    You guys are a hoot. Great humor from all.

    #402 6 years ago

    Basement looks great. Love the pins too. I'm hoping to start my basement in the spring.

    Good luck with that
    And if you need some help with some fun *wink* afterwards, you know who you have to ask

    #404 6 years ago

    Looks great. Nice to see it come together for you. Game on.

    #406 6 years ago

    I did the same thing first time I saw that!

    #407 6 years ago

    Got the two fun ones brought to life...and the cat discovered Metallica....

    omg... I would have mouse traps up there.....

    #409 6 years ago

    Did you get an eyeball sticker for that met pro. Its a really good and easy mod. Looks like its supposed to be there.

    #410 6 years ago

    Nope, no eyeball shooter. I did just swap in LEDs into the inserts. I will tackle the GI later.

    #411 6 years ago

    Oh, and my new custom Xenon topper got installed this morning....

    Seems like that's a fairly common topper.

    #414 6 years ago

    I have a few toppers like that one.

    #415 6 years ago

    Does your topper ever attack the RPG?

    #416 6 years ago
    Quoted from OuttaSpace:

    See if you can get video of that and post it.

    #417 6 years ago

    I have the perfect fix for all these toppers....IMG_20131223_135612_908.jpg

    #418 6 years ago

    Fantastic...if it will eat my topper bring it over!

    #419 6 years ago

    How do you like Met?

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Still learning it, but so far it's been getting a ton of play. Between me not knowing the rules and the rules not being all there yet I can't say it's a deep game for me yet, but it's a blast to play!

    You're welcome to pop over and play it..

    And for anyone wondering, give me a few weeks and I will do a basement warming party.
    I need to get the machines all working well, but, more importantly, wife and I want a bit of quiet time after the last few months of craziness.

    Hey if you're lucky the new Metallica code will be here in time for your party, be a nice bonus.

    Cool! Thanks....can't wait! So far, the New Year has been pretty good!

    #423 6 years ago

    Congrats Greg. Looks great!

    #424 6 years ago

    Agreed all...

    Went downstairs and tried to figure out WoZ last night...this looks like a challenge for me since "bash the colored lights" doesn't work so well when everything is lit!

    #425 6 years ago

    Well, best basement ever. Keep up the great work and the great work on the funhouse!

    #426 6 years ago

    It's a Funhouse...a Funnnnnnnnnnhouse!

    Blinky things!

    #428 6 years ago

    Few pictures my wife took....

    In many of these it almost looks like Ted is manipulating tools!

    #429 6 years ago

    And those pictures are not in chronological order by the way...

    Quoted from NJGecko:

    Hah! I had a couple of good teachers!

    #431 6 years ago

    Nice game room and awesome collection.

    #432 6 years ago

    Ted's got the coolest effin shirts. I'm jealous.

    #433 6 years ago

    It seems like Jersey is where all the action is.

    #434 6 years ago

    Oh yeah!....We're gettin' some snow action here right now!

    #435 6 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    Yep ... da sheet-storm is a comin'

    #436 6 years ago

    Yes we are! I can hardly wait to shovel

    #437 6 years ago

    I was just saying to my wife and kids (on my way downstairs for some pin fun) that this is the way to spend a snowstorm....No work tomorrow, even if they don't cancel school, my kids aren't going, and I stocked up on booze for saturday's poker game already
    They closed state offices tomorrow but our school district makes us wait til 5 am to put the call out.....
    anybody ever have a cinnamon toast crunch? Rumchata and fireball over ice...mmmmmmmmmmmm

    Sounds like you are all set

    #439 6 years ago

    I am not a state employee. I have to go to work.

    #440 6 years ago

    Love the new game room. Looks fantastic. How many pins can u put down there?

    #441 6 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    Yeah, we're getting a little too this evening. I'm already sick of winter.

    Quoted from smokey_789:

    I am not a state employee. Just happen to be off for the past two weeks for the holidays. I was just bitching about my local district lagging behind Sorry we have derailed this basement thread and made it the jersey boy thread!

    #443 6 years ago

    Got the call and the kids are off. I work from home, so I'm not sure this is a good or bad thing.

    #444 6 years ago

    State worker here.. on a quick "break" I was ready to go home but looks like we will be here all night. A nice water main break..and yes working tomorow..enjoy the pins

    #445 6 years ago

    No School! My kids are psyched. I remember that feeling.

    #446 6 years ago

    It was really cool to watch this transformation. Thanks a lot for sharing, NJGecko.

    #447 6 years ago

    Great progress.

    #448 6 years ago

    Thanks all. And yep, sounds like I may be home tomorrow too. I just finished my battle home and it's not pretty out there!

    So latest potential development....we may move the xbox "nook" into part of my former gameroom/office/future wife/craft room. That would actually mean I get the entire basement so means I need to rethink my strategy, but room for more!

    #449 6 years ago

    Lucky man... I hope to get another pin eventually just need some moolah
