    Quoted from mojozone:

    Here is my updated gameroom.

    what is that machine on the right side of the room (between the stools)?

    #1491 6 years ago

    Wish the space was bigger... but this is our game hole!

    Quoted from Captive_Ball:

    Bigger then what I have to work with....That dartboard closet is fantastic! Great idea

    Thanks. It was an easy build. I framed out (what was) a hollow storage space beneath the steps... then took those furring strips and finished it off. The height and depth are purely driven by the steps. Ideally the board would have been set back a few more feet and maybe about 10" higher. But, I wasn't about to move the steps! I had an old track light strip with heads and replaced the utility light that was in there... got 2 PAR30 red bulbs and one white one... gave it a nice warmth. To tie it all up, I painted the concrete. It really ended up being a very inexpensive projector, all things considered.

    Quoted from Gov:

    Same here, I would kill for a space that size and that nice

    Please don't take my comment the wrong way... Probably didn't word that too well. I wish I had another 10 ft to work with... some of these massive game rooms are just incredible.

    Quoted from The_Director:

    Very nice space! I love the wall mount. What did you use to support it? I've got a big AMI/Rowe R-90, but would love a wall mount tied into some smaller speakers to save some floor space.

    It is mounted with a mounting bracket right into the studs... along with some heavy-weight drywall mounting hardware. It took 4 guys to get that thing up there. It's heavy, but the wall supports it.

    You know, you're not too far away from Maryland. There is a guy in Hagerstown that is a coin-op picker. I didn't buy this one from him (but he recently had one for sale)... he has loads of wall mount juke boxes. I think he generally sells them for $250-$400. I bought from a guy in NYC and shipping was a heavy on the wallet. Wish I had know about this guy. PM me if you want his info. He's a legit operation.

    Quoted from The_Director:

    Yeah, I've been up to Lloyd's before Stopped by on the way back from a business trip in PA and always keep up with him on FB. I don't know where he finds all that stuff!

    I wish I knew too... did you see that MM he posted last week? He's also had a few WC Soccers in the last few months.

    I talked with an operator for a while out in DE on the boardwalk... he said he's sold almost all of his pins (warehouse full) to Lloyd over the years. He added that he couldn't believe what pins fetch these days. made him laugh

    Quoted from Fulltilt:

    Some new pics of the "Mini-cade" after adding/removing a game or two.

    Nice. You know what you are missing? A super chexx would look great right in the middle of that room!

    Quoted from HK-Steve:

    Great thread Guy's,
    plus lots of nice rooms, I am in envy of how many pins and games some of you have.
    My room is our living room, with my Home Theater (first hobby)
    Only have 1 pin so far, but as you all know, you can't just have 1 pin.
    So I am on the lookout for the No.2 and maybe No.3 if possible.
    My HT room also has an Air Hockey table,
    on the terrace we have a Pool Table, and Table Tennis also.
    HT has a 2.5m wide screen with a Marquee 9500 CRT projetor with 5 channels of Martin Logan Electrostatic speakers, M&K sub-woofer. Plus lots of other equipment.

    Man...if that were my setup, I'd have one of those couches dead center to get an exact CLP for those Martin Logans!

    Nice room, Steve!

    Quoted from yzfguy:

    Bubble hockey =gone!

    Bubble hockey is aweseome...by far the most popular "thing" in our game room

    Have made some tweaks and additions to the game room... continuing with the hockey/pins/movie theme with hockey puck coasters, some classic Caps and Flyers photos, pinball fliers, and a few movie posts along the wall shared with the dedicated home theater...recently added in some original works of art on skate decks that I picked up from some artists....and just began phase two expansion into a storage/work room that was 1/4 work shop and 3/4 shelving and storage. With a little spring cleaning combined with some shelving reconfiguration, I can now fit 7 or 8 pins in there. I'm thinking this room will remain largely unfinished...I like the exposed beams, concrete floors, and string lights. Gives the room its own feel.

    The other side of the wall in the main game room is a space that's under a 3 season room on the first floor. Probably would never happen...but I'd love to build it out and cut a door through the exterior brick...would give me another 17X12 space. Otherwise, space is out.

    I know...I know... first world problems. But, we're all allowed to dream. Right?

    Anyhow, thought I would share and perhaps someone might take an idea or two...or have a suggestion or two!

    The sickness grows.

    Quoted from yzfguy:

    Looks awesome and I want that jukebox! I would think the hockey pucks would cause beer spills if drunks are putting drinks down not exactly on top of them, but they look cool.


    Yeah...the pucks work but are better in theory (they do require some precision placement)

    #6480 3 years ago
    Quoted from rollinover:

    what is that wooden game with the posts on it on the table? some kind of skill game?

    It's called Skittles. Made at Berea College. You wind a string around a top and launch it into the playfield through a launch slot. The top spins crazy fast and whips around the playfield, knocking down pins. The pins are worth different amount of points. The first two bays (left and right of the launch area) are worth -10. The next area of pins are all worth 5 points. The area after that is all worth 10 points... The back left and right bays are worth 50 points...and the back center bay is worth 100.

    You get 5 pulls... Each time resetting the pins. Add up your score at the end.

    There is some skill in how you wrap the string around the top, and your arm angle/ pull plane (which directs the top after the pull). The rest is just luck (if the table is level).

    Really fun to play with a group of friends. Most people far prefer it to pinball.

    It's a tricky game because the table needs to be level and very stable. I secured my game on a custom cut table with securing feet and extra strength Velcro... And the custom cut table is bolted into the wall. So, it's very stable after the initial pull of string/top. We found the legs that came with the game to be waaaay to rickety and loose (pins would fall over when you pulled the string to launch the top).

    Quoted from heni1977:

    Love the bubble hockey. Is that the Black Hawks in there! LOL

    Caps vs Philly

    Quoted from tdunbar:

    I graduated from Berea in 1981 so did you also attend school there?

    No, didn't go there. Have been playing skittles since the 1970's, tho! My granddad was an inventor and had wired a skittles game full of switches to register when pins were knocked down (on a scoring light board he created)...he had that rigged together in the late 70's... Many fond memories of playing it in his basement.

    My parents sold that game in a yard sale back in 1992. :-/. Sure wish it was the one I now own.

    Did you ever work on making one of these games while you were there??

    #6485 3 years ago
    Quoted from Bos98:

    There is so much more space but I am not allowed to enter the theater space or my sons play area which is huge on the other side

    That play area will open in due time )

    #6488 3 years ago

    Nice. How's that Ice Cold Beer? Fun?

    #6507 3 years ago
    Quoted from JeffA:

    A bit behind on the thread. Just saw this. Man, I loved that game. We had one as a kid. Wonder if my parents still have it. Will have to check.

    I need to scrap together a pin night... Or a skittles throw down!

    And with the table partly obscuring the side of that slap shot I thought it said that one thing on the side of it, made me do a double take.

    Here's the progression of my game room 3 weeks in to a full house renovation. And I'll absolutely be laying it out/mocking it up digitally.
    Edit: pics from bottom to top for progression.

    Did they film silence of the lambs in there??
