    Default Thinking of buying a pool table - any advice??

    We're thinking of buying a pool table. Do any of you have one, and if so, do you have any advice? Do you use it a lot or is it not worth the money spent??

    Can you buy me one too? Always wanted one...then, had kids, and now, no room.

    I think you can sometimes find decent pool tables used...so maybe look online, or if you hear of a bar going out of business and they need to dump shit (a friend of mine got one that way once)...

    Have fun!

    My husband really wants a pool table and also wants to put a bar in the room too. That's a good idea about checking out old pubs.

    The full-size ones take up a lot of space so make sure there's enough room for both the table and players around it. You can also check out eBay for bargains but shipping costs can be high. As for how much use it will get, like all "toys" it might lose its novelty after a while but if you and your friends enjoy playing pool in a bar there's no reason why you won't enjoy it at home too. Great for pool table secks too.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Great advice. As for the last part - oh yeah, can't wait.
