Pins in 'normal' rooms of the house

Any of you guys got a pin or pins in rooms other than a dedicated games room? The reason I ask is my GF has stated a few times that she'd be cool with a pin in our open plan kitchen/dining/conservatory area. however this comes with a very strict caveats on what game is allowed. Dolly Parton and Flash Gordon okay, Tron not so much etc. So yeah, post pics if you do and suggest other pretty looking titles I might be able to sneak in.

Too cramped. Used to be my office, will have to get the games room done (watch out garage) as I'm certain they will start breeding soon and giving birth to full sized offspring - what would a Hobbit x Houdini produce?

You have to have a great wife 🤭😋 I have a small open plan ground floor with an arcade machine and pinball at the end, although, the wifes solution to avoid seeing it was to crochet a blanket for it "lol', it's a big commitment for floor space unless you have an area that's dead, they dominate the room, if like me it's open plan make sure you have sky and a second TV in a bedroom 🤭 and allow the Mrs to buy what hobby stuff she wantsPXL_20211015_202818518.jpg

😂 Now that's funny, to he honest the crochet cover was a blanket, I needed something to protect it from the kids and the all black covers online are rather depressing, it just happened to be big enough to cover it. When I had my star trek she had started to crochet one with the logo on it but then I swapped it 😶

Have my machine in our open plan kitchen/living room; it's like that space was meant for a machine.....😉

Even though before it arrived I'd measured and showed my other half with a tape measure how much space it'd take up, there was a bit of eye rolling when it turned up.
It's working out o.k though:thumbs: - only thing is, due to the volume, I mostly play when she's out or hanging out in another room (unless she plays herself, which so far has been short lived)
When we finally gwt round to having a house warming it'll be switched on for sure though!😎

Understanding Wife is the reoccurring theme, I found moving pins into the living room when no one was looking ended up in being offered the dining room as a games room ;)

My pride and joy in our kitchen/dining/family room. The room was built last year, and this space had been planned to take a vintage kitchenette. A great deal of understanding was required to then put the pin here in its place! But everyone loves the pin and it gets so much use here which is great. It would be a pity to have it shut away in its own room.
Big thanks to Paul’s Pinz for the machine.

I don't think mine counts really, as you can see the house is a work in progress and they're only in the kitchen and utility until things progress and the pinroom gets done.
Saying that it's been over a year now and there's now three in the kitchen rather than two. For a total of five soon.


The original arrangement, before moving Rosie into kitchen to make room for a fifth one next to Road Show

Kitchen now, Road Show is still in the utility room with a gap next to it ready for Fish Tales (I thought two williams together would look nicer than FT in the kitchen and Rosie next to Road Show.)

We’ve got a similar issue. Our front room currently has two pins in it and we have no other space until/unless we get planning permission to build a basement (which could take years).

Thus, any further pins will have to live semi-permanently in front of our beautiful fireplace…
