Top 6 Items for Your Game Room

Whether you call it a game room, a parlor, a lounge or a man cave, the idea is always the same: It’s a place to unwind, have fun and swear vengeance against the paperboy for his terrible aim.</br></br>(Disclaimer: This is <em>not</em> an article about the room where you keep the stuffed heads from your last safari.)</br></br>One of the coolest things about game rooms is (or should be) the freedom you have to make what you want out of it. It can be well-coordinated or look like a dive, it can be modern or clasasic, it can have a sports theme or no theme at all, and so on …</br></br>But, with all that freedom comes responsibility; the responsibility to provide a basic level of “fun functionality” to your game room. Otherwise, it’s not a game room – it’s just another basement. So, with that, we take a look at the Top 6 game-room accessories.</br></br><strong>1. Entertainment Center / TV</strong></br></br>Let there be music! And sports! And karaoke capability! Whether it’s a boom box with a busted speaker or a full-blown high-end digital experience, you need to have some entertainment to set the mood and fill in the background.</br></br><strong>2. Home Bar</strong></br></br>Loosely defined, the <a title="Home Bars" href="http://www.atgstores.com/home-bars_1068.html" target="_blank">home bar</a> is a place where you can store refreshments. It doesn’t need to be a scene from “Cocktail” every day after 5 p.m. in your garage, as nice as that may sound. It’s just a way to keep you from having to shuffle back and forth from the kitchen to keep all the whistles wet.</br></br><strong>3. Comfy Seating</strong></br></br>Game rooms are for relaxing and people who relax standing up are in the minority these days. <a title="Couches" href="http://www.atgstores.com/sofas_1003.html" target="_blank">Couches</a>, <a title="Recliners" href="http://www.atgstores.com/recliners_1015.html" target="_blank">recliners</a>, <a title="Bar Stools" href="http://www.atgstores.com/bar-stools_1069.html" target="_blank">bar stools</a>, beanbags … Just put comfort first and the rest is sure to follow.</br></br><strong>4. Pool Table</strong></br></br>A <a title="Pool Tables" href="http://www.atgstores.com/pool-tables_1754.html" target="_blank">pool table</a> is an anchor that keeps a game room from drifting into rumpus-room territory. Maybe you don’t even play pool. Okay. But, it <em>is</em> a game room, is it not? Billiards is definitely a big commitment in terms of cost and game-room real estate, but it doesn’t get any classier.</br></br><strong>5. Dartboard</strong></br></br><a title="Dartboards" href="http://www.atgstores.com/dart-boards_2118.html" target="_blank">Dartboards</a> are great because they’re affordable and space-efficient. Even the thick, heavy <a title="Bristle Dartboards" href="http://www.atgstores.com/bristle-dart-boards_2118_oa1213342.html?linkloc=catheader&amp;gpid=590919" target="_blank">bristle boards</a> that call for real darts are easy to come by, a snap to install and offer a big return on fun-time investment. But, if you’re worried about your walls and bad aim electronic boards are also an option.</br></br><strong>6. Poker Table</strong></br></br>Your <a title="Poker Tables" href="http://www.atgstores.com/poker-tables_2555.html" target="_blank">poker table</a> doesn’t need to have felt on it or come in a weird hexagonal shape, but you definitely want a place where you can play a few hands of whatever’s hot. If you’re short on space, an old-school folding card table may be the way to go, anyway.</br></br><a title="ATG Stores Homepage" href="http://www.atgstores.com/default.aspx" target="_blank">ATGStores.com</a> wishes you luck making your game room the most popular spot on the block.
