There is a lot to be said for having enough fun things to do at home that your family has quality time together and you know your teenagers are safely at home. One way to do that is to have one or more game tables and practice family game night at least once a week. The key is to select game tables that are enticing. That can mean the right blend of fun and challenging so that playing them remains exciting from week to week. It is also a good idea to ask your family what they believe they would enjoy. Here are a few types of game tables that could be perfect for your family:
- Air hockey tables- These game tables have been around since 1969 when they were developed by three employees at Brunswick Billiards. This is a great option for families with younger children, as those of nearly any age can catch on to playing fairly quickly, and they’ll enjoy it even as they become teenagers.
- Foosball tables- Although foosball was not introduced and trademarked in the U.S. until 1962, a foosball-type parlor game has a been around far longer than that, although nobody can quite agree on just how long. What people can agree on is that the game is a lot of fun and brings out a competitive spirit while being fairly physical for some fun exercise. (Just don’t tell your kids that!)
- Ping pong tables- If you ever watched the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, you have a pretty good idea just how much fun and competitive ping pong can be. The nice thing about ping pong tables is the ability to adjust the table so that a person can play by themselves or play with another person. With enough practice, you could be grooming an Olympic champion!
- Pool/billiards tables- One of the advantages of having a pool table as one of your game tables is that there are so many different ways to play. It will take years to master the game too, so it is likely that this game table will be enjoyed for years to come.
