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.

I actually like the arcade in its current state. I will probably never finish that area. OTOH if I expand the house, then perhaps I will make a seperate area for all my games which will allow expansion. Since I a pretty full now (I added another pinball recently so it is really packed in), I have to sell something to add another item, and I dislike the idea of selling anything.....

Here's my play room. I'd like to add another pinball and change up the color scheme (it really isn't that red...poor color management on the digital. It's more maroon with a darker tan)

By 'we' do you mean you and your dog?

My wife would never agree do that.

If you have WAF, god bless her.. you are one lucky man!

Yeah, my last theater had a dark red color scheme. It is hard to capture the true color even with a good camera.

What pin are you looking to ad?

Well, my wife really doesn't like any of the game or theater stuff. She does have three dogs though to keep her busy!

I would love to a pinball machine. but just can't bring myself to dropping over 1000 dollars. Are they incredibly hard to work on? If not, does anyone know anywhere in the Southeast that sells them cheap?

What type of pin where you looking to buy? Most of the ones made in the late 80's and newer will cost over $1,000. Some over 3k if it's a popular title.

To avoid shipping fees, try not to buy on eBay. Plus, you can't really see what you are getting. Go to Mr. Pinball on the Internet and see what is for sale in your area. You can do a search by machine or state to see what others have for sale.

Depending on the title and your experience with electronic, they can be very hard to maintain. The difficulty also varies by title. Even changing some burnt out bulbs can be a pain.

If you have issues with a pin, you can always pay someone to fix it for 50-100 per hour plus travel time. Or, you can learn to fix them your self with the help of other collectors in your area.

I'm only at the light bulb/switch problem ability right now, as I'm just a beginner. First pin was about four months ago. Once you buy one, you won't be able to stop until you have either no more money, or no more space. I've hit both of those limits. Well, I can maybe get one more.

Like most things in life, it seems as if my pinball tastes are quite expensive. The games at the top of my list are 1) No Good Go'fers (I'm a high school golf coach) 2) Simpson's Pinball Party 3) Addams Family 4) Indiana Jones 5) World Cup Soccer

Thanks for all the advice and I'm def. going to browse around. I'm trying to fill my 3rd bedroom with games (Mortal Kombat II, NBA Jam, etc...) and a couple of pins. On a teacher's salary (and a girlfriend about to be in med school), I think its going to take longer than I would like.

So in honor of the thread(no picture), I have one game NFL Blitz Gold/NBA on NBC in a 10 x 10 room.

@chiliman .. Youre wall unit is outstanding !

I dont have a dedicated space to play but I own several machines and a couple of pins [ @ reedl one is a Genesis Pin, never seen anyone else who has one till now ] that reside in storage until I get back to living in a house vs an upstairs apartment thats only 655sf

I do keep a Capcom cab that I build up for my Playstation back in 95, which is great for the emulated retro discs from Namco, Williams etc. Along with the one cab I will probably never give up A.P.B.






I have a nice little SNK SC19-4 [ where my screen name comes from ] with an MV1-F in it for MVS since Im low on space and need some variety now and then.

Its also Jamma so I swap vrious boards now and then.




A couple of older pics of the two here




The bicycle is a Proflex 857/956 [ seems like someone always asks ]
Console gaming gets done in the Bedroom on the pj



Hope I didnt bore you guys too much with my old junk

I rescued that from an arcade back in 1992

Other than the few parts of missing side art you can see in the pic its super clean, no fading burn marks etc .. A good amount of burn in, but too me anyway that gives it charachter and somehow enriches the experience while playing as its really only noticeable in attract mode


Ive got some better pics of it somewhere.

...

The Genesis is a very interesting machine in my mind. The two ramps are real cool, and fun to play, but the system-80 boards are a pain in the neck to keep running. It was almost as bad as the system-1 games. It is a strange machine in terms of features, and sounds, but fun to play.

Of course the under playfield "mummy" is a cool feature. I have constantly thought about something else to put in that area when the shield moves (perhaps a small doll or the like), but have not come up with something that would be cool enough.

My wife let me decorate this room, so I went a little overboard. Still adding to it as time goes on.

To me, gamerooms look better with a bunch of junk in them.

Too bad my room is to small to fill up with the fun stuff like that.

Do a search for Han Solo.

He has some awesome 'views', but some you may not appreciate as much as the male members of this forum LOL

Wow - that is actually very cool! Of course this is coming from a girl who owns a few master replica light sabers and the storm trooper helmet. :-)
Okay - found the other Han Solo thread. LOL.
While I do appreciate the loft and Solo, your right - I probably don't appreciate the other 'views' as much as most on this forum!!

Mark - are you on the GAPAS email list?

Wow, nice setups everyone. I love all the arcade and pinball machines. They really make for a great game room. I'm especially envious of all the pinball machines and have always wanted one, but no place to put it (and can't afford it). Maybe I'll look into a MAME machine... it might fit in the room better.

Here's a few pics of my room...
