Yikes - watch out for interference affecting Broadband, WiFI, mobile coverage and radio reception / those things chuck out the worst EMI known to man.

Used to have 14 pins in my room, now there's 6 and very comfortable to amble around and play pool too. 14 was the absolute limit. I could stuff 1 or 2 more in, but I'm placing them around the office until I get my house pin area sorted at some point.

Also, added a gorgeous TZ since I took the photo.

I have 2 Toms in my workroom, plus Spidey and WCS coming in.

Currently got everything on a global on & off, make separate that 3 sections for Lights, Neons and Pins. It's pretty bright in there, the neons make a big difference - and white walls. Theres lots of room around the pool table although it doesn't show it.

Love the pool table. Wish I had room for one. I’d actually LOVE a full sized snooker table but that ain’t ever going to happen.

Always, always wanted a snooker table - the sad thing is they cost about the same as an average pin but the space you need for one is just huge.

You would be surprised how cheap they can be had for. I saw one on eBay with steel plate cushions, new cloth and rubbers sell for £500. That is a superb table for ridiculously low money. You wouldn’t even get a project Hurricane for that sort of money.

Precisely because no one has room for them . All coming out of of snooker clubs and working men’s clubs and no homes . Such a shame . Like you two I’d love one but it ain’t gonna happen . Love my old super league pool table though

Love my pool table in the games room thought about getting rid of it on numerous occasions even put double sockets flush with the floor underneath it in case it makes room for a few pins but I always change my mind,when people are round they all have a go at pinball because majority of them haven't seen one in years never mind play one but it is short lived on the other hand with the pool table I can't get them off it even the wives there worse than the men always saying one more game,nothing better than a game of killer music playing a good few beers and if you get knocked out early there's always pinball or arcade games to play what's not to like.

Finally fully moved in to my new place and I’m able to get a few more of the games setup here :)

I’ve still got space for one in the lounge....



The main games room is still the kitchen with Banzai Run next to the fridge....



And then a whole load of 80’s goodness plus the best pinball machine ever made!

I’ve decided that 6 is no good and maybe 8 can fit in the games room since no one is playing pool 24 /7 and it’s a case of moving my neons to another wall :) but 8 is the limit (even though I have 10)
