Retro Game Tables are Back in Style

In the good old 1950ís, no home was complete without a table with four matching chairs in the family room or den, where we could all sit around and play games.  Whether it was board games like Monopoly or card games, family and friends gathered around and had a good time.  Of course, this was all before the advent and meteoric sales of radios and televisions. Although the 1950ís was a good time for the game table, their beginnings go a lot further than that.

In the 18th century, most homes had a game table made for the family room or living room.  The most basic of models featured a top that opened and spun to form a square table, however many more game tables were elaborately made using the best and most exotic woods and many were ornately designed.  Later models even featured many trimmings including wells for gaming chips and or holders for drinks.  However, in the 1900ís game tables lost their popularity.

Fast forward to 2007 and there is now resurgence in the popularity of the game table.  Probably because Americans are spending more on finishing their basements and creating elaborate game rooms in their homes.  Game tables are now available not only at the local antique shop or flea market, but reproductions are popping up everywhere.  Checking the Internet we saw small game tables for just over $300 to more elaborate game tables going for thousands of dollars.
