I did a search but didn't find a topic from it. Is there a thread for "Show Your Game Room Photos"?

If not, show them here. I'm curious as to what is a "Game Room". I have a den with an electronic dart board, a plasma TV with my video games hooked up to it with 5.1 surround, and a pinball machine, with space for a second pin to be purchase shortly.

Outside the den is the family room with the pool table, a 55 inch HDTV, a foosball table, and the kegorator (sp). Does this room combo make a "Game Room", or is it like the home theater, where you have to have a dedicated room? (I do have a dedicated theater, upstairs).

That sure sounds like a game room to me. And it only seems right that you start the ball rolling with pics of your own. Pretty sure that will inspire others to share. Mine will be completed by SB Sunday and I will post mine as well.

It's like a finger, pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger, or you will miss all the heavenly glory...

I just moved into our new house a month ago. It's not up to speed yet for a photo shoot.

If I find my compact flash reader, I'll try to get some photos this weekend.

Good luck with getting yours done!

DinoT, nice rooms you have setup there. I have a couple of questions about your space. What are the room domensions of each of your spaces? Also I noticed that you have some type of touch screen monitor in you bar area, what's its function?

Here's a few pics of mine. In some of the Pics you can see some of my movie props and autograph pics. I built the bar, Mame machine, and the poker table. I made the table so it could fold and be moved to the side when room is needed. Sorry for the pic size. I couldn't figure out how to make them thumbnails until clicked on.

str1der,

Love the Poker Table. Is it DIY or did you purchase it? Love to see plans or location where you got it.

Those are some nice rooms! Hopefully I'll be able to get some shot up of my room(s) this weekend. I have the photos, but I need to by a reader to get the off the cards and onto my computer.

My "Game Room" is my basement. The part of the basement that contains all the games is not finished, but I really like it the way it is.

Wow, you have a lot of toys. You have more stuff than me.

That's going to be a pain in the butt to move all that stuff out though when you finish off that part of the basement.

Bernie,
Thanks for the comments. My arcade room is 12'x17', my Home Theater is 21'x13' and my bar is 18'x12'. The touchscreen on my bar table is a Megatouch Vibe running Force 2005.5 software. It is basically a game machine.
You can find out more about Megatouch at http://www.meritind.com/

str1der,

Very cool, I really like the folding poker table. I'm looking for a slot machine. Can you tell me where you got yours?

I've got some catching up to do, I see. I've got the dedicated HT room, game room with pool table and bar. I'm putting in a 42" LCD in the bar this weekend as well. One of my next projects is build a poker table (top to fit over an existing table). I also want to build a MAME machine. Here's one of my albums with pictures.

Catching up right.... That looks awesome. Wish I could actually dedicate my family room to a theater like that. I've got a nice 65" Hitachi HD in there but wish I could commit it to a theater like yours.

Thanks str1der. Took me about 18 months to finish out the basement. What I mean about catching up was all the different gaming machines these guys have... I'd love a slot machine, pinball machine, MAME machine... starting to run out of room though. Don't get me wrong, the room is gonna make for a great Superbowl party this weekend!

All the rooms look great! Keep those pictures coming. Here are a few pictures of my gameroom. Unfortunately the room is only 10' x 12'....I can only fit 6 pinball machines in there at one time. So the collection is changing all the time (the pictures are from different years). There is also a dart board in the room....and a couple beer cans as decoration.

This room is in basement, right next to theater with is 18' x 20' and there is a bathroom right around corner (just past the Temple of Doom signed poster that can be seen in one picture).

Please pardon my photography, but here are some pics of my basement gameroom. First some "before" shots:

Before

Presently, it's looking quite a bit better:

Entry
The neon says "GAMEROOM" (to eliminate any doubt) Below the sign, barely visible, is a Megatouch Force Radion. The entertainment center contains the equipment that's been retired from my livingroom setup.

ToM and TSPP

Pool table and MAME cocktail

Dartboard

Man Jim, you have all the pinball machines I'd love to have but can't afford. How many years did it take to get that collection?

Thanks! I started buying pinballs about 3 years ago. My side door to fame is the fact that my ToM is the one featured in most of the ipdb.org photos.

str1der - Where did you pick up the black stands that two of your pachislos are sitting on? I've been looking for something like that for my Speed Racer.

Okay, I FINALLY took some photos of my "gameroom". We just moved into the house, a few months back, but we are finally getting things unpacked and it's almost a home. I still need to paint the theater room and hang some pictures.

Anyway, I don't have a gameroom, I have rooms with game/fun type stuff in them. I couldn't find a house with a basement for a good price, which is what I wanted so I could have a full dedicated gameroom. So, I just used different rooms for different things.

All photos are here....http://tbas2k.com/Gameroomweb/

For those that don't like to click on links, some photos are below.
