There are many different game tables on the market today, and when you purchase one you normally get all the basics that are needed to enjoy the game. Though the basics are great, sometimes it is not enough, you can get caught short when a group of people come over, or to enjoy the game better. Here are some accessories to consider for some of the more popular game tables available.
Air hockey - for this game you really only need hockey paddle and pucks. A pair of pucks in generally enough but an extra set is always nice. The game can be played in pairs, though doesn't work as well as other games. The best thing to have around is extra pucks. They get worn, and can easily be misplaced.
Ping Pong - of all the game tables, this one is great for larger groups. Round the World can be played with a small or larger group. The first time I played it, there must have been about 30 of us. It started out slow, but was fun just hanging out and watching as the game sped up. So extra paddles are always great to have on hand, especially if you have kids or a large family or group of friends. Extra balls are also necessary since the are also easily lost or damaged. An extra net with posts and clamps is also nice to have on hand.
Pool - this game probably has the largest assortment of accessories than all other game tables. It is always good to have 6-8 pool cues on hand, and a rack of some type to keep them in good condition. Cue racks come in different sizes and styles. There are basic styles that hang on the wall, or more deluxe ones that stand on the floor. The larger, floor models often have space to also hold a triangle, chalk and the pool balls. One triangle is usually enough, but plenty of chalk is always good to have on hand. A bridge or two is also nice for making those difficult shots. If you ever take your cues to play pool elsewhere, a cue case is a great way to keep the cues protected while traveling. The last thing that is strictly a nicety is a stool or two. Having stools makes pool more enjoyable and relaxing as you enjoy an evening with friends and family.
Poker table - card games of all sorts are probably responsible for some of the oldest game tables around. For poker it is always good to have a great chip set and quality playing cards. Some optional things include a card shuffler, and a card shoe for holding cards. I you like roulette, you can get the whole set up: wheel, balls, a rake and markers. That would definitely bring a new aspect to game night!
Game tables can be a great way for friends and families to enjoy quality time together. Having the right accessories can make that experience more enjoyable. So next time you consider purchasing a game table, make sure you take into consideration any other things that you may need to have the most fun possible.
