    My puny game room is almost done in my garage. It's about 9' x 24'. There are currently 6 pins out there and a work bench. HOWEVER, no real lighting is installed yet. Would it be foolish to put the rope light all around the top of the walls by the ceiling? Too much reflection? Should I put the rope light around the base of the walls? I like the tube light thing suggested, I'm just short on outlets.....

    Also.... how much power do most people run to their game rooms? We have 100amps for the whole house (built in 1890's- lucky to just have lights). I think the garage box is 40amps (2 20's??). How many machines can be out there safely, you think?

    If anyone's bored enough to lend an opinion..... "appreeshiate ya'" (Utah thing).

    Nice! I am all over that black-light string thing. I was contemplating some string lights with little flames that flicker. I am going to check out the black light string. Thanks!

    Wow, thanks for the knowledge sealclubber! You're a smart feller! I wonder if the box is already 20amp, because there's 220 out there for a compressor... But you explain the lighting excellently. I just don't like the word "build" in there. I'm so sick of "build"ing right now! (Guess you don't feel like stopping by on your way to camping in southern Utah sometime, ha/ha......)

    What color tube light should I eventually get? I just remember Tim Arnold saying one time that red is the worst for washing out color. Maybe that's why everyone goes to the opposite end of the spectrum and chooses purple/blue.

    I do like that low down lighting effect!
