    Here's some semi-recent pics of my gameroom (which I can't upload to my profile for some reason...its erroring)

    And yes, thats a 36' long real bowling alley

    Quoted from Pugsley:

    Candlestick bowling... and it looks like manual pin setting via pull cord?

    Yes, I tried to get an auto setter, but I was about 18" too low on the ceiling. Resorted to a string setter (pully system makes it easy) and an automatic ball return (gravity fed)

    Thanks it has taken me YEARS of pin trading and cash e.t.c. to get the collection I have now.

    Latest lineup as of this past weekend Now if I can get something finalized with the Nucore SWEP1 + RFM playfield, it will change again (would like to replace it with ACDC)

    I wanted a ball bowler, but they won't fit through the bulkhead.....so I decided to build a real bowling alley....40 ft total, 30 ft from foul line to head pin...so its half length. Ball return and a cable pin setter. Real Brunswick alley and I use candlepins since I am in northern New England

    #1990 5 years ago
    Quoted from IndianaPwns:

    Here's mine...although it's less of a game room and more of a study with a game in it...Haha

    That's a damn good game to have in a study

    Here's a disaster picture of my gameroom from this past week......had some water issues this winter and I found out why (never had a drop before). You can see RCT on the right (2nd pic) and the Rush 2049's in the background (also 2nd pic). Thats the bowling alley with all the stuff on it

    Here's my new game room....they break ground tomorrow
    (trees have been cut down and the shed debris removed already)

    #2972 4 years ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Start a topic so we can follow the build. What size?

    Once they get a few things going, I'll start its own update thread.....its going to be 28' x 36' with a 1/2 bath, small wet bar/kitchenette - both in the front corner, then the rest all open space (stairs go up and down in the 'also being built' mudroom so they don't take up space up there). 15' cathedral ceilings, 8' walls so there's no height issues. Having a ton of power up there so none of the old Bally/Williams games reset with voltage drops. I've attached a sneak peek of my planned layout (for now). We added extra width so it could accommodate the bowling alley


    #2976 4 years ago
    Quoted from MadPole:

    Hokey Smokes.
    That's going to be sweet.

    Thanks....been waiting a long time. I wish it had the look of yours though......the blacklights make a room so much more arcade-like and it looks cool. Budget kept me from doing any of that

    Quoted from noitbe1:

    This collection looks poor comparing with others but i don't have a lot of room at home

    Quality, not quantity..... a room filled with a LW3's, XFiles, Raven, Waterworld, SMB mini, Hurricane, Teed Off, Barb Wire, SWT, SWEp1, HRC, APowers, and RCT is way < than a room with your four machines

    #3055 4 years ago
    Quoted from Taygeta:

    You lose the privilege to have such a stance with an IJ4 and Gilligan's Island around.

    I never said my collection was top notch ....and I love GI

    #3058 4 years ago
    Quoted from dothedoo:

    I like GI too....and I like Barb Wire. You got a lot of dogs in that list for sure, but if it were me I would take Barb Wire out and put in Rescue 911.

    I like both of those games (especially 911)..... XFiles, not so much

    Quoted from beatmaster:

    this is what i did today.
    took the brick wall panels out of the sun room (no more spa) and made a little corner for my restored playboy in my gameroom... i think it fits well with the theme.
    here's a before and after.

    Looks great...love the brick!

    Linked Rush the Rock Racer games w/ upgraded with LCD monitors

    Was there any kit you needed to use or an adapter? One of my monitors is starting to go on my Rush's and would eventually like to replace with LCD

    Finally got the bowling alley completed in the game room (and of course I forgot to turn on all the lights for the pictures)

    Quoted from surfinvet:

    Hi Everyone!
    Newer to the hobby compared to most if you on here but have it bad for pinball!
    Great pics of all the gamerooms! I noticed several of you on this post are in Southern California. I've been looking for people to maybe have a league night or possibly join a group. If you can help me scratch that itch without buying more pins I'd be very grateful as I've run out of room!

    love your wall art

    Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

    We came to the agreement that I get entire reign over the basement and she can have the rest of the house

    I took that deal when we bought our house 11 yrs ago ..... up until this past fall (when the new game room was built), it was not a good deal for me. The basement was crowded, dark and dingy and getting games in and out was a chore.

    Quoted from philwojo:

    Man I wish I knew what the secret was to having 10+ machines and most of them being new stuff!!

    Get a second job...... I worked Friday night and weekends at a restaurant (software engineer on the weekdays) for over a year and used that extra money to pay off loans and buy pinball machines. Then I used stock options from my full time job to get even more games. Then I used 50% of my bonuses to get games (the other half went to payoff student loans and such). End result is I only have a med sized mortgage, no credit card debit, no student loans, and a room full of games. Kind of a balance between being responsible and still having some extra fun

    Of course adding my game room house expansion put a kabosh on getting even more games and paying off the rest of the house (though I didn't take out a loan to build it)

    It's been a while since I posted pics..... done some game changes (and took out the bowling alley)...more room now. Snuck in a pic of the Vanilla Ice bathroom and the Billy Dee Williams mini-kitchen

    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Looking good. Hows the new gr and garage holding up, this is it's first winter isn't it?

    Third winter..... with the mudroom between the house and the garage/game room, its much warmer overall (nice buffer). Everything is holding up nicely though the carpet has a few wrinkles in it from moving games. Heating has not been crazy expensive either. Most of the time, my kids are up there watching dumb Disney shows or playing Wii U

    #8190 2 years ago
    Quoted from cait001:

    What's with all the Vanilla Ice?
    Cool looking Battlezone chasis mounted on the wall.

    I did it because its dumb .... I wanted a theme in the bathroom that wasn't arcade related.... Vanilla Ice made sense so I picked up a bunch of crap off ebay. I did see him in concert last December at a I Love the 90's show. Even the hand soap is vanilla scent.

    #8202 2 years ago
    Quoted from PW79:

    A Vanilla Ice bathroom...
    Thats so F'n dope & weird

    A couple more pics...including the classic Vanilla Ice Rap Game! My wife thinks I'm nuts...and I kind of agree

    Rearranged the game room. With the bowling alley gone, I moved the island of pins to the side wall. It now is more of an open feel and better for parties, game nights, and tournaments ...and yes that's the Red Sox at the Yankees on all of the tv's (no football on when I took the picture)

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    Great game, but you need to slide that in the middle of a row to try to hide the cabinet fade.

    I need to shop it out before sliding it in..... there's an empty space behind it out of view (between Avatar and Jackbot)

    Quoted from chalkup8:

    Nice one Max,you've certainly enjoyed the hobby for a long time.Your screen name is one of the first I remember from the rgp days when i lurked there.
    I noticed you've let some games go that you'd like to have back. For me,I'd like a nice Harlem globe trotters back.

    I am 19 yrs and counting for pinball ....... started after college. I do miss the old RGP days and the craziness that came with it. I dumped Addams years ago to pick up an ACDC Luci, but I'd love to get a decent one back again. Was ready to pull the trigger but my old Indiana Jones fell into my lap (it was the first game I bought back in 1999 ...the same exact machine). Couldn't pass that up, so again I wait for an Addams

    My game room will be on the news tonight at 7pm WMUR ABC 9 (posted online after). Not sure how much coverage I will get in the segment but they were there for over 2.5hrs.

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Just checked the website..I couldn’t find a link to play the story. Looks like just a photo and teaser paragraph

    It's not up yet .... looks like it takes a day for them to upload it. I got a couple minutes showing the game room and me looking like a fool with his toys LOL. Too bad BK3 wasn't out when they filmed back in early March. My Vanilla Ice themed bathroom got on the segment

    #13267 61 days ago
    Quoted from Tommy-dog:

    He is entering his initials for grand champion high score after he just had the game of his life.

    I can't even come close to my high score ... was a complete fluke game that I had. I think I am entering my initials in that picture, but you'll see me playing when the video gets published online.
