Welcome to my blog where I will document my progression building a personal pinball arcade!
I played pinball as a kid and teenager at the arcade, and as an adult I had always wanted one. It wasn’t until recently though that I discovered others had been building home arcades with multiple machines.
Multiple machines seems to keep things more interesting than just 1 in the corner. You can have multiple people over all playing together, running tournaments, etc.
A pinball is like a piece of modern art, and great to show off and demo to people.
When I moved into my current house out of our previous 2-bedroom apartment, having the basement available meant I could finally realize the dream. The basement is on the small side (older house), but I think it will do the job for now.
When I move, a proper games room will be a big feature we will be looking for in our next house.
