I supply the quarters, but if you win something with the claw you have to take it home!

I still have bags of the things, the result of having two daughters.

The machines are on four wall switches so I can turn them on or off as needed. My electric bill is high anyways. I have over 20 computers in the house, including a file server with 28 TB of storage. I leave some of the computers on all the time because they provide streaming capabilities to my other devices in the house, or to my iPad out of the house. Plus i work out of my house, so I need to have multiple computers running all day long.

In fact a year ago, I had an energy audit, and while my natural gas usage is low (even though I have a gas cooktop, and dryer), my electric bill is higher than others. Of course all those computers and other electronic devices generate heat which means I do not need to heat the house with gas as much.

The skeeball was purchased at an auction at Salisbury Beach, MA from an arcade that was having a going out of business auction sale. It was $125, and included the complete set of real wooden skeeballs. These balls alone are worth two to three times that price.

I can never sell it though. My wife and kids would disown me. wink.gif

Well after months of demo work converting one decent loft and bedroom to just one giant super loft, my game room is just about complete. The idea was not to spend a fortune. I subbed out plumbing, electrical and drywall texturing. The rest I did all by my lonesome. I lucked out in many instances. Finding many great deals and salvaging the granite from bulk trash pick up day. wink.gif


Game room/bar. $600 pool table I found on craigslist. Air hockey was $30 on craigslist as well. Assorted memorabilia on the wall and shelf.

A shelf I built at the top of the stairs landing for more memorabilia and my wife's military awards.

$50 Foostable on clearance at sears. An X-mas present in the form a basketball hoop. Sadly the scoreboard no longer works and the company wants $90 for a new one. frown.gif

Another view of the hoops and foosball, along with my Chiefs dartboard. (another xmas gift.)

Finally the wet bar and another shelf for memorabilia.


Really, I would like to add some additional seating and a MAME arcade. I have a few more jerseys and some 8x10s to hang, I am just waiting to save up some more money. Arnt we all?

My DVD Collection
GO CHIEFS, WILDCATS, SUNS, DIAMONDBACKS, COYOTES, RATTLERS, AND LUMBERJACKS!

I had to move a little more than a year ago due to a fire, One of my mandatory things was a FULL basement and big enough to have a pool table and Full size Air Hockey.
well here is the game room a work in progress, I came here looking for ideas from a Google Search.

Love the fact that you just hang stuff on the concrete and don't wait until you've got finished walls up. smile.gif

Love the backhanded comment.
Sorry if it doesn't meet with your approval.
Like I say came here to see some other's ideas.

Well I had to put them somewhere, all of the cases had fire and smoke damage, So I hung them on the wall.
The "Finished" walls will include..... Wait for it.... Paint.
Yep that is right Paint on Concrete.
Sorry if it doesn't suit you. I will try not to lose any sleep over it.

Down the hall and around the corner is some other stuff... Again no "Finished" walls...
Don't like it? Oh Well...

Actually, I don't think it was intended to be backhanded. Welcome to the forum.

Not back handed at all! Was very serious, I do love it. I should have done that a long time ago.

And has Tim said, welcome to the club (forum).

Well my goal is to make it look sort of like the old Basement pool rooms.
Walls will be painted and the floor will be Stained and Sealed.

I have placed a few "art" pieces about the room, Photographs I took.
Art1_zps344122a4.jpg
Better.jpg
and a copy of the BWW Chicken from their "Get it to GO"
BWWscaredchicken.jpg

The Ceiling will probably be a dark suspended ceiling with an Embossed Tin Section over the billiard table.

The Billiard Table I bought was "incomplete" some of the apron skirting was missing or damaged or poorly made... but it was cheap and had a slate bed. $200
Ugly black, So I bought some Chrome Corner Miters and made the stainless steel skirting. Paid a bit to have a pro setup the table.

Matches the Air Hockey Table. (Wish I could have scored a Valley Air Hockey for what I paid for this one) Still a lot cheaper than the "Game" stores...

Bought the Valley Cougar 8 Dart machine off E-Bay Local, They even delivered it. Got it for about a third the cost of the "Game" stores.

TV is a Sony that I bought from a friend who needed $$

One cool idea is to not putting up a drywall or drop ceiling, but spraying the "ceiling" black. The duct work, plumbing, joists, canned lighting (if you put it in)...spray it all black. It sounds strange, but it looks really, really cool. And you don't have to worry about any issues with installing the ceiling or leaks damaging your ceiling.

Someone had mentioned that to me once and I didn't give it too much tought until I saw those photos. With the propensity for stupid leaks coming from my kitchen and their half @$$ job with piping, it might be worth it. Definitely gives it a cool look without spending a boatload on ceiling tiles or drywall.

Besides, if I don't like it, then it's an easy fix.... cover the darned thing with something.

BTW - I too love the fact that the dude above hung stuff on the cement. With as long as I have to wait until stuff gets done, I'm tempted to do the same so I can figure out if my memorabilia actually fits on the wall.

Finally got my pool table for my game room, I had envisioned an 8 ft table, shuffleboard table, and an electronic dartboard. But have decided to go with just a pool table and a small pub table. My game room is 19 x 15, it would be just to cluttered looking, had I jammed all those games in there. So I picked the one game I truly wanted and just made it a pool room. I have my (man cave) or "my apartment" as my wife calls it, broken down into 3 sections, pool room (19 x 15), office - Tv room (13 x 15), and home theater (22 x 13.6). Prior to buying a pool table, I had a bumper pool table in the room, which would allow me to fit the shuffleboard table. But it didn't take long to realize, that the bumper table just isn't fun playing by yourself, not to mention my family was bored of it within a week.

I have a 24x24 building would it be big enough to fit two 8ft pool tables comfortably and still have a little room for seating? What would be best for making it into a game room/man cave?

Here's our modest game room, it's outside the basement dedicated HT room.
  1. Pool table used from guy at work for $400, it's a Valley table with slate top, things a tank. In a few years I'll re-do the felt.
  2. Dart board with DIY cork backing zone, steel tip not soft tip - I hate those so much
  3. Table top foosball via Costco, I'd recommend others not go table top, go full size
  4. Futon added for sleepovers, kids love that
  5. Added a ping/pong table for 2013 Christmas, need to take pict/post it here later

That's a DIY wood shelf below also.
IMG_3953.jpg

I put ceiling stereo speakers in over the pool table
photo2.JPG

here's the DIY shelf being stained


Dartboard needed protection from steel tips damage to the electronic display, so I made a clear cover from plastic storage bin

That's a $75 sale ping pong top on top of the Valley Pool table, kids latest rage is playing ping pong tournaments, gets them off of mindcraft biggrin.gif
http://www.sears.com/sportspower-conversion-top/p-00601368000P?prdNo=6&blockNo=6&blockType=G6
I added some wood 2" x 4" blocks with felt pads for mid support, the top is flat, sturdy, and level now.

My house's basement has an open ceiling just like this, and I did not want to put in a ceiling for numerous reasons as well. I'm glad I found this idea! Thank you.

Would love a pool table.

My next house will hopefully be in a couple of years, and has a few pre-requisites. One of which is a game room / man cave / whatever you want to call it!!

I kind of thought this was a bit funny. I've always figured living rooms should be smaller, after all, there's a lot more going on in a game room.
