    Quoted from Reality_Studio:

    My game room is still a work in progress. Got a few pins setup on the first isle to show off my tiny collection. Looks decent I guess, not the best collection but gotta start somewhere. Ok...that's not mine, but I was at the arcade expo in Banning, CA yesterday and just had to show one of the pics I took, my jaw dropped at that place, and that's just one isle of many not to mention them have a separate arcade room! Was definitely in heaven


    One can only dream!!!!!

    My low budget man cave. No bling, no fancy nothing. Ok actually I just pulled out my Bally games that were in storage for over 10 years.
    Did a mock setup to see what it will look like when I redo the room this year. Most of them were bought as projects and haven't been touched except for the Xenon I recently got from jkashani.

    Quoted from Deaconblooze:

    Looks pretty good to me!! Love the floor

    Thanks. But the Bally's are dirty. Have lot of work to do on them.

    Quoted from amkoepfer:

    Next set of pics. Coming along nicely but slowly. I am wiring 5 20 amp circuits, power every 3-4 feet in some places. A ton of work but itll be worth it!


    We are all crazy, sick, sick, sick people. What we do for are pins.
    Rooms going to look nice once you are done.

    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Yeah aint it great. But we sure do spread a lot of joy.

    Amen to that buddy!

    Funny, I only wanted to get my 5 favorite pins that I played growing up. WTF happened after that I don't know?

    Quoted from jrockne:

    I'm putting an offer in on a house tomorrow, and the wife says I can do whatever I want with the basement... If we get it, it has a 19'x13' room, a 10'x11',and a 20'x25' main area... Too bad at the current prices it will take me the rest of my life to fill it with pins!
    The down side is it's not a walkout, and the stairs will be tricky...

    Same exact measurements as my house. It's bi-level. The 19x13 was a garage but I closed it off for my work room and runoff pins. 20x25 is my game room and 10 x11 is storage. I also have a 12x24 addition for more pins.

    Quoted from StylesBitchly:

    Ya, I had a sewage adventure myself years ago!
    My washer was draining into a riser pipe attached to the basement wall. But our city sewage system at the time was inadequate to handle large rain storms. It would back up and over flow out that riser. Well, we had a torrential down pour one day and I ran down the basement to watch it. And sure enough, it started over flowing! So I pulled out the washer drain hose and started stuffing rags into the PVC pipe to plug it, and SNAP! The f-ing thing broke off at the elbow. Now I'm trying to hold it back with my hands and turds are bouncing off me! Tampons and fecies and who knows what else floating around an inch deep in my basement before I stopped it! I managed to duck tape the PVC back in place and stop it before it flooded my whole basement! After that, I had a check valve installed. I later moved. Of course, the city fixed the sewer system after I moved.

    Had that happen to me twice at my old house. First time it came up through a floor drain in the basement. I came home from work and the whole basement was about an inch or two of shit swamp water. I sealed off the drain but we also had a full bathroom in the basement so next time it came up the tub. I was running 5 gal buckets up the stairs trying to keep up with it, God I hope I never go through that again.

    Been a while since I posted here. Classic Bally row moved out to the sun room and a few more DMDs made the there way to the gam room. Had my first party in about 6 months. 24 people over.

    Quoted from radium:

    But why is that guy flipping you the bird?
    And what’s up with that Flash Gordon end table?!

    Flash Gordon still needs some work. Along with several others.

    Quoted from Zablon:

    Do all of you with these huge collections have electricians come in and rewire?

    Nope. But I can only turn half my games on at a time. Need to more wiring soon.

    Final line up change to the main gameroom. All games working with just a few little bugs to work out yet in 3 games.

    Quoted from yzfguy:

    "Final" LMAO!

    Quoted from goingincirclez:

    Final? Not until you get a Fathom to match that floor!

    I didn't say infinite final rearrange just final for now. (at least 3 months)

    Quoted from Gritty:

    What happened to all your Classic Ballys?

    Still have them. Just moved to other rooms. I have about 12 set up and the rest are broken down for now. Still have a few more years until I can extend the addition on the back of the house to hold all my classics. Right now it's 12 x 24. I want to make it 24 x 32. This will give me enough room to set up everything.

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    There will always be 3 games with a few bugs in them...fix the first few and bugs will turn up in three of the others.

    Always true. Was chasing my tail on my Funhouse for a year. Every time I fixed one thing something else would happen. It's been rock solid now for 6 months. I also do a once a month pin party with tournament for my friends and people in our local league so they do get pretty good play on those days.

    Quoted from vwallat99:

    Started framing out new walls in my storage room. Gonna knock down a wall in my basement and make the gameroom bigger... Need more shit. This hobby never ends! Lol more pictures to come later
    [quoted image]

    You should really seal the block wall with Kiltz or some other sealer to prevent moisture and mold.

    Quoted from shirkle:

    Someday I’ll finish this basement...
    Anyone have any idea why I have a concrete wall jutting out into this one space (see pictures). [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    What’s directly above the 4x4? It looks like it’s nailed into the subfloor. WTF????

    Quoted from dudah:

    I moved into my house one year ago (check my post history on this thread) with 5 games, now I've got 11.
    Safe to say, the basement is pretty much at capacity.
    I have a few project games in the garage and some plans to make some little arcade cabinets, so we will see how it will evolve!
    The attached pinball workshop is currently organized chaos - I know where everything is, but it looks like shit.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    Thank god you weren't naked when taking the pictures.

    Quoted from imagamejunky:

    Just wanted to share..
    I ran out of space in gameroom #1 so now I have gameroom #2. Who needs a formal dining room when you can have a formal JJP room instead right??
    Plus as it turned out the hanging light has a little "pirate" look to it anyway.
    And yes, I normally keep the sunlight off of the games.
    [quoted image][quoted image]

    No one eats in a formal dining room anyway.
    PS. Be sure to put UV protecting film on that big window.

    Quoted from 3pinballs:

    I have to shoot some pics of mine one of these days, but my basement isn't finished like a lot of you guys and have to say a lot of these game rooms are very, very impressive!

    22 pins is very impressive also!

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    I'm sure I'm not the first to think this, but these recent posts made something pop in my head. If you have a game room with a nice pool table like this, well then, does at least one of your pins have to have a pool/billiards theme to go with it?
    If I had room, I'd love to have a pool table with an EBD next to it.

    My buddy had his gameroom set up just like that. A row of pins on one side and a pool table with an EBD sitting beside it on the other side of the room. Ended up selling the EBD. Now wants to sell his pool table. Anyone want to buy a pool table in the York Pa area let me know. It’s a coin-op barroom table.
