Outdoor Air Hockey Table? You Bet!

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Ok so here at Liberty Games we sell a great range of outdoor games tables, which can handle pretty much everything the British weather can throw at them. But one thing we thought might be a bit of a stretch would be an outdoor air hockey table – until now!

Why a bit of a stretch? Well air hockey tables generally use electricity. Outdoors (certainly in the UK) often involved rain. Rain = water and water and electricity are not the best of friends.

Although there are a number of electrical devices which can operate safely outside, it was always assumed that by the very nature of an air hockey table making one weatherproof would be quite a challenge. Air hockey tables work by using a powerful fan to drive air through thousands of tiny holes in the play surface – which when combined with the ‘cup’ design of an air hockey puck – create a cushion of air which the puck floats on.

Why would this be a problem? Because when the air isn’t turned on these little holes provide the perfect way for water to run down into the workings of the table…

Well they did – until now! The Tempo Outdoor Air Hockey Table has been specially manufactured with a unique conical air flow design which means the water can’t make it down while the air can make it up! Combine that with a a water-resistant lacquered cabinet and an internal drainage system and you’ve got one tough air hockey table!

Not only is the table waterproof though, its also manufactured to give a top-notch game of air hockey, with precision engineered top rails.

So if you are looking for an exciting new addition to your outdoor space for this summer, then look no further than our brand new weatherproof air hockey table!

Angry Birds Outdoor Action Game – Coming Soon!

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Angry Birds Outdoor Action GameCalling all Angry Birds fans! Those pesky pigs are back, but this time they have leapt out of the digital world and into your garden!

That’s right, although we’ve seen these cute little fellas in plush-toy form before, they now come ready to bring their full-on adventures into the real world.

The Angry Birds Outdoor Game premise is the same as the hugely popular video game, with your job being to guide the egg-deprived birds through the air to take out their pig nemesis. The pigs are sat upon wooden blocks just like in the game, except this time there is a score board to reward you depending on where the piggy lands – with being near the target more rewarding than far away. The winner of each round gets a star with the winner of the game the first one to the agreed number of stars!
