Incredible!  Soooo jealous....

I wonder, how long did it take to complete that project?

If me and my friends gamed in a room like that, nobody would pay attention to what was happening in the game, they'd be gawking at every little detail in the room all night...

What are the dimensions of the room and back closet area?


Its not a large room. Was a kids bedroom. The room is about 11'x13' and the closet is 4'x4'.

Probably could have done it in a fraction of that time but it seemed to go in spurts. Did all the shelves then the room sat for awhile. The stone took awhile because I wanted it to look "stacked" instead of the way the box showed which looked too planned. Once it started coming together at the end I worked alot of hours to have it done by GenCon so we could unbox all our D&D stuff.

Great Geebus!

And I thought MY game room was tops...!

Incredible.  How big is  your game crew?  That table actually looks kind of small.

Whats with the DM screens that look like a castle gatehouse?  Cool beans!  Make it yourself?

Hmm... I see youre not too far from Louisville...

I must make a pilgrimage to see your Mecca in person one day.


Live and in yo face!

Pretty sure it is the 4th edition promotional screen:

Pretty pricey from what I have seen as well.  I dont have a clue how many were made but I have seen a couple on Ebay and IIRC they went for around $300.

I just noticed this in one of the pictures:

I didnt even know they made this one.  I guess the Aquarius is a bit out of my video game collecting scope though.  :)

The blindingly overwhelming awesomeness of that game room simply cannot be expressed properly in any human language.  I cannot stop staring at these pics.

That collection is not too shabby either.   :D

Congrats, guys! You have achieved a new level of fame. Aaron Williams (of Nodwick fame) has this thread linked to on his site... at least until his next update.

Your next project should be to turn your kitchen and dining room into the Thieves World tavern :wink:

Thanks for the praise. No wonder my photobucket accounts bandwidth is already exceeded for the month.  :)

As to the DM's screen there were 220 made and were exclusive to retailers if they ordered alot of 4th Edition books from WOC.

Defjeff, you could always come to GenCon and meet alot of the Acaeum crew. Less than a 3 hour drive :)

The Mattel Aquarius is one of the shortest lived home computer systems of the 1980's but the AD&D Treasure of Tarmin game was state of the art at the time... so Mattel ported it over to the Intellivision.

Image

Image

What was interesting about this is that Mattel had already made an AD&D game cartridge a year before so in the advertisements for the Treasure of Tarmin game they gave the previously unnamed adventure a title "Cloudy Mountain" Volume 1... and Treasure of Tarmin was thus dubbed Volume 2.

Image

But as you can see by the advertisements for the original cartridge, the adventure had no name.

Image

Subsequently, all of the future releases of the original game bore the new subtext "Cloudy Mountain".

So if you collect all of the retro Dungeons and Dragons video games, you will need to have both releases of Intellivision's "Cloudy Mountain" to have a complete set.
