Every great game room has to start somewhere.
I just moved into a new home with the perfect space for creating my own home arcade. It’s about 2/3 of a single car garage, enough space to have fun and do something creative. It’s only a Lynx in there now, but hopefully soon I’ll be making some big additions when I can track them down
The space is bigger than it looks, about 6’ x 20’ with 15 foot ceilings, so there will be lots of room for me to line up a few arcade machines in here and do something really cool above them. I was thinking about adding a projector to project movies and games on the wall above the arcade machines. I think it would be really cool to see some classic games running on a loop projected onto the wall above. I'll also make room for an arcade-style mini-fridge with the glass door stocked with my favorite drinks. I’d like for it to feel like a real arcade and still be an awesome addition to my home. Ever since I moved far away from my favorite arcades I’ve felt the need to create my own arcade at home just the way I want it. So here we go.
