3. Fun Air Hockey Games To Play. Don’t Slip Up.
Air hockey is another great game to play which is great for teams of 2 each side or even 1 vs 1. Air hockey is a game that can be played by most ages and also most skill levels. Your main aim of the game is to slide the puck into the oppositions goal using a plastic mallet which you slide on the table.
5 Sliders : This will test your hand and eye coordination while producing a ton of laughs. Before the game each player gets 2 pucks each and 1 is on the table.
