Have Fun with these Den Games
All you need are some jacks, a flat surface, and a bouncing ball. The goal is to scoop up one jack then two then as many as you can until you mess up in between the ball bouncing. Jacks can be really fun and it’s an awesome way to have fun with friends. It’s fun for kids as long as they are old enough to play and not swallow the jacks (seven and up at least). It may seem childish, but it’s actually a challenging game and it’s great for getting your mental abilities going.
Billiards refers to a variety of cue sports that can include pool, snooker, Carom billiards, three-cushion billiards (the most popular version of Carom billiards played globally), English billiards, right and nine-ball in pool, pin and bar billiards. If you want to play any of these billiard sports, you can use a specific type of table called a billiard table. You can get your own billiard tables in Calgary fairly easily for your den. There are plenty of Canadian billiards tables in Calgary to choose from, so take some time to decide exactly what you want rather than rushing to buy one.
Funnily enough, relating to the next category, electric billiards was actually a term for pinball!
Pinball is a really fun game that involves placing your hands on either side of a pinball machine and playing. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past fifty years, pinball is a game where the silver ball is put into play and bounces off of different bumpers. The goal is to keep the pinball from going down the exit gutter at the bottom using two flippers operated by your right and left hands. It’s a game of coordination and often involves flashing lights and different themes.
Poker (and Poker Tables)
Poker is a popular game that is played around the world. There are many different styles of poker that can be played, and one of the best den games to play is Texas Hold ‘Em. Getting a simple card table or even a special poker table with markings and felt is a great way to be able to play.
Video games of any console and type are a really fun den game! No matter what age category you fall into, it’s a great way to have some fun in your rec room. Video games are even proven to improve reflexes and critical thinking thanks to all the storylines, responses, and the interactive style of playing.
