Games To Put In Your Man Cave

Man Cave Games

Man caves are made as a sanctuary for you and your guests. Adding functional elements to the man cave make for a more enjoyable experience. There are some really fun games that can be played in a man cave, we listed our top choices.


Pool is a popular man cave item for a few reasons. A pool table adds value to a man cave by enhancing the look of the man cave. Out of all the items on this list, the pool table is the most aesthetically pleasing. More importantly, pool is actually fun and can be played with a game in the background. A casual game of pool does not distract from the main event and is a popular game for betting. For some reason a lot of people play pool for money. Regardless of the why, it makes for a more entertaining and engaging game.

Ping Pong

Ping Pong tables are not as good of decorations as pool tables. However, ping pong is a higher-paced game. Ping pong is a great game to add to the mix of man cave festivities. If you like ping pong more than pool, why not go the table tennis route? Plus, you could definitely get both as you continue to add to your man cave. Pairing the two together would give your man cave more functionality and really allow for a good time. Every item you add from this list increases the potential for your man cave.


Foosball is another classic example to add to the man cave games list. Not only is foosball sports adjacent, but a perfect indoor game. Foosball is on the smaller side of man cave games. This game might be the best featured man cave game for people who do not have a ton of space to work with. Pool and ping pong tables take up a good amount of room, foosball does not.


I have mentioned dart boards a few times on our man cave page. They fit perfectly into the idea of functional decorations. In other words, they look great in a man cave setting, and they actually can be used unlike the memorabilia on the wall.

A dart board is a popular addition to any man cave. This is a simple game that is fun to play indoors. You can play during the game without missing any action. Dartboards add to the atmosphere and usage of a man cave. The Viper Shot King is a regulation size dartboard, perfect for anyone that takes these tournaments seriously. The package comes with six steel tip darts. If you want to see more information, check out the Viper Shot King on Amazon.

Basketball Arcade Game

Do you remember those arcade games where you would make as many shots as you could for a minute against your friend? Well you can actually buy those now and add them to your man cave. I wanted to include a link but Amazon’s options are a quite ugly. This item does not appear to be super accessible elsewhere either. However, if you do find a way to land this item, it would arguably be the best addition on the list. The game is super fun and great to play against your friends. Also, the kids would absolutely love it.

Arcade Games

Arcade games can be great additions to a man cave. Some man caves are entirely arcade themed. The arcade theme has extremely high potential and can end up looking incredible when it’s all renovated. However, arcade games are not just for arcade themed man caves. You can put a few fun games in just about any man cave, even a sports theme. I like the idea of having arcade games, especially if you have kids. Here is a great product I have mentioned in another article.

1Up Mortal Kombat At-Home Arcade System (4.3 Stars)

The Mortal Kombat At-Home Arcade System is Amazon’s Choice for arcade games. The system is only $299.99 and has three different Mortal Kombat games. It is made to be played with two people which is great for the kids. This system made the list for the Arcade Man Cave but would fit into other man cave bar ideas as well. A lot of movie theaters have arcade games so that might be a good fit as well.

Beer Pong

Beer pong is an extremely popular drinking game that most guys love. This is an easy to set up drinking game that would be a fun side event at a football watch party, or something like it. Most people stop playing beer pong after college, but that should not stop you and your friends from having a good time. I already wrote about the best beer pong table out there.

GoPong 8 Foot Portable Beer Pong (4.3 Stars)

This table strays away from the pack. I have been focusing on tables centered around food and grilling. If you have that covered already, this a table that is focused on livening up the party. The GoPong table is absolutely perfect for just about any table based drinking game. The surface is waterproof which makes for easy cleaning and the underside has a foam holder where you can store six ping pong balls. GoPong has a four different designs that can be seen on Amazon.
