NGG is a great game, although having just one pin it does get a bit boring and sometimes sits for a few weeks without a play. It isn't easy like some games and the 2 gopehers provide some amusing comments. Guests seem to like it. I have a sports theme in the room and my wife liked the looks of it (seal of approval) so it came home.

I have a few other pics of the shuffleboard posted in another Game Room Equipment thread. The cabinet was built by me and it went through a couple of revisions before I had it perfected. I had the playing board built by National Shuffleboard in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. The playing surface is 11' x 2' and is 3" thick solid maple. That width was the widest that I could have it made due to the width of the planer being used. I drove there myself and painted the circles and lines myself before they laid on the final coat of resin.

If you have ever seen the winter sport of Curling, that is what we play on it with the rings. To play a standard shuffle game we can use the lines. In Curling the objective is to be closest to the middle of the ring after the last rock is thrown. You count 1 point for each rock that is closer to the middle that your opponents clostest rock. It's fun because you might put up a center guard with your first rock then try to hide behind it. Take outs and bump backs are part of the strategy. We use the bumpers most times but can also play without them. Thanks for looking.

Here's my cave, and all the stuff that goes on in there...

The Bunker

I am working on two Mame cabinets (and a bunch of other things), but keep getting distracted by having parties.

I actually have a category of things I would like to fix, called "The Warts" I would love any advice I can get on fixing them!

Mike, what kind of set up is that? Looks like a big group gathering place for online games?

It's my basement. But, it is more than online games. I've had a recent boardgame fetish, and lots of stuff happens in The Analog Room as well. I have a whole section of the blog for Analog reviews and such, here.

Never see them, maybe, but, you always got to have a few of the classics hanging around for the game. I'd like to have (but don't own) a FRANKLIN MINT MONOPOLY complete with the stand and matching chairs (at least 2). Always a big monoploy fan and good player.

Guys and gals, keep 'em coming !!! Some nice looking rooms, also some that I could only dream of....

I'm glad to hear that you guys are interested in board games. I know this will sound like heresy, but after I got all my gear up and running, I felt like I wasn't really connecting with my friends and for that matter, my wife. Board games give back the face to face that movies and video games takes away.

If you guys want to try something other than Monopoly, check out www.boardgamegeek.com, and I'll keep putting up board game reviews/session reports in the Bunker Project Log.

I just put up a post about what The Analog Room was before. It is still sort of a game room... sort of. Hopefully you will find it amusing... my wife didn't.

OK, this is my first post. Here are some pics of my rec room. They are slightly out of date since I have 2 major additions. First, I put a 70-in-1 cocktail arcade table behind the sectional. I also put a custom made mahogany poker table between thw bar and the stairs. There is a 42" plasma and game system behind the doors next to the fireplace. It also has a surrond sound wired into the ceiling....

Looks like this. I may post a more extensive thread about this topic later. I moved it to behind the sectional.


BTW, I also converted one of the bedrooms next to the man-cave into a homegym:

You guys/gals have some NICE game rooms! I'm in the process of finishing a portion of my basement and turning it into a Theater/Game room. Burnswick 8' table was delivered last Friday. Here's a few pictures.





we still have a LOT of work to do like the Bar area, Wall posters & Paintings, Home Theater aka TV, Receiver, Speakers etc.......

Would also like to make a card table to fit over an existing standard table and maybe a pinball machine on down the road.

More pictures of my basement project can be found on my photobucket account listed in my signature. Click on Home Improvement and then Basement.

Thanks for the pictures guys, I have all kinds of ideas now!

Looking great so far Damon. It's nice and clean down there, you need to break that room in!

Good luck on getting the basement finished.

My project is officially designated a TH/Media/Game room. I just finished the HT and ran out of money right now for the "gamming" part but I still plan on putting dry bar, pinball and poker table in the back. The picture below doesn’t show how big the back area really is.

I'm new to the group. Found this forum after I got my Ultimate Arcade from Costco - midlife crisis purchase. Anyway, I tried to post my HT pics but I guess I need to have a few posts under my belt before I can do it but my signature should have the link to the pictures on flickr with notes attached. It's been a fun project so far and I splurged here and there on some things but doing things yourself can save quite a bit and we had a few tricks that saved a bunch of money. Most of what you see is mostly DIY. I built the HTPC myself.

Okay, I've not posted my gameroom for awhile, so this is an update. It seems to change all the time....

Wow, it looks pretty tight at the back to still want to get in a pinball, table, and dry bar. Maybe it's just the camera angle.

I think I have the same theater seats as you. Did you get the electric recline and buttkickers installed?

Thanks. I would advise anyone finishing a room look into buying bookshelves and framing them in. It is a whole lot cheaper than paying for cabinets and looks as good. With the Home Theater PC, I have all our movies stored on the hard drive so it's just a matter of using the remote to pick the movie you want to watch and it serves as a PVR as well. It, also, has all our music on there. My wife and I like to turn on the starlight ceiling and lounge on the couch listening to music. There are a few things unfinished that I have strategically excluded from the pictures - like the floor behind the bar and the stairs coming down to the basement. I, also, want to put something on the window like a roman shade to hide the window a little better. I have a fathom pinball machine sadly gathering dust in the garage that I would like to fix up and move down there some time. We are thinking of maybe putting a game room behind the hidden door in the back of the room.
