To outfit your game room, first choose your game: chess, checkers, backgammon, and card games are all popular. Chess is an intellectual game and chess furniture is sophisticated, bringing to mind images of long, thoughtful conversations over casual yet intense battles. Checkers has a lighter tone and is more kid-friendly, so checker tables will make the game room a place for the whole family to gather. Since checkers and chess use the same game board, multi game tables offer the best of both worlds. Some also include a backgammon board. Look for tables with a drawer for holding the game pieces, so they will always be at hand when someone is ready for a game.
Card tables are a mainstay of game room and bars. They usually seat four people, and can be used for much more than card games. Any board game, dice game, or domino game can be played at the tables as well. Options for card tables range from folding tables and chairs that can be set up, dismantled, and moved as necessary to grand octagonal tables with insets for poker chips and beverage glasses and adjustable, rolling chairs. There are poker tables that rival the best chess tables in style.
Accessories for the game room and bar will help tie everything together. If you have a pool table you will need cue holders, and extra bar stools are helpful when you have a crowd. Comfortable chairs for your game tables will encourage people to sit and play. Hang some artwork to complete the room, then sit back and enjoy your hangout space.
