    Is that enough to fit: MMR, AMH, and METLE comfortably? I measured the head of my METLE and it was 24 inches but I want to know from guys that have a lot of games in small spaces.

    I appreciate the help.

    Very slippery slope there. Be careful. We already noticed that you have ditched the kitchen table.

    3 should fit there, the issues I see are the window and that counter. I would suggest covers on the games during the day, to prevent UV damage to the games. Will there be enough room to get between the counter top and a machine, with the angle of that photo is not that apparent?

    The "counter" IS actually the kitchen table. LOL...I get your point

    Yes, I'm worried about those blinds. What if I cover the game next to the window and replace those blinds with black out blinds? Any thoughts on that?

    Personally, I'd also be considering blackout curtains. Especially if that window gets direct sun. As for fitting 4 games, do you have enough room to pull a game forward out of the line to work on it?

    That window gets indirect sunlight but it can be pretty intense. The blinds are always closed but I definitely want to use extra caution. My IMVE sat there for 4 months with no issues but half of that was also during the winter when UV rays are not as strong. I'll definitely measure and order some black out blinds right now.

    Thanks

    I've got four machines in a small spare bedroom, along with a desk and bookshelf. Couldn't possibly fit anything else. Measure your belly! I have to leave enough space between the games that I can slide in to work on them. Also need enough space in front of the machines to be able to pull the glass out.

    That's what I said 4 machines ago. There's always room for one more

    I'm currently dealing with 3 in my kitchen, one torn apart in my dining room, and one blocking the hallway to the stairs (in addition to their designated room). Disregard space concerns, acquire pinball.

    I should sort out my life.

    You measured wrong. But yes you can easily fit 3. I usually figure 30 inches per game. That leaves a little over an inch between heads

    In my game room, I have direct sunlight coming in all afternoon and evening.

    I installed thermal curtains and window film. Keeps almost all of the heat out and all of the UV rays out (I keep the curtains closed).
