    2 rooms currently. Was 3, two years ago.

    Wow! Thanks each of you for responding to my simple question with so much enthusiasm. As Dave Barry said, "there is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"".

    For those of you who can get to the Northwest, check out these guys in Hillsboro, OR. Their collection moved to a commercial building and is now open for public play on weekends, under the name "Next Level Pinball Shop" (btw, that's me in the pic, not the owner). I think they're at about 230 games (pins and arcades) and preparing to double that:

    Currently games are in 10 rooms. Not just pins, but pachinkos, pachislos, vids, etc. Had lots of space after the divorce....

    #54 7 months ago

    All games are in the same room.

    #55 7 months ago

    they are in: 2 bedrooms, hallway, dining room, living room (does the hallway count as a room?)...I am trying to downsize...

    #56 7 months ago

    1 room. 9 pins.

    #57 7 months ago

    An arcade room w/ a GT, a 2500 in 1 & two touchscreens (JVL & Merit). The pin room is in the back of the house that only has enough room to accommodate three pins. We rotate pins quite often.

    My home has 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, large mom in law 2 story addition...so how many? Yes.

    Quoted from chubtoad13:

    any bathrooms?

    I had a Dig Dug in the bathroom for a couple of years. No, it wasn't a cocktail table.

    I don't feel too bad about carving out new real estate in my "art" room for this garage-find Flash....

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    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.

    Now that’s a pinballer! You have more money in pins than you do in house. Love it.

    Tidy up that said
    "art room" and you could fit three more!

    #63 7 months ago

    game room , living room , & dining room ....... & I kind of miss having the one in the entrance foyer by the front door

    #64 7 months ago

    I guess it's technically two rooms right now, but they are all in the basement and there isn't a door between the rooms, just a change in flooring.

    #65 7 months ago

    My 2nd bedroom has games - 1 room
    My friend's basement has 3 of my games - up to 2 rooms
    My brother's house has 1 of my games - up to 3 rooms
    My distributor is holding on to a few NIB games in his warehouse - up to 4 rooms

    Currently building a house with a big enough basement to hold them all...so in 6 months it will be down to 1 room

    #66 7 months ago

    >Tidy up that said "art room" and you could fit three more!<

    Hi rollitover - that big mess is actually the garage the game's coming out of tomorrow. The art room's in pretty good shape and ready to receive Flash. Apropos of this thread, it bumps our number of rooms with games up from 1 to 2. We're on the slippery downhill slope....

    #67 7 months ago

    Two rooms in my basement. It would be every single room in my house but the wife won't allow it. I have a pin that I ran out of room for up at my parents house and yet another pin I ran out of room for up at a friends house, so maybe that counts as four rooms in three houses?

    10 years ago I only wanted one pin for my rec room. I was warned that he who buys one pin will inevitably buy another... and another... and another. Now I'm up to 8 (if you consider Zizzle's and Star Galaxy 'real' then its 11).

    Damn if that isn’t true. I planned to get one. Then decided just one more. Eleven months later I’m at 8. The need to get more does not seem squelched yet damn it.

    I hear ya. After I was filled to space capacity at 3 pins I told myself that if I were to ever get another then I would have to sell one from my collection to pay for it and make room. Yeah that never happened. Instead I ended up remodeling the unfinished portion of my basement to expand my game room to make additional space. I figured I could stick *one more* machine in there and maybe a couch and display some collectibles. That room now has nothing but three full sized machines and two 1/3-sized Zizzles. For some reason I just couldn't part with any of my pins. I think buying that first machine a decade ago triggered an addiction.

    #70 7 months ago

    16 pins, 1 vertical disc game and 4 arcade machines in my basement game room, 3 pins in various stages of restoration and 1 arcade machine in the garage. As much as the wife loves pinball she won’t let me bring any into the main part of the house.

    #71 7 months ago
    Quoted from YZRider926:

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

    I'm married...so only 2 rooms with pins. I am seriously considering expanding to a 3rd room, however.

    #72 7 months ago

    Currently 9 in the basement, in my head I have space for 20 mapped out. "But maybe #21 could fit here, and if I moved this cabinet there's #22, and maybe I could move the boiler for #23 and #24 there," and so on. This is what I daydream about, where to cram in more pinball machines long before I actually own them.

    Would love to start putting some in our third floor loft/pool room, but besides two flights of narrow stairs to navigate there's dormer ceilings up there, and those are pinball kryptonite. Thankfully my wife loves pinball, so there's little fuss.

    19 games in 2 rooms, but with oldest doughter moving out most probebly games in 3 rooms very soon

    #74 7 months ago
    Quoted from RCA1:

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

    Update:
    Dining room 2, as of today.

    #75 7 months ago

    Currently 3 rooms including the garage, living room, and dining room, but any damn room in my house I want them in depending on my mood.

    Now we've got 2 games in one room, and one game in three rooms (the sign of a sympathetic wife):

    All 14 working and 2 project pins in the basement. I’d rather have them all down there, it’s an escape from normal life above the basement. I tell people that as a (sole proprietor) piano tuner I can’t justify taking week-long unpaid vacations, so my basement full of pins IS my vacation.

    You can tune a piano, but you can't........... oh wait, you CAN tune a pin.

    #79 6 months ago

    Basement only. I could have 6 comfortably
