    Just finished putting some final touches on my game room. I had a tight budget and a small room to put something together, but I am very happy with how it turned out. I tried to tie in all of my main hobbies (pins, games, turntablism, gems & minerals, cactus and succulents, record collecting, my music business, etc.)

    I have some numbered and signed silk screen pinball art to put around the room. First is the 'Solenoids & Asteroids' design by Graham Pilling, I feel that truly embodies the battle of pinball and having that space themed poster next to the BH really works well.

    There are two posters by Dirty Donny. One is the 'Master Blaster' which technically isn't pinball related besides looking like the inspiration for Sparky from Metallica Pinball (which is a game I dream of owning), but the 'Zodiac' poster from DD is pinball related. I really like his style and love that he incorporates Pinball into his art. The blacklight aesthetic truly makes it feel like a room to have a drink, listen to music and play pins.

    I have my shelves full of the rare gems and minerals I collect, as well as my turntables and victorian Morris Chair with the lion heads and paws. Love sitting in that thing. And a small mini fridge packed with waters, craft beers and craft sodas. I installed some LED spotlights on the shelves for the rocks and threw some small blacklights into small lamps to make the posters glow.

    Final steps here is to throw a stand-up arcade cabinet in that closet like area in the corner next to the records. Other than that, I am feeling like this room is ready to rock.

    Very classy! Nice job on incorporating the Blacklight Posters without making the room look like you just got back from Spencers Gifts at the mall!

    Man, some of guys have game room "mansions" - absolutely gorgeous jobs everyone!

    I finally got my trifecta of NIB games completed as of yesterday. Took nearly 2 years, but hey, I am 100% pleased with them .

    20151228_234232_(resized).jpg

    The cherry on top will be when I bring home AFM. That was the game that got me started on pinball in 1995 at a laser tag chain known as Q-ZAR. Fond memories - I missed whole laser games to keep battling martians. It won't be happening anytime soon, but that's ok - things worth doing are worth waiting for. We'll get there!

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    Although I started a separate thread on the build of my game room, here are some images of the end result, fitting the title of this thread. Missing a few key items, but basically all there and ready to fire up. I was fortunate in that I had 2900 sq. ft. of space to "have at it". So I did.

    Quoted from tiltmonster:

    Being a die hard Eagles fan I will always love B Dawk. The Liberty Bell and B Dawk are created by a local artist that makes Philly themed pictures that are actually made up of a bunch of words smashed together to create one single image. The Liberty Bell is the words of the constitution and B Dawk is one of his famous pre-game speeches mashed together to make the shot.

    Quoted from Aladdin:

    Very classy! Nice job on incorporating the Blacklight Posters without making the room look like you just got back from Spencers Gifts at the mall!

    Thank you. I had to come up with a way to get the illumination pinpointed on the poster and not much else. I also had to have the bulb not be visible at all because they are a bit unpleasant to look at directly. As you said it can take over the room and I wanted to avoid that, and so did my girlfriend who I share this home with. She was worried about everyone's teeth and clothes glowing when they walked in the room. Not very classy. I happened to find small compact blacklight bulbs and got creative with extending the edges of the lamps with gaffe tape to funnel the light to the poster, block the view of the bulb and contain the blast of neon purple. Turned out better than I originally imagined.

    That was the game that got me started on pinball in 1995 at a laser tag chain known as

    I use to LOVE going to Q-Zar when I was 13-15 years old out here in CA (1995). I still hold onto almost every games score sheet in a filing cabinet for nostalgia, I wasn't good by any stretch but I have more then a couple TOP GUN's so thats what kept me coming back by walking and taking a bus mind you. (took about a good hour to get there) Then my best friend and I could play two 20 minute matches for 5 bucks with these coupons that were on the back of grocery store receipts.

    I don't recall any pins being there but this was the same time that I got hooked on pinball because I use to play The Getaway at this sandwich shop (Jersey Joe's Philly cheese steaks) that had a $1.99 hoggie sandwich with unlimited fountain soda special I would get for lunch because the entire school had off campus lunch. So my pre car years lunch time excursions were mainly centered around food and arcade games because they had SF2, MK1,2 and 3, Tekken and and a pins spread between 7-11, pizza by the slice place, a pool hall and this super cool smoke shop that would sell us high schoolers anything in his store.

    Wasn't the 90's cool like that?

    #5718 3 years ago

    The 80's arcades were pretty amazing when I was a kid.

    Basement is finally coming together. Still needs a bit of tidying up... Perhaps some proper blinds heh. But once my Met Pro gets here it looks like I'm all filled up. Couldn't be happier. Just wish there was another pinsider in Jersey City to nerd out with!

    Speaking of drums, you guys ever hear of Ellis Drums? My friend Tim Ellis (a drummer of many years) started his local company making custom drums. I think it's www.ellisdrums.com.

    VERY nice setup! Love the multiple splashes and Chine Boy. After keeping mine in storage spaces and hallways for the past ten years in the NYC area I'm ecstatic to finally have a place to set them up. Unfortunately drumming is not like riding a bike but I'm having a blast getting back into the swing of things!

    I'm tired of having basement envy. A basement in CA is like a unicorn. I'm considering going this route:

    My girlfriend is sleeping so I don't want to turn on my modest pinball collection, but I'm sitting at my bar right now, to which I just added LED lighting behind the bottles, as learned from the almighty John Taffer, and I thought I'd share.
    The bar was made with leftover wood from the living room floor.
    Also on display is a vintage peanut machine given by a friend of mine which I semi-restored, and my Surf Champ Arduino clock project.

    I still have the code somewhere when you get there.

    Data East. Want to play with the new code for a while. Plus think it will be cool to have an IJ and a SW sitting next to each other.

    Quoted from RDReynolds:

    Be careful when you put them next to each other. Mine were always talking behind my back about finding a way to off my SW Episode I... so, I had to get rid of it. They are much happier now.

    #5738 3 years ago

    I had an RFM with a borrowed SWEP1 kit. Both are gone. I miss the RFM a little, the SWEP1 not so much.
