Shuffleboard Table Reviews:Table shuffleboard is a game that is growing in popularity. Mostly scene at bars across America, there are now nice shuffleboard tables available for home purchase. In our review of indoor shuffleboard tables, we will guide you through the various types of tables, brands, and pricing. The game itself is often called shufflepuck or slingers, so keep those names in mind while searching for a table. The tables themselves range in length from 9 to 22 feet and are typically 20 to 34 inches wide. Make sure you measure any room that you want to place one of these shuffleboard tables in to make sure there is plenty of space. Quite often we see them put into basements or bonus gaming rooms in larger homes. Assembly will be required on all the brands that we reviewed. Most consumers noted that assemble was not too difficult but that having 2 people for the process is a good idea. Many also said that buying shuffleboard wax or spray is important. The 'wax' or spray will help keep the friction to a minimum and allow the puck to glide down the board much easier.
Choosing a Shuffleboard Table - We will begin by saying that tables are sold in all price ranges. We found the Atomic Platinum Shuffleboard for $570 with a basic abacus styling scoring, pedestal legs with levelers and a solid play surface with poly-coated top. Owners say the table holds up quite well and it's a good 'budget model'. Stepping up in cost, you find the Playcraft Coventry Shuffleboard Table for $1500-$2200 (depends on size of table and color options). The solid hardwood butcher-block playfield has 10 coats of lacquer for the finish, so you get a smooth, consistent surface. The one difference on expensive tables vs mid-range ones is the material used for the play-field. The vertically staved play field features one layer of wood (often maple), which are joined side by side to create the perfect fit. The vertically staved joinery resists warping much better than the butcher block style tables. The GHUD-016 16-Foot Grand Hudson Shuffleboard Table is a great example of craftmanship with 3 inch thick maple polymer playing surface - needs no resurfacing. Yes, this table sells for a bit less than $4000, but it's professional quality and is often seen in bars or businesses. Those that want that same experience in their homes should consider it. Where can you buy these at? Many people ask this question to us since they are not carried at your average store. Shuffleboard.net is a good resource online along with Amazon.com. Both websites have dozens of tables to choose from within a wide range of pricing. We found some local bar/game/supply stores that carry the tables, but mostly for the high end professional ones only. Shuffleboard table reviews - It's always a good idea to read what other consumers have to say about a particular brand or model # before buying it yourself. Amazon.com is the best in the business at supplying consumer feedback and opinions for the products sold on their site. We suggest checking out the owner comments as posted on Amazon to see which shuffleboard tables are top rated by actual users.
