- 7 ft air hockey
- 42" HD TV
- Wurlitzer 1015-CD
- Plachislo Machine (w/LCD)
- Jagermeister Machine
- several beer neons, and sports memorablia covering the walls)

downstairs:
- WWF Superstars
- Hit the Ice
- Boot Camp

- Contra
- Super PacMan
- Gimme a Break (Sente Pool)

The unit can be used with only 1 bottle, you don't have to do all three.  But hey, before we get off topic, let's let him explain!

Yeah, though it's still using up a lot of electricity/space for one chilled drink when you can put a bottle in the freezer.  I'm thinking he may have something else.

I really like Who Dunnit, it has great minigames and use of the DMD.  That telephone shot is just about the right difficulty, hard enough to take some skill but not so hard that it makes you want to burn the machine.

Doesn't that take up way more power than it's worth to keep soda cold?

i would think this wouldn't be that good of a hobby if we cared about power consumption.  If we can afford to power up entire game rooms, i doubt a soda or Jagermeister machine is gonna break the bank.

The Jagr machine doesn't take up much power, keeping a couple of little bottles cold.  A real soda machine, on the other hand, can add much $$ to your electric bill.  It consumes a LOT more power than a little fridge.

I really wouldn't know.  I tend to only run the coke machine when we have guest or my nieces are over.  The coke machine use the old glass bottles and they are NOT cheap.......so we don't drink them a whole lot.  Still trying to find a decent beer that will fit the machine........then it will be on longer! :laugh:

If you're a Corona fan, I know that they sell six-packs of the small glass bottles.  I'm not sure if they're the exact same size as the coke bottles though.

Alas.....I am not.  I tried squeezing some Saint Arnolds in but that didnt work.  And for those in DFW, I wish I could get some Rahr in there too!

Did you try Jack Daniels cordials?  They're roughly the same size as a glass coke bottle.

no crap, and I dispute the listed alcohol content.

Maybe you could try those, and some 375ml bottles.  It doesn't have to be beer!  Have a hard liquor machine.  Fill it with schnapps.

I would like a schnapps vending machine.... ooh, and some Goldschlager.

Very envious of those of you who posses the wonderful GALAGA cabinet....

I myself own these :

Cruisin USA sitdown (single)
Criss Cross (2player trivia game, built in UK but with Swedish questions)
Championship Spint
Gauntlet II
Xybots
Marble Madness
Neo Geo Candy (25"monitor)
"Aleph" wallmounted 14" cabinet
2pc generic cabinets, one vertical and one horisontal (brand new monitors coming next week for both these)

and Rally X in bad shape now but needing only sidearts and a litte work, Ive got the rest...
And you're envious of someone with a Galaga?  :o

Galaga is almost everything madness talks about, so I'm not surprised he's envious on you who have one of those.  ;D
They are extremely rare over here in Sweden, so it's not that easy to get one - I would say it's close to impossible...

Snooker Pool Table
Ping Pong Table
Fooseball Table (From Italy)

Video Game Room

Atari 2600 (10+ Games)
NES (96 Games)
SNES (70 Games)
N64 (31 Games)
Gameboy (10 Games)
Gameboy Color (3 Games)
Gameboy Advance (6 Games)
Gamecube (20+ Games)
Sega Master System (10+ Games)
Sega Genesis (3 Games)
Sega GameGear (10+ Games)
Playstation 2 (20+ Games)

I have NO ARCADE GAMES.... Just MAME on my computer.

Damn it that needs to change! Right now im designing a 4 Player deluxe panel thats gonna ---smurfette--- slap my bank account.

I can't find a good condition arcade game for under $200 in the Toronto area. $200 isnt too much money, but thats my student budget limit!

As of yesterday my gameroom (aka living room) now contain these games:

Point Blank
Operation Wolf 3
Power Drift
Nevada Magic - currently running my vertical PCB's
Nevada Magic - currently running my horizontal PCB's

and my pride and joy - Gauntlet with both Gauntlet and Gauntlet II PCB's.

Oh, and my kitchen are housing two wall-mounted small cabinets that are in "project-state". One of them will be a generic cabinet, and the other one I'll use for MAME just to try out games before I buy them as PCB's - I'm not much for MAME myself.

Here's an old picture of one of my Nevada cabinets for those of you who haven't heard of them.
I also threw in an old picture of one of my wall-mounted cabinets.
