    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?

    Hey chubtoad13, you gotta' Flight 2000? Me too! In the basement with our mannequin, "Absynthe".

    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:

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

    >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....

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