    The game room is completely a mess right now because we have acquired a few too many pins recently and they take up almost every square inch of room. We'll have to do some shuffling soon, but I hope to share a few pictures of our setup in the coming weeks.

    Quoted from Vino:

    Those with space, anyone add bubble hockey to their game room?

    Bubble hockey is one of my favorite games. It does take up a bit of room but it is an awesome game and anyone can play it.

    Quoted from PW79:

    Those decals are like $400 it appears. Damn

    Or instead of buying them, you can use your rather large magnifying glass and paint them yourself like some kind of 40 year old virgin.

    The stained concrete looks awesome. If you're playing for a long time out there, you could get some of those anti-fatigue mats and place them in front of the games. That with some bar stools...

    Nice, I like the new addition.

    LOVE that juke box!

    I was going to post the same thing. Not enough juke boxes here.

    Haha that's funny because I am actually not a huge fan of MET. Not sure why, maybe the art package, the theme, the ruleset...? It just never did anything for me personally.

    I agree it's too many for the room.

    Blasphemy!! You can never have too many.

    Huge Rush Fan.

    Next Stern pin confirmed.

    Quoted from presqueisle:

    Added a couple and had to rearrange a bit. Still can take the pf glasses off, so not too bad. Filled up though

    I love the pitch and bat! Really awesome.

    I also like the solitary chair in front of the TV. It screams "Damnit woman! Don't you know this is my only escape in this world?! Leave me be."

    Lots of time and work went into our game room (garage), and we love it. We're still amazed at our own ingenuity to get everything to fit and have room to walk around comfortably. It's climate controlled (see AC unit in upper left corner, insulation sheets on garage doors, and jimmy rigged fan), stocked with beer, and even includes Bose 3-2-1 speaker system. A truly great place to enjoy an evening or weekend.

    (Sorry about some of the pictures, they came out a little blurry. I had to compress some of them to attach them here, and add artificial exposure because the room was kind of dark. But you get the idea.)

    Thanks everyone.

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    And the high scores on the Pepsi board nice touch

    Thanks! Of course for privacy issues I blocked out the names. We recently moved some games around too, so those score boards will need to be adjusted to reflect what's currently playable in the garage.

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Even have pins under pins. Nice

    As for the pins under pins, the long term plan is to some day get a house with a detached building to house all of them in. Or a bigger house with a larger game room. Right now there are 4 pins under the DMD row, and 4 under the Williams row. Just don't have enough space....yet.

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    I see you got the smart ball skeeball game

    The skeeball is actually one of the bigger hits of the game room. The casual person will plunge the ball a few times on a pin and move on in a few minutes. However, the skeeball will be played all night. We will print out brackets, draw names, and play tournaments. Last Christmas, we played well into 3:00am. My highest score is a 410, the perfect score being a 450 (9 balls, highest possible score on one ball is 50 points). This is probably my proudest record. I have been soooo close to a perfect game a few times, but always just miss that one ball.

    Nice Smart-Ball. I finally scored a perfect 450 on mine a few days ago.

    Quoted from wolv3:

    This is my mock set up I'm working towards. The pin on the bottom right may need to go if it's too tight.

    If the spacing is tight, you can bring one game forward slightly, and push another game back further to where the heads overlap each other. If the heads are butted up to each other flush, then there is space between the games. You can take advantage of this space by overlapping the heads a little bit. (Hopefully that made sense.)

    but the natural light is what I love!

    Your cabinets are all faded...

    Only joking, I love your game rooms. They are simply amazing.

    Recent picture before some of my younger cousins turn up for a pinfest weekend (Congo's at the far end, beyond TWD, feeling very neglected... sad Amy).

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    That is the neatest, most best cable-hidden setup I have ever seen.

    Plot twist: the TV isn't actually hooked up to anything, it's just sitting on the wall mount, not plugged in at all.

    Quoted from Only68s:

    My gameroom always stays a breezy 105*

    Insulate the garage door and it will drop the temperature by 20°. I used two layers of the foam board insulation with the aluminum facer and it made a huge difference.

    You could also install a mini split air conditioner. It basically adds another room to your house.
