War Room & Man Cave--Send Us Your Game Room pictures!

Everybody needs a STAVKA, a "Wolf's Lair," or some other place to gather wargaming friends to play:

Walters War Room, circa 2007.

Admittedly, I am most impressed with Bert Schneider's Man Cave/War Room decor seen here and his recent addition of camouflage curtains here.  I confess to having had my own "War Room" to play games with friends in (I can comfortably fit six, eight in a pinch) for about the last 13 years.  I've also seen some great photos on Board Game Geek and occasional shots of J.R. Tracy's gaming sessions at his place which always make me a little envious.  We've seen a lot of good game rooms over the years here and elsewhere, but have never gathered them up into one place.  Well, now it's time to do it.  Show us your man cave/war room!

Looks like there's a thread on this same topic over at Board Game Geek with some very nice pictures!  Check it out here.

Let's see, Wade Hyett has around 3,000 games, so I possibly am not worthy, indeed!  J.R. Tracy has over 5,000 games--and his war room pictures have to be seen to be believed.  Check it out on his page--there's photos of it on there.  Don't think I've seen anybody with more than that.  And I though culling my collection down to 1,100 still left me with too many!

With 1,100 games, it is well enough to call Eric a wargamer certainly...there are at least 220,000 counters to punch!!

You call yourself a wargamer? You do NOT nearly have enough games!

There's something to be said, Stephen, about expeditionary war rooms in such cases.  We've all been there at one time or another.  When I was stationed overseas, that's how it was for me as well.

That bookcase is nothing but ASL stuff.  Below the bookcase games are all the boards and a blank "soapbox-style" box that has all the markers and terrain counters (and overlays).  Underneath that are the HASL games that came in flat boxes.  Underneath THAT are all the ASL Journals and Annuals, plus a bunch of other ASL mags.  Yeah.  I'm running out of room.

Brant--you'll get over your full-on inferiority complex when you beat me at a game of our choosing played in this room!  LOL!  Oh, and you can stop calling me Sir.  I know it's hard.  But you'll learn.

I now have a full-on inferiority complex.  Thanks! :)

Mine is a work in progress at this stage...we have been building an extension for nearly 12 mths and have so far moved 10 times...hopefully early 2011 we'll all be back under the same roof. In the meantime I'm consoling myself with Vassal and smalish games ( like Condittiere).


Nice set up Eric, very organised and good to see the ASL stuff prominently featured.

Impressive...and very neat.

Another shot of the circa 2007 War Room--it has changed a little since this time, but I'll post those pics way later.  Note more of the old SPI games up to the right.  The door leads out to the hallway which is full of military history books...the whole first floor is full of them.

I must admit, I've got 20 footlockers of games in my garage that I want to keep and don't want to get rid off.  Stuff like the Balkoski FLEET series, some Schettler East Front games in the WINTER STURM series, and much else besides.  I know I won't play them but I don't want to get rid of them either.  So they are not up in the war room but kept safe in the garage.  At least I have them in the same geographic locations--and I don't have to go somewhere else (out of state) or some "distant warehouse location" to get to them!
