    You may remember back in April I pulled a little prank
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/omg-incredible-storage-unit-score-holy-st
    Turned out those were my pins in storage as I was staging my house for sale.
    Well it took a while, but am in my new digs now and just starting to put the gameroom together.

    Nice size room. My lovely lady decided on a grey ceiling, blue walls and white trim.
    Total mess right now but should come together quite nicely. Gonna be a while till I can get back to working on it (I have to build a fence before the rains hit) but I will try to post some progress pics as I go.

    I was looking for one for a long time too, and it cost me a bit, but it has the upgrade with all the Exidy shooters on the board, and came with new side art. Not leaving any time soon, I'm thinkin', but will keep it in mind, tho the shipping to Texas would be spendy, that SOB is F'n HEAVY.

    Very nice. Nice big room and a supportive partner. Sometimes I wonder if I like building and tweaking the gameroom more than the games in it.

    #10 5 years ago

    Nice sized room. Enjoy

    Looking Good, Zippy!

    Sweet to live your dreams!! Sharing is even better... thanks!

    You got me thinking outside the pinball box now.....What are your top arcade machines you and others have the most fun?

    Hey Zippy, how about a top 100 video arcade games?

    #13 5 years ago

    Don't really have a lot of arcades just what's on that wall. Mostly a pin guy. The crane machine was a housewarming gift for my sweetie. She's a sucker for the things, can't go past one in the store without dropping a buck or two in.

    I put some rgb led strips in my lady's brother's place and she suggested doing them in the game room here, so I added a bit of extra crown molding with a small lip and started stringing them up today. Looks sweet, but I ran out before I finished.
    Pics when the rest of the LEDs show up.
    These ceilings are not as high as my last place, had to modify Black Knight's topper a bit, but it fits.

    #15 5 years ago

    Plugging in everything and seeing what mayhem happened during storage and moving. Black knight has a ball lock issue, Moon flight has a reset issue, and F-14's spinner broke off somehow. Otherwise coming along...

    Getting closer to finishing. The LED's along the ceiling turned out nice. Can't see them in the pics tho, I'll see if I can post a vid...

    #22 4 years ago

    Holy shit dude sweet! That's a way more legit game room space than you had before. Jelly...

    #23 4 years ago

    Super neat crane game! So many of them are too large, your has a smaller footprint than a vid. Can you tell me more about it? I see it's acme crane, who's the mfgr?

    #25 4 years ago

    It is a pretty sweet crane, along with the smaller footprint, it has a couple neat features. It has a spinner control to spin the claw as it is dropping anyway you want, the claw is air compressor powered with adjustable tension. The base has opto sensors and automatically raises or lowers depending on how full it is. In attract mode it can with optos, grab and drop items, to fluff the stuffies. Comes in a full size as well. Made by Benchmark.
