Yep come to mine - Beers will be $15 for lite - the chips will be stale and the women will be real dregs... Hang on that IS my house!!!

Anyway, I'm in Spain, but you're more than welcome to come and look through the windows - heheheh.
The only bad news is that all this'll be a couple of months away still. In the meantime it's a dining table job, with my painted (and prepainted) figs and DF out on the bookshelves, getting moaned at by my more than better half.

Hello, my name is Bill and I have a DF problem... admission is the first step towards a cure.

I finished half my basement last year on my wife's request for a sewing room ':oops:'. Her bribe to me was that I could build my gaming room. ':D' Also agreement that munchkins aren't allowed. My munchkins, still not allowed, at least not until I am ready to teach them how to game.

Room has a wall of cabinets (east wall) for storage and counter top above holding bookshelves and home entertainment system (surround sound built in as I was putting up walls) for ambient/background noise. Refrigerator for cola and suds under cabinet top. 3'x6' Whiteboard is on south wall. Gaming table 42" x 84", has a tablecloth with a 1" square pattern, for my field battles. 8 comfy office chairs from Office Max. Next to table (South wall) is a narrow book shelf with gaming books and large desk with my computer - the GM HQ. Another book shelf with my DF stuff is on the West wall. Whole space is about 18' by 12', a little tight but nice set up.

Downsides, North half of room is spousal sewing cottage industry, no natural light and we have to go upstairs when nature calls. Anyone looking the wrong way at my sump is fed to trolls.

DF sets - 2 ea of cavernous passages and cavern set
Delux Room Set
Room and passage set
Octagonal Room
Wicked Additions 1
Advanced Builder
Assorted extra pieces
Many accessories from local craft store where 6 barrels are less than a buck and balsa wood flows also using the scrap flooring from the floor I put in as ballrooms, wood hallways (the barbarians put on socks and slide down them) etc.

Yeah, the office chair idea is a great one. Thus far my wife and I have the only good ones while the players have to suffer with folding chairs. I have invited them to bring their own though.

My wife and I bought a house last year, and when I first saw this room at the open house I knew it was going to be the game room! :D

Knight73,

It is Hard to Tell what the Dimensions are Like from the Pics< (Of the Room), but It Looks Like you have the Shelves squared away... Can't have too many Shelves for Game Stuff...

The Dimensions of the room are 15 1/2 feet long by 12 1/2 feet wide. Also my wife (one of my players) bought me a mini fridge, a mircowave and a bakers rack to hold it all plus a plastic bin that stands upright with 4 drawer for chips and other snacks :D :D :D

All right its off topic, but where in Ohio do you live? Are you going to Origins.

I live in Columbus.

Have to decide between Origins and saving up for more DF stuff, sigh

Knight73,

Sounds like you have a Good Game "Scene"... My Wife is also One of My Players now... It Took a Few Years to Bring her around, Buying her A Pretty Set of Purple-"Girly" Dice of her own Helped a lot... (She Now Collects All kinds of Purple Dice...<Grin>...) But the Point is Definatley that it is soo much easier when we Lifers have Family Support...<Smirk>... Plus More Frequent Conjugal Visits because there is no "Jealousy" of the Game...<EFG>...

WillOH,

I Hear ya... Currently Dragon Con is the Big Question in this Household...

Eat your heart out... heh heh

I have half of a large, nice, dry basement which includes three separate sections for gaming/gaming work & storage:

1.) Work bench nook complete with storage cabinets beneath the bench, on the left side of the bench and on the right also.

2.) A separate storage room for my terrain pieces which includes built-in three-tiered shelves on three of the walls.

3.) A large area for my two 5' x 3' folding tables which are setup all the time for gaming (except now that we're having a yard sale this weekend).

4.) A clean, full bathroom complete with shower, head, and sink.

Not sure what the total square footage is but I'll post some pictures after I get my tables set back up after this weekend.

I have a 20" color t.v. with cable hooked up in a corner, a full stereo system for our gaming music, nice padded fold-up chairs, and solid wood snack-trays for each gamer so they can keep their junk off of the gaming tables. I was going to buy a mini-fridge this year but then we decided that we're moving out of state so that's on hold till we settle into the new place.

Now the downside, we're MOVING in August/September so I'll be losing all of this wonderful, wonderful space. ::sigh::

I've already told my wife that one of the pre-requisites of whatever new place we wind up in is that the new house has to have a large basement, preferably finished and with a bathroom. heh heh

Dante,

Oh Man that's Harsh... But I Suppose it is Better to Have Loved (Or in this Case had an Ideal Game Scene), and Lost than Not to Have Loved at All Right? Of Course I Feel for Your Gamers too, after All You Have Now Spoiled and in all Probability Ruined them For Future GM's...<Chuckle>... At Least You Have the Resources apparently to Specify Future Gameing Requisites, and By All Means Send Us Pics to Drool Over...

Hi all, I just stumbed on this topic and, as any good gamer/home owner, I gotta tell you about my gaming room.

A 15'x24' dry and fully finished basement with a 4'x8' gaming table on one side. Shelves holding all of my books, figs, and toys on 2 walls. A large wardrobe for my DF. A work area for painting figs. And, my favorite part, the Geektown Tavern. Yup, a fully stocked bar with a full size fridge and personalized pint glasses (my wife is a saint and a gamer). We even found a brass rail at a salvage yard. Man I love my gaming room. :D
