Hey Guys. Been a long time since I posted my game room here. Alas, my game room (https://www.aaarpinball.com/GameRoom/GameRoom.htm) is no more as I'm moving. But I'm getting my new basement setup, so I'd like to ask...
Looking for input for ceiling of finished basement for game room... I'm moving away from drop ceiling to real ceiling. What do you prefer:
1) Basement ceiling is about 7' 9" across the entire room. Classic ceiling
2) Basement ceiling is ~ 8' 3" in some places, 7' 9" in other places. Notably a beam across the center of the room would go down to 7' 9" and effectively divide the ceiling, as well as some other places where the ceiling would need to go down for duct work, etc.
In short, totally "flat" ceiling that's a bit lower or a ceiling that changes height here and there, giving you some extra height here and there?
Teardown of original game room in progresss...
Tough decision. I’m in the process of remodeling my basement gameroom and opted to frame around the center beam and ductwork so I could have a higher ceiling in most of the room.
I was able to extended some of the ductwork so it would all be within a single frame around the center beam. If I had to make multiple boxes, I would probably have gone a different route.

It's been a while since I posted pictures of my game room, and I think the last time I did, it wasn't fully decorated. I still need some more stuff for the walls, but this is pretty good for now.

Nice space! I really like the red wall with the black ceiling
Quoted from JoeJet:
A+ for ingenuity and creativity but could you explain why you would do this?? Lol.
If you need more distance I get that but how does that screen not move and become a distraction even on a calm day?
It looks like there are pvc posts under the water for the rig to attach to.
I bought 1 more game than I have room for. Now that I can’t fit them all in a row, I had to choose between selling a game and doing some rearranging.
I didn’t think I would like it, but it’s kinda cool with the Playchoice-10 in the middle. Plus the kids can reach the power button on Star Wars now.
Quoted from Coolpinballdino:
Never posted in this thread but I took a video of my game Room decided to share first video is the basement. Second Video is the game room I set up at my dad's shop.
I didn’t see how many games you had before watching that video. They just keep going and going and going.
Very nice collection! Love the 3 Jurassic Park games next to each other.
