    Haha that's funny because I am actually not a huge fan of MET. Not sure why, maybe the art package, the theme, the ruleset...? It just never did anything for me personally.

    I just have to say that you know a pin is good when its in nearly every game room it seems. Metallica for the win!!!

    I concur!

    MET and LOTR are my all-time favorites. Seems like the other two slots I have rotate but those are permanent fixtures...

    Have you fully read the rule set and really understand the game? The rules are incredible IMO.

    Hardly. I've been to lots of local game rooms and only one has Meh-tallica.

    (I just thought of that! Nothing against the game, I understand it's awesome. Too bad it's got that band for a theme.)

    And however good it is, it's sorta there by default, since the guy gets just about every pin Stern puts out. (Of course the clunkers get rotated out, so we can conclude it doesn't suck, at least...)

    I keed, I keed. Someday I'll spend some real time on it and wind up wanting one, I'm sure!

    #7310 3 years ago

    yeah, i hate the band with a passion.

    Not much compared to some rooms on here, but my little sanctuary. Current set up, but going to rearrange this weekend to make it much more functional and flowing........umm, plus a few more games are on the way. So much for downsizing.

    I'm just saying the gamerooms posted here. B
    More often then not, Met is present. Must be less civilized around here!!

    My first game room was a 12X12 portable building (wife got tired of pins in the dining room) Was able to have 4 games in it.

    Probably a correlation between having the money for new games and having a game room of showing-off caliber!

    We're in the process of moving so I'll have to wait to hang this new beauty I picked up the other day.

    Totally, I have seen the evolution of my addiction as well!

    I started by using an extra bedroom (because kids like to sleep two to a room)

    Now I'm in a separate building.

    Besides re-painting and re-carpeting my gameroom in the past few months, I've also turned over about half the games in my collection since I last posted in this thread so I figured it was time to post some new pics! I'm pushing the limit of how many games I can fit comfortably but sure I could still find a way to sneak one more game in if I needed to

    Finally got around to pic'ing and posting after a 2K+ mile move from almost a year ago now. A second master BR became the game room. It's an odd shape but everything fits perfectly, as I envisioned when I first walked through the house before buying. I'm not a huge fan of white walls and carpet, but I played the hand dealt me rather than spend $ to change it to a more suitable game room palette. It's growing on me.

    That skeleton is freaking awesome! Great use for a closet too.

    As cool as all those games are, I agree it's too many for the room.

    Really hard to follow up some of these amazing rooms, but I'll give it a try. This is our first home and starter home. The deal going in was that I would get one room to do as I pleased and the old lady got to decorate the rest of the house as she saw fit. I lucked into a house with a nice basement that can comfortably fit 5 pins and a MAME cab with room for a couch and tv too (not pictured). Eventually I'll have a theater projector in front of the couch for our viewing pleasure. This is as it sits right now, but I'm about to start selling off some pins to save up for my next Star Trek pin in hopes of having them all one day.

    Quoted from netman63129:

    I just took some new photos of the entire collection. The framed Permanent Waves was the first concert I ever attended so it has my t-shirt, ticket stub, and the set-list, along with the signed album. The albums are in date order from left to right. It is interesting to see vinyl making a small comeback so there are even a few recent albums (Muse, Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree).

    Loving the wall. I bet we've seen the same bands/tours just in different cities.
    My first four bands/concerts were Thin Lizzy, Molly Hatchet, Blue Oyster Cult, & Rush.
    Huge Rush Fan.

    Cool Stuff

    I see a pool table in the other room that would open up some space...

    Your game room is amazing!

    Thanks! I pulled it out of a way gone cabinet I bought athis an antique store for 100.00. Water had corroded all the leaf switches....but I cleaned up the cabinet and made a virtual pin. Me and my son rewired the playfield for the lights.....I'll probably use it to practice playfield restoration painting when I get around to it.

    I need to slim down too, but you can't ever have too many pinball machines.

    Moved into my first house about a month ago, so I haven't done much decorating, but here's the basement:

    Left to right:

    Thunder Blade
    Jungle Lord
    Black Knight
    Gorgar
    Blackout

    Not Pictured:
    Fire!
    Big Guns
    Sorcerer (pick it up Saturday)
    Space Invaders II cocktail arcade

    Three of them here. Not sure if I've got one to go or three to go. Depends on which list you look at.

    how does the Jungle Lord play? I picked one up a couple of months ago and am having it refurbished. Should be getting it back in a week or two.

    Quoted from Dooskie:

    In my opinion, great. I think it is an underrated game and I enjoy it even more than Black Knight...maybe even my favorite playing pin in my collection.

    **EDIT: I should also add my girlfriend really likes Jungle Lord and she doesn't really like pinball. I'm still working on that, but I have turned her into a bit of a Space Invaders (cocktail arcade) addict.

    Here are a couple more pics from the basement, including one with better lighting and a shot of some of my defunct casino poker chip collection.

    Haven't posted an update in a while. 12 pins in one room. The 2 music themed pins in the living area and Big Betty's Truckstop is in storage. Been playing Elvis a bunch now that it's out in the living area. Forgot how enjoyable it can be, fun game. Currently GB and TAF getting heavy play as well.
