    Quoted from Butterflygirl24:

    I don't have any newer pics of my house (gameroom)... but there is a video on my website http://www.pinballpainting.com of a pinball party we had here.
    Oh and have been married for 28 years...and we are both into pinball so no bachelorette/ bachelor here.

    Awesome setup Phoebe! Great looking room!

    You should put some duck fat in that popcorn machine next time you make some. Or some bacon fat. Or from sausage. A mix of clarified butter and lard is what they used in the first commercial popcorn machine. Also, nice setup.

    Quoted from markmon:

    Why would anyone be afraid to list their games here? That doesn't make sense. What's the big deal?

    You've clearly never been ripped off; it only takes once then you knock all that off. There are too many people who know where I live that I don't REALLY KNOW plus have also friended me on facebook that I don't even talk about trip plans (or post pictures) until after I'm back at home.

    My dad always says the best way to lose something is to brag to somebody else that you have it. I have zero problems sharing what I have with other people (obviously!), but I do make sure that I'm quite careful about it.

    With that said, all my neighbors know I collect pinball machines. Pretty hard not to have them know when the best place to load/unload is right in front of your house!

    Wow, that's weird, I'm hiding in your bushes right now waiting for you to leave.

    Just kidding.

    A few questions. How big is your garage, and can you give me some info on that bowler game you have? I'm wanting to convert my garage into a game room. Actually, I'll take any advice/tips you can give me on your conversion. Thanks! Looks awesome!

    Also, since you live in CA, I'm guessing your garage isn't heated/AC'd, but if it is, any recommendations would be great. Thanks again.

    I have about 50 pins, and somewhere around 25-30 vids.

    Definitely not the biggest collection that I know of, and a lot of you have seen my setup already...but:

    Hey Mccoy,

    My garage is a three car, roughly 640 sqf. I wish I had more room LOL. I don't have AC at the moment, but I will be adding a through the wall unit shortly. At the moment I have inserts in the garage door and a curtain in front of it to keep the heat out, and to give it more of a room look. I also have ceiling fans. One thing I wish I would have done is the floors. I really want to stain the concrete but at this point it would be really hard to move everything.

    The Bowler is a 1988 Williams Gold Mine. Its a six-player game and has 5 different games to choose from. Players slide a puck down the alley to trigger switches that flip up the bowling pins. The pins automatically reset for each player and each frame. Seems to be a hit at party's.
    I made a quick vid of the game play. Nothing exciting, just shows it in action. Any questions, feel free to PM me.

    90% of us are jealous; 5% Have kick A rooms like this, 5% are liars.

    What is the smallest in length puck bowler? Not sure I would sacrifice a pin for the room to fit one, but everyone seems to love them. Multiplayer at gatherings is a great draw.

    I'm not positive, but I think they are pretty much all he same length. Mine is roughly 8 ½ feet long (104 inches). I hear ya about not wanting to sacrifice the room. To be honest I never play it, I have it to add a little variety to the room and for gatherings. In the future I plan to add a spiral staircase from the game room to the room above for more pin space

    #65 7 years ago

    Never question the lengths a thief will go. $10k medieval madness is well worth the effort. I've seen people drive into airports, puncture a gas tank on an suv to steal $120 of gas.

    Well played BackFlipper...I don't know if I would say jealous, maybe more on the lines of...well...ok jealous I guess.

    Very nice bluevegas, very nice indeed. The best I can do right now is the third car tandem in my garage but been working on the wife and I just have to find a damn skeeball machine!

    That is a helluva a lot easier than packing 300 lbs pinball machines out people houses .. LMAO

    Who in the world has a gameroom & no home alarm?

    If you can drop thousands on toys you can spend a few grand to protect your family & belongings.

    When utilized correctly alarms can be damn near impossible to get around.

    #70 7 years ago

    You know its harder than one thinks to hit a person running at 25 yards either with rifle or pistol. But add a 300lb weight and you will surly drop them ; )

    Well, I guess the fact that I generally work at home and hardly ever leave the house makes it hard to rip me off.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Yeah, she's usually at the Chiller Theatre Convention. In New Jersey...a bit far for you, but if you make it here, come as my guest! I just got the Deluxe Eyeball Plunger...can't wait to have it installed on Thurs!

    gross eyeball, rrrr, the game does deserve a plunger mod though

    I'm actually more impressed by those that have machines scattered throughout the house, it shows just how passionate someone is about this hobby IMO. Some get it, some don't.. but when you're buying pins and saying "what the hell" about putting that overflow pinball machine in your laundry room, breakfast nook, etc., because the love the hobby is so strong, now that's awesome!!

    #77 7 years ago

    Bluevegas- Nice setup. Good to have a variety when people come over.

    Yeah the overspill has definitely happened to us. Ran out of room in the game room so we have 4 pins in the house and 1 on the way
