My game rooms are "The Bedroom", "The Living Room" and "The Foyer"!

Pincredible Arcade
Fliptastic Arcade
Empty Barrel Lounge
The Sanctuary

I need to come up with something I just call mine 'The Arcade'

#54 2 years ago

When my daughter was 8 or 9, she decided on Hot Shots Arcade. Years later, we have an actual logo that incorporates the names of our cats and a cool sunshine picture she drew as a kid.

Not mine, but an avid Bally collector calls his "Bally Boulevard"

Quoted from DCFAN:

The Upside Down Arcade is a great name if it is a basement arcade.

If by ‘basement’ you mean ‘second floor,’ then yes!

Silver Ball Cellar

Pin-Topia

Quoted from Mudflaps:

Great thread. I’ve been racking my brain on arcade names, so I’ll be checking back for inspiration.
I grew up at Aladdin’s Castle, and I love all things 80s, so I was trying to keep that same vibe.

Well your avatar is a B 52 so how about Bombers Arcade or the B 52 Arcade. Your welcome.

Arts Hookah Lounge

and what pray tell is in the Hookah young man.

Quoted from pinmister:

We call that room the "Holodeck" or "Arcade". The "Holodeck" button or voice commands "Computer, turn Arcade on" or "Computer, turn holodeck on" power everything up with ship noises playing in the background.

The whole game room is "Hot Shots Arcade". Logo is on the screen savers and coasters. The Trek themed room was an after thought I came up with part way through construction.

I named mine Pecos' Palatial Pinball Parlour when I only had four pins. I now have 37. I must be psychic!

Does anybody yell "embargo on" when it's time to shut the power off?

#70 2 years ago

The KahrCade.

... and the workshop in the unfinished area is The Factory because it's where I run Kahr.us Circuits.

Some years ago my wife and her friend named my arcade and painted this for me as a surprise.

I certainly have enough B-52 stuff to fill a room. I’ll add it to the list!

Call mine pinball haven.

The Growlery

Growlery \grou-‘ler-ē\ noun; a place of refuge or retreat when one is out of sorts or in ill-humor.

I have a couple others I've considered. "Pinball Paradise" and Just "Escape"

#78 2 years ago

Hmm...I've never really thought of it, but I might have to do with something with LIONMAN! I did photoshop together this poster as a fake vintage pinball tournament. I will also be converting all of my games to tokens. I like the name Pinball Fury or Pin-Fury, but that sounds more like a tournament then a location. Might just go with something like "The Den", as in the lion's den.

I would tell you but I don't know my wife got it for me.

#81 2 years ago

It has recently been suggested to me that I don't need a gameroom name for every room in the house....I have no idea what that means

#82 2 years ago

I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan. My gameroom is decked in Ghostbusters stuff including a Ghostbusters arcade machine and GBLE. My wife and I came up with Ecto-1 Arcade but then I shortened it to just Ecto Arcade. We're about to convert a 600 sq ft space into the new gameroom and I want to have a little diner section with one table and booth seating around it and the name for that little area of the Ecto Arcade is going to be "The Ghost Trap" since it's a holding area for people. Haha.

atthearcade , I think you should shorten it further to the Ecto-Cade.

My game room is just my basement and five pinball machines; but I have a theme I want to do. I live in Providence and love all things transit/subway. So my idea was to do a subway station type theme (like the warriors scene) and call it “Providence Under” . I have a few subway signs, and could paint a yellow line on the floor you gotta keep back from near the games.

#91 2 years ago

Here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada we have a few “named” rooms and many unnamed.

The named rooms are:
- Pinballs Anonymous
- Riverside Arcade
- Lightning Arcade
- Johnny’s Pinball Emporium
- Phantom Amusement
- Swanny’s Arcade (my room)

Love that idea! You could really go crazy with it too!

Life's Escape Room. Had a custom old fashioned sign made with gold flake paint. Escape the world with pinball, arcade games, billiards, foosball, darts, air hockey, and a future sports bar area with a megatouch. There will also be a football hall with football memirbelia. Renovations in progress.

Goodbye Galaxy Arcade

Commander Keen 3 title. I used a bunch of DOS era games as inspiration when making a list, Land of the Longue Lizards arcade was the other top choice.

I've been calling mine the b-list basement lately
