It’s the weekend or the weekday and you’re looking to have some relaxing good times. Avoid long lines, sticky floors, overpriced drinks and high-calorie pizza! Grab your friends and family for a round of VR table top sports like table tennis, pool, foosball, ping pong, air hockey, darts, shuffleboard and even skeeball! First time VR gamers will get a kick out of these stress-free, no-combat games. Enjoy!

VR Table Sports

This is a zero pressure way to experience VR at home and a great starter game for a first time VR user to play. VR Table Sports is a 3-in-1 table sports game that has foosball, table tennis/ping pong, and air hockey! Slap the air hockey pucks around and angle it just right so players online or an AI challenger will miss it. Try a round of ping-pong with a background that’s set in the Oval Office, a gym, or a living room. Play a game of foosball with a famous president or two, and interact with a taunting emoji mask to brag about winning or a sad crying emoji to sulk about losing.

SportsBar VR

Instead of dishing out money to go to a bar, play in a virtual one instead! Play a game of pool with friends at home and online, or play solo against an AI challenger. Don’t lean on the virtual table, it isn’t real! Walk around the bar, throw some darts and play shuffleboard to kill some time. Grab a buddy to play air hockey and throw some bottles in the air or smash them on the ground to celebrate a closeout shot! Feeling lonely? Play online with other VR gamers and work towards daily challenges to earn prizes. Make your avatar look like a doughnut, cheeseburger, or other wild things. SportsBar VR has added a puzzle game like Puzzle Treasure Hunt and a reflex game Chained Reaction to the pub mix.

It has 10 mini-games like darts, bowling, air hockey, skeeball, light guns, whack-a-mole, and basketball toss if you want the full family fun center experience.

Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR

Whoever said table tennis isn’t a sport never played against a robot that’s been designed after a professional table tennis player or an insanely good online player. Racket Fury has 16 stylized (they come with tempers — not sentient) competitive robot-AI challengers that will challenge your pong skills across 2 modes: full simulation and arcade mode. There are 4 Cups, or 4 chances to emerge as the Crown Galaxy’s top Zen player. Be warned, the higher up in skill (Cup) you go, the more difficult the hits and bounce techniques are going to get! If you want to gain actual skill instead of playing recreationally, boost the difficulty settings.
