    Somewhere along the line, the number of games in a personal collection exceeds the number of reasonable places to put them. How many rooms in your house or apartment do you currently have games in?

    #3 1 year ago

    any bathrooms?

    #4 1 year ago

    2-Living room and a pool table
    1-Spare bedroom
    4-Office or other spare bedroom
    2-Basement

    #5 1 year ago

    Two rooms, 10 pins:

    Theater/game room - 6 (3 JJP, 3 CGC, and multicade)
    Converted bedroom - 4 (Sterns, dart board and 4 Arcade1ups for the kiddos)

    #6 1 year ago

    Same, 6 rooms, 3 locations

    Pinballers gotta do what a pinballers gotta do...
    in order to pack 'em in.
    Personally, five machines: two up and three down.

    Nice looking game!

    #10 1 year ago

    I keep them all in one room. I’ve had one in the living room temporarily, but I prefer to have them all in one area.

    The most I’ve seen is 4 in one location. Garage, living room, spare bedroom, and kitchen.

    #11 1 year ago

    One in the living room, 7 on my attic!

    That’s a nice Scared Stiff you have

    #13 1 year ago

    Normally 3 rooms , all designated as game rooms. But have room for one overflow in the TV room when needed.

    Right now my Jurassic Park is taking that space. Lol.

    Total of 20 pins.

    #14 1 year ago

    All of them. And, no, I’m not married.

    #16 1 year ago

    1100 sq ft mobile. 6 in master, 3 in bedroom 1, 3 in bedroom 2, 6 in living area. Still have room for a few more machines.

    #17 1 year ago
    Quoted from chubtoad13:

    any bathrooms?

    Yes. In my basement the shower that I do not use has pinball machines in storage.

    #18 1 year ago

    19 games, two rooms that are effectively one big room (open living room plus dining room). Hard line against spreading out more.

    #19 1 year ago

    Living room: 3
    Dining room: 2
    Kitchen: 2
    Office : 1

    #20 1 year ago

    You might want to also ask, How many homes do you have games in.

    Ok, I’m creeped out AND turned on.

    #22 1 year ago

    4 rooms. I wish I could put them all in one big room, but I don’t have a space that big.

    #23 1 year ago

    6 dining room, 9 garage ,1 office , 7 mom garage
    was told if any more are brought in the house I will be staying with the 7 in moms garage...but that is where space shuttle is.

    #24 1 year ago

    A couple good size rooms with another waiting to get finished..

    Most impressive.

    #26 1 year ago

    Game room 18
    Small room off game room 4
    Laundry room 2
    Dining room 1

    #29 1 year ago

    Master, Top Card is on the left. Not in pic.

    #30 1 year ago

    Basement and Garage. But every room/area in basement except bathroom. Current agreement is no pins upstairs, trying to renegotiate ...

    Quoted from RCA1:

    Game room 18
    Small room off game room 4
    Laundry room 2
    Dining room 1

    Can you still do laundry?

    #32 1 year ago

    One room. Game room with bar. Normal limit is 12. Room for like 2-3 overflow as necessary but try to keep it to 12

    #33 1 year ago

    I started with one in the basement game room and had no room for more. Put one in the upstairs office but had to get more. Hated to put more upstairs or in separate rooms when I have a full dedicated basement game room. Decided to move my gym to a now unused back bedroom and converted the entire basement gym to pinball space. Now can get mine down there all together. Room for one more. I’m like Chuck I want them all together and in the basement. I am however putting a Skee ball and commercial basketball machine in my first floor office. Then I’m done.

    #34 1 year ago

    All in basement as well. But divided to 4 different rooms. Wish it was one open room but it is what it is.

    #35 1 year ago

    One room all in basement

    #36 1 year ago

    Gah! I can’t handle multiple rooms, I have 10 in a basement room, which has worked great until I hit 11 I’d like to keep at home. The others have always stayed at my office, with a little swapping titles now and then.

    #37 1 year ago

    One large basement room. Eleven in a single row. Could get rid of pool table and get more but...

    #38 1 year ago
    Quoted from GamerRick:

    Then I’m done.

    I've lost count how many times I've said that over the years.

    Quoted from topkat:

    Can you still do laundry?

    Yes, but pinball is more fun.

    (Laundry room is oddly large. Washer, dryer, laundry sink, sorting table all in there, plus 2 pins, EM gun game, and full size fridge. All usable, playable.)

    #40 1 year ago

    This should be who is married and who isn't? haha.

    #41 1 year ago

    I would never hear the end of it from my wife if they spread to the main living area of the house.

    2 "rooms".

    One dedicated area on the main property and one offsite secure storage for the overflow/machines set aside for sale.

    With 90+ I would imagine the overflow is quite a flow

    Wait a minute. You are storing pinball machines under pinball machines? Brilliant, Steve!! Why didn’t I think of that?

    #46 1 year ago

    2 - Garage and Guest room.
    Being in California it’s very rare to have basements and I’m jealous for all those who have that option

    For those who stated who put them in 3+ rooms and are with a significant other... how the HELL did you get them to sign up??

    What angle did you use to tactically flow over to new rooms? I’m finally making the kids have bunk beds to get a game room for us

    I hope it lasts for a while.

    #47 1 year ago

    1 dedicated room.

    Building a bigger house to have a bigger dedicated room.

    #48 1 year ago

    I think number of pins in house is up to 25 pins. Basement in 3 different rooms and on second floor in two bedrooms. No pins on main floor. Wife only gives me so much space. Got more pins in storage waiting their turn.

    311 holy shit! And you are still married? Does she have a cute sister?
