    // Error: Image 112428 not found //

    Quoted from SteveFury:Everyone has some great points about tile versus wood flooring. One thing rarely considered is the way flooring dramatically effects the acoustics of a room.
    Me, personally I prefer tile to be in certain areas such as kitchens and bathrooms because there's not a whole lot of noise sources a person would want to pay attention to. A dramatically contrasted example would be a tile floor in a home theater. In that case you have two or more sound sources which you definitely don't want multiple room reflections.
    I am not sure if a room full of pins in a highly acoustically reflective room would be versus a lesser one regarding someone who may be sensitive to the noise. I only have two pins and they are EM. If I had a choice in designing a game/entertainment room it would most surely have flooring of thick carpet and I'll do some kind of sound absorbing wall treatment. An acoustically "dead" room naturally sounds warmer and more inviting than its opposite.

    I'm with you on this one, you have to have some sound absorption in the room. With all the sounds of pins, music and people the room would sound like Grand Central Station and drive everyone crazy. My basement walls and ceiling are bare so I'm putting carpet down which should help some. // Error: Image 112428 not found //

    Quoted from Joshmx19:

    Nothing special just games

    Nothing like a dark room with nothing to light it with but pins.

    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.

    You have got to be kidding me.

    Quoted from Gov:

    Well....my tiny space really pales in comparison to most here, but it is what I have to work with :-/ Maybe one of these days I can have an amazing space like some of you guys.
    My modest collection.....1 pin, 1 video, 1 sim racing rig
    I have been sim racing competitively for over 10 years now. It even led to me and my brother buying a SCCA racecar and racing for real. We have been doing that sparingly over the last few years. I also built my steering wheel interface and my hydraulic pedals.
    Sorry for the crappy panoramic picture, I don't have a cool iPhone

    LOVE IT!!! Can I drive?

    Quoted from BOBCADE:

    I documented my addition here on pinside (search pin room tips) and I'm finally ready to post a short video of my room. We haven't built the bar yet but it will replace the stereo rack and I plan to pull the couch out then and use 2 single loungers.
    Here's the vid
    » YouTube video
    One speaker is out of place because I was working on DESW (recent buy in bundle from ex-op)and forgot to move back before shooting.

    VERY nice. I'll bet the house rule is no pin playing while the movie is on

    Very nice and enough room to roam.

    Quoted from Guinnesstime:

    Limited space here, but the boys and I have The Man Cave set. (I have room for 2 more max without bumping into the living area on the other side. I'd like to finish the ceiling, but then I'd have to remove toppers if I ever got FT, WH2O, HS, etc, so I'm debating)

    Just paint the ceiling flat black, my room is like yours and that's what I'm gonna do.

    I've moved some pins around and decided to take a couple of pictures. This is the only one I liked. This angle allowed me to get all of my pins in one picture.

    (Some of you know, but there is a little trick going on here also...)

    It's all in the mirrors. Great idea.

    #1665 6 years ago

    Here's a pic. of my work in progress. You can barely make out 2 pins in the picture.

    Quoted from Pinballgeek:

    I prefer t3 although people give it bad rep
    T3 has a much deeper ruleset than t2
    More dot matrix animation
    Plus a RPG Backbox toy
    And still designed by Steve Richie who designed t2

    I just bought the HUO T3 that was for sale here on the forum Market Place. From video I liked what I saw and heard so I hope your right. That makes 10 for me and I'm full up.

    #1769 5 years ago

    Now that the pool table is sold (buyer picking up the rest of it tomorrow) all I have to do is move the water heater, add some electrical and carpet and the "Game Dungeon" will be ready for the games. This pic. is only about half the room. 8 pins will be along the back wall and the wall that the pool table is leaning on there will be a 6ft bar and 2 arcade games. On the opposite wall there will be 2 pins and a sit down driving game. Not pictured is a 10x12ft room that will have an 80in. 3D tv and the surround system. Half the fun of having your own game room is the planning and building of it.

    Quoted from Pinballgeek:

    Here are more pictures of the media room. I watched 3 movies in it yesterday since I was getting over a cold. Notice the anamorphic lens. Makes movies that much cooler when you get to watch them without the letterbox.
    Also its RGB rope lighting, but we paused it for the pictures. Wife is an interior designer and is updating her portfolio on Houzz that is why I had these lying around to post.

    Quoted from JeffZee:

    I posted a few pictures a while back, but now I finally settled on a lighting scheme after a few years of tinkering. I use chrome bathroom light bars fitted with colored compact spiral fluorescents. The bulbs have an interesting shape and provide some mellow color. I found racks of these bathroom fixtures for $5 to $15 at Habitat for Humanity stores. There's a soffit running the length of the room and I found I could mount lights on the sides of the soffit without causing glare on any pinball playfield glass or backglass. Shorter people see a bit of glare at the top of the backglasses, but it's not too bad. Altogether I have three eight-bulb light bars on each side of the soffit for a total of 48 bulbs in red, yellow, green and blue. I don't know how to get decent pictures of the effect. In real life the color and shape of the bulbs are plainly visible and there's a neat alternating color effect down the center of the room. Yet the colors combine to light the games in a more even white. I like it.

    14-01-04-07.JPG 231 KB

    That's a great Idea. Now if you put black light bulbs in that would be 480 watts per bar and with 6 bars that would be 2880 watts of black light. That room would really GLOW.

    Quoted from mario_1_up:

    I have to finish the ceiling and thought about putting some black lights in. Not a lot of them just enough to make the floor pop but not making everyone's teeth glow.

    Be prepared to get A LOT of them. My room is about 600sf and I have 12-15 watt (60 watt eq screw in bulbs which lights up the room nice when 10 of my games are on. But the bl has a hard time reaching under the games and it looked wanting so I put a 22in. bl tube light under each and now it looks like the games are "floating" on the bl carpet. It really looks cool. So that's a total of 22 bl bulbs at 15 watts each = 330 watts of bl for a 600 or so sq. ft. room without peoples teeth glowing. If you have a tall ceiling you would need half again that many. Don't even think about the regular incandecent bl bulbs, they generate way to much heat and, I think, don't give off very much bl and they use 60 watts of electricity.

    #2110 5 years ago

    My ceiling is unfinished and painted flat black above the games to prevent any glare on the pin glass and I have 6 of these fixtures (see Fixture1 pic) in the room, I'm thinking of adding 2 or 3 more. Fixture2 pic shows the 22in long bulb that is under each game. Total cost so far is about $200. If your ceiling is finished you might want to get the 4 or 8ft fixtures. You can get a good package deal on these on ebay. Are you going with bl carpet? I love it and so do my guests. I can refer you to the place I bought mine.

    I like the "look" you gave the room, makes it a nice place to "escape" to to have fun. I went with the same look, makes me feel like I'm at an Arcade not down by basement.

    Quoted from hlaj78:

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

    2 more things, the other one being a keg. Nothing like a good black light kegger.

    Nice row, I have 8 in my main line too. I have black light carpet also and found the bl doesn't reach under the games very well so I put a 22in. bl bulb under each game and it lights it so well it looks almost like the games are floating on the carpet. Looks like you have a good size room with a nice clear span.

    Just posted a quick video of the first party in my new room. We had nine pins, one vid and eight people. This was a trial run for many future parties which hopefully will be bigger. 2001 and Ms Pacman/Galaga not pictured. I will have a few more EMs in the room in the near future including Target Alpha and Volley.

    I play mine in the dark too. Looks like you could really use those 22in. bl lights under your games too. That would really make that carpet pop.

    Quoted from John_I:

    Yeah I have been planning to get some! I might move my main LED blacklight bar down low too.

    I'd keep it high, out of peoples way. I have mine screwed to the underside of each game, no way are people going to break them.

    #2154 5 years ago
    Quoted from jardine:

    My little getaway from wife and kids, even though my eldest (6yr old) is currently loving the mame setup.
    It's a single garage in my house. Gets bloody hot in the summer and nice and cold in the winter. No insulation makes for these types of room temps.
    The consoles that are with the TV are a NES, Segamega Drive and Xbox. It's cool that I can sit down and have a bash of these while my girls sit on the stools playing my mame. Good to share my obsession with them. Gives us something in common at such a young age.

    Quoted from GetTheJackpot:

    Just out of curiosity, do black lights have the same effects on game cabinet art as regular UV exposure over time?

    No, they are way to weak for that. The wrong wavelength (I think) also.

    I actually have three of them. This one is a bit of a...project. plan to sand it and respray. I bought it primarily for the parts but I cant bear to part it out. I managed to pick up a bunch of NOS stuff for these games while I could a few years ago. I just need some time to work on it.

    #2180 5 years ago
    Quoted from SteveFury:

    For me it's not only the games in a room- but the atmosphere the room creates.

    I didn't want my gr to look like the rest of the house that's why I went with the "arcade" look for my room....so it looks like I went somewhere to play.

    #2185 5 years ago
    Quoted from ThatGuy:

    Thanks! I just got my monitor working. It's beautiful to sit down and hear the Star Wars theme and all the fantastic sounds coming from the rear speakers.

    #2230 5 years ago
    Quoted from Jimmyd044:

    500sf small?? Your lucky I only have 200sf to work with.

    This is how you fill 550sf with 13 pins, 3 stand up arcades, 1 sit down driving game, 46in HDTV, surround sound system, 6ft bar and surprisingly have plenty of room left over for people to sit and walk around. Also black light carpet, playfields on the walls and ceiling and pin cab decals hung from the ceiling. Makes me feel like I left the house and went somewhere to play.

    #2255 5 years ago

    I'll say you have some room. NICE! I see you have a Tempest, so do I. They make a new marque and control panel overlay for it. Did you know? I put them on mine with new T-molding and repainted the front wood and coin door.

    Hi MustangPaul
    I moved recently, so i reinstalled the machines quickly.
    Stargazer is running, but i have to manage the 21 machines..
    Here the machine installed near Nineball , when i was in the previous location.

    WOW, you have some cool older games. I watched the Invaders TV show when it was on Prime Time tv but I never knew there was an Invaders pin, that must be super rare. From the looks of your game room you must live in the mountains. Got any pictures of the view out your windows?

    Need to tuck those wires away a little better...

    Grandma gave me the rad retro 70s bar too.

    Constructed this last year all by my lonesome. *pats back However, took two badass friends to lug those bastards in the corner down twelve stairs. They'll probably be there till I die. Lots of board gaming goes down in the nerd den.
    Envious of these awesome-r game rooms posted in this thread!

    Quoted from ddebuss:

    Spent the last couple of nights going through this thread. All I can say is WOW! My herd is still growing in fact this thread helped me figure out how to get 2 more pins and a Skee-ball into the space I have. I now find myself anxiously hunting for new ones. I was always looking but figured I'd have to get rid of one if I get a new one. Now I can get MORE!! More!!! more!!!! without getting rid of anything.
    For now here's how she looks. I'm not much for decorating so not much in the artwork area. There's also a theater room and full bathroom already in and mini-kitchen going in waiting for me to drag a plumber onsite.
    Room 1:
    Ice Cold Beer
    2x Multicades
    Space for 1 more arcade (Stargate, Defender, or Tempest)
    The multicades might go away for something else
    Room 2:
    Demolition Man (just shopped. Love this the most) and my first
    Terminator 2 (never fell in love first to go when I run out of space)
    Monopoly (kids love this one - I'm indifferent)
    Fish Tales (love it but needs to be cleaned)
    Data East Hook (Only seen 1 on this thread. Just shopped. Like more than the ratings would imply I would)
    Valley Cougar Darts (This gets a LOT of play and I love it.)

    That is one hell of a nice vid and gameroom and you have another room with a permanent slot car track....GREAT!

    Can I come over and play....for about a month. You must have some great parties. Would LOVE to see a party vid.

    #2365 5 years ago
    Quoted from Cenobyte:

    Parties are the most fun! As you can see in the last part of the video, there's a complete music and light show system built in the rear part of the game room with laser, fogger, etc. I have used over 160 feet of multicolor LED tape and we have not one but two bars. As you can imagine, some parties end well after midnight...
    As for the fun line-up: there are currently 23 pinball machines, a 3 lane slot race track, 2 MAME arcade systems, an air hockey table and a beamer system with TV tuner, PS3 and XBOX360 hooked to it.

    That is some fun for sure. The only thing your missing is a driving simulator. I saw just the thing for ya and only $48,000.00 on ebay. If I had the money I'd have 2.

    I haven't updated the gameroom, but I did do a little decorating in the laundry/bathroom and got a custom bathroom sign since we're sticking with the alien/sci-fi theme with "Area 42 Arcade." Also added a cool decal on the door to the second pinball room. That room has Frankenstein, Jurassic Park, and soon Predator, so I thought the warning was appropriate.

I hear that's how it starts. lol Forgive the quality I was just messing around with the cell phone and have enjoyed this thread so much I figured I'd add to it. Had to cut quite a few holes in the walls, route coax, drywall out a window to accommodate the changes the pin required, but it was worth it. I just never figured I'd cut so many holes in my new house. Oh and because someone else posted some Star Wars stuff, the last picture is a box I found in my parents attic as I cleaned it out and it's now tucked away in my man cave.

    That is one classy place. You have LOTS of room for people but not much for them to do. May be if you moved the pool table over to the right you could put 6 or 7 pins along that wall and still have plenty of room for the table. Just my 2 cents.

    #2678 5 years ago
    Quoted from n0s4atu:

    Well, I've always enjoyed playing pool, so I wanted to make that half of the room for that, there's actually the perfect amount of space around the table. Squeezing more pins in there would cramp playing pool and more importantly risk them getting slammed into by a cue. I could definitely move the spectator chairs over to the other side and squeeze in two pins where they are currently, but I'm thinking if the bug really bites me, this could be converted into a nice room for pins:

    That room is just to the right of the big tv as you face it. If I'd move a bit faster there's also a good size room I'm using for storage and if I could clear it out, I could fit the smith machine in there and still have the ability to lift. The pool table isn't going anywhere though, because when I bought the house, there was a column smack dab in the middle of where the table is now and I had a structural engineer draw up plans so I could get it out of there. And by I, I mean paid a crew to come in and do it. Drywall, wall fishing, and adding outlets is about the extent of my "skill".

    No, I did not do this myself (I'm a hack). If I had known I would have done this years ago! Just rolling a full size game in there means no more stairs It isn't a full gameroom pic yet, but now that I have a "Pinball door" that room will be getting a lot of changes. Yesterday was a happy day.

    Sorry for the offence, but it was $3,500. Some find this reasonable, others go ballistic. Just read the WOZ castle mod thread about pricing art vs mass production. Some get quite emotional.
    I know you can get an entire machine for this cost, but I like art and pinball, and it sort of combines both. You should see some of the other "first-world problem" stuff I've bought! I suppose I'll have to go home and post pics of it all now. Just my way of contributing to the economy.....
    (reminds me of the joke of the elderly woman at Tiffany's. Bends down to look at a watch and lets out a fart. She doesn't think anyone hears. A shop assistant comes over and she asks "how much is that lovely watch?". He replies "if you fart just looking at it you'll shit yourself when I tell you how much it costs!")

    For a piece of original art like that that actually does something I think that's a reasonable price. More power to you dendoc.

    Quoted from 2FlippedOut41Mo:

    my pins have thrown up all over my living and dining room

    Never thought of working on pins that way. For me it's tables. What are ya putting on the floor?

    #2741 5 years ago
    Quoted from 2FlippedOut41Mo:

    This is what I am putting down. It's a huge upgrade from area rugs covering an un-leveled slab. The room used to be an open porch that was poorly converted to room after the last Hurricane. You should have seen the laughable leveling attempt we did to play pinball in this room before it was actually level. It was so bad for so long that it actually warped one of the legs on FT.

    That looks like a nice hard wood floor.

    Quoted from Meph:

    The worst part is that I have a 4 player Konami cabinet in my garage that is being turned into a 4 Player mame cabinet and now I have no clue where that monster is going to go. Its actually a little smaller than my SSF2T but damn, I picked some giants.

    Well, in your first pict. you have a desk on the right side, could that be moved.

    Quoted from Aurich:

    Finally got off my ass and mounted my swap box last night. RF unit failed for some reason, need to wire in a new one, so the remote is broken and I have to hand plug / unplug temporarily, but not a huge deal.

    Gee...where did ya get that HOT tl for the box, it looks GREAT. It's almost like she's looking for the game.

    #2779 5 years ago
    Quoted from Aurich:

    Problem is I've got this angry guy in an electric chair on my desk giving me the bloodshot stare looking for his game.

    Yeah well you better watch out he plays rough.

    Quoted from flipnout1:

    We built this addition to our home just for games. Its almost done. We still have to "accessorize" with framed flyers, neons, other gameroom related items. Also the Ski Ball that matches the bowler is still being restored but will go beside the Bally Deluxe Ball Bowler.

    Great looking room. How big is it?

    #2785 5 years ago
    Quoted from flipnout1:

    Its 24 x 42. And I'm already out of space, LOL

    1008 sq ft and your out of room. Time to knock out a wall. My room is half that and I'm out of room too but I can't knock down a wall cuz it's my basement.

    #2800 5 years ago
    Quoted from Ed_in_Texas:

    My game room is in what should be the formal dining room in most homes. When we built the house, we moved the main wall back 3' to make the room a little bigger (and our master closet on the opposite side a little smaller). We added additional outlets on all the walls and one plug on each outlet is wired to a single switch. We can turn everything on/off with a single switch. There is room for 8 pins or 7 pins with 2 vids or slots (which is the current configuration). The walls are decorated with pictures, signs, backglasses, etc. Here is a quick video I took last night.

    Nice cozy room and I love the nice high ceiling.

    #2802 5 years ago

    Just added these 2 led signs to the entrance to my gr. They don't make long ones so I took them apart and screwed the aluminum tops, that hold leds and acrylic to a 1x2 board and screwed the board above the door. These from a seller from China work really good because the power cable plugs into the light so I could run it through a wall and then plug it into the light, completly hiding the wire. This company also diamond cuts the edges of the acrylic also which makes them look super. The picture does not do it justice.


    #2804 5 years ago

    Sure, 101winshop on ebay. $14.88 + $11.88 shipping.

    #2823 5 years ago

    Very nice. 2X4ft? And I see that it's still clinging to the ceiling.

    #2825 5 years ago

    Is it reflective at all, I've got the game and that would look great hung over the whole game if it doesn't reflect the light from the game.

    #2828 5 years ago
    Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:

    I have the same light bought from same place in China, I hate the wire to this thing and have to run an extension cord as the cord cant reach the standard outlet to plug in. My sign doesn't have the plug in in the sign, its just a wire into it, no quick disconnect, etc. Let me know how you did it. you can just pm me.

    I have one of those that plugs directly into the sign also but it's from a dif. seller and not nearly as nice, the light color is a washed out blue and the 3 edges of the acrylic are not polished which looks bad. The seller I listed has the nice ones that I show in the picture.

    Bumping the thread with a pic of my new 'pin.' Hey, when you find a basically new Zizzle a few streets from your parents on Craigslist for $50, why not.
    The 'glass' is off so I can shop it. Hopefully I can find some of the weird flipper rubbers or get these to stay on somehow, since one keeps flying off. It looks like they were glued at one point.

    image.jpg 252 KB

    It's so small I can't make out any detail. More pictures please.

    #2868 5 years ago

    One of the articles says the flippers are full size so does a regular rubber fit.

    #2871 5 years ago
    Quoted from blondetall:

    The first thing I tried was putting a regular rubber on it, but they are too thick and heavy to work. I was afraid I was going to break it trying to stretch it over since the others are more plastic and already molded oval.

    GREAT!! Now move the stop and walk/dont walk signs then move those 3 games over to the left and you'll have room for game # 5.

    Quoted from videorob:

    I think my pin room is going to take a massive turn for........better or worse... I think more pins than i can fit.... but I will try to post a new pic.

    That's what I said at 8 also.....now I'm up to 16.

    #2882 5 years ago
    Quoted from NPO:

    If I had #5, how would I get #5's PF glass out with RFM directly its opposite D: ??

    Turn it sideways enough to take the glass off. I have to do that for one of my games because there's a pole in the way.

    Quoted from aingide:

    Here are the first shots of our new game room.
    Still a lot left to do, but we were going for a showroom look and so far it's turning out great! Now we just need to move in the A pins.

    I like the small space gameroom. And it's simple looking without too much stuff on the walls, I like it.
    The "Special when lit" sign is very cool.
    I love the crazy carpets you guys have. It's so arcade-ish, very cool!
    Mine... I just started the hobby by buying my first pin last year.
    Just got my second couple days ago.
    I realized after putting the second next to the first one in the livingroom.. I have to get a gameroom before having more pins at our house.

    That looks like a VERY comfy room. But you need a few more pins.

    #2910 5 years ago
    Quoted from nudgefree:

    It's not really that he "needs" a few more pins but you, like I, have clearly identified his picture of the other part of the room (currently a home theater) as the "pre-pin takeover" photo and that including it is merely his subconscious way of indicating what his room "could" look like at some point in the future. See how easy it is for the mind to Photoshop in a bunch more machines opposite the current pin wall? If this were a poker analogy it would be a called "The Capacity Tell".
