    I know there's a lot of threads about how much space everyone prefers inbetween their pins, but I haven't seen a discussion on the minimum amount of space people need in front of their pin. (Well none that I could find anyways. What happened to this site's search engine? For me it only shows one topic with every search. Anyways, I digress.)

    So how much room do you like for your own personal space? I'm designing a game room that (of course) is going to be cramped and in a few instances I'm going to have less than 30" of space to stand in - which I'm afraid is going to feel very claustrophobic. (Not to mention a pain every time I have to remove the glass.)

    Enough room to take the glass out

    While standing in front of the game.

    And the glass measures 36" long.

    No.....

    Standard playfield glass is 43” long.

    OP: 5 foot is a good Minimum distance needed in front of a pin to both remove glass and have enough room for another person walk by while someone is playing the pin.
