At Century Billiards and Game Room, we strive to find out the latest trends or “what’s hot” in the billiard, pool table, game table community. A recent trend that we have been noticing is that more and more restaurants, bars, pubs and residents have been inquiring and purchasing Shuffleboard Tables.
Shuffleboard Tables: A Brief History
The game of shuffleboard dates all the way back to the 1500s when it was made popular. It was played and loved by the upper class. According to shuffleboardmccluretables.com, Henry the VIII is recorded as having lost a game to Lord William. Since then, King Henry the VIII banned the lower-class commoners and soldiers from playing. He believed it to be an unhealthy distraction to them. Ultimately, this completely backfired and shuffleboard became a huge tavern and bar activity. Instead of being reserved for the upper class, the commoners would often go down to their local tavern and enjoy games with other common folks.
Shuffleboard Vs. Table Shuffleboard: What’s the Difference?
Table Shuffleboard differs from regular shuffleboard in the sense that you use your hands to glide the weights down the table rather than using a cue. What’s great about shuffleboard tables is that now you can bridge the generation gap and enjoy playing with it with your entire family (grandkids and grandparents included).
