When renovating your home or thinking of what to do with a spare room, a gaming room may be an idea that springs to mind. But then comes the next problem, what should you put into it? Many choose the usual things like a gaming chair, a big screen, or a projector, but why not get something that can be used when you have visitors? In this article, we’re going to push the boat out and find three things that will transform your gaming room from isolation central to a friend-inclusive paradise.
You might think that bingo is just for the older generation, something that your parents could enjoy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The online version has exploded in popularity, with many gaming websites offering specific bingo apps or a range of games, such as Rainbow Riches. These games give users the chance to interact with several different bingo-themed games with varying mechanics, ranging from Megaways to Slingo. The fun and variety found in modern online games can be replicated in your house as many physical bingo machines come with unique bingo cards and even illuminated screens.
Your bingo machine won’t take up too much space, so why not add a multipurpose gaming table? Rather than limiting yourself to one table game that fills the room, these handy tables allow you to save space while offering freedom of choice. Whether it’s poker, backgammon, chess, or shuffleboard, these sorts of tables have plenty of options to suit your mood and that of your visitors. Some have over 13 choices of games so you’ll have options to suit all kinds of tastes.
Electronic Dart Board
If you want to embrace the future then an electronic dart board is the way to go. Electronic dart boards not only do all the mathematics and numerical gymnastics so you and your friends don’t have to, but they also offer plenty of different versions of the game such as “Around the World”, where you hit each number on the board in ascending order, or “Mulligan”, where you hit six numbers three times and then aim for the bull. For more inspiration, Decathlon Blog goes into more detail about the different types of dart games you can play.
The best part about it is that you don’t even need your friends there to play with you. With an internet connection, some machines allow you to take on competitors around the world, there are even online leagues like those on Dart Connect. So if you’re having a day to yourself, you could fire up the dartboard and make friends on the other side of the world.
If you’re wondering what to do with the spare space in your home, having a gaming room is a great way to transform the area. Rather than limiting yourself by relying on the traditional PC setup, just adding a few versatile games and gadgets in there can help you turn the room into a great place to socialize.
