We had a pool table when I was young, and I really loved playing it. In fact, I would play it for hours and hours on end.

Pool, actually takes a lot of concentration and focus. I think it's a great game for kids.

If you don't have the money or space to get a full size table, you can get a little bit smaller one and still have a lot of fun with it.

For any friends and guests though, espeically youngsters, make sure that they know the rules of playing and respecting the table. Otherwise, you'll quickly end up with stains, scrapes and other damage.
