sorry to hear about your basement. your bowling lane was nice!

dig the fh clock and the cardboard standees nice idea to pin against the wall. clever!
Quoted from Zampinator:
Finally got around to taking a couple of picks of the 'ManCave'. It's a work in progress. We moved into this house 2 years ago to the day. The garage is why I bought this house, it's 24x84 with a full upstairs.
The upstairs is only partially finished, when I'm done there will be a golf simulator, putting green, & lots of pinball machines!

Quoted from ramegoom:
My new game room at my office, with a bit of variety. Cars, pins, slots.

Quoted from Deaconblooze:
This is my favorite thread on pinside, by a long shot. It's been a while since I've contributed. Here's my mostly current setup.

nice setup! question do you find slanting your pins gives you more or less room? just curious as I have seen that before and thought it would be nice in certain areas opposed to straight out of wall
Quoted from Fuse:
Here's my room, unfortunately I only own the sttng as far as pins, the rest I fix and shop for a guy. Sold all my arcades except for the ms pac since my wife loves it and then spent half my life building the mame machine!

love that juke! and nice lineup
Quoted from PW79:
I changed a few decks & installed a light for the new foosball n skateboard wall.
The new light makes shit look like an art gallery. I feel so fancy lol
Enjoy the pic my fellow skaters... well I'm a fat guy who remembers himself as a much better skater than I really was
Last pic is my daughter making her Braveheart speech before a foosball battle lol

tornados are really nice. tho I found on my old tornado the ball kept dead sitting in the corners, eventually got rid of it. nice setup and LOVE THE DECKS!!!
Quoted from PW79:
Most tornados have angled playfield strips & the most recent gen players have a wider taper although I think that change was made many years ago.
Good news is no losing the ball in a corner.
Bad news is the guys break a lot more now because when they can press against the ball when it's against the wall the players flex.
You sold your tornado?
User ignored lol (jk)
Here are the mounts I use

LOL well I didnt quite sell it, I traded it for a pinball... no joke. so I was happy to see it go hahaha
Quoted from ziz:
Here is one, would love to have one of these, so much fun.
I find that game kinda boring, I mean its fun annihilating strangers but if u play the original game alot its rather easy to take out everyone and then the round is over fast along with your credits.
Quoted from Kcbbq13:
Not really my game room, but this is next to the room that pins will end up in... Built this over the weekend with my 10 year old.20150804_113308.jpg
wow thats awesome. would have lived on one of those growing up. I would recommend padding that pole. some friend is gonna drop in and fly right into it. Id be sure to have it well padded off!
awesome clip rotordave. nice collection and house. you are blessed and thats great u have the family support, thanks for sharing, enjoyed it!!!
what is that wooden game with the posts on it on the table? some kind of skill game?
Quoted from 27dnast:
Have made some tweaks and additions to the game room... continuing with the hockey/pins/movie theme with hockey puck coasters, some classic Caps and Flyers photos, pinball fliers, and a few movie posts along the wall shared with the dedicated home theater...recently added in some original works of art on skate decks that I picked up from some artists....and just began phase two expansion into a storage/work room that was 1/4 work shop and 3/4 shelving and storage. With a little spring cleaning combined with some shelving reconfiguration, I can now fit 7 or 8 pins in there. I'm thinking this room will remain largely unfinished...I like the exposed beams, concrete floors, and string lights. Gives the room its own feel.
The other side of the wall in the main game room is a space that's under a 3 season room on the first floor. Probably would never happen...but I'd love to build it out and cut a door through the exterior brick...would give me another 17X12 space. Otherwise, space is out.
I know...I know... first world problems. But, we're all allowed to dream. Right?
Anyhow, thought I would share and perhaps someone might take an idea or two...or have a suggestion or two!
The sickness grows.
Quoted from PinJim83:
In my opinion, great. I think it is an underrated game and I enjoy it even more than Black Knight...maybe even my favorite playing pin in my collection.
**EDIT: I should also add my girlfriend really likes Jungle Lord and she doesn't really like pinball. I'm still working on that, but I have turned her into a bit of a Space Invaders (cocktail arcade) addict.
Here are a couple more pics from the basement, including one with better lighting and a shot of some of my defunct casino poker chip collection.
jl is a great game, very very underrated and awesome sounds. nothing like triggering the stampede multiball sounds!!!
Quoted from Cam:
Now the Edmonton Oilers section. Almost every item is game worn/used and came from the Oilers locker room over the years.
awesome awesome room. I dig the penalty box and the oilers stuff, sad to hear they traded hall this year. I finally found a open ice and still in the hunt for a dedicated gretzky machine.
reminds me of a buddys mansion I grew up with, he had a little roller rink setup in his basement you could play 2 on 2 in. great great room buddy! thumbs up!
nice ohio state gear and lineup. dog looks like hes ready to play too haha nice setup
i wish i could find a copy of my first deck.
drydek pro model alien workshop.
very early board was really neat til i thrashed and cracked it in half. nice board collection.
I always rode them had I never used them Id be sitting on a pile.
Quoted from ramegoom:
While on the subject of water, here's a video of my game room in Illinois ten years ago, after a storm that left 4 inches of water in much of the room. 8 minute walk-thru and you can see the carpet floating.
There were four sump pumps in the room, but the power outage killed the deal. Things you learn.
My goodness that video made me sick to my stomach! How much rain did that take? Was it like day after day of rainfall. Just wow
I hope you got an insurance claim for the damage
A good friend of mine had the cities pipe back up and had raw sewage dookie floating in his basement. Luckily he didn’t have any games in there. 10k later it barely covered the cleanup.
Good that the pins are on stilts but wow that video glad to see you got out of there and in somewhere new.
Quoted from xfassa:
It was 62F at the start of the night and a comfortable 68F at the end of the night.
Awesome lineup and game room
Question how do you get the glass off running games that tight? Do you lift the pin up and remove them for service ?
Again very epic lineup and nice choice of arcades
I really like old original and huge signs
Some reproductions can be found that look fairly well and a small fraction of the price for wall decor
The market is full of repops now and india is making huge signs that look real but are selling for crazy money
I have an alien similar to that one sharper image made years ago. That mars attack one is cool
That does suck but could be a lot worst most games look like they are gonna be okay
An eye opener for sure. Scary stuff glad to see you come out okay
Quoted from TRAMD:
My basement with arcade, 11 seat bar and 10 seat theater. It gets a lot of use.

What are the specs on that supercade multi?
Is that a full size machine or smaller kid model?
Wow amazing space
That’s the best poker table I’ve even seen
Did you make it ? Awesome!
Loving watching the oilers
Wish I could come over and play but alas in Ohio lol
One day I will watch oilers live in Edmonton
Shaq was on the Celtics lol
I would love to see an icy hot Shaq translite or even better the general with Shaq lol
Cool and fun game though kinda miss mine for some reason hahaha
That penny arcade collection is very impressive
I saw one very close to it in Ohio really amazing pieces and serious pricetags on them.
Really neat stuff
Wow that neon sign is truly amazing
Nice game room but the motion neon just wowowow
That game Room is as cool as ice
Let’s kick it !!
Seriously though that’s one tribute to vanilla ice
I like his hgtv show
Every time I have little ones over they almost always try to get inside the games
Especially if the key is in
Like every time
Exploring maybe? Candy inside lol
I even predicted it last time to the mother and she was like no no , 5 mins later hand inside game lol
Quoted from NorCalRealtor:
I hope you all enjoy exploring the space! Click the link below for a 3D self-guided tour.
There's a poker table under the table top. Table top comes in handy for food & board games. The Star Wars & Guardians pictures in the bathroom are 3D, which ironically didn't translate. Still a few things to finish such as staining the doors, hanging more beer signs, installing surround sound in the ceiling. It's getting there.
Now that’s what I call a tour!
