    My guess is...15 pins can fit in there.

    Very nice. How come you only vinyled under that support beam?

    True, but someone had mentioned just putting a board/block under the front legs to solve the glass issue. Otherwise the dilemma is to have less games. I personally will not block doors, windows (or their frames) but every other square foot is fair game.

    Where does the desk go in this new office though?

    Quoted from Mikala:

    I love Williams 70's EM's, as you can see. Have room for only two more, a Grand Prix and undecided.

    Obviously a Space Odyssey. (and I have one that may be for sale coincidently)

    Awesome rooms here everyone (and very inspirational since I'm about to start a 13' x 22' basement pin room). Been getting ideas here so I'm dangerous. Right now I'm just working off a vision in my head, but hope to have a cool little spot to share some pictures of soon.

    I have a question about led/rope lighting. What type should I use? It would run along the baseboards, and also underneath a round glass table. I will have an outlet in one corner of the basement for the baseboard lighting, that's dedicated to a dimmer switch at the entrance. The glass table will also have an outlet underneath for LEDs, and will be operated by the same switch as the baseboard lights. Basic rope lighting would be sufficient along the baseboards possibly, but for the table I'll need something I can trim/mold...(it will be a craft project for me). Ideally I'll be able to dim the LEDs and have a color choice.

    Room will have jet black walls and ceiling, with a glossy Caribbean blue poly finish over concrete floor. I'm hoping the end result makes it seem like a flooded basement, in the Caribbean

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    That floor is slick! I looked at different colors for my room, decided on silver metallic polyaspartic. Black walls and ceilings will make it very cool, although every speck of dust will glow on the walls. Consider a satin finish instead of flat black.
    As for the LED lighting, those rope lights from Ebay have controllers which change colors and can be dimmed. I plan on using them on my room, but haven't decided whether to affix them to the top edge of the baseboard, or top edge of the upper trim board. And, I have a short strip going under the bar, which will light the corrugated metal fascia below. Check out those RGB LED Chinese made parts...they're pretty common and at least 16 different colors are available with the controller. They all use a laptop style charger for the 12 volt source for the RGB style LEDs.

    Sorry, just saw this. Thanks for the painting tip! I did get the floor inspiration from your post, so thanks again. My floor was just done over the weekend, so should have some pics up soon. It really looks like a Caribbean beach! (different than my stock photo) Incredible stuff. Can't wait to get the electrician in and start experimenting with lighting. Thinking the metallic will make it even more interesting.

    #5578 3 years ago

    Yep, keep the bubble hockey. Need variety. Lose the couch and put pins on that back wall. Put a small cocktail table with two slim stools somewhere (middle or end of room) for seating.

    #5582 3 years ago

    You have to 'invent' space. I kicked my kids out of their romper room last week. New pin room underway. They should be outside anyway

    #5585 3 years ago

    ....or move the tv to the corner near the gumball machine. Opens up that area for more in the line. Build a table around that post to make a built-in cocktail table. Add 4 slim stools. Another pin can back up to that wall behind the couch.

    #5594 3 years ago

    Pindad3 that is a sweet space! (could have more ems cough cough, ahem)

    I'm working on a smaller room with a pole in the center. Made a small bar out of it, kind of.

    My roughly 14'x23' basement room turned into Disco Dave's Pinball Parlor, which is ok. 50's, 60's and 70's EMs. A few empty spots to fill yet.
    Edit: added 'before' pics I found.



    #5853 3 years ago

    Better pics of the pins.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    When do the strippers come out?

    Don't know. Probably after I'm in bed.

    Quoted from saucerman:

    Very very cool and hip but not in the hipster sort of way

    Thanks. Right right, not a hipster (not that there is anything wrong with that).

    Counter point: I think it frames the room out nicely. A very clean look. I see what you're saying, but I think that was implemented excellently.
    *and I only like ems

    Having two rooms with games, one carpeted, and one similar to ramegoom's...I prefer the concrete for all the listed reasons.

    #6449 3 years ago

    I like the idea of a brick accent wall, also the black ceiling. Probably not both though. Depends if you prefer a dark look when you play and walk around. I blacked out my walls and ceiling...and the pinball machines are the 'art'.

    Quoted from jorge5240:

    I was going to wait until I was done with my space to post a video. But this may be a little far out for you but I went with jelly domes for lighting.
    I also second the hue bulbs. I have six of those throughout the house.
    Also can never go wrong with neon.

    Nice...and a pool table too. What's with the bunk beds?

    I ran the idea to move them past my daughter. She said, 'No!'

    My disco, updated with a few more games. Little Pro, Star Slugger, Sittin' Pretty and Snow Derby are newer additions.

    BINGO !! Thanks for asking that question. I wont even buy a shirt if its printed on the front because I'll never wear it no matter how much I like the design.

    It's not a full game room, but it is a game wall.
    At least it is a start.

    That is very very cool, and classy.

    semi-tangent: there are people who just moved in with cars in their driveways already! clean up and throw some of your junk out! damn hoarders. or if you need a woodworking shop, use your f'n basement.
    tangent: to make things worse, then you have people backing into their driveways blocking traffic (me). .

    Shoot their tires out!

    It's one of their (many) perks. If they work here, they get free golf, free range balls, free golf lessons, equipment at cost, and free pinball.

    I see a King Kong listed in your collection? (and one previously owned)

    What??? Cool

    Thanks Alex, but I went down that road a few times to get where I'm at now. I can almost certainly say that probably might not happen

    #7713 2 years ago
    Quoted from bobnatlanta:

    Updated lineup after some trading and juggling. The 150 sq ft room will hold six, a little uncomfortably. Currently I've got 8, with 1 on the way out, TBD, and another that will have to live in the garage until I make the next set of difficult choices... All the games are functional, and the space has been almost completely cleared of parts and tools in prep for holiday visits. The Spirit of 76 head is part of a a WIP, as is the Grand Prix, which is currently in the garage.

    +1 on the Surf Champ.

    #7714 2 years ago
    Quoted from Bugsy:

    I love the pitch and bat! Really awesome. Thanks!
    I also like the solitary chair in front of the TV. It screams "Damnit woman! Don't you know this is my only escape in this world?! Leave me be."

    And that's all that would fit there, so it works out.

    This is soon to be my new game room! I'll have room for 12 machines. Complete with a bar! We close on 4/11 and move in 4/14

    Non-pin related...but what type of animals do you expect to see around there? and do they come close to the houses?
