The Best Multi-Game Tables of 2022

Game room tables are a great activity to bring the family together, but unfortunately, they can take up a lot of room. So much room that you’re often forced to choose which one you’d rather have.

However, for those who find it hard to choose between pool and ping pong, there is another option: multi-game tables. These wonderful creations are tables that accommodate two or more games, allowing you to switch the game you want to play whenever you feel like it. Some have as many as 12 games!

We’ll be sharing our reviews of what we think are the best multi-game tables on the market in 2022 and a buying guide to help you choose the right one for your rec room.

Best 4-in-1 Multi-Game Tables

1. MD Sports Multi-Game Combination Table Set — Best Choice for Traditional Foosball Lovers

MD sports multi game table

Specifications

  • Games: foosball, pool, air hockey, table tennis
  • Overall Dimensions: 54” L x 35.25” H x 24.5” W
  • Weight: 80 lbs
  • Uses premium materials: MDF, ABS, PVC, and metal

Kicking off this list, we have the MD Sports Multi-Game Combination Table Set, which features 4 games. It is the largest multi-game table featured. Therefore, it is suitable for children and adults alike.

Reviewers note that this multi-games table is well-built and a great value for the money. What’s more, if you can spare a little extra, you can get a 5-in-1 and 12-in-1 combination table as well. If you want air hockey, then we recommend you go for the 12-in-1 version as all of the other models use slide hockey which isn’t as fun. The main aspect that we love about this table is how easily and securely the games stack. This provides superior stability to tabletops that simply rest on the underlying table. The unit is also very well built — it has a thick frame and legs supporting the action!

The foosball is also of very high quality. The self-balance is a key feature if you are serious about playing the game. And the rods are made from premium steel, which measures 1/2″ in diameter. For the quality of foosball alone, the MD Sports multi-game table is up there with the best.

Pros:

  • Lightweight, but also has reinforced bases and a lock-in-place mechanism
  • 4 games to play
  • Games stack for simple storage
  • Self-balancing foosball men
  • Includes all required accessories
  • Leg levelers
  • No assembly required

Cons:

  • Slide hockey, as opposed to air hockey

Our Rating: 9.1

2. IFOYO 48″ Multi-Function 4 in 1 Combo Table — Best Space Saver

IFOYO 48 inch Multi Function 4 in 1 Combo Table

Specifications

  • Games: foosball, hockey, pool, and ping pong
  • Sizes:
    • Regular: 48” x 24” x 32” (L*W*H)
    • Folded: 49” x 24” x 31”(L*W*H)
  • Weight: around 51 lbs
  • Material: MDF (engineered wood), and PVC surface

Here we have a good 4-in-1 game table supporting the games of foosball, push hockey, pool, and ping pong. Assembly can be a bit rough and require some persistence. Once assembled, though, it will provide for a lot of fun for you and your family.

As with all many-in-one products, the game tables’ sizes are something in between, and may not be ideal for any particular game. This product is also on the lighter side, with a weight of around 51 lbs. It’s also relatively cheap, so you won’t have to break the bank to get it. 

IFOYO’s Multi-Function 4-in-1 Combo Table has solved the problem with multiple tables by designing a cabinet (the foosball pitch) that contains them all. All you have to do is lift up the foosball top side and remove tables until you reach the desired one. We also love the fact that the table folds upright so that it takes up less space. This is the only product on the list with this function. Therefore it is the ideal table for those looking to save space.

This IFOYO multi-game table comes with a 90-day warranty which you could perceive as a benefit, but we feel it is on the short side. 

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • 4 games to play
  • Games stack for simple storage
  • Can store vertically to save space
  • Includes all required accessories

Cons:

  • Tough assembly
  • 90-day warranty
  • Slide hockey as opposed to air hockey

Our Rating: 8.5

3. Triumph 4-in-1 Rotating Swivel Multigame Table

Triumph 4-in-1 Rotating Swivel Multigame Table

Specifications

  • Games: air hockey, billiards, table tennis, launch football
  • Dimensions: 48” L x 23.75” W x 32” H
  • Weight: 69lbs

We can’t say that you are getting the highest-quality multi-game table here, as some of the tables reviewed above have a better build. On the other hand, you do get to play 4 games with this one: air hockey, billiards, table tennis, and launch football (not so common addition elsewhere). 

The table also has an innovative rotating swivel that allows you to switch between the pool and the other games, thus saving space. It is a nice table for the price and will surely provide lots of fun.

Pros:

  • 4 games to play
  • Space-saving swivel surface
  • Includes all required accessories
  • Includes air hockey, not push hockey

Cons:

  • On occasion has missing parts
  • Not particularly strong

Our Rating: 7.8

 

Best 10-in-1 or More Multi-Game Tables

 

4. Sunnydaze 10 Combination Multi-Game Table

Sunnydaze 10 Combination Multi-Game Table

Specifications

  • Games: pool, slide hockey, shuffleboard, bowling, table tennis, foosball, chess, cards, checkers, and backgammon
  • Dimensions for billiards: 40” L x 22.5” W x 27.5” H (other games vary)
  • Weight: 59lbs
  • Material: Engineered wood

The Sunnydaze 10 Combination Multi-Game Table offers 10 fun games to pique your interest. 

All of the game tables stack conveniently between the billiard base and foosball, meaning they take up minimal room in your home. This is further supported by the table size, which is only 40”. 

A drawback to this model is the playing height of the games. All but the foosball have a height of 27.5”, which is a little short for most people. Therefore expect to have to hunch slightly if you are an adult. This may make it more fitting for children. Also, there’s no airpower for hockey, so you have to rely on your power to push the puck, which leads to less exciting games.

Sunnydaze offers a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty period with each purchase which is a sizeable chunk of time given its price. As such, we think it is one of the best combo game tables out there.

Pros:

  • Range of games to play
  • Games stack for simple storage
  • Includes all required accessories
  • 1-year warranty

Cons:

  • Slide hockey as opposed to air hockey
  • Cheap accessories
  • A little small

Our Rating: 8.3

 

5. Best Choice Products 10 Games 48 Inch Multi-Game Table — Most Stylish

best multi game table

Specifications

  • Games: slide hockey, foosball, billiards, shuffleboard, table tennis, chess, cards, checkers, bowling, and backgammon
  • Dimensions: 48” L x 24” W x 30.5” H
  • Weight: 57lbs

This 10-in-1 multi-game table by Best Choice Products is the perfect table for the family. Unlike the Sunnydaze model, it has a contemporary wooden tabletop finish with black legs, which is far easier to fit in as home decor. It is also relatively strong, so as long as it is not abused, it should last many years.

 The sheer variety of games on offer is what makes this table so great. Whatever your mood, there is a game to play! Whether it is a fast-paced game of table tennis or a more casual card game, you are spoilt for choice. We also love that the games stack easily and securely, which is a quality many models simply fail to deliver.

The main drawbacks to the Best Choice Products multi-game table are the cheap accessories and slide hockey. But for its inexpensive price, we can hardly complain. 

Pros:

  • Range of games to play
  • Games stack for simple storage
  • Includes all required accessories
  • Fits with home decor

Cons:

  • Slide hockey as opposed to air hockey
  • Cheap accessories

Our Rating: 8.7

6. MD Sports Multi-Game Combination Table Set — Top Overall Pick

best multi game table

Specifications

  • Games: air hockey, foosball, hover foosball, knock hockey, shootout basketball, ping pong, bag toss, archery, chess, checkers, backgammon, and dice
  • Dimensions: 48” L x 22.75” W x 32” H
  • Weight: 51lbs

There’s a lot to like about this multi-game set. It is a definite upgrade on MD Sports’ 4-in-1 model in many respects. For starters, there’s the increased availability of games. You’ve got a staggering 12 games to choose from, more than any of the other featured tables. These games include some rarer picks such as bag toss and archery which is a huge plus. But hover foosball, in particular, caught our eye. Using the air power from the hockey field (which is an advantage in itself), traditional foosball transforms into hover foosball. A more fluid, faster game that will likely have you never wanting to play regular foosball again! 

However, it does fall short in a few areas relative to the 4-in-1 version. Namely, the strength of its build is some 30lbs lighter, and as a consequence, it is not strong. The design is also not to everyone’s liking. Whilst it feels right at home in a games room, we couldn’t imagine it as a permanent feature in say, the living room.

We also like that all of the accessories store neatly as there is a lot of them. All but the archery set fit in the mesh bag that attaches at the table’s front. Instead, the archery bow and arrows rest on the table’s support beam.

Pros:

  • Range of games to play
  • Games stack for simple storage
  • Includes all required accessories
  • No assembly required
  • Includes air hockey, not push hockey
  • Leg levelers

Cons:

  • Striking design may clash with home decor
  • Not as sturdy as other models

Our Rating: 9.2

How to Choose the Best Multi-Game Tables

There are several different types of multi-game tables. And it can be difficult to decide which is best for you. This section will explain some of the differences and advantages of each kind of combo table.

How Many Games Can You Play on a Multi-Game Table?

It depends. Multi-game means more than 1. But often, the minimum are 3-in-1 game tables. Given that you can only play a few games on these, the best 3-in-1 game tables should provide very high-quality play, or they are not worth the money. However, we found that 3-in-1 games tables are pretty few and far between — 4-in-1 game tables are far more common. Multi-game tables tend to top out at around 12 games which is plenty to keep you entertained. Of course, you can even buy extra accessories to play more games on them. 

Pool (Billiards)

The pool table surface of multi-game pools isn’t made of the normal felt material you would expect. Instead, it’s typically made out of Tetolon cloth — a cheaper material that many consider sub-par. It is also difficult to level the table, ultimately making it challenging to play a controlled game of pool.

A major drawback that you should be aware of is that multi-game pool tables are not full-size. Reviewers frequently voice their disappointment upon witnessing the unexpectedly small size of their tables. To see our top picks of the best pool tables, check out our guide.

Table Tennis

A drawback of multi-game table tennis tables is that they are typically split into three parts. This results in a gap on both sides of the table that can affect gameplay. Unfortunately, this can interfere with games which can be a little disappointing. Most multi-game table tennis tops are also rather thin. This means they are not as fun to play on as full-size tables.

Air Hockey

Air hockey is a must if you want to play good quality hockey. For cheap multi-game tables, there is no airflow, often referred to as slide hockey or push hockey. This is far inferior to the standard air hockey you know and love. So always check what type of hockey it is before you buy.

Even with air hockey, you may notice dead spots due to poorly drilled air holes which is a nuisance. Some manufacturers suggest using a small drill bit to clear any blocked air holes in such cases. It may be a fix, but it’s an annoying drawback, given that it shouldn’t occur in the first place. You might find our guide for the best hockey tables for dedicated air hockey tables useful.

Avoid Poor Quality Accessories

It seems to be a common theme among multi-game tables that the accessories that come with the tables are of relatively poor quality. Paddles, pucks, and cue sticks are all quite cheap, and you would be better off buying a separately sold set along with the table.

Multi-Game Table or Conversion Top?

First, you need to decide whether you want a multi-game table or a conversion tabletop. A multi-game table will have the features of each game built into the table. At the same time, a conversion top is a separately sold top that you simply place on the previous table (i.e., on your pool table) or even over a common dining room table.

What is the Best Multi-Game Table?

The best multi-games tables will feature many games to play but not scrimp on quality. Having reviewed all of the tables available, at this time, we feel that the 12-in-1 MD Sports Multi-Game Combination Table Set is the best table that you can buy. But we are aware that it may not be ideal for everyone.

Pay attention to the features you want for each game, and don’t simply purchase a table because it offers many games. Push hockey is the standout feature we see that indicates corner-cutting. While these tables can still be great, push hockey is a massive downgrade on regular air hockey.

We recommend you also check out buyer reviews to see what others say. They often provide useful insight.

What is the Price of Multi-Game Tables?

The cheapest you can expect to pay is around $150, with the most expensive tables costing more than $1,000. These are often full-size pool multi-game tables. 

However, you likely won’t need to spend this much. With a budget of around $500, you can more or less take your pick as most multi-game tables will cost less than this. Multi-game tables vary wildly in price though for many reasons such as build quality, size, and the number of games offered.

Do Multi-Game Tables Comes With Accessories?

Yes, all multi-game tables come with accessories. Some may not include all that you need to play every game, but most do. However, be aware that you may need to buy additional accessories for some games if parts become damaged or missing. For instance, it’s not very difficult to lose a foosball ball, and ping pong balls crack after repeated use.

How Much Room Do You Need for a Multi-Game Table?

This depends on what games you will be playing. Generally speaking, you get pool with most multi-game tables, and as it takes up the most space, we will base our figures on this. For full-size pool, we recommend 5′ of clearance as the minimum space around the table. However, as these multi-game tables are much smaller so are the pool cues. We estimate around a 3′ clearance on all sides should be sufficient. Of course, if you are not going to play pool, your space requirement lessens quite a lot.

Is a Multi-Game Pool Table Bigger Than a Ping Pong Table?

Multi-game pool tables are smaller than ping pong tables. Even the largest models top out at around 75” L x 37” W, whereas full-size ping pong tables measure 108” L x 60” W, so there is quite a difference.     

You may also find that the ping pong table top is slightly larger than the pool play surface for your given multi-game table. This is because some models have the table tennis tabletop rest on the pool table (with slight overhang) rather than slot into place. 

Can You Put a Ping Pong Tabletop on a Pool Table?

Separately purchased ping pong tabletops, or conversion tops as they are commonly called, are a great way of having a pool table with ping pong. But you need to be aware of issues you may face — the size of your conversion top.

Conversion tops tend to match the full-size playing area of standard table tennis tables. This is why we recommend purchasing a full-size pool table (88” L x 44” W) if you use a conversion top. If you choose not to get a full-size model, there will be a lot of overhang, making the conversion top unstable.  

Setting Up a Multi-Game Table

Unfortunately, there is no blanket guide we can provide for setting up multi-game tables. Depending on your model, you can have a short or lengthy setup process. We recommend paying close attention to the product listing. Many of the simpler tables will indicate a quick setup.

Below is a well-explained video showing the building process of a particular multi-game table. This should give you a good idea of the process you will likely have to undertake.

How to Transform a Pool Table Into a Multi-Game Table (Table Tennis)

If you already have a ping pong table at home and don’t want to trade for a combination game table but still want to play different games on it, there is still hope. Trying to convert a table tennis table into a multi-game one is a bit awkward. Therefore, the best approach here is to do the inverse, i.e., convert some other table (let’s say, a pool table) to a ping pong one.

There are kits for transforming your pool table into a table tennis table — and you can always build one yourself, DIY style. On top of it, you could even add another layer for air hockey. However, you’ll have to rely on its smooth surface to move the puck instead of airpower if you don’t install fans (otherwise known as slide hockey). Unfortunately, converting a pool table into a foosball table or another arcade game will probably remain an unfulfilled dream. It would simply take too much work.

The first step to creating your multi-game table tennis table begins in the hardware store. Have them cut you a plywood piece (4’ x 8’, ¾” plywood), which they will further need to cut in half. Then get yourself some stain, polyurethane, nuts, bolts, and corner braces. Attaching the two pieces with the corner braces is a fairly easy job that will result in a flip game table. This lets you easily remove the ping pong tabletop when switching games to pool.

You can go with a pre-made table tennis net for the net, or you can attach some other material to replace it. Ideally, you want to shoot for a net height that correlates with the length of the table. One that is too high or too low will noticeably affect your games!

If the whole DIY process is too intimidating for you, a better option is to purchase a premade table tennis top. Check out our article where we review several of these, or give it a search on Amazon in the Sports & Outdoors section. An advantage to this is that you can always return your table tennis top if you have an issue (while it’s under warranty). 

How to Transform a Pool Table Into a Multi-Game Table (Air Hockey)

Creating an air hockey table from one of the best game tables is complicated and certainly not for the faint-hearted. For air hockey, you need to have a wooden frame around your existing plywood piece (which you cut to the same dimensions but not in half) so that your puck doesn’t go out of the field of play. Then you need to drill miniature holes (say with a width of ¼”) to enable the air to escape from. 

An air compressor (‘blower’) is then installed to power the game. The frame must be well-built and air-tight. Otherwise, air will leak where it is not supposed to, leading to poor pressure and slow air hockey games.

If you are not confident in your DIY skills, converting a pool table into a multi-game table for table tennis is a much easier task

Simple plywood also has the benefit of accommodating any standard board games you are into: backgammon, chess, checkers, and the rest. It will provide fun for the whole family. Failing this, you can just convert your dining table into a gaming table in no time at all. It’s how many of us got started with table tennis!

Conclusion

We hope this guide helped you choose the best multi-game table for you and what to look out for if none of the tables on this list caught your eye. It can get rather confusing with so many different games offered with inadequate descriptions provided by the seller. If you are going to do your own research and find tables that were not featured, simply take your time and refer to the “How to Choose the Best Multi-Game Tables” section. There is lots of useful information there that is vital when selecting a multi-games table.
