    I used under-cab lighting from Judge-dreads-pinball on e-bay for White Water. Also bought his playfield light mods for WH2O as well. I was very pleased with his mods and there was no problem receiving them from Great Britain. I bought a 5 meter roll of RGB LED strip from Cointaker and cut it into five pieces about 3 feet long for five different WPC games. I also bought the receiver and controller for each section to be able to adjust color and fade to suit my taste and cranked it up a little bit for league night. I bought some cheap no-solder connectors also on e-bay to connect the strips to the receiver and some molex connectors to connect the receiver to a 12 volt and ground to the J6 pins (if I remember correctly) on the coin interface board. This was much cheaper than buying 5 individual kits. I believe the 5 meter rolls can be purchased directly from the manufacturers in china through aliexpress.com for around $50 U.S.

    Looks like you have room for one more too!!!

    Quoted from balloukevin:

    With 3, that leaves room on either side to stand for maintenance. And 3 is enough to maintain!

    I know what you mean. I have 14 and always have something to do on them.

    Quoted from pinballsmith:

    I'm in the process of picking out an Amish-made shed/garage from a company in Lancaster PA.

    What's the name of the company? Do they have a website?

    #1368 6 years ago
    Quoted from SilverUnicorn:

    There are several. Just Google "Amish built Shed"

    I'll try to google amish shed

    Quoted from rotordave:

    I just finished wiring up my new gamesroom yesterday.

    Except the floor sockets, they have to wait till the carpet goes down.

    Should fit 100 in here according to my drawings.


    How many dilithium crystals will it take to power that gameroom?

    #1464 6 years ago

    Holy moly.

    Nice gameroom. I would suggest getting some curtains to prevent fade.

    What type of pop/beer fridge is that? I have been looking for something to accommodate both beer and pop because my minifridge is too small.

    Nice looking game room Max. Your layout is similar to mine. I would like to have a ball bowler too, but the TV area would probably have to go.

    You may consider black light LED strips like what are used on undercab lighting kits.

    #2123 5 years ago
    Quoted from Fast-Ed:

    Mine has black lights on the ceiling. Ed

    Black lights and a juke box to play Pink Floyd. You only need one more thing. What?

    Have your daughter set up outside of a medical marijuana store. I saw an article that said one enterprising young lady sold a couple of hundred cases in a couple of hours.

    Quoted from jrockne:

    Just curious, how many machine do you guys run on one 15amp or 20amp circuit?

    Generally, games with incandescent lights will pull about 2 amps each. Not sure how much less the LED games pull.

    Kinda hard to see, but we got red brick paneling from Menards to use on 2 walls and hung the "PINBALL ALLEY" sign there.... have gotten many compliments on the brick...

    Don, you should show your whole gameroom, including your home-made mad scientist set up.

    Pbtilter. Make sure that you put some footies or sliders under those pinball legs. You don't want to scratch up that nice floor

    Looks like a Crystal Peak set-up without the blast door!

    All these gamerooms with black light carpeting look great. However, that isn't an option for me right now. Anyone know where to get black light curtains?

    The penalty box is where the kids have to go when they misbehave, right?

    For us guys and gals looking for ways to add space to our gaming area, I think that it's best to take baby steps. Kudos to kermit24 and rdoyle1978 for doing just that!

    Bowtech, That’s a lot of light coming in to fade your games. It’s a great looking gameroom. I just moved out of lambertville. I’ll have to get you over when my gameroom is finished. Howie

    Gotta watch for cabinet fade with all of that sunlight coming in.

    #11256 1 year ago

    Blitz, Make sure that you have plenty of support for your elevated gameroom. Most wood framed, elevated floors aren’t designed for all of the extra weight of a pinball collection, not to mention a bunch of gameroom players. In my last house, I added about 8 columns that I purchased from Lowe’s.

    You’ve come a long way Don.

    #11480 1 year ago

    I hope that you have beefed up the floor support system to account for the added weight of all your games.

    You should plan for all of the games you’ll add to your collection in the future.
