Classic games like foosball, pool/billiards and darts are good game room games. Any of these games can increase the fun factor of any game room. The games should add to the vibe of the room and ultimately offer an enjoyable place to get away and relax without having to leave home.
It is important to choose the right types of games for a game room to be a success. Table games like dominoes and poker are usually played sitting down, so having enough room for the table and chairs is necessary. Ping pong/table tennis, pool/billiards, shuffleboard and air hockey also require ample space. Arcade games like pinball machines make great additions and allow collectors the added pleasure of looking for and finding rare or vintage games.
Dartboards are another favorite, as they don't take up a lot of space. Serious dart players enjoy the variety of shafts and flights and the ability to personalize a dart to their throwing style. Both foosball and bubble hockey are well suited to smaller spaces. Many of the games mentioned here are customizable and can be made to match the game room's decor, allowing those setting up a game room to make the space entirely their own.
