Quite some time ago, I decided to convert the "storage" room in our basement into a nice gaming room. First I thought my wife wouldn't allow me, but surprisingly, she found it a wonderful idea. Definitely married the right woman :-)

The room was full with old furniture and stuff I used when we built the house five years ago. It took me quite a while to clear everything out. Unfortunately, I was also the last remaining room in our house which was still in a quite unfished state:




Finally, I completed my little project and we already used the room for a first gaming night. It is just wonderful to have a dedicated room for gaming! I often play solo games and it gives me the opportunity to leave a game on the table and finish it the next evening.

I’m also very happy that my two little kids use it, as well. This really makes me happy.

Most of my relatives probably think I’m mad to dedicate an entire room just for gaming, but who cares :-)







For storage I bought some Kallax shelves. There is still room for another 4x4 shelves, which allows me to still buy some additional games :-)

Do you have a gaming room, as well?

I would like to have so much space that I don't have to use every cubic centimetre to store a game ... My games are in my room and because of the lack of space I sometimes have to put several games in the same box and to store empty boxes the matriochka way.

What is the tubular device on the top of the Kallax ?

The device on the Kallax is my reflector telescope.

Mad? Hardly. If your actions are "Mad", mine are certifiable. Nice game room BTW, congrats.

Bloody hell, you built an entire house in your garden. Wow, that is so cool :-)

Edit: Just saw the amount of games you own. 5000+ - that what I call a collection.

It looks really cool. If I lived closer to Bavaria, I'd certainly drop by and play a game with you

Ok, I feel dumb now ... I have in mind the image of telescopes fully "deployed".

The result is good but, as often, because of the location of the room it seems quite dark/artificially lighted.

There is a small cellar window, but you have to turn on the ceiling lamp. Otherwise it is too dark. However, the light of the ceiling lamp is actually really nice and soft. I haven't heard any complains, yet.
