    Finally took a panoramic shot. No room for more than 4, so I compensate by overloading with artwork.

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    My new game room at my office, with a bit of variety. Cars, pins, slots.

    What I am looking at, and "office", does not compute. What kind of office is this?
    Amazing lineup, and yes, I admit the first thing I thought of was the potential for sun fade...

    Updated the art on my walls!
    picked up a great Zig Zag backglass, a Time Line backglass, NOS Pengo marquee, Mappy marquee, reproduction Marble Madness glass marquee (my only repro), my fave Bubble Bobble marquee, and my Genie and Space Riders playfields.
    Oh, and added Target Alpha! Not a long-term keeper, but definitely fun.

    Current state of my gameroom, Flash on

    Wow, what a stunning game room! I love the variety of games you have there.
    Late 70s, 90s, new stern, skeeball, air hockey, cocktail, driving game for 2, the 3 pins with video, etc. Congrats.

    Still my fav thread on here too.
    I just picked up a Robotron and rearranged a bit. First time ive put my widebodies together. Added a pic of the opposite wall which I haven't posted before.

    Epic gameroom. Love the facing Star Treks.
    and Gaplus? Nice touch. Noted.

    Cool looking Battlezone chasis mounted on the wall.

    Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

    Newest lineup. Need to stop messing with my machines and order some proper blinds! Will be hard to figure out which has to go to make room for TBL, luckily I have plenty of time

    Eeeeep that's a rough choice with such an all-killer no-filler lineup. I'd say one of the newer Sterns like Star Trek or Metallica since you'd always be able to get another one down the road.

    #8218 2 years ago
    Quoted from PeterG:

    Well you have a lot of time for that, but once you will have to choose, for me it's easy Iron Man would have to go....the rest are just epic machines.

    It depends on who comes in... Iron Man is such a great game for young new players to walk up to, especially if you have it set to easy for raising the first monger. Gives them a clear, concise and rewarding goal.

    A friend of mine has a pogo the clown original as well! That's bad-ass!

    ...you do realize he isn't a movie character, and actually raped and murdered 33 boys?
    Am I missing the appeal here?

    Ya ,i know.. seems f'd up that people patronize a murderer. Not sure why i think its bad ass to own. Just interesting subject matter i guess

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    Thank you. We all need to say this to ourselves EVERY day. My neighbor made a comment yesterday about how "some people" are under the poverty line but still have "a big screen tv and a smartphone". Where do we get with comments like this? We can be better than that. Consider yourselves fortunate.

    Large TVs can be had for super cheap on the 2nd hand market as people are always upgrading, and phones are indispensable for most communication in the modern world.
    People that chide those poorer than them can stuff it.

    Quoted from just4fn:

    Here is my game room: What's nice about the game room is I have kept the cost down and that was my challenge. The big shot pinball- 100.00, Eight ball pinball- 400.00, Joust and Tempest together- 75.00, Pool table 400.00, Pachinko 25.00, all the signs and lighted beer signs about 25.00, Barista Table was given to me, 43 inch TV 4k- 200.00. So for about 1275.00 I have a game room. How low can you go and still have a nice room???

    economical and lovely. Great job! And for the space you have, a perfect variety.

    Placeholder there for an upcoming Iron Maiden NIB?
    Also noooooo to the record player on the bottom shelf! Get that on a pad on the top.
    Quality lineup for a trio.

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    Game room walk thru in action, with a different crowd this past weekend. I smuggled in some Chicago pizza and beef for the occasion, and the local Coloradoans went wild on the flavor. Now I gotta go back and load up on it again.

    thanks for sharing, what an amazing room!

    #10256 1 year ago
    Quoted from DUFUS:

    New ceiling decor added.

    growing up, my old brother had posters hung from his ceiling like that. Was awesome until one night he saw the spiders coming down from them. Apparently it makes a great place to nest.

    one thing I love about this thread is seeing the newest machines slowly trickle into collections

    #11505 1 year ago
    Quoted from ZNET:

    It's been 2 years since I posted photos of my suburban New Jersey basement gameroom. Below are a few current photos. The room is still a purely utilitarian space: a hodgepodge of throw rugs, pedestrian florescent light fixtures and plain cinderblock walls. . .nothing fancy. The best feature is the extra high ceiling, which is needed to slide up the backbox doors on woodrails.
    The line-up has changed since my last post on this thread. However, my collection remains primarily EM pinball and arcades, with several prewar pinballs and trade stimulators included for variety. Not pictured are a few of the prewar games, trade stimulators, coke machines, a Namco Rockin' Bowl-O-Rama videogame and a Sega Lunar Rescue EM arcade. A large HO scale slot car track is on the "disassemble list" to make room for more machines.
    Recently, I found the vintage cigarette rack at an antique shop and had to have it. I enjoy seeing the creative gamerooms displayed on this thread, especially the ones that reflect the personality of the pinsider.

    wow, what a simply stunning room. Thank you for sharing! I think you have almost every prewar game I've ever wanted.
    What is that blue + orange prewar table?

    Almost surprised to see no bingos though. Not a fan?

    Quoted from Rondogg:

    I have never seen anything like this. Forget the $$, who has the time to even put something like this together?

    Well he and his partner have backgrounds in the arcade industry and quite the passion, so that certainly helps. Check his videos where he does full teardowns of race driving games and builds them back piece by piece to his "museum quality" and you'll see he's no spring chicken just flaunting cash, but a hardcore collector who happens to have arrived at the means while also having the skill and dedication.
    Like, imagine if John's Arcade guy made it lucky with some stock options and was able to do his thing all day every day?

    Sadly his rampant devotion seems to have also resulted in a heart attack, so I hope he slows down a bunch and really savours what he has accomplished.

    this is a part of the hobby I've never understood. I've seen a bunch of arcade/pinball people with life size replicas of movie characters all over. There needs to be a thread for people to share their real-sized dolls.
    There's even a new arcade opening in Ontario that advertises like 20+ lifesized characters.

    I have a rather small downtown house with only a small back storage room to work with. Space constraints pushed me towards exploring things beyond pinball machines, like the artwork and other coinop machines.

    It's pretty tight in there. (just under 200 sq ft for the game area)

    Quoted from RWH:

    Hell can't be that small with all that stuff in there! I like the pachinko machines. The first two are they pachislo or pachinko

    I think its about 9.5'x20'. just under 200 sq ft
    First two machines are pachinkos, specifically of the arepachi and hanemono varieties.

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    Hey there’s a blank space on the wall below the Tempest sign!

    got any cabaret-sized marquees for sale?
    There is also space above the Triple Strike but I have a Astro Blaster marquee to go there, and maybe an old Meteor backglass to accompany the Pin*Bot... 63 marquees in total, only one is a reproduction.

    Quoted from Roostking:

    with your creativity, if you won the lottery, you would put together an epic game room!! Well done!!

    thanks, I really love the variety of continents and decades represented.
    Funny thing is, my collection is probably worth less than what other people here have spent on 2 NIB Jersey Jack machines. It just involved a lot of digging, networking, and help from many other pinheads across Canada and America.

    That ranma pachinko is neat. Any video of it working?

    noiseless and space saving pinball fun, only possible with prewars

    We have a haunted house and I bought damn near every horror themed pinball and added it to the exit of our haunt. So you have horror themed pins surrounded by monsters, autographs, and so much more. Check it out. If you're ever in St Louis stop by... these pinballs are only avail to play in September, October and early November. After that they sit there doing nothing, other than we open for one day for Christmas, Valentines and one special event in March. Yeah they just sit there year around.

    is there a good place to learn about the history of the American Haunted House phenomenon? I'm assuming it's a predominantly American thing, right? (like, the big ones)
