    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    That picture taken over the surface of the air hockey table may be the best piece of photography in the thread.

    What air hockey table? That pic was taken near center ice.

    Quoted from jeep-mustang:

    Here's a few shots of my game room, we do poker and pinball every other Friday. Started as an unfinished storage area, couple years worth of messing with it when I got time and it turned out pretty good.

    That looks great......and comfy too.

    It's been 2 years since I posted photos of my suburban New Jersey basement gameroom. Below are a few current photos. The room is still a purely utilitarian space: a hodgepodge of throw rugs, pedestrian florescent light fixtures and plain cinderblock walls. . .nothing fancy. The best feature is the extra high ceiling, which is needed to slide up the backbox doors on woodrails.

    The line-up has changed since my last post on this thread. However, my collection remains primarily EM pinball and arcades, with several prewar pinballs and trade stimulators included for variety. Not pictured are a few of the prewar games, trade stimulators, coke machines, a Namco Rockin' Bowl-O-Rama videogame and a Sega Lunar Rescue EM arcade. A large HO scale slot car track is on the "disassemble list" to make room for more machines.

    Recently, I found the vintage cigarette rack at an antique shop and had to have it. I enjoy seeing the creative gamerooms displayed on this thread, especially the ones that reflect the personality of the pinsider.

    wow, what a simply stunning room. Thank you for sharing! I think you have almost every prewar game I've ever wanted.
    What is that blue + orange prewar table?

    Almost surprised to see no bingos though. Not a fan?

    Thank you. I admire the ingenuity of design in many of the purely mechanical and dry cell battery games. In my opinion, 1933, 1934 and 1935 were the 3 most significant years in pinball history.

    The prewar game to which you refer is a 1935 Daval Chicago Express. Photo attached. A very good demonstration of the gameplay can be found on YouTube. The other railroad themed prewar in my collection is 1934 Bally Signal Junior, tucked in a corner, and pictured below. Currently on eBay, a seller in Maine has both a Bally Senior and Junior for sale, both in nice shape.

    ZNET - Thanks for sharing -- that is an impressive, awesome, and eclectic collection! I am assuming that is the result of a couple of decades in the hobby as it takes time to acquire something of that diversity and completeness. Sweet!

    Thanks pacman11. My CFTBL is long gone. But, a custom illuminated Creech topper remains atop my Joker Poker EM, as shown below.

    I utilize the Creature stand-up to hide a bookcase full of pinball cleaning supplies. He doesn't seem to mind. In fact, he's happy living in my subterranean gameroom. He even has a serious girlfriend, Whoa Nellie's stand-up Melony. I have it on good authority that they met on the. . .you guessed it. . .on the. . .web. Sorry, couldn't resist.

    How is that Namco Bowling game holding up? I’d love to have one of those, but I have read that the drives crash on them and they can’t be fixed when they do. Any info?

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    I have owned several bowling games over the years. Namco's 2006 Rockin' Bowl-O-Rama is my favorite. Gameplay replicates bowling better than other bowling games, especially in terms of ball spin, in my opinion. The music and graphics are great. Trick shot games and poker bowling as well. Cartoons taunt players for poor shots and dispense comical praise for good ones.

    Up to 4 players can play. Laugh out loud fun and a permanent solid state game in my EM collection, which is a testament to how much I like the game.

    My game is running on its original proprietary operating system.

    I have a flash drive if the original system ever fails. I have heard that some of these flash drive alternatives are better than others. Also, they can require specialized skills to install and bypass the original operating system. Namco was very protective of its software back in 2006.

    I suggest that you contact Ray Brackins of Wide Area Repair in PA. Ray has restored them and is well-versed on this topic. PM me for Ray's cell, if you wish.

    Man I had a beautiful Pioneer setup like this but lost it in hurricane Katrina.

    #11519 1 year ago

    I had a fair amount of a storage room filled with vintage (late 70's) stuff. Just passed it on to a friend at work. Kenwood, Yamaha, BIC, Genesis speakers, even the brutal Dynaco 400 amp with mods (seem like it weighed as much a pin)! All pretty much in pristine shape, except speakers needed reconed from age. Everything in original boxes and all had original paperwork too. It needed a good home..

    #11528 1 year ago

    #11529 1 year ago

    I’ve chilled with Bruce at his pad many of nights. It’s a spectacular collection, and well cared for. Many interesting titles. Not sure I would’ve traded that prototype TZ though

    #11538 1 year ago

    Very jealous of anyone who gets to visit that awesome space.

    You're right, Colson. I probably should have kept that early sample TZ. I did, however, keep the miniature TZ, with its 3D playfield, created by a talented French artist.
