure if I build it "they" (the games) will come. Has anyone else ever taken this approach, or am I just crazy?
