It’s official winter is here, Spending more time indoors comes with its own challenges in the colder months, as we set into our hibernation modes. However, we believe there is a whole host of positives when it comes to staying inside, a major positive for us is gathering friends and family by organising a cosy games day. There is nothing like a bonding session over a good game, showcasing your skills and perhaps winning a few! Plus, a fun-packed gaming day or competition keeps spirits up and provides joy to those who may be missing the seasonal warmer months.
With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best at home games for you and the family to explore. If you are looking for some gaming inspiration we have timeless go-to options to keep everyone entertained, and perhaps encourage a healthy competition or two! We know it is currently hard to meet up and invite friends over due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so we’ve included a few online options too, keep playing together, keep up the communication and keep making memories.
A classic for a reason, lose yourself for hours during a family pool tournament. We have a vast array of pool tables, that are suited to everyone’s needs. From traditional tables, you may find in your local (perfect for those who are missing the pub) to convertible dining tabletop options, so you can work and dine from home, but transform your space for a game of pool in an instant as soon as you clock off.
One of the many advantages of having a pool table in your home is that you can practice and build up your skills. When the pubs do eventually re-open, we can guarantee you’ll be top of the leaderboard.
Whether you have an air hockey table at home or are playing online, air hockey is as addictive as it is simple. We have fun themed options and classic designs from the likes of Buffalo and Namco if you are looking to add a fast-paced gaming addition to your home. You’ll just need one other player and quick reactions as you both battles to score. We can guarantee you’ll be addicted to this after a few rounds – thank us later!
A game that has stood the test of time, you can’t beat a good session of table football. Part skill, part speed, a table football game may also bring some added nostalgia. We have the largest range of football tables in the UK for you to explore. If there are more than two of you, we recommend starting a competition table, inspired by the Premier League.
