Game Room Resource Page

This is it, the page that contains links to all recommended products from different game room stuff on my website.  Although I would prefer it if you go to those sections and read, if you’re in a hurry you can just pick the best product below just as easy.  Hopefully this will provide a good quick reference guide when you’re shopping for different options.  Some of the links are affiliate links, which means I might get a small referral fee to help pay for this site.  I appreciate everyone visiting this site and hopefully it’s been helpful to you.

Bubble Hockey

Best option is Super Chexx Pro from ICE due to its best in class quality.

Second best option is Carrom Super Stick Hockey as it’s the most affordable option and still maintains some quality.

Third option is the Shelti line, the Shelti Slapshot.

Gaming Consoles

Best option is to get either the Xbox One S or PS4 for your child.  Which one depends on what his friends have (you want them to be able to play online together).

If your child is too young for online games or doesn’t have online friends yet, the Nintendo Switch is a decent choice.  It’s also the best portable choice.

Pinball Machines

For the newest pinball machines, Stern is the best company to buy from easily.  Deadpool, Iron Maiden, and Guardians of the Galaxy are their latest games.

Jersey Jack Pinball makes very high quality games with price tags to match.

Spooky Pinball makes affordable games but the quality isn’t as high as the other two manufacturers (yet).

Dart Boards

Gran Board 2 and the newest Gran Board 3 are the best electronic dart boards.

Foosball

Tornado is easily the category winner here.  They make 4 tables ranging from the affordable to pretty high end.  I recommend the Classic table if you have the money available.

Warrior makes a pretty decent foosball table here.  It’s a pretty good option if you need something cheaper than a Tornado.

Pool Tables

Pool tables are tough.  They don’t hold their value really well and they’re super heavy, which kind cause issues because moving a used table isn’t easy.  For new tables I’d go with a Brunswick like this one:

Brunswick 8-Foot Danbury Pool Table with FREE Contender Play Package Accessories and Contender Cloth – Price Includes Free On-site Delivery and Professional Certified Installation

It would be a great table for a long time.  If you’re keeping it forever, it doesn’t matter what the value is really, just that you’re getting enjoyment out of it.

Table Tennis ( Ping Pong ) Tables

For Table Tennis tables, there are a lot of good options since they’re not too complex.  The best option is probably this one for home:

STIGA Advantage Competition-Ready Indoor Table Tennis Table with Excellent Playability, Easy Storage and 10-minute Assembly

The best mini table for small spaces is this one:

JOOLA Midsize Compact Table Tennis Table Great for Small Spaces and Apartments – Multi-Use Free Standing Table – Compact Storage Fits in Most Closets – Net Set Included – No Assembly Required!

If you need a full size one that you can move around, then this might be a good option.  I actually own this one in a different color.  While the center line leaves a little bit to be desired, it’s still really fun to play and easy to put away (basically folds into two suitcases)

Franklin Sports Table Tennis Table – 9′ x 5′

Table Tennis Paddles

I don’t think you can go wrong with this great bang for the buck set:

JP WinLook Ping Pong Paddle – 4 Pack Pro Premium Table Tennis Racket Set, 8 Professional Game Balls, Spin Rubber Bat, Training/Recreational Racquet Kit, Accessories Bundle, Portable Cover Case Bag

Shuffleboard

For shuffleboard, it really depends on how big you want to go, but I would suggest these for the different sizes:

16 and 22 foot models:

Playcraft Telluride Pro-Style Shuffleboard Table with Electronic Scorer

12 foot model

Playcraft Woodbridge Shuffleboard Table

Arcade Games

The big thing in arcade games right now is buying these 60 in 1 machines, either bought new or a modified older game.  Personally, while I think the older modified ones are cool, they also charge way too much for them most of the time so you’re better off just going new.  My favorite new one is this one:

Cocktail Arcade Machine 60 Games in 1 Commerical Grade with Set of 2 Chrome Stools 5 Year Warranty

Air Hockey

The best commercial quality air hockey table you can buy for your home is:

Valley-Dynamo 8ft Pro Style Air Hockey Table with Overhead Scoring

The best non-commercial quality air hockey table you can buy is:

Brunswick 7ft Air Hockey Table – Windchill

Poker Tables

Best Economical Folding Poker Table:

Barrington Poker Table

Best Wood Poker Table:

Hillsdale Nassau Poker Table

Poker Chips

Poker chips are kind of a commodity, but I like this set for ones with a case:

320 Piece Poker chip set

For just a cheap set, you can just get these:

100 Piece Poker chip set

Popcorn Machines

Best popcorn machine for commercial use:

Paragon Classic Popcorn Machine

Best popcorn machine for home theater:

Paragon Theater Pop 4 oz
