    Thanks! We love our basement and spend a lot of time down there. We are thinking of moving to Arizona within the next few years, and we'll really miss having that extra space.

    Quoted from atrainn:

    Nice groove coaster!

    Thanks! I originally bought it for my daughter who is super into Vocaloid, but it quickly became one of my favorite games in my collection. I had been looking for a nice one for a while, and I was lucky that a super cool guy on Pinside helped hook me up with a beautiful example out in California. Most people who come over really seem to love it. It's definitely way more popular than the pins with non-pinheads.

    Well that’s it. I’m at capacity now! Not sure what I’ll do when GnR finally gets here.

    I’ve been forced to put a few games into storage position. It’s a little heartbreaking but at least I am not forced to sell them.

    Amazing place! Love the wall decorating playfields. Why don't you turn the Champion Pub and STtnG round 90deg so you can get to them better?

    Both not working. That is my work area if you could call it that.

    Anyone have a gameroom with woodrail pins all over? Maybe lit up? A speakeasy theme would be cool if I owned them and had the room.

    Quoted from Viggin900:

    Not all over as I only have one woodrail (more on the wish list for sure), but doesn't look too shaby next to another oldie. Wife just got me a sign I think looks cool.

    This is another room... the plan with this is to make it a cinema/music room... maybe with one or 2 pins... time will tell.

    Current Home collection. One of these has to move to the office to make room for R&M in 2-3 weeks. Will be a tough decision.

    #17388 20 days ago
    Quoted from Roostking:

    Did you inherit this equipment?

    Nope, this is the result of 25 years of collecting. About 10 years ago I moved house, moved countries in fact, and have not yet got the new place in a condition ready to set these things up... was reconstructing an old house, plus extending it... took 8 years with all the planning to get it in a state where we could live in it, and the last 2 spent on the 'man cave' side of it, the main pinball room being the next on the agenda. 'Till that's ready, the pins are mainly folded away, waiting! This is the current state of the main pinball room, working on the skirting at the moment. Progress is slow due to having young kids.

    Quoted from Methos:

    Looks like the opening of King Tut's tomb.

    Assuming king Tut was a pin-head

    That is a huge room, looks awesome and looks like you are close to finishing it - Assuming the cabinets are a bar? What kind of lights for the ceiling, and what will the ceiling finish be?

    #17390 20 days ago
    Quoted from ToucanF16:

    20 pins? What’s square footage? Nice game room.

    20. Of the space they are crammed in to, not sure of the space being occupied. The entire house is around 3500 sq. Ft.

    There is more space down there but my wife says the kids need a play area and there is a room down there dedicated to my 9 year old’s Legos.

    Quoted from ReadyPO:

    Not sure what you mean there... you mean you assume the cabs in the previous photo will be made into a bar? In which case, no... they all have heads and will hopefully be complete working games... one day!

    As for the ceiling lighting, good question! I've got a load of stripped playfields that I'm planning to use as a kind of suspended ceiling, with any large holes blocked off, and with lighting behind them... thinking of using RGB lighting for this. Another circuit will turn on a load of wall lights that will shine on back glasses... a 3rd and 4th circuit will light up some normal ceiling lights, one circuit for each 'corridor' of pins... that's the plan at the moment...

    I'm pretty sure he's talking about the big cabinet looking thing in your pictures.

    Glad to see you're making progress! Time to get back to work in mine. Tore down the rest of the walls yesterday...

    Yes, I was talking about the row of cabinets clamped together in front of the window.

    Ceiling plan sounds cool, I couldn't figure out what the wires were since the ceiling was drywalled I didn't think suspended

    For all you electricians and experts who built and wired their own gamerooms out there, can you recommend the proper electrical setup for a basement with 15-16 pins and several other electrical devices (toppers, a tv, etc.)? I bought this house in 2009, built in 1995, before I was a collector. The current system can support almost all the games, but if I turn on all of them, I blow a fuse. I’m concerned I’m asking too much of the current system, no doubt designed for average household use. If I want an electrician to boost the electrical, what would you suggest I step up to? Thank you!

    #17398 20 days ago
    Quoted from ReadyPO:

    Yes, I was talking about the row of cabinets clamped together in front of the window.

    Ahh, that's just a work bench, the top was taken off to use as an actual work bench surface somewhere else. It started life as a bespoke but ugly kitchen unit on the upper floor of the house when I bought it. It made a good work bench as I progressed through the floors, finally ending up in the pin room... it's swan-song will be to support the skirtings while I paint them, then it will be skipped.

    Yes, the ceiling is drywalled, which holds the rockwoll insulation in place. That room is part of the extension to the house, so just one storey... it can get down to -25c here, so reducing heat loss is important

    Certainly looking forwards to seeing that ceiling finished off! It's been a long wait!!

    This was my choice between a NIB GNR or a used Metallica as My first-ever pin - delivered by the awesome guys at Great American Pinball. Turned a spare bedroom into a game room. Not too bad for a newbie. Loving My LZ premium so far - awesome fast paced game.
