    Hello everyone,

    Would you say 30 inches is sufficient space to place a table for play .

    I think I have between 12-14 feet of wall space, how many pins could I fit along that wall?

    Measure the wall. Measure the pins. There’s your answer. Takes less time than posting on the internet about it.

    30 inches per pin is quite a tight fit. Depending on the brand and generation, the backboxes could already be too wide for that.

    I'd say you could fit approximately 4-5 pins along that stretch of wall.

    It really depends on the machines.
    Single player em's vs newer sterns.
    I would ballpark it at say 6 machines, fitting nice with no wide bodies.

    I just measured... It is exactly 15 feet from the outer edge of that Star Trek to the wall. That includes a ~2 foot gap to get to the closet between the TSPP and WW. That fits 4 Standards and 1 Widebody. It's more than enough for any 4 machines, but 5 would fit snugly.

    Keep in mind some people will space them out and others will put the machines very tight and almost have the backbox's rubbing. I personally prefer some space so I can get in between them and work on them when needed without having to move them. The extra space also allows you to see the beautiful artwork on the cabinet sides. Not all backbox's are the same width so it will depend on what games you are looking to get.

    Depends on what kind of table. Dinner tables can be large or small, ping pong tables are pretty large, exam tables seem to be cumbersome too.

    Pinball machines would be more suitable for entertainment though. (Just having fun)
