But, for those who are finding it hard to choose between a pool and a ping pong table there is another option: Multi game tables. These wonderful creations are 2 or more games tables in one giving you the ability to switch which game you want to play and stop the kids from getting bored.

In this post, we’ll be sharing our reviews of what we think are the best multi game tables on the market in 2020 as well as a buying guide to help you choose the right one for your rec room. Let’s get started.

How to choose a multi game table

There are a number of different types of multi game table and before we get to our reviews and recommended ones, we’ll be explaining some of the differences and advantages of each kind of combo table.

Types of games

Multi games tables means exactly that, multiple games in one table so it’s important to have a think about which games you actually want to play.

Multi Game Table or Conversion Top?

First off, you need to decide whether you want a multi-game table or simply a conversion table top. A multi-game table will have the features of each game built into the table, while a conversion top is generally a separately sold top that you simply place on top of the previous table top, or even a common dining room table.

If you’re looking for a Ping Pong table top for a pool table, you have a lot of options. We’ll go through each option, describe why you might prefer one option to the other, and our opinion as to the best model or type that you should buy.

Pool (Billiards)

Well for starters, the Pool table surface isn’t made of the normal felt material you would expect; instead it’s Tetolon cloth, a cheaper material that many have mentioned to be sub-par. In addition, it’s difficult to level the table ultimately making it difficult to play a controlled game of Pool.

A major drawback that you should be aware of is that the table is not full-size. Others that have purchased this table and have mentioned their discontent upon witnessing the small size of the Ping Pong table. Seeing how Table Tennis, Air Hockey and Pool (Billiards) all have different size tables, it’s obvious that the manufacturers would have to choose a common size for all three game types.

Table Tennis

Speaking of the Table Tennis table, due to the ability to switch between game types, the table is split into three parts which results in a gap on both sides of the table that can affect game play.

Air Hockey

While the Air Hockey capability is one of the main aspects of this table that people enjoy, people have noticed dead spots towards the center of the table as a result of poorly drilled air-holes. If this becomes a problem, the manufacturer suggests using a small drill-bit to clear any blocked air-holes, but it’s an annoying characteristic that we feel should have been fixed long before going on sale.

Poor Quality Accessories

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

Great Multi-Table But Has Some Difficulties.

Overall, the Fat Cat Original 3-in-1, 7-Foot Pockey Game Table is a great choice if you know what to expect. You shouldn’t purchase this table if you want a full-sized game table, but it’s going to be almost impossible to find a 3-in-1 multi-game table that provides all three games at max dimensions so that draw-back should be overlooked.

Multi Game Table Reviews

Now that we’ve covered some of the features and things to consider before buying we’re going to cover which specific multi games tables we recommend.

  • DIMENSIONS - 84 x 46 x 31 inches. Pool Table playfield: 74.75” L x 36.75” W. Table Tennis...

We found the best Ping Pong Pool Table under $600 dollars to be the Hathaway Maverick 7 ft. pool table with Table Tennis. This table has received great reviews with users noting how surprised they were at the quality of the table. It’s no surprise that a full-size Pool table will cost three times as much at this table, so the fact that so many people have noted the great quality definitely says something about the table and the manufacturer in general.

Specifications:

  • Pool Table playfield: 74.75 in. L x 36.75 in. W x 3/4 in. thick MDF with durable high quality red felt
  • Table Tennis playfield: 84 in. L x 46 in. W x 1/2 in. thick blue two-piece top with black edge trim
  • Silver laminate top rail with 1/2 in. white inlay sights and chrome-plated corner cap
  • Reinforced rubber cushions provide accurate and fast ball rebound
  • Black matte laminated side and end panels with black ABS molded corner connectors

Therefore, it is our opinion that the best conversion top is made by Maverick. Maverick specializes in these types of tables, focusing on the knowledge that customers are looking for a relatively good Ping Pong Pool table combo for the family that won’t cost thousands of dollars but will still provide a high level of play. That’s what you have here, but there are some characteristics that people have noticed to be sub-par, such as the accessories that come with the tables.

Up next we have the Fat Cat Original 3-in-1, 7-Foot Pockey Game Table. While there are some defects or minor annoyances that consumers have noticed, overall this is one of the best 3 in 1 game tables available.

  • Pockey Table Overall Dimensions: 80in L x 44in W x 32in H / Weight: 268 lbs
  • Playfield Dimensions for Billiards Table: 70in L x 34in W / Playfield Dimensions for Air Hockey Table: 74in L x 38in W with 110v motor with the airflow of 80 cubic feet per minute & manual scoring/ Playfield dimensions for trifold table tennis 84″L x 42″W

#4. Triumph 72” 4 in 1 Multi-Game Swivel Table

  • Rotating swivel table allows you to switch between hockey and billiards in seconds
  • Two-sided conversion top board that easily flips over to change from table tennis to launch football
  • Includes 2 red air hockey pushers, 2 red pucks, 2 48” billiard cues, full set of billiard balls,...
  • Includes 2 table tennis balls, 2 paddles, a net and post, 2 field goals, and a mini football

In at number four we have the Triumph 72-inch 4-in-1 swivel table. This table has the ability to transition between Table Tennis, Billiards (Pool), Air Hockey, and Flip-It Football. While this table may not be full-size, it’s perfect for younger children. If you are looking for a multi-game table for adults, this is not the table for you. This is a relatively cheap combo table that is designed with children in mind.

  • Play four exciting indoor games on one table; air powered hockey, billiards, table tennis, flip it football
  • Patented swivel technology allows for quick and easy game changes
  • Patented locking system firmly holds the table top for consistent play
  • Accessories included
  • Adds excitement and hours of playing time to your game room
  • Accessories included for up to 2 people to play each game
  • Leg levelers included to adjust the table height for consistent play

However, that doesn’t mean that this is a poor quality table or that your child or won’t enjoy it. On the contrary, this is one of the best selling combination tables available. The Air Hockey version is actually air-powered, unlike some of the other models available which deceptively describe Air Hockey capabilities but forget to mention the lack of powered air.

Not only that, but it has built in leg levelers in case the ground is uneven, and a patented locking system that firmly holds the table top for consistent play. Overall, this is a good low-priced combo game table that should be purchased with the intention that a child will be using it the majority of the time.

For under $600 dollars, quality increases dramatically but you’re still going to run into a few noticeable problems. There are multiple options available, and you can readily choose between a higher quality Ping Pong Pool table combo or a multi-game table with a few games available for you to switch between.

We’re focusing on the Ping Pong Pool table combo, because at this price point the multi-game tables that are for sale simply don’t cut it in our opinion. At this price, it’s possible that you’re trying to find a table that will be sufficient for adults as well as children, and the multi-game tables available at this price, such as the Triumph Sports USA 84” 3-in-1 Combo Table, have less than stellar reviews.
