    My basement is currently divided into three large rooms and a hall. When the kid moves out, it will become one large room

    In the gameroom part....I got this neat little Arcade sign pointing the way in, a shelf of Star Wars mircomachine head playsets, bunch of lego creations, some old wind up toys, a small table piled with board, card, and small handheld electronic games. Remember the football one where you had to get the red blip to the other side? I have a Tardis standee covering the breaker box, and then the row of pins. Doctor Who, Fire!, Star Wars, Circus Queen bingo, Comet and Haunted House. There's also a table with a pachinko and my daughter's bartop arcade game. Seems that Puzzle Bobble is the favorite there.

    Overhead, there are a lot of spotlights. Glaring on my pins. So I made a Death Star light cover. And of course, you can't have a Death Star without ships, right? I'm planning on moving the solar system over to cover the spot over the Doctor Who soon. I added a tiny Tardis off of the Earth.

    In the erhm. Laundry Room...there is half the room full of my tools and parts and pieces. I got magnetic wall mount tool holders for the stuff I use most, and I'm getting a rolly tool chest cabinet for Christmas

    Love different stuff:

    Challenger bartop pistol game (1946)
    Space shot cabinet shooter (30's-40's)
    50's Shipman candy machine
    Williams Aqua Gun shooter (1967)
    Georgia jukebox and framed flyers
    Shelf of pinball books and Coke collectibles
    Coke coolers (I have many.

    Quoted from Decat:

    Little Pro redemption mini putt putt game:

    hey, i think i played your Little Pro in Houston. That was a blast. I probably played that as much as anything.

    #155 5 years ago

    I have a 60-1 Galaga and 4 modern pachinko machines (Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones and Top Gun)
    I also have a small Harley Bar and a poker table.

    #156 5 years ago

    Got this in my games room. Better than watching a fish tank.
    He's making me a spiral ramp for my TZ - more on that later.
    I'll post pics of other tid-bits when they finish the resoration.

    Here's a pic of the two things that consistently get the most "likes" when I have people over to my game room.

    I have a display of die cast cars....Nascar, along with early tether cars, .049 powered cars and windup cars. Also, a shuffleboard which, by the way, is far more fun than pool. I built a race sim. that uses the G25 wheel, has a speaker under the racing seat along with a headset/mic that I use for online Nascar racing.

    All of the above.

    13 pinball machines and this guy

    can't put beer in it because it is the older style where the bottles just fall (no arm that comes up to grab each one), but it works well enough for me.

    I have about 6 sets of the old commercially available version called 'spacewarp' that will be set on a shelf in my room sooner or later.

    I'd like to order one of these. Seems at the website they are all Sold Out!
    Do they ship them put together or is "some assembly" required?

    Each one is custom made and comes complete and ready to roll. Just email David and let him know what size you want.

    What's the price range and timeframe from commission to shipping?

    #166 5 years ago
    Quoted from Skins:

    I am interested in this as well. Sure it's not cheap, given they are all hand made, and the workmanship looks great!

    Had to have the payphone. Love to hear the old ring! Also have a popcorn maker and gumball machine.

    #168 5 years ago

    I know this is heresy, but if I had to choose between the two, I'd sell the pins and keep my stereo, also located in our basement. Fortunately, for now at least, I don't have to choose.

    I think the price range is from about $550 to $1,200 for the Wall Units. I hope to spend right in between there...

    Unquestionably the most popular item in my gameroom is the solid state big ball bowler.

    They vary widely according size and if you want them motorised. Contact David through his website and he'll let you know.

    Very cool. So, how in the world did you get that thing down in your basement?!

    Quoted from Craig:

    It comes apart in 4 pieces. After that it's an easy 2-man job to move.

    It's also a walk-in directly from my garage.

    Quoted from Honch:

    I want one of those.
    I've posted this before, it's my HH gun game. Everyone seems to love it. I also have my full sized Crypt Keeper sitting on an electric chair in the corner. And my Book of the Dead, hanging with Elvira.

    Love that Haunted House. Searched for 4 years to find one at the right price. I felt like it was Christmas morning when I made the deal. It's going to be a sweet add to the family arcade...OHEMIO

    I made some shelves for my game room out of old pipes and an antique beer crate. Also have a few artist screenprints for the 3 best movies ever made. Plus an "Immaculate" image signed by Franco.

    We collect horror themed prints and toys and weird toys. My game room is my living room and guest bedroom so it's broken up over two rooms and the guest bedroom really doesn't have anything yet.image-176.jpgimage-6.jpgimage-883.jpgimage-211.jpgimage-716.jpgimage-236.jpg

    Picture of my gameroom before ANYTHING was moved into the house. Like, seriously, the traffic lights were nearly the VERY first thing brought into the home.

    Humble.jpg

    Only my wife and her friend got in the house before these beauties .

    The gameroom as it is now, minus one or two small additions. Getting a neon sign soon - of what I don't know... yet.

    Both traffic lights run off of their own sequential circuits. I could have wired them onto one circuit to where they were converses of each other (Red light = Walk light..... Green light = DW light, etc), but I didn't want wires hanging everywhere.
