Sure, air hockey is a great game – but what do you do with an old air hockey table?
Like most people, you probably just let it sit in the basement or garage, gathering dust.
But you can do a few things with an old air hockey table! Here are a few ideas:
Donate or sell it to a local thrift store
Tired of that old air hockey table taking up valuable real estate in your basement? Didn’t think so.
Instead of just leaving it there and hoping it’ll be helpful again one day, why not use it?
Donating or selling it to a local thrift store would ensure it’s going to a forever home that appreciates secondhand items.
A still-working air hockey table can bring hours of fun to many people, and the revenues generated through the thrift store could help those less fortunate.
You can even say you got a bigger bang for your buck – after all, you’re giving something out of nothing this time!
Donate it to a local school or community center
If you have an air hockey table sitting around and collecting dust, why not give it some new life?
Donate it to a local school or community center.
The kids will get a kick out of the game, and maybe you’ll even inspire the next generation of Olympic-level athletes!
Plus, think of how proud you’ll be knowing that your old table is helping others.
It never felt so good to clear out the clutter.
Use it as a coffee table in your living room
If you’re looking for a unique solution to spice up your living room, why not use an air hockey table as your coffee table?
Not only is this sure to make an interesting conversation starter amongst your guests, but it’s also a great way of spontaneously adding a bit of fun and competition to get-togethers.
Who knows, maybe you’ll end up hosting a regular games night with your friends and family.
Plus, the best bit is that when the coffee’s finished, there are always more pucks!
And not just coffee -you can also use it as a kitchen table or a buffet table.
Just use your imagination, and you can make a unique statement in any room with an old air hockey table.
Turn it into a planter for your favorite plants

It won’t come with a blower, but it will bring serious style to any garden or patio.

Everyone will discuss this creative transformation that gives retro gaming components a new purpose.
Turn it into a game table for board games
