As an employer that cares about the overall well being of my employees I made the effort to setup a pinball machine in the office at work.

So far it has not bee a distraction and is well received considering its an older (but still fun!) game.

Post you pictures of a game at the workplace if you are so lucky!

We had a Ghostbusters pro in the game room at Honda R&D in Marysville. Played the crap out of it and owned all the high scores

Not pinball unfortunately, but the Best Buy corporate office has these games set on freeplay.

Post an acutal (vs. photoshopped) picture of a pinball machine in a post office and you definitely win!

I sold a nice STTNG to a Deloitte conducting partner in the DC area that put the machine in the deloitte office's break room. Wish I had a pic

I work from home and all my pins are very close by at all times.

Don't have any pictures, but I used to bring some in probably 10 years ago until it was abused. Unfortunately some coworkers came in on the weekends and brought their whole family in...then somehow left with the games on. Had MM, CV and Fast Draw.

Business Insider did an article on my former company and myself with one of our game-rooms.

Last year at Christmas time, I brought my Gottlieb 300 into work, as a gift to my co-workers.
It was a huge hit, so much, that the company CEO told me I could bring a machine in any time I wanted.

Last month, after Pinfest in Allentown I never brought my Sky Kings home, and took it directly to work.
It's been here ever since, and gets regular play on both shifts!

End of last year we had a major change at my client's site. It involved 200 people who were present for 2 weeks in several shifts. Management decided to create a relax area with some games with a PS4 / VR setup and I was asked to supply a pinball machine. I had a spare Cyclone so that was a good candidate. Got like 400 plays in 2 weeks. Afterwards, instead of bringing it home I sold the machine and was picked up at work by its new owner.
Haven't missed it since.

We’ll, I’m in outside sales, I usually only go to our main office once a week.

Meaning - I have four offices; my car, the clients home, my home and the actual office.

My car, certainly moves games, and takes me to arcades along the way of wherever I’m going.

Clients Homes, I have a couple clients with a game or two - one thing that helped me close a deal once was to fix a stuck slam switch on an Indy! They hadn’t played it for 6 months!

My home, my home office is upstairs, and all the pins are downstairs. If I had a pin in my home office room, I’d never get anything done.

The actual office, there probably wouldn’t be space for one, nor the interest, sadly.

I had a Williams Big Star at work till I sold it and it was replaced with Domino from my line up.

In our physical therapy area were it is actually used by patients for standing therapy.

We had a Diner in the breakroom at my first radio station. Must've been '94-5ish. I played the crap out of that thing.

I work part time at a classic arcade in Branson, Missouri

We’ve got about 14 pins and 45+ arcade games and counting!

Not a dental office, but recently swapped out games in my veterinary office.

Found a new home for Meteor; to fill the empty space Transporter came to the rescue.
