Leeds, West Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 21 October 2013
Simple to use, enjoyable for family and friends, it doesn't take up much space and can be bought for less than half the price of a games console. A table football game (or foosball table for American and European readers), can be the perfect 'family present' this Christmas, but knowing how to find the perfect table for the home can be confusing and daunting.
Rene Pierre has been making the highest quality football tables since 1952 in the small French town of Salon-sur-Saone, situated between Macon and Geneva in the Burgundy region of France. They're now available for the first time direct in the UK, which makes it a perfect time for the company to give back some of its experience of what does and doesn't work, after more than 60 years of manufacturing.
The Rene Pierre UK, 'Guide to Buying a Table Football Table' is available for direct download from the company's website.
The guide will take readers through all the major components of a modern football table and explains the options available and why one option might be better than another. With 13 pages of original content, anyone interested in buying a football table this Christmas may wish to make a point of reading it as soon as they can.
Here's some of what's included in the guide:
1) The two differing styles of leg design and how each can affect playability, and why having a table with leg levellers can cause huge problems
2) How the cabinet can not only make a major difference to the way the table looks, but also the way it plays
3) Why the play field is the most important part of any table football game, yet in too many cases it's simply not considered, and which of the three most common play field types will work best
4) The differences between the two types of rod (or bar) and which is best, especially if younger children will be playing or in close proximity!
5) Why the balls and the players can make or break a foosball playing experience
Mike Hemmins, Director of Rene Pierre's UK importer and distributor, American Billiard Co, commented: "Whilst playing table football can be one of the most simple and entertaining games around, making sure the consumer gets the right table to continue having fun for many years to come, is not so easy. This guide helps anyone looking at buying a foosball table for Christmas (or indeed any other time), identify the right type of table for them, and their home."
