    First time poster. Here are some pics of the gameroom. A few more are on my webpage...

    I posted a few pictures a while back, but now I finally settled on a lighting scheme after a few years of tinkering. I use chrome bathroom light bars fitted with colored compact spiral fluorescents. The bulbs have an interesting shape and provide some mellow color. I found racks of these bathroom fixtures for $5 to $15 at Habitat for Humanity stores. There's a soffit running the length of the room and I found I could mount lights on the sides of the soffit without causing glare on any pinball playfield glass or backglass. Shorter people see a bit of glare at the top of the backglasses, but it's not too bad. Altogether I have three eight-bulb light bars on each side of the soffit for a total of 48 bulbs in red, yellow, green and blue. I don't know how to get decent pictures of the effect. In real life the color and shape of the bulbs are plainly visible and there's a neat alternating color effect down the center of the room. Yet the colors combine to light the games in a more even white. I like it.

    Quoted from Vic_Camp:

    How big is the space?
    It doesn't get much better than that. Great Room!
    Thanks for the view.

    It's about 800 sqft. More info here...

    Quoted from mbelofsky:

    My friend, John, showed me how to do this with smart plugs and Alexa. I think it is really cool.

    You're having the game of your life.

    You're kicking your buddy's ass.

    You're buddy says... "Alexa game off"

    A little bit of both... I did a drywall box around the center beam/duct and drop ceiling everywhere else. I have made several wiring and plumbing changes over the years. The drop ceiling made it all easy.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Yup. Put the blacklights under the pins. The closer they are to the ground, the more light they throw.

    Similar to what I did with my pub table...

    For the low-tech people who think a "laser" is something you put on the head of a shark, there's always the plywood and scroll saw method...
