Small Space – Killer Gameroom

Just saw a video posted by KLOV user Khabbi showing off his completed Tampa, FL gameroom. Despite a small space to work with, Khabbi is able to pack as much fun and ambiance as possible into a simply stunning game room. With the amazing collection of rare games such as Quantum, Major Havoc, Reactor and others, along with the blacklight carpet and posters – what’s not to like?

Some argue that the quarters are too cramped, but Khabbi responds to naysayers –

“It’s actually not as tight as it looks in the video, there’s room for someone to be on a game and for someone to get by the person on the game, and that’s about it… but it indeed does maximize the space.

Before I had the pinball machines in there there was a lot more open room, and I had the Reactor (smaller cab) by the front door as you walk in then all the walls full of games, and it worked great and there was a lot more room.. but my goal was to maximize the space and put everything I could in there… and I have too many games that I love to leave anything out.”

As if the rare games weren’t enough, make sure you check out the LED upgrades made to the pinball machines. Iron Man looks amazing! And lastly, Khabbi takes us on a trip to AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT GAMEROOM!! Oh, and wait, what are those titles? I think I see a Mortal Komba….whoa! Mortal Kombat, MKII, MKIII, AND MKIV!!!

I think we found our first Gameroom Junkie! Great Job Khabbi!
