Picts of my garage / game room. It's 2 of 3 bays of our garage.
Pinwizkid... Thanks! I do like many others. I'm just out of space 21 is my max.
7 light switches turn on 3 games at a time. All plugs were elevated 3' off the ground to hide power codes behind the games.
I've added 8 lighted & neon signs since these picts.
IMO: The white trim on the door looks out of place. Even a "Hammered" grey or black paint, on the trim would be a cool & easy.
I'm in California... 2 bays of my 3 car garage is my game room (carpeted and paintable wallpaper from Lowes).
MrBellMan... those games look awesome!
I'm actually very excited to play some late 70's to early/mid 80's games at Pin-a-go-go.
My feelings are... Pinball is like boating (sail boats, jet ski's, speed boats, cabin cruisers etc) it's all great fun, just being on the water, then pulling up to the BBQ & beer garden, at the end of the day!
I'm really digging the concrete flooring!
Can't wait to see the walls come together. Awesome game room!
I have 21 pins in my game room. I had my electrician wire up 3 games per switch on the wall (7 light switches). I've never had an issues. I've had all 21 games on playing at the same time, again, no issues.
Plus (I coil the extra power cord). It's a real clean look. Here's a couple picts.
Tatman9999... awesome game room!
Question; where did you get the slimer plunger rod on GB? That's cool!
Hello Pisiders... I really enjoy my game room. Not only for the pins... but the feeling I get when I'm in it. I wanted to share some picts that I have of the colors / flavors / custom signs (neon & wood) and custom clocks I've made or have had made;
Quoted from KingBW:
Did you make that? If so, I'll PM you for details to see if it is like what I plan to do or see if you have a better solution.
Blimpy (Swap Box) here on Pinside made it for me. It was actually a little larger than normal size (I understand), as the glass / art was sent to me and signed by Jersey Jack himself (upper left corner).
I did however paint it emerald green, with very fine green glitter, with 3 coats of clear coat. Same for the (3) picture WOZ frames on both sides of it.
I had made the (2) FunHouse signs years ago. One for me and the other for my son. However, his garage has much lower ceiling and it didn't fit well. So, I installed both in my game garage / game room. My ceiling is nearly 10', so easy to place them.
Sorry, not for sale.
Thanks for the kind words.
Hello tatman9999 and bowtech...
Interesting that both you have the same 3-D "Arcade" sign on the wall. That's really nice! Where did you get it?
Thanks swillie... after I posted that question; I Googled "lighted Arcade sign" and found several sources. They ranged in price from about $48 to $60+.
We do have Hobby Lobby here, about 15 miles from me. I'll check them as well.
My opinion: Stars are way too loud, and circles are too subtle... however "if" those were the only choices, i'd go with circles.
imagamejunky... looks great!
IMO: a heavy "Theater type curtain" (2 brackets and rod) would look amazing behind them. It would camouflage the mirror and speaker / power cords, then allow you to focus on the beauty of the games.
BTW: You've get them spaced too far apart... you'll need to fix that
