Up Your Game Room

Up Your Game Room 800 598 GAD Vending

A home game room can be as simple as the niche under the stairs or as elaborate as you can imagine.

These are some of the ideas you should consider:

  • What kind of space do you have? 
    • Basement, attic, garage, or unused dining room.
    • Adding a three season room.
  • How much space does my favorite game need? 
    • Darts require a 5′ wide x 11 ‘ long to safely play.
    • For an average pinball machine dimensions are 29″ wide x 76″ tall x 56″ deep.
      • Make sure you can fit the machine through the door and turns in the staircase.
    • Rule of thumb for shuffleboard is to add 2′ to each side of the table plus 3′ at either end to the dimensions of the table.
    • Pool Table minimum space is 14′ x 18′. (Yes, GAD has commercial grade pool tables too.)
  • How should I decide what game to buy?
    • Personal taste.
    • Who’s going to play? Adults, kids, mix?
      • Do you want all the kids in the neighborhood?
      • Do you want to be the entertainment spot for all your friends?
    • Space limitations.
    • Team vs Individual play.
  • Relax the Space
    • You should consider where the TV’s are going.
    • Sofa or other relax space.
    • Bar or fridge.
    • Consider a basketball station or other games to play between machines.
    • Make a “circuit”. Create a flow to compete with your family and friends around the room.
  • Lighting
    • Lighting can set the mood. Create excitement. Add dimension to the games.
    • Many don’t think of lighting and do a last minute rush job, but don’t! You’ll want to see the silver ball, darts or pool angles to completely enjoy your games.

At GAD we’ve seen many amazing game rooms – and we posted a few ideas on this article for you to consider. And, we are happy to help you answer the preliminary design questions before you commit to your project.

Bonus – between now and 11/22/2022 we are giving a free shaker motor, installed, to any new purchase of home pinball.

Updating Family Game Night May Save Your Sanity

Updating Family Game Night May Save Your Sanity 2048 1786 GAD Vending

Spending more family time sounded like a great idea – 2 years ago. But as COVID drags on, it’s time to up your game night!

Break Up the Boredom and Up Your Game Night

While video games on the TV  can be fun, they generally don’t engage the entire family. Why not change your gaming to match your family dynamic?

Here are a few suggestions:

Table Classic-Cade

This is the perfect family game for all ages, genders and skill levels. Included in the Classic-Cade are over 60 classic games. And – you can set to play solo, one-against-one or as a team. Gathering around the Classic-Cade table version is fun for the whole family!

Games include: Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Mario Bros, Centipede, Galaga, Pong and so many more!

The Classic-Cade comes available in a table or console version. Choose the configuration right for your game room.

 

Pinball

Pinball is the ultimate, classic game.

Choose from titles like Star Wars Comic Pin, Jurassic Park Pin and TMNT for younger audiences. Check out Godzilla, The Mandalorian and Avengers for a junior high school age audience. And, consider Rush, Led Zeppelin and Guns ‘N Roses  for teenagers. Of course, for adults just pick your favorite band, movie or comic hero! We have pinball to satisfy all your family game fun.

Ask us about connecting your Pinball game to the internet. Stern’s new Insider Connected allows games to be interconnected for play across the internet, new features and chances to win fun prizes. Jersey Jack pinball is also connected for tournament play or cross play with your friends.

Golden Tee

 Golden Tee Home Edition was designed after the worldwide hit game Golden Tee. It is built for home and made for free play. 

The Home Edition comes programmed with unique and imaginative courses, game play with real time rivals like John Daly, and lots of customization options. 

Stay connected with friends and family remotely! With an internet connection – not only can you compete in online tournaments, but you can create your own private contests. Pick the players—between two and 100(!!!)—select the course, the stakes (yes, you can play for money if your state allows it) and control everything about this specific content. Play your buddy in Albuquerque from the comfort of your man cave. You can create it all on the GT Caddy, our free mobile app available for the Apple and Android device.

Try these games with your family –

Closest-to-the-pin: Get as close to the pin as you possibly can in this fast-paced 9-hole game. It’s the perfect game mode for groups and parties, or players in search of a fun, quick fix.

Skins: A Home Edition Exclusive! Play your buddies for bragging rights one hole at a time. Skins, played with 2 through 4 players, is not about total score, it’s about beating your opponents on as many of the 18 holes as you possibly can!

Darts

Think of darts as a board tacked on the wall? How the game has changed – and improved! Electronic darts has upped the game with electronic scoring, tracking player ratings, and internet tournaments. Play solo, solo in internet tournaments, as a family or remote against your friends!

Our new favorite electronic darts game is the G3 Galaxy Fire featuring:
