Need advice on getting a miniature foosball table
« on: December 24, 2021, 01:48:46 PM »
Hello everyone,

I grew up in Europe but am currently living in the Philippines (married to a Philippina). We have two wonderful kids and Iím thinking of getting a foosball table to get them away from their damn phones and laptops. I initially wanted to invest in a table tennis table, but space is very scarce here, so I would have nowhere to fit it. For that reason, Iím hoping there might be like a smaller-sized foosball table I could get my hands on - I know itís not a perfect solution for physical activity, but itís better than nothing.

The problem is, when I was growing up, my friends and I only played on foosball tables in pubs and bars. I never knew anyone who had one at home, so Iím not sure if there even is such an option like a smaller-sized or miniature table. And Iím in a hurry.

Things are becoming scary - I love my kids but the other day I looked over my 16-year-old's phone and found a link to an online casino ( I donít think heís gambling yet, but I donít think heíd avoid it either. So, this doesnít have to be like a full-blown pro-level table, but more like something I can use to reconnect with my family. Please advise!

I love the "micro tables".   Goalie rod could be 1 or 3man,  Fullback rod should be 3man like this one ==>> a mini goalie-war and forward-shoutout table in one!    This may not be what you were "thinking of" re: a miniature table, but having a half length table with commercial rods, men and "playing characteristics" can get the kids learning professional foosball skills and hopefully hooked for a lifetime of fun.
