I need a name for my arcade room. I want to make a nice sign to hang in the room. I will post pictures tonight so you can come up with a name that fits.

RULES:

I choose the winner.

It has to be appropriate. I have families with young children over all the time. Feel free to blast away with off color suggestions anyway. I like to be entertained.

It can't have the word Arcade  or -cade anywhere in it.

The winner gets a laser etched solid oak plaque with their name on it. I can design it however you like.

Thunder Dome.   ;D

In honesty. Naming stuff is hard. Are there any particular characteristics that stand out about your arcade? I find that sort of thing brings out the best names.

Just a personal example - This summer I fixed up a boat. Here were the facts.
  • The boat is brown and tan
  • It is small and scruffy looking
  • I spend a lot of hours working on it after midnight
  • I had some serious concerns about dropping it in the water for the first time.
  • The boat was from the early 80's

For that reason, I named the boat "The Wet Mogwai". Right now, I can't imagine a more appropriate name.

Ok.  Since this is family friendly you can connotate it with the Bible and call it Noah's Arcade.  I know it has arcade in the title but if you rap about it and make it fun, it should draw people in.  For the rap I was thinking about the following:

Come bust a move where the games are played, it's chill, it's fresh, it's Noah's Arcade.  Whaddya think?

If I recall correctly, isn't the room wood paneled?  Noah's Arcade works, but I think that's an interesting juxtaposition of religion and violent video games.

QuarterStick Arcade Lounge.  The logo is a roll of quarters with a lit fuse, like a stick of dynamite.

EDIT: original suggestion violated the no -cade provision

The previous owners turned their garage into a den. That is the arcade room. The house was a fixer upper sitting on 5 acres. They were making mortgage payments on their credit cards when I made an offer. The house was pretty rough when I moved in, but I put a lot of work into it and it turned out nicely.

Wow 5 acres!  I hope you don't have to mow all of that.  My lot is 50'x120' (0.14 acres haha).  I bet my taxes are higher though.   :angry:

You did a great job on that room.

If/when I ever do a dedicated arcade room I'm going to call it "The Pit"  Seems appropriate as most are in basements.  Feel free to steal that one. 

Though judging by the pics, "The Wooden Nickel" might be more appropriate.

Yup I mow the whole thing. My mower has a 46 inch deck and I have an offset tow behind that is 48 inches. It takes a little time, but I get a lot of thinking done while I mow.

My taxes are pretty reasonable. My neighborhood is zoned for agriculture for some reason.

Can you shoot a video of the room? I need it in 4K and with great audio that will sound even better pumped through a 21,000W system.  Don't worry if its a bad video, my multimedia rig makes everything better.

This is my way of inviting BYOAC into my arcade. You knuckleheads are part of my life. Some of you I have met in person. Most of you I would like to meet in person. This thread is acheiveing both of it's purposes for me.

Yeah, I know you didn't want Arcade in the name, but I figured it was an easy way-for-the-A. The initials could be a secret that your guests wouldn't pick up on.

Remember the old Looney Toons "Eat at Joe's" bit?  How about "Game at Mike's"  It'd make for a great faux neon sign with an arrow pointing to the door.

whatever you name it, can the tagline be "Wood you like to play a game?"
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

As for a name, The Lumber Yard and then Malenkos' tagline "Wood you like to play a game?"

It would also work for a mens only bar, but thats a diff type of wood workin.

I just leave them up. At one of my parties the kids asked me to turn them on. I said it's not Christmas time. They didn't care. They love them so they go on at every party. I plan to replace them with RGB LEDs eventually.

I've upgraded to those led moving spotlights you're supposed to shine on the side of your house. They get really cheap after holidays. I just put one on top of a machine and point it at the ceiling. Kids love that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

I used your suggestion and did the same thing. I mounted it to the back of my machine - looks cool.

Alpha Centuri is the winner. I really liked Time Tunnel. My daughter liked Mom's Arcade, but she would have tweaked it to Mom's Place. My son just isn't ready for that. He liked the Wooden Nickel. We all agreed on Alpha Centuri. It sounds very '80s. It fits in with all of the Centuri cabinets I own.
Congratulations Vigo. PM me when you decide what you want on your plaque.
I plan on ordering custom tokens to go along with the sign. I can throw a couple tokens in the mail to any participants that want them.

Okay. We have a winner. Now it is time to design the actual sign. It will be CNC cut and hand painted. I will also need a logo version that is token friendly.

I am going to need a lot of help with this. So buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride.



This is my first rough idea. I just printed out a Centuri logo and roughed out the Alpha part with a red pen. I figured there would be a way to add a space ship or something to the logo to give it more life. It needs a good color scheme and a background.

Feel free to post ideas here. If this first idea sucks just tell me.

Yes Jennifer. You missed the point entirely as usual. I am looking for sign design ideas right now.

I never use Photoshop for creating CNC friendly vector files.

Put out your cigarette, open the curtains, and try to keep up.

That is pretty snazzy. It would look great on a token.

I will have to play around with it some. Thanks for the input.

I am not sure if I want to go all angular or more cartoony.

Alpha Centuri T shirts have been ordered.

After Zapcon I will be ordering Alpha Centuri tokens.

I am also printing up Out of Order and bathroom signs with the AC logo on them.

I need to get professional. I had the local food pantry ask me about hosting a fund raiser. I need to talk to my attorney and my insurance agent about liability.

I am debating on what to do about the sign for my arcade room. My CNC is out of commission right now. I have projects for people that I have to do by hand. I don't necessarily mind, but the CNC speeds things up quite a bit. The sign is on the back burner right now.
