    Quoted from AFM95:

    How often do you get a poker game going?

    Every other Wednesday with my regulars. About once a month or so with family and friends

    Quoted from Goronic:

    Little bit of everything

    Very nice space! We share a lot of the same interests it seems. I have a smaller, shittier space with a lot of the same (shittier) things.

    I've said here ad nauseam - a bristle dart board is an absolute must for any game room. It offers a great compliment to pinball, and takes up practically no active space. And, you can have the best equipment money can buy for under $200. Don't bother with the electronic dart boards - it's like paying more for a zizzle than a commercial pinball machine.

    That salt water tank looks really nice. I had a freshwater tank that I really enjoyed, but the monthly water changes became too much of a hassle with kids my age (4, 2, 2). I would consider another tank at some point if I could set it up in such a way to make maintenance easier (fill and drain lines in a room behind the tank, etc).

    Were nice game room!
    Also nice to see photos of the actual room, which I believe this thread is about.
    I think we all know what a specific title game looks like

    #12762 1 year ago

    It wouldn’t be hard to make a game name light like that. There’s a lot of mini led spotlights on AliExpress that could be used for under cabinet lights. Here’s a 12v led spotlight for less then $5, your just need to print a tiny image and put it on the end of the lens. I bet with a little searching I could find something that would work perfectly

    Look what I found on AliExpress

    Couldn't you just use transparency paper like what they used for overhead projectors back in the day?

    You can also do it with a cheap 4K TV and a compute stick. It plays the trailer for the movie displayed every once in awhile and switches as often as you want.

    It’s also linked to my server, so when I start a movie, you get the “Now Playing” one that synchronizes with the time left.

    That's the way to go.

    #12769 1 year ago

    I second that. Though the lighted posters are cool!! These you can set to rotate movies or pictures of pins. I would prob make it show B rated movies from the 80's!

    #12771 1 year ago

    I haven’t tried the Pi. I went with an Asus Vivo Stick ($100) and the MoviePoster App ($10). It’s really nice in that the software has a web based configuration option. So I can control the app from any device in my house.

    I don’t think I will replace all 6 of my full-size backlit slim frames with TVs. But I will look into using a nice 27 inch hdmi monitor or tv outside the movie room for that cool effect. Thanks for the information

    I definitely wouldn't either. I think they look great and would keep them just as they are. I was more throwing that out there for anyone considering some type of movie poster displays / boxes as an alternative.

    Great space you have there by the way.

    #12776 1 year ago

    lol - that's Kaneda's infamous apartment. There are plenty of stories to be had if you have the time.

    Oh.. WOW... well I just googled the guys name and I think I've caught myself up. After reading a wired magazine article on him and pinside.. He lost his fiancé and the arcade/pinball community critique him because he overspent on everything including a magic girl. Oh and some random sorority website tore into him about his bedroom and losing his gf. Missing anything, or am I caught up?

    #12780 1 year ago

    Unfortunately, there's a lot more. A lot of it I'm not privy to. I'm pretty sure we're not even supposed to mention him here anymore, like he's freaking voldemort.

    You can do a little digging into the fix-it-felix fiasco if you're interested. I think a lot of that lives on klov.

    He has also claimed to have been responsible for the release of the last GNR album, and apparently played a role in "the dude" stella superbowl ad.

    #12783 1 year ago

    Discussing bar height for our pass through bar/kitchenette counter top. Is 44”-45” countertop height ok? I know that’s considered a “tall” size bar, anyone here have one like that?

    Jumping in with an unsolicited opinion:
    1: WOZ
    2: DI
    3:POTC
    4:TH

    I would put them in opposite order . I had a rrwoz , have a Hobbit Le and have a pirates CE on order , just goes to show you everyone's taste is different

    #12785 1 year ago

    Thats what I would go with, Seems to be a good height!

    Can't really show the entire game room with one picture because its broken up across 3 rooms. I have 12 pinball games, 1 pool table, 1 dart board and two multicades, here is an update with the Munsters LE!

    #12790 1 year ago
    Quoted from Goronic:

    Curious how you would rank them 1 to 4 being an owner.

    Great question... one thing I would say about Jersey Jack is you never really want to sell any if you're a collector because all of their games are like artwork.

    If you take out the collectable side of the equation...

    1) Pirates
    2) Dialed In
    3) Wizard
    4) Hobbit

    I'm already lined up to get Willy Wonka so we'll see how that ends up!

    #12791 1 year ago
