    I bought 1 more game than I have room for. Now that I can’t fit them all in a row, I had to choose between selling a game and doing some rearranging.
    I didn’t think I would like it, but it’s kinda cool with the Playchoice-10 in the middle. Plus the kids can reach the power button on Star Wars now.

    Moved a few games around and started to expand into the garage. My Daughter loves the Wonka movies and she is learning how to play now! Pretty awesome to see her getting into the hobby. Didn’t think that Wonka would be as fun as it is. Great addition to the lineup. The wine is for my wife putting up with my crazy hobby (even though she secretly enjoys the arcade)!

    I just ordered some fluorescent carpet for our small game room 12x20. How many black lights will I need to get a good effect?

    Spend the money and get 3/8 inch thick Memory Foam padding and use 4inch diameter carpet sliders from Home Depot, the dents spring right back.

    Yeah, but I am only urging him to max out the one room that he is already occupying.

    It is not like I suggested to do what I did and put games in the dining room, living room, garage and all 3 bedrooms.

    #14823 7 months ago

    I help people reach their full potential of their rooms by helping reorganizing to get that one last game in. There is normally room for just one more.

    I have been planning an addition to my basement am I am considering doing an epoxy floor similar to ramegoom (picture below) in the addition. I was wondering if ramegoom or anyone else would share any information they could regarding it including installation cost/time, professionally done or DYI, Is the floor cold, insulated under the slab, or in floor heat? Also, the durability of the floor, what kind of protection under the game feet (sliders, felt, etc) and if it has been scratched, is that permanent or can it be buffed out?

    ramegoom, your gameroom is awesome, btw

    Thanks for the kudos. I used a material called "polyaspartic" which is similar to epoxy but more rugged, and almost odorless. It's 2-part material, and the color (or in my case, aluminum flakes and powder) is added to the mix and either rolled or trowled on. You start with a black binder, and add the top coat. If you trowel it on, you can get the 3-D effect (and spritz on Acetone while it's still wet to give the effect) but if you roll it on, it simply colors the floor. You can use any color you want. Look it up, it's more expensive than carpet, but can take a lot of abuse. And, if you drop the wine glass on it, just mop it up. Scratches can be touched up with car touchup paint. I have put various nylon or felt glides on all my machines so they can be slid around without damaging the floor. I have some very heavy machines in the room, and all are placed on carpeted furniture glides to make things easy to move around. The room has evolved several times over the years, and the floor still looks brand new. You can use floor wax on it for the occasional shine, but I really don't do that. Just a mop and bucket after every party and looks good as new. You do tend to pick up a few scratches, but the trowled-on effect makes them invisible. A smooth rolled on finish might make scratches more obvious.

    I have a heating system in the room, but very rarely use it. Here in Colorado, Radon gas is prevalent, so I have a vacuum pump that removes it from under the floor - the standard parting lines are open and aid in removal of any gas. Always tests clean and it actually helps heat the floor since it's always pulling air outside. My house is a ranch, 2900 sq. ft upstairs and 2900 sq. ft. in the game room so any heat or cooling upstairs works its way downstairs quickly.

    All background lighting and very machine in my game room is fitted with LEDs, so the power consumption is very small and inexpensive. It also keeps the radiated heat down. I have had parties with around 60 guests and it is still comfortable once it's in gear.

    I have added more stuff, so I guess I should post some recent pictures. Gadgets in the room are constantly evolving.

    #14828 7 months ago

    Thanks for the quick reply! I will check out Polyaspartic. Just in the planning stages now, but pretty sure this is the look I am going for on the floor.

    #14829 7 months ago

    It's the first thing observed and commented on, whenever I get visitors. Really makes the room stand out.

    #14830 7 months ago

    Hah, I was thinking the same, that floor looks great...

    Lots of really good game rooms here, but you are all a bunch of pikers compared to this guy.

    https://www.mecum.com/auctions/vannoy-2020/lots/featured/

    Scroll down and look through the collections, it's unbelievable.

    The TV commercial they are running on the current Mecum show shows a row of pinball machines but I haven't found them in the collections.

    I believe someone once posted this before, but does anyone have any tips for taking photographs of pinball machines when they are on? The backglass always seems to wash out in the pictures I take.
    Thanks!!!

    Thanks!!!

    If you are going for anything other than a snapshot, it’s hard as hell to photograph pinball machines, on or off. You have reflecting glass and pinpoint light sources all over the place. You have to apply a variety of photography principles concerning exposure, lighting, shielding, camera placement etc to get good photos.

    This web site is a decent reference.

    https://www.flippers.be/photograph_intro.html

    Here’s a decent lit backglass photo I took.

    http://www.xsvtoys.net/images/pinball/bon%20voyage/Bon%20Voyage%20backglass%202.jpg

    And non lit.

    http://www.xsvtoys.net/images/pinball/bon%20voyage/Bon%20Voyage%20backglass%201.jpg

    Both of those took a lot of effort. For the lit ones you have to get the exposure right. For the non lit ones you have to cover the playfield and figure out a way to hide your camera so it doesn’t show up as a reflection.
