1 — Foos Is LoosE
The rough-and-tumble game of foosball gets classy with this cherry-finished Oxford table by Sportcraft. Its elite touches include carved wooden players, wooden balls, a faux grass table surface, and a storage compartment underneath. Best of all, the table is so swank that your opponent will never expect you to jab him in the nuts with its handles. $879, orvis.com

2 — Able Table
Show your pals you take Ping-Pong—er, table tennis—very seriously with this high-end table from Chicago-based Killerspin. A glare-resistant blue powder coat means no more claiming, “I lost it in the lights!” while its sturdy two-part, 410-pound construction eliminates volley-ending wobbles. So you’ll have no excuses for losing in pathetic 0-11 blowouts. $1,999, killerspin.com
