A Pool Dining Table is the New Dining Table





A pool dining table is the best compromise when you want a pool table and the only place in your house for it, is the dining room. Because of this the pool diner is usually a very impressive piece of furniture and looks good whether in dining mode or pool table mode. The only fly in the ointment is that the height of a pool table is slightly higher than a dining table by about 3 inches or so. So remember this when ordering chairs for it. Often the pool dining table manufacture supply chairs as well at the correct height.

Another solution to the height problem is having a rise and fall mechanism to elevate the table when in pool playing mode and let it fall again for dining. This is very common in the snooker dining table as well. This does add somewhat to the cost however.

Now these tables are not cheap, but they do serve a dual purpose and the way to look at it is that you don’t have to buy a dining table as well (anything to talk yourself into it) and they do look rather special when you see them up in your dining room. But before you rush off and get one, check you have the room for one, add 10 ft to the table dimensions to get the ideal cueing area around the table, so for a 7 ft pool diner you will need a room of 17 ft by 14 ft to allow for playing the game.

There are different methods of achieving the dining and pool transformation, some tables are what you call swivel tables, where the table top is literally swivelled in place to reveal the pool table area when converted to playing mode, or a simple table top is supplied to cover the pool table when dining. Both are effective, and the big advantage of the swivel table is that there is no table top to lift off and put back on, the disadvantage of the swivel table is that there is a wood frame all around the pool table playing area so it looks like the pool table has been placed on top of the dining table.

The designs of the pool dining table encompass both traditional and contemporary looks to fit in with your décor so you can match up one with your room no problem at all. Just imagine having friends round for dinner then clearing the table ready for a game of pool in minutes, the best of both worlds, but beware you may end up inviting people for dinner much more often.

Birthdays have always been associated with children since adults seem to be too busy to take part in their own birthdays. However, if you are hosting an adult birthday party, you will most definitely want to make it complete with some amazing birthday games. The fact is that contrary to what many people think, there are lots of birthday games suitable for adults making all the difference to the party. There are popular options you can settle for or try the more unique ones to add a beautiful twist to the party.

Birthday hot seat

It can be fun as the birthday guests are put in the spotlight to evaluate how well they know the host. Questions are fired to the players on the hot seat in a set time and the player with most correct answers wins. The questions can be made as funny as possible to keep the game hot enough.

Laughing game

It is a laughing game, but the player who maintains the straightest faces for the longest time takes the win. A laugh is naturally contagious and it will be fun trying hard not to laugh when everyone else is doing it. The elimination is done strategically as the laughs continue until a winner is determined.

I love you game

It is an amazing game to break the ice in a birthday crowd. People simply sit in a circle and one player stands and walks to a person of choice demanding for a smile of love. The approached person must resist giving the smile no matter what gimmicks the player uses to encourage that smile. Smiling people are eliminated and the last person sitting wins the game.

Puzzle games

They can be made up of different challenging puzzles that put the brain to work. In fact, the winning secrets are always so clear, but the harder the players try to think through the puzzles the harder they become. They are mind joggers and can be lots of fun as long as the interest is there. They are suitable for those who can't take part in vigorous games during the party.

Inflatable games

They can be anything from sumo suit wrestling and sumo football, to giant jumping castles for adults. Other options in the category are giant slides, cash cube, dunk tank, giant twisters and bouncy boxing. They are among the more active birthday games that your guests can take part in to have some unique fun. The best thing is that all the items can be hired at very fair prices and to accommodate the number of guests taking an interest. If you are the host, you can ensure that the fun goes on to the end by hiring as many adult games as possible for a more active outgoing birthday crowd. You cannot miss out on the sumo suits since they are hilarious even before the game begins and everyone will enjoy wearing one and taking part in the games that you settle for in the suits.
