Nothin like drinking some Old Milwaukee and playing bubble hockey.

Awesome it reminds me of the bar in my town that used to have a neo geo.

That's freakin' awesome, man. I, too, will have my own game room in the near future.

So kick ass.
Love the bubble Hockey I want one so bad.
The Lidstrom jersey kicks ass, as does the retired numbers you have hanging up there by the bar.

I am jealous. Looks like the best place to watch a Wings game next to being @ The Joe.

That was a $45 craigslist find. Granted it need some fixing up and and some TLC, but still a pretty good deal.


Thanks for all the kind words everyone. It was a lot of work, but I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. I'm excited to get a fridge and stove down there behind the bar, but it looks like due to some financial restraints that's going to be later than I had hoped. Plan is to put a 27" crt tv on top of the fridge for watching from the bar and I'm going to hook up a Gamecube with some wavebirds for game playing from the bar as well.

Hi King. I followed your sig link back to this thread.

Seeing your Sega TV - central TV - Nintendo TV setup has inspired me.
I'm going to hook up the rf out of my Genesis to the antenna connection on one old TV, and do the same with my SNES rf out to the coax input on another old TV. Then I'm going to send the composite signals from all my systems (including the aforementioned Genesis and SNES) to a switchbox connected to my central TV.

My gameroom is always a work in progress, but it's almost good enough now that I can take pictures again.

I have that right now myself. On some systems like the N64 there is only one "out", so you have to switch it on the back of the system, but the 64, SNES and Gamecube all have the same hook up, so that makes it work easier actually. I can play any of the Sega or Nintendo systems on the wide screen or their CRT setups and like you were saying with the coax and rf out, I can broadcast the NES on two TV's at the same time if I wanted to. I'd love to see pictures when you get yours setup.

Excellent. Can you crack that puppy open and add detail to the players? I can picture a 1932 Red Wings vs Rangers set up work for your setup.

I was actually thinking about painting the blue team white and having Old School Wings(Howe, Lindsay, Abel, Kelly, Delvechio, Sawchuk) vs New School(Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Konstantinov, Osgood, maybe Pavel or Hank). So, yes you could add detail, just haven't gotten around to it if I'm going to at all. The outside sides were originally a dull gray and I painted it red already.
