gotta fit one more game in
Quoted from rotordave:
I had my Arcade room looking all nice and tidy for a big pinball meet yesterday (The Pukekohe IFPA Classic which I run every year) so I took the chance to make a video.
"DING DING DING" we have a winner! HOLY COW! This is the best arcade/game room ever! Nice job and congrats.
Im looking into creating a new game room in my backyard. I was thinking of something simple. I don't have a huge budget and my space is kinda limited in my backyard. I was thinking of getting one of those Tuff Sheds 24'X30' or buildling one similar and customizing it to not look like a shed. Anyone here have experience with this type of idea and size? I have 13 pins and 4 arcade games I'd like to have in the same room. Any feedback would be great. Thanks and love all your game rooms. Makes me jealous, wish I had a basement.
Quoted from Chosen_S:
Building one is always cheaper, a shed the size Paul just bought can be built with your hands for about 1/2 the cost... of course you need skill and tools. But that's typical of construction
Yeah....Im just using the shed idea as a reference. I have a contractor friend that said he's willing to help me with this project (I'd obviously pay him for his time). I'd need his expertise on the foundation, framing and electrical part. I'm experienced enough to do the rest and all the finish work. So now as im thinking through this, I might as well just build a room the size I need with a more permanent foundation instead of the prefabbed shed. I can sell it to my wife easier if its cheaper!
NO WAY!!! This is awesome. So killer! Thanks for sharing. You're my gameroom hero.
Once a year I setup all my games in the house for my annual Pinball Party. My collection keeps growing. This is my 4th year. Year 1 was one pin, a Gottlieb King Rock, which I no longer have. I still have 3 more to setup. Fun times
Quoted from aeneas:
First time I read about Gottlieb Nudge It. Didn't know it existed. Just looked it up on ipdb.
Is it any fun to play ? Is there a gameplay video online somewhere ?
There are 3 different modes you can put the game in. I think I have mine in mode 2. What that means is when your ball falls down the lane with the lighted target, it then goes into a mode that all the lights (in that lane) flash in sequence and you have to hit the stop button to land on the solid target light. Then it pays out tickets and the siren goes off. I think this video is in mode 1
Annual Pinball Party #4 was a success. 22 people showed up. I had 16 games setup in my house which included: Ghostbusters Pro, Aereosmith Pro, Elvira and the Party Monsters, Austin Powers, Taxi, Jokerz!, Phantom of the Opera. Em's: Gottlieb Sky Jump, El Dorado, Atlantis, Abra Ca Dabra, Buccaneer, Volly, Jack Open, Hit the Deck. Also Nudge It, Galaga, Donkey Kong and Fix it Felix . Now Im back down to only 7 pins in my game room. It was so much fun seeing everyone and hanging out. I think I need to build and new game room for all my pins. Merry Christmas everyone.
Here are some changes to my game room/rooms. I found a new Lenovo all in one touch screen computer 21.5" for $80 on CL. So I dedicated it to iScore....its awesome. The last photos is of the 3 EM's I have setup in the garage.
Here is my current line up for my game room. Its packed. I can only fit 7 pins in there. My EM games are in the garage along with 2 Taxis. But I really like my line up. I know to get something different I gotta give up one of these in the game room. So many great games out there.
Quoted from PaulCoff:
Work in progress.
10x12 shed. Added some trafficMASTER floors at a clearance price from “Home Do-over.”
PLEASE keep posting about your project. Ive been thinking of doing the same as you and want to see how it turns out and how many games you get in there.
Quoted from Spencer:
I don't know where it came from exactly. I was at a friends house to look at a pin, saw it and had to have it. It took a little back and forth and he agreed to let it go. The red sequin robe is over the top and the best part, I think.
Sooooo....how much you want for it?
