Who doesn't like a good game of air hockey? Unfortunately, like other table games, air hockey requires a large amount of space to play. This limits the game from some of the places where it could be most popular--college dorms and small, studio apartments filled with groups of twenty-something roommates, to name a couple. Given the need for large, electric equipment, it's also a rather expensive game.
Bringing air hockey to new places, Portable Air Hockey is played with a self-powered puck that can hover and slide across any smooth surface. Taking the need for a dedicated table away, one can now play air hockey anwhere that a regular dining room table or even smooth, hardwood floor exists. And without having to buy a full set-up you can get your air hockey game on for just 14 bucks.
It's hard to say how well it mimics a real game of air hockey, but for that price, you don't have much to lose.
In addition to the hovering puck, the game comes with 2 air hockey strikers and 2 cardboard goals. The puck requires power from 2 AAA batteries.
Air hockey can now be played where it belongs--in small, cramped spaces among young, rowdy folks enjoying varying levels of intoxication.
