    If this thread is a repeat, I apologize. I have seen a lot of the gameroom picture threads so I realize how many sweet amazing gamerooms are out there. Great collections. Great detail and the passion comes through in pics.
    I suspect that when guests at your places see the gameroom for first time, there is the typical reactions..."holy sh$t"..."this is badass"..."w t f"...."I would live in here"..etc. Then they start playing. They enjoy it. They enjoy it a lot. However, they don't really "get it".
    You get the simultaneous flipper hitters...the ones that go straight past pinball for Pac-Man/ Galaga and you are like, 'hey MM, AC/DC, Tron is right there, bro' - free play no less...ask the typical how much do these cost (upon answering, they now look at you like you are certifiably insane)...ask you if you have KISS or Evil Knievel. You try to explain the CliffyS, the rule set, nerdy factoids, the pincab protectors, plastic protectors, which games are what, etc.
    Anyway, it seems only pinheads really appreciate the details! I need to have more pinheads over
    or get new friends. Ever feel like that?

    Quoted from lowepg:

    I Grin and bear it.
    Probably just like my wine-nerd friends do when I serve screw-top wine at dinner club

    No shame in screw top wines. Some are very good. If they comment, just tell them it is called a "stelvin closure". (Google it!)
