    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    For that kind of roof forget about roofing paper and shingles, use Ice Barrier in rolls and roll shingles. I did that on my garage addition that looks like yours and it will never leak now. And don't forget about a big gutter on the back side with long down spouts.

    Just fYI though, rolled roof is only rated for 7 years - the tar adhesion is very low

    Well I finally got some updated pics of our game house. Started as a huge poker player/party house and is now converting more to family fun center.

    First up the kitchen

    Next a bedroom. TV has NES classic with wireless remotes. I would highly recommend them.

    Hallway. My dad loves slots, so I buy him a slot machine every year for his birthday.

    Nicely done though!

    I want to add another moto GP and possibly a couple more Mario karts then the main house would be close to done. Also all the jelly domes (lighting) are linked and go to the beat of the music.

    Then it will be time tackle the garage. I can get some big boy games in there. We have big plans for in there DDR, JP and possibly a battle pod.

    There are some much nicer places on here. I think we have done pretty good with the space that we were working with. If we started from scratch this wouldn’t be the ideal set up but it sure is a fun place to hang out.

    #10964 10 months ago

    jorge5240 That is AMAZING. Do you ever open up the house to other local pinsiders/poker players? I’m next door to you in San Ramon. Also... Dubs, baby.

    The house is actually located in copperopolis on lake Tulloch. Is it about a hundred miles from San Ramón. If anyone ever makes it up that way and wants to stop but let me know. Lots of fun.
    I do have a couple games for sale, IJ4, Spider-Man and family guy. Going to buy a Maiden and probably move one of my games from DUBLIN to the lake because those games never get played and are top tier.

    #10970 10 months ago

    We have a lot of parties so I figured I give a list of what gets played by different demographics and most in general.

    1 Pac-Man battle royale. This was a great buy. Kids love it, not intimidating, great drinking game. If you have the room it is a great purchase.
    2 terminator salvation kids love it easy to play. Is repetitive but for parties a big hit.
    3 moto GP my kids love it. It is probably second favorite to Pac-Man right now. Adult males seem to love it. Want a second one to race.
    4 skeeball easy and can play a quick game. Gets lots of play.
    5 claw machine- my dad laughed at me when I bought this but a huge hit. We let the kids win as many prizes as possible and then let them each take one home.
    6 slot machines- older people love the slots. Like crack to them. My wife is a pretty big fan as well.
    7. Poker table- used to get hundreds of hours of play. Sadly had kids and my games have dried up. Miss this one

    Things that I thought get more play-
    Mario carts. They do alright but kids sometimes can’t reach the pedals.

    Bubble hockey just got it but takes some skill and intimidating to some.

    Big buck hunter- great game. I love it but just not easy to walk up and play. Doesn’t get the play I thought it would. Have zombies which you think would be a big hit.

    Finally and unfortunately pinball. If I don’t have a group of middle aged dudes over the odds out I will have a bunch four player games started that are never finished. I love pins and they are for me. But for our parties not the biggest hits.

    On the list once I get more spaces-
    DDR- wife wants one bad
    Jurassic Park arcade- whole family wants one
    Battle pod. This is mad dad’s baby. I know it is linear but this is what the man wants.
    Dart machine- I want one because I like drinking games but my wife is scared the kids will kill themselves
    Whac a mole- this for the kids. Think they would love it.

    #10971 10 months ago

    All your rooms look great but man I sure wouldn't want you Cal. electric bill.

    Funny you say that. We have an electrician coming next week to split circuits and add a panel. We are at about max capacity and when I add another GP and expand in the garage it won’t take it as is.

    Bill isn’t bad because I only run everything during parties. Otherwise I will only turn on a room or two.

    So if I understand this correctly you took your lake house and just made it into one big game room/house?

    Awsome

    #10977 10 months ago

    Jorge- if possible I would like to know where you buy your slot machines, and also, maybe a link for the wireless NES controllers.

    Your game room-house and the selection is great, just great. Whack a Mole would be awesome too, I see those pop up at Captain's Auction. Its a fun one to play and can get competitive with adults believe it or not.

    I get by Copperopolis a fair amount as I have some friends in Angels Camp. Also would like to stop by to visit the "upstairs" part with "live nudes". Wait, I mean, to play pinball! Actually that area is on my radar as a possible retirement venue, I have checked out the real estate there and there are some good possibilities for homes with extra buildings for something like this And lots of golf too.

    #10978 10 months ago

    Awesome house, two questions.

    Who is your neon hookup? I need a few signs at a decent price.

    And this one is for anyone. Why have slot machines in a home game room? Do you fill them with money for people to win?

    Awsome

    My family has had property on the lake for many years. Our neighbors wanted to sell their house a few years ago and prices were low, so my dad bought the house to protect his property. I used the house and had the upstairs for a gameroom. Than my wife and I got our own house and turned the other house into full on game house.

    I met my wife on the lake and we love it here. The plan is to move here one day and escape the bay.

    I know a dude in Brentwood who sells slots like those for good prices. Feel free to send me a PM.

    Great pad, Jorge5240! I'd have a tough time picking which room to hang in. Probably upstairs for the pins and beer.

    Bought the wireless controllers on eBay. Can’t seem to get the link but they were like $20 bucks and work awesome. Way better than the four foot cord that comes with the classic.

    I buy my slots from gamblers oasis. Mike is awesome to deal with and very helpful. Just do a web search or PM me.

    You wouldn’t slots would be good in a home environment but they are addicting as hell.

    This area is amazing for retirement. Lots to do relatively inexpensive. I used to work at saddle creek which is top level golf course in the summers while I was in college.
    Lake tulloch is one of only two lakes in california that can have homes built on the water and since the lake is a holding lake it stays full year round and is always clean.
    Great community, I know all my neighbors and have a beer with many of them.

    My friends moved up from Lodi a few years ago and they really like it. They are on Greenhorn golf course. I was just up there recently (went to the Lodi pinball show), yes, it is super nice.

    Thanks for the recommendation on the slots, I will check them out along with NorCalRealtor's guy who is actually close to me. I like the style of the slots you have, those 80s type ones with 1 payout line are my favorite, well because that's what we loved to play back in the day. I started a thread about slot machines in game rooms and there is a lot of good information there. I would be inclined to buy a big pile of the tokens from Amazon and use those instead of real coins by taking the magnet out of the coin detector, or however that works.

    jorge, where do you get your neon signs from? Looking for a few myself.

    Quoted from Raegor:

    Mostly craigslist, some eBay. I have someone locally that has made me some neon signs but she is not cheap.

    My wife told me I could only have one neon in our actual house here so I chose this one. It is 6 feet long. Lol

    Had some friend over and they had great time on lake and we crushed the game house. Again kids loved Pac-Man and The claw machine.

    When they left I have sat somewhat intoxicated and turned everything off and rocked the music and jelly domes. Just wanted to say the domes are an amazing product and add unbelievable ambiance. They are legit. I have them linked throughout the house with music controlled in each room.
    Awesome product!
    I have 6 going right now and soon to be 9.

    Two of the pin area and one of the area that keeps it running. Been some changes. LAH is gone to CA and I have added a Gorgar and an Elektra. Pinball Magic, Judge Dredd and Star Trek are going out next when they sell.

    Quoted from J85M:

    Yes full size. It is a gift I am not supposed to know about. I guess they don’t make them anymore and my dad had to purchase it from Australia.

    I have wanted one for many years but could never pull the trigger.

    Pull the trigger...get it? Good one.

    If I recall correctly somewhere way back in this thread there is a game room with one of those full size T2 robots.

    #10994 10 months ago
    Quoted from Rascal_H:

    Major renovations happening on my basement. Want to give it a real arcade feel. What’s a good paint color to go with the wood baseboard?

    That’s a tough call. Painting wood walls like that is always a little tricky. I would say sand it and stain it a different color, but that’s a bit of work. Just don’t go with fluorescent green.
