Thanks everyone! I am glad that you guys like it! I wanted to get this thread up sooner but I had to wait to get the "travel" posters first before the room was complete. I think they really make the room.

It's on its original stand but with the tilt on the headunit all the way forward facing down. It was the only way to make it fit on any of the shelves without being completely out of place.

Gorgeous setup and yes the posters really bring the room together. Is your cocktail a stock Ms Pac/Galaga or do you have any of the mods for it?

Keeping it all original with just Ms Pacman and Galaga. It has everything original and is ready for paid play except a coin box. I would love to have it setup where both sides for two players are accessible but that will have to wait until I have a larger game room.

WOW! :shock: Now that is a beautiful game room. I love how clean and organized it is. Where did you get the frames for your posters from if you don't mind me asking?

fantastic!

I haven't taken pics of my game room yet because I was waiting for the renovation. We'll be painting and prob getting some new furniture in the next couple months. Funny thing - I'm planning a similar shade for the walls.

I have to ask - WHERE did you get the posters?

Also, Guinness rules.

Again thank you for all of the nice comments. I am really glad you guys like what I've done so far. Most of you have contributed to the contents of the room through sales and trades so I am glad to show y'all where they have lovingly been placed and enjoyed.

Its not easy to tell in the pics but from left to right I have as 3DSXL, original GB, Teal GBC, Front lit modded GBA, NES GBASP, GBASP 101, GB Micro, Cobalt DS Lite, GP2X (cps2 arcade on a handheld is awesome!), NGPC, God of War PSP 3000, Modded PSP 1000, Sega Nomad. The only other handheld not displayed is my GameGear just because I don't have the room or really ever play it.

Hobby Lobby. Every other week they sell them for 50% off in store and they are great quality!

http://www.posterrevolution.com . Shopping there was a great experience. Great prices, fast shipping, and good selection. The quality was way higher than I was expecting for $7 posters. And I agree, Guinness does rule!
