    Quoted from Dbaum88:

    Here are 5 of my pins, including my new Tron Legacy Pro and Star Wars Data East.

    Is that your $10,000 spending spree? Fun!

    Quoted from Darth_Chris:

    Just above Met is a Topper but in the back, that grey Metallic tube is just a left over from an old hot air heating dock system. It's not in use anymore. I have a few meters in the baseman to measure the quality of the air, temperature, humidity, radon level....
    Rest assure, before installing any machine I located all the water pipes to make sure it is as far as possible you can get.
    Thanks for thinking of the well being of my pins. You never can be to careful. Can't wait for my new gameroom.

    Darth Chris, can I asked where you got the Terminator Salvation from. Price range?

    Also, does your son realize he has a Chukee Cheese in his own house?!

    #1764 5 years ago
    Quoted from Darth_Chris:

    I bought the Terminator Salvation when it came out. Nib from a distributor who use to have arcades in Montreal. A few models are available. The 32" monitor with the fixed guns is the most affordable. I really wanted the non fixed guns with the 42 inches monitor. Costed me 8900$. Since then they came out with a super deluxe 103" projection screen I think. Saw that one in Vegas last week. Gun console with the speakers remotely from the screen with 2 red eyes glowing terminators is huge and impressive but quite frankly my brother in law and I were not impressed at all with the resolution. Very pale and ugly projection screen for a maxhine that expensive. Since it's been out for a while now prices might have drop big time but strongly recommand the model I bought. I have tried the 3 and this is the best one.
    I have 2 sons. On the picture you can see my oldest. He really likes pinball and to be honest getting pretty good at it. After daddy he is the best on high scoring. Lots of people come to play but non pinhead and well....no very good at it. Still every one that comes have a good time.
    Can't wait to get that sports bar extension this fall. Anyone around sometimes make a stop. Fridge always full of beer and hockey season is about to begin.

    NIB Salvation! You do not mess around do you.

    I played Salvation with my 7 year old son last weekend at an arcade and had a blast.
    I am form Maine and I know hockey for sure. Bruins. My wife, son and I lived in Toronto for 6 months for her work and have to say the people of Canada are the best. We could not have had a better time during our short stay. You folks up north are class acts. Thanks.

    Thanks for the beer offer to us. Especially when beer up there costs $12 for a six pack?! That was the only problem I had with Canada - beer prices. Cheers!

    I've seen a couple people break the rules, so I'm going to follow suit. Although I've posted some pictures in the past, I made a video last night and wanted to share. Enjoy!

    Nice, Altan! I may have to pick your brain in the future about how to set up my future pin purchases if that is alright with you. In the process of redoing my basement now to add more room.
    Have T2, Roadshow, WC Soccer and RIpleys on my want list. Very nice collection. Enjoy!

    Here's a few pics of my man cave and my wife's library too, converted for one night.

    Why does that area look so familiar? Oh, I was just there last night! Thanks for inviting me over and hosting the Pingolf. You have a very nice family, group of friends, home and pin collection. What else could you need? I will definitely keep in touch. Thanks, Greg

    Quoted from erak:

    Love the boards on the wall.
    Here is a pic of the same board I had back in the day.
    Wish I still had it. I gave it away to a neighbours kid on my street when I went to college around '93-94

    Quoted from pinworthy:

    Finally got all the machines organized. I've been spending all my money on pins so I need to put that on hold and put some $$ into the game room.
    The current framed wall behind the EMs will get a beam and a 12' opening and the room will expand that direction.

    Road trip? I would love to play your Mutang and some of those EMs. That is going to be an awesome game room when it all comes together!

    Closeup of Jukebox, running album player with a custom version of a skin to remove a bunch of things and simplify the experience for my guests. This thing gets way more action then I could have imagined from guests.

    Nice gameroom! What is that jukebox on the wall?

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Very slow progress here, but it's coming along. I've had an upstairs game room since 2010. This will be a dedicated first floor game room. It will have a dedicated pin room, work shop, den/bar area and full bath. It's 25x30 with a 10x30 porch. A 4' ramp will roll up from the driveway to the back door which will be the workshop entrance.
    Cons: Wife said it had to match the house (cost of brick etc).
    Pros: It matches the house (10 ft ceilings and other nice amenities). Wife says its all mine! The kids have a separate playroom, gym area etc in the house that won't mess with my precious).


    Sorry this topic is for game "rooms" not game "houses"! Seriously this is just awesome. You missed Pro - your wife gave you the go ahead on this! Your wife is probably right about the brick and style of the house though. You are a fortunate guy! Awesome!

    Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

    Here is an updated picture of an extra bedroom that's serving as a temporary game room while I finish my basement. WoZ is sitting in the dining room for now since I ran out of room.
    Here is the game room I'm building in the basement. It just needs insulation and return HVAC ducts and then it's ready for drywall. You can see part of the bar / pool table area on the left. Around the side of the bar is a bathroom and right past that, I'm building a theater. The cool thing is that prior to starting this project, I had never even cut a 2x4 in half. I'm doing everything myself except for the drywall. I paid $100 for some streaming "how to finish your basement" videos and learned everything from those. My dad has been helping me every weekend for the last few months.

    Doing that with your Dad and yourself is impressive! How are yoi getting heat down there?

    Quoted from Dooskie:

    My 'game room' is a little bit different from everybody else's. It starts indoors with three pinball machines and a room full of golf clubs. Then it spills outside to 205 acres of rolling terrain, ponds, trees, and closely mown areas with holes and flagsticks. If you are ever in Old Town, Maine, stop in, play the pins, have a beer and then head out to play my golf course. I can guarantee you will have a fun day.


    Nice! I grew up in Maine and still have family there. Will try to get up to you some tme this Summer.

    Do you really own a King Kong?

    #6378 3 years ago
    Quoted from Bos98:

    There is so much more space but I am not allowed to enter the theater space or my sons play area which is huge on the other side

    He will grow up. It won't be a play area forever.

    Quoted from lordloss:

    I just cringed! Those are basically all the craigslist leftovers

    My Golden Tee 2016 pedestal for $3500 delivered with no tax will beat your TSPP's ass up and down the block for value, fun and joy from everyone of just about any age that plays it. Just pretend you are a little younger than you are and you may like it to. CL that MOFO!

    #6985 3 years ago
    Quoted from lordloss:

    To me a golden tee is in the same league as the madden video games. Not sure why people buy those and they depreciate pretty fast and don't hold value worth a damn.

    I see what you are saying about the gameplay being similar. Golden Tee is super fun to play with a group of friends at a get together. GT holds it value pretty well with routed 2011's selling for over $2000 today. So I figure my GT as a $250 depreciation per year.

    I super agree with you that you would have to take a crazy loss on $10000 or whatever they go for new Batman driver if you purchased one.

    Quoted from DinoBob:

    My modest game room. Working on convincing my amazing wife for number three with my eyes currently on Metallica Pro, Tron (please release a VE), or Addams Family. In the past I've Twilight Zone, AC/DC Premium, Stargate, and my very first pin: Hurricane. Open to suggestions on what would compliment my two current games, which I have no plans to flip any time soon.

    I have IM and LOTR also with SMVE, POTC.

    Met is good and may be my next one to fill void of acdc which I just sold. SM is really good and my favorite game. If you want something a little different than SM get ST. I miss my ST. Hobbit and LOTR are a special pair! I own potc and really like that also. Good luck!

    New addition for the game room, Hyperspin Arcade cabinet! I've been playing before and after work since I got it, haha.

    Looks cool, but I am not familiar. What is that, what games are on it, how does it work and how much is it?

    #8505 2 years ago

    Yeah are some games dead or don't work right? Do they all work right with 2 players?

    Quoted from steve-o:

    So we just moved the pins and a few arcade machines back in after painting a room here. It was a task that I've been dreading for years, but the 18 year old horrendous mint green paint had to be eradicated. I like the new clean look, but my wife and some friends want the stuff that we found and collected back up on the walls. I didn't get any good pics of the before, but it kinda gives you an idea of how much "stuff" there was nailed and screwed to the drywall....

    Don’t know if this thread is for in home game rooms or just pics of “your” game room. Here is one of my games rooms that are on route. If this doesn’t count I won’t post any of my routes and apologies in advance.

    Great group of games for fortunate customers! Nice

    Have to ask - What are those cupbolders? Seems like they would take out kneecaps of players?

    Quoted from Bud:

    I built them out of 1/2 inch pipe and solid oak. Surprisingly knees aren’t affected, and the are easy to move under or to the side if desired. Here are some pics, I wanted to do a contrast stain, maybe next time.[quoted image][quoted image]

    Cool man. Thanks for explaining. What an awesome set up you have. Hope you have continued success!
